Fabulous welcome from friendly staff. A busy evening, but very professional waiter: attentive without being unobtrusive. Excellent menu and plenty of choice for me, a 'Lent' vegetarian. Good quality wine selection and cheese board. First visit for us but will definitely recommend to family and friends. Well worth driving a little further afield for this treat of a pub/restaurant.

Stopped in for only drinks on a recent Friday afternoon. Very comfortable, spacious bar area. Excellent selection of beverages and spirits. The dining area was set up for dinner and we were sorry we could not stay for a meal.

The food here is a level or two above normal pub fayre. In fact although ostensibly a pub The Star is closer to being a restaurant. The owner/landlord is a character but most importantly whoever's in the kitchen knows what they're doing, Recommended.

What a lucky find, tucked in the corner of market square, in the very picturesque town of Petworth. My friend and I collapsed in here after a frantic morning sightseeing at Petworth House and couldn't be more pleased with what we found. The atmosphere is excellent. As you go in the door, to your right, there is a very airy,... More

We come here a lot because it is a great place. The landlord is welcoming and witty and all the staff are very friendly. The food is really good: a mixture of traditional pub classics and imaginative, unusual dishes, all beautifully presented. We love the starters in particular. Service is good and I must mention that the loos are lovely!

Absolutely fantastic restaurant with faultless food and service. Refreshing to see staff who quite obviously enjoy their work environment and this was reflected throughout the whole evening. Wine served at exactly the right temperature and the pork cooked to perfection. Will return.

Whilst staying in Worthing in August 2016, I took a bus ride to Alfriston and popped into this lovely pub for a couple of pints. Fullers is one of my favourite beers anyway and the interior of the pub looked very nice although I elected to sit outside in order to smoke my cigar. The outside seating was pleasant anyway...

We stumbled upon this wonderful place called The Star while passing through Pentworth today. This Fullers pub was named the chains "Best Village Pub of the year 2016" and after enjoying time there, it is clear why this award was presented. We sat by the fire and enjoyed coffee, but we will be returning when in the area again to... More
