“Likesdecentfood”

Written on: 27/05/2013 by Likesdecentfood (1 review written)

Overall a good experience and would return but needs to improve on following... Walked into restaurant, no-one there to greet you. Waitress ignored us. Had to go to bar to get attention. Restaurant was freezing, turn the heating up! Once meal ordered very difficult to get further attention of staff. Lack of follow up on additional requirements. This is a great place but please be more responsive to your customers. I nearly lost my voice trying to get your attention!… Read Full Review

“Family Friendly and FAB Food”

Written on: 16/06/2012

I visit this pub on a regular basis and after an amazing Jubilee Celebrations Weekend with Fantastic atmosphere and food, I felt I wanted to let The Star know how much fun myself and my family had. I was shocked to see the previous comment and this is obviously one poor comment since the new people have taken over... The children's food is great and the food I have had since visiting the Pub has always been Excellent. Granted sometimes there is a little wait for the food but this I'm told is… Read Full Review

“A well-run pub that is going places”

Written on: 31/10/2011 by Horatius (1 review written)

My wife and I go walking in the area regularly, and since it re-opened we always look forward to a midday meal at The Star. This large pub is set in beautiful countryside and offers terrific views. You can enjoy these from the garden or from the spacious conservatory restaurant, or you can retreat to one of the snug areas near the bar on a cold day. You can count on a warm welcome, and be confident that the real ales will be top-notch, as the new landlord cares passionately about his beers… Read Full Review

“AN OLD INN WITH NEW OWNERS AND SERIOUSLY UPGRADED FOOD”

Written on: 12/10/2011 by evantine (10 reviews written)

Since this inn is located in the most beautiful location, we have been waiting anxiously for it to reopen after a long period of closure. Sitting in that lovely garden looking out over glorius Monmouthshire views - we were missing that. It reopened a few months ago, and is being run by John and Julie. It would be impossible to overstate the level of service. This young couple are intent on pleasing their customers, making them welcome, and ensuring many repeat visits. There are several menus… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2011

Went for a meal following the re-opening on 2nd May 2011. The new owners were very welcoming and the restaurant was reasonably full for a Thursday evening. The bar has a good range of cask beers and the menu is excellent with a good range of specials - the slow cooked belly pork was fantastic.

Over the past two years The Star has been blighted by several tenants installed by Enterprise Inns. The new owners are doing a great job to revive the fortunes of this long established rural pub and… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2010

Dear oh dear - this pub has just changed hands (tenants I think) for about the third time in the past two years and no improvement. Offputting start when we were asked for our credit card in return for a plastic key - this is rural Monmouthshire where everyone knows your name. Very pleasant waitress but with no knowledge of the menu, the beers on offer or where the ingredients were sourced and offered a vegetarian choice of leek risotto - which had no rice in it! Only 3 diners so atmosphere… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2009

Booked a table at The Star Inn on a Saturday night to find that they had only one member of staff and 3 of their 5 a la carte dishes were sold out. This wasn't 10pm at night but 7.30! This is the 2nd time we've been here and there have been problems; the last time the chef was off and the food took forever to come… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/10/2006 by John Edwards (1 review written)

At Tuesday lunchtime, The Star Inn Restaurant at Llansoy in Monmouthshire was totally empty and remained so except for us and one other couple. While we were waiting ages for a menu, we could hear shouted obscenities coming from the kitchen. Not a promising start!

We thought we'd try the restaurant as finding vegetarian lunches is difficult and The Star Inn is recommended in various vegetarian guides. Our Butter bean with Cider Casserole came with a small portion of vegetables (we ordered new… Read Full Review
