Food was nice as anticipated (First visit), only slightly let down by bought in apple sauce and just a little bit over keen server (could have been new). Overall we will be back.

Visited The Star at Cotton -02/11/2020 - prior to Lockdown as a treat . We had booked for the Christmas Afternoon Tea for the end of November but this won't happen now . We had heard good reviews and seen on FB do keen to come . Food and drink : Beautifully presented. The shared fish starter was beautiful. Fresh ingredients. Great choice of dishes.My daughter had Katsu chicken curry . Cocktails- Asked twice for cocktail menu but couldn't be located. I was offered a couple of choices .The pornstsr Martini was divine!! Service: we booked early doors and staff welcome and attentive. High chair ready as requested when booking . Kids meal portion so big and we were provided with a doggie bag on request. Service: Excellent Atmosphere: lovely quaint pub with roaring open fires and twinkly lights that added to the ambiance. Value for money : I feel the food prices reflect the quality of the standard of food and dishes. My feedback would be dome better lighting in the car park , as we had a 10 month old baby with us I would definitely recommend The Star and cannot wait to visit again . Thank you so much .

Absolutely lovely as ever. My only complaint is that the meal was so big I couldn't fit in pudding! We've already rebooked for this Friday. By far my favourite place to eat for sure 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My wife and I took two of our children for lunch this week and enjoyed a very relaxed meal with great service. The food was good and the menu was varied which is great as two of us were vegetarian. My only criticism is the height of the beams in the restaurant as I hit my head twice, once going in and again going out. The criticism is of me as i forgot the beams were low!

Visit the star every year as highlight/s to our Alton towers break. Lovely place - great food. Few requests not acknowledging this year & service slower than usual but possibly due to extended number of guests. Still would highly recommend. Just hoped for bar table as requested on 2 occasions for melancholy sake.
