Called in for a drink and met with a smile from bar staff. Prices of drinks on the high side. Didn't stay for a meal but restaurant are looked cosy.

This pub serves great food and has a good bar area. We enjoyed relaxing here after a day of walking and would recommend staying here, as the rooms were clean and pleasant.

We visited for a Saturday lunch, and were surprised by how empty the pub was at first! The interior is beautiful, very olde worlde and atmospheric. The food was good, I had the pork belly with gnocchi which was a delicious combination and just right for a winters day, while my mum had a ploughmans which came with very generous... More

Stayed for friend's wedding which was actually held in the hotel. Nearly a disaster as they had problems with a gas leak the day before our stay and they contacted all the guests who were staying and informed us they may not be able to accommodate us they'd provisionally arranged alternative accommodation (the communication from Tom the duty manager was...

I visited this pub for a birthday dinner with my husband. I cannot fault it. The staff were very attentive and the menu was amazing. It featured all my favourite food and I found it difficult to decide. The waitress told us what was popular and what she felt was the best. My husband had the burger, he was asked... More

I have visited the Star Inn a few times with my family and it never disappoints. The menu is always great and the quality of the food is excellent!! I cannot eat gluten and the staff are very accommodating of this.

Right in the middle of Alfriston, which incidentally is tiny, great parking behind the hotel, nice efficient reception staff, and bar and breakfast management staff. Room was slightly old fashioned but very nice. Lovely linens, both in the bathroom, and bedroom. My only slightly negative comment, and they are dealing with it in the refurbishment in January, is that the... More

Dear jennykenny, I totally appreciate and understand your comments regarding the lighting in the rroms and we will be addressing this. We wanted to ensure that the lighting is in keeping with a cosy inn, and isn't too bright, but of course it needs to also be practical for our guests. We are delighted that you found the towels and... More
