We were looking to have a two night break but not too far from where we live; somewhere quiet and restful. We were not disappointed. The village of Thrussington is small and charming. There are only two shops and one other pub, located around a village green. The houses were a quaint mix of 16th century to modern buildings. We didn't have to walk/drive far to have amazing views across the rural landscape of Leicestershire.
The Star Inn has a pleasant mix of original features and has been sympathetically extended to produce a large dining area. We ate here on both evenings and the food and service were excellent.
The pub has a selection of well kept real ales, the usual beverages and tea and coffee. The wine list is concise, but the variety and quality were good.
The staff and locals were very welcoming, creating a warm and relaxing atmosphere.
The bedroom was large, nicely furnished and tastefully decorated. The en-suite was also large,tasteful and clean. The room also had air-conditioning, which was a surprising feature in such an old building, which proved very useful during our stay. Another surprising feature was the electronic entry system, which made us feel very secure.
As this was a spur of the moment trip and our itinerary unplanned, the location of The Star was ideal, being central to various attractions.
