Real Ale Ray left this review about Star Inn

We feel extremely privileged to have visited this amazing Heritage pub. Vera, the landlady, runs this small pub single-handedly at the grand age of 82. I phoned up a week before our visit, to check the opening times. The pub has been in the family since 1917, when Vera's grandfather purchased the pub. The pub is one of seven to have appeared in every edition of the GBG. There was one ale to choose from, which was Castle Eden Ale. This was poured straight from the cellar and filled right to the top of the glass.
Vera told us that Castle Eden had stopped brewing their ales last Nov and Cameron's had recently acquired the recipe. We sat and chatted with Vera in the front lounge. The lounge consisted of wooden slatted bench seating along the walls, eclectic tables and chairs. There is a 1950's fireplace, plenty of mirrors and a photo of Vera's Father. The carpet in front of the servery had survived from the 1970's. If you want to use the outside loo, Vera hands you a large key on a piece of rope. The outside loo is also a piece of antiquity. There is a quiz night on a Wednesday eve, it would have been nice to meet some of the locals who frequent this amazing pub.
