No light in Gents loo. Forgotten drinks order. Awful piped music. Food good but not amazing. It felt like the staff were not that bothered. Probably not bother going again

we had dinner with friends on Saturday night. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and very well presented. Our waitress was lovely, helpful and friendly. All of the staff were very welcoming. The only negative was there wasn't a huge amount of atmosphere as there wasn't a huge amount of other diners so it was quite quiet - not always a bad thing! We will definately return

A lovely family meal with superb attention to our needs (4 variations needed for the same main course!) Dean is a great host and and we wish the team much deserved continued success. The starr never fails to deliver, looking forward to our next visit, thank you.

We had a lovely evening as a group of work colleagues. The private room was perfect for us to sit and chat. Buffet food was tasty and a good variety. Staff were very attentive. Would certainly return and recommend.

We held a celebratory meal for 36 colleagues, the staff at Fultons were fantastic especially with so many of us arriving at once, we were made to feel relaxed our drinks were brought round and then we made our way to the function room. All the food was excellent it was served up quickly, it was hot and beautifully presented. I cannot rate the Star /Fultons enough - thank you Dean and staff a fabulous evening x

The staff couldn’t do enough for me and 11 of my family, normally in restaurants if your away from everyone your forgotten about but this was the total opposite. The food was also amazing. A real enjoyable experience and would definitely go here again

We have just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary in the private function rooms at the star. From start to finish Dean and Michelle made our celebration easy and stress free. The staff on the night were brilliant nothing was too much trouble. The newly refurbished accommodation is delightful very boutique and comfortable attention to detail with the finish of the rooms. I can’t speak highly enough of the star, atmosphere, venue, accommodation and the food this place is truly a hidden gem. Massive thanks to Dean, Michelle and the team.

Visited The Star Inn as part of a group bike ride and we were very well looked after. Great food, nice selection of drinks and very helpful staff. Really nice place with lots of room and outside seating - will certainly visit again.

Place was deserted- background music was intrusively loud . No lunchtime menu was a disappointment. Hardly surprising we were the only two customers for 2 hours!

We arrived and the service was good. ordered our food, one ordered the prawn and crawfish fritters which came as four small (Tesco like scampi) on a plate of greens and were burnt, one ordered the crab - teaspoon full and the calamari was cold. They forgot about one of the starters until we reminded them. Starters not cheap £8-£9 for the crab etc. Steaks were excellent however asked at the start what sauce we would like - did not tell us that the sauces were £2.50 extra we only ordered one desert as we were not happy with the food - this was the cheesecake and it was a disaster - nothing else I could say We will not be going back with friends - maybe if passing and wanted a steak

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.
