We had a lovely lunch - our first meal out for many months - and enjoyed siting in sunshine on the terrace. My husband loved his sticky toffee pudding souffle - a real success! We'll be back. Alison

Staff are polite but very inattentive and you wait a very long time for service. The adult food is lovely, the children’s food is too fancy for children. E.g the burger is too big to fit into their little mouths. If they could improve their service it would be a good start. This isn’t a one off incident as I visited twice over the weekend and have visited before lockdown.

I spent a moment to look around the terrace to see people smiling and chatting with friends or family and it was simply heartwarming. The food and service were both faultless, as usual and we certainly picked the right venue to celebrate the end of lockdown. Thank you. Heather and Mark. X

Lovely spot, could have done with maybe another main option on the menu under the £20 mark. But food we had was lovely

Lovely setting, and service. Very limited food choice even for Covid times. Burger was delicious, but at £15 was too expensive. Would only drink there next time.

Arrived 5 minutes early got to table 20 minutes late. No one offered to take a drinks order but after 15 minutes managed to get attention and order. Food arrived 5 minutes before drinks. Food delicious.

Excellent food but very disappointing, slow service. We waited over 20 minutes to get our bill and a nearby table waited longer to place a drinks order. It took 20 minutes for us to place our food/drinks order and 10 minutes to be seated. Not what I expect from somewhere expensive

A really great experience. The food was excellent and the service prompt, professional and friendly. Our waitress Ney was exceptional and an absolute credit to your establishment. We will definitely be back and will certainly recommend The Star to our friends!
