We ate both Friday and Saturday night at the pub. Both meals were absolutely fantastic. The first night we were in the garden and the second night we were in the Courtyard. Definitely better in the courtyard as it was a little bit warmer. It was too cold in the garden at the top particularly so it would have been beneficial if there would have been some heaters or even blankets (which were available in the courtyard). Other than that it was a lovely evening. The waiting staff were lovely and everybody was attentive.

Service was a little bit slow but that’s to be expected on your first opening weekend! Other than that we can not fault it, staff were super friendly and the outdoor area was lovely and clean!

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 .
