Visited on a Friday evening as a group of 10. WOW. The food was fantastic. No-one in the group could fault any part of it. I had the rump steak and it was cooked to perfection. We will definately be coming back to this place! The service was also very good. Highly recommended...

We had a Sunday Lunch with friends. Good menu, more than just a roast. The two men had beef cheek in Yorkshire Pudding for starters, I had poached pear and blue cheese salad. If anything the men's starter was too big and mine too small. Just a couple of slivers of pear and a few salad leaves. Mains were tasty.... More

We had a terrific evening at The Star at Sancton, the restaurant fuses upscale dining & cosy gastropub setting & the result is superb food, smart surroundings & a charming laid back atmosphere. Staff were all friendly & clued up & all courses tasty, fresh & nicely presented. Great choice of wines by the glass & a well priced children's... More

Our 2nd visit to The Star and 1st for Sunday lunch and we were not disappointed. Delicious meal enjoyed by all especially the rice pudding and cheese board. Great wine selection and lovely pub to be in at any time I should think but very fitting for a cold Sunday. The Star will always feature on our visits to the... More

The Star at Sancton is a real treat! We visited from the North Star club a short trip down the road and were not disappointed, it's absolutely worth the walk home in the dark if you're staying there. This is more than just your local pub - The Star serves a fantastic selection of ales and wines as well as... More

Visited for lunch with friends, as usual the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food is very good and beautifully cooked, if you have any allergies or specific diary needs they really do take extra special care with your meals. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

had the Yorkshire lunch yesterday, we still can't understand how they do this quality for the price, We always have this menu. Everything was faultless as usual and we will be back. The toffee sauce is the best thing I have ever tasted!

A really wonderful night at The Star once again! What a warm, welcoming atmosphere, great food and wine! I can't believe the previous review on 22nd October is describing the same restaurant. I can't wait for our next visit. Brilliant professional staff. Thank you for a memorable night!

This is the first time I have had anything negative to say about this restaurant, but the staff should focus on their roles and not visiting friends. To explain, in the eating area in the bar there appeared to be someone there who used to work at the restaurant. Every time Lindsey's back was turned the place stopped and the... More
