A massive thank you to Dean and his team for making a special day one to remember. Your thoughtful gift is much appreciated. This was a surprise birthday family dinner for my father in law. It’s taken 80 years for him to return to the home of his birth. The food and service we received were second to none. Thank you so much.

We were celebrating our 20th birthday as a business in a private dining suite at the Star and all of our team had a fantastic evening. The staff were attentive but discreet, the food was excellent, real top draw and at no point did we feel we'd out stayed our welcome even though we ran well over time. They even gave the taxi driver waiting to take people home a coffee while he waited an extra 30minutes. Excellent stuff and a massive thank you from Sally, me and the team.

This is the email I sent to The Star after our booking, I have received no response... If I had received anything back (let alone an apology) I wouldn't have felt the need to post this as I've been to the restaurant a few times prior and it's been lovely. Hi there I'm very upset to inform you that unfortunately, for whatever reason, the lady who served us today had no idea about the cake I'd ordered for my husbands birthday and after a bit of an ordeal, I ended up having to ask for it (after everyone had ordered their desserts) which ruined what was supposed to be a lovely surprise... The 'team' did not sing Happy Birthday to my husband as promised, it was just the lady who served us who rather embarrassingly, hadn't checked any of the information on my email which resulted in her stopping half way through the song because she didn't know my husbands name!... it was cringe worthy! We came in to celebrate a birthday with you and I ordered the cake from Bakewells on your recommendation which after what happened, I really wish I hadn't wasted my time and money! I absolutely HATE to complain but I was so upset after our visit to you that I just needed to make you aware of what happened because I don't really understand what went wrong... there were clear instructions in my email which I confirmed with you in advance but it all ended up going horribly wrong for no good reason.

Yet again an outstanding food experience at The Star Inn! Such a varied menu that it just encourages you to come back again to try something else! This was our 3rd visit, for a birthday celebration this time, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Food and service was 5 star. Well definitely be back.

As always, the staff are friendly but not intrusive. The atmosphere is just what we need for our monthly meetings in the upstairs room. Thank you

A regular visit for friends of mine and this was a perfect location for my family and I to meet for a birthday meal. Dunmow is in the middle of our home towns. The food was very good and the presentation excellent. Service was first class and as we were located in a room upstairs didnt feel left out waiting for someone to serve us drinks.

Fantastic level of service and quality of food as usual from the star. We love coming here as a family and as a couple when we get a chance... The kids eat free on a Sunday is a great idea and appreciated. We have now booked for Christmas and look forward to it!

A wonderful time spent with friends enjoying bottomless brunch & there was no holding back on the prosecco. We enjoyed excellent food from a varied menu & all locally sourced which is good to know. Great atmosphere & fabulous service, I would definitely recommend The Star Inn.
