We went for a meal with my mother for her Birthday. The service was excellent and the food was as good. I wish we lived local as I'd be there all the time

I visit the Seven Stars Inn for lunch very often as its one of the best traditional roasts around! Me & my partner travel over 25 miles to eat here on Sunday. Would highly recommend... My sister & her partner are also becoming regulars!

Some improved decor since last visit and dining room is very nice. Toilets still need a makeover. Food is very good and service friendly. Would prefer the vegetables served separately as previously. Well worth a visit.

Nicely appointed local pub, eatery. Service was ok, food - rib eye steak was disappointing although have had better on an earlier visit. Would probably try it again but could have been better
