“What can I say every time we eat here the menu and the food surpass our expectations. The atmosphere is congenial and always inviting. We need to move this pub closer to home.”

“As a group of friends we arrange an evening at the Star Inn, Treoes to catch up with some friends who were visiting from Australia.
It has been a number of years since I last visited this pub, but walking in to a much brighter and more welcoming decor was a great start to the evening. as a group of ten we took up a big area by the bar and as conversation carried us past our booking time, we were eventually guided to our table by the staff.
The food was excellent, and staff were very attentive. Leaving time between courses to continue talking but not leaving us waiting for the next course.
By the time we left the pub, we were the last customers and it was getting late, staff were obviously eager to close but that was never forced on us.
Thanks for a great evening and I will definitely be returning soon.”

“What a fantastic pub we called back in the summer and it was a delight so we came back and had a fantastic meal if you could say a pub was perfection this would be it. Fab service amazing food beautiful we will be back”

“Booked a table for 3 for 6pm. Just as well really busy. Only downside is the parking I had to have me friend to park my car as I arrived last and there was a white van blocking the very small carpark. Food straight to the main course. I had home made fish pie with vegetables. My friends had the hot curry half and half and chips, black pudding with some other things. We followed this by 1 panacotta and 2 cheesecakes with raspberries and strawberrys with vanilla icecream. Food was delicious. Must be under new ownership as they had young staff who were quite happy dressed with hornes for Halloween, could not fault them. We were sitting by the door, with the door open but it was very hot inside. Would go back here and eat again even being busy early in the evening could not fault the food or service. Did take a photograph of my dessert but did not know how to download it from my phone.”

“What a find this little place is. Don’t be put off by the exterior as it looks like a little village pub but once inside it is a little gem. It’s not the biggest of places but is tastefully decorated whilst maintaining the quaintness of a local hostilary. What really makes this inn great is the fabulous food. I have no hesitation in stating that I enjoyed one of the best meals I have ever eaten. I have had the good fortune to have sampled food from far & wide in so called “top” restaurants but the food at the Star Inn is truly beautiful & far surpasses Michelin star establishments. Throw into the mix fast efficient pleasant service and its a winner. The downside is I live over 3hrs away as I was staying in the area, so unfortunately I won’t be able to return anytime soon, otherwise I would dine their every night. Book in advance so your not dissapointed and enjoy.”

“The Star Inn is very close to home so I was delighted to find that the meal was excellent. We chose from the specials board and they were excellent. My husband had the scallops as a first course and they were cooked to perfection. Venison pie to follow was succulent and more than plentiful. Chips were served in a littly fryer and were crisp and hot. We were too full to eat a pudding but based on the rest of the meal I am sure that it would have been great.

Service was attentive and we were served at a comfortable rate. No rushing between the courses or having to wait a long time either.

Parking is at the rear of the pub and it is a little on the small side. Street parking very limited as it is in an old village.

Early booking is essential as this pub is getting to be very popular.”

“Mark, the proprietor, has achieved a wonderful restaurant with excellent food and good surroundings. The unusual menu has been well thought out to offer something for everyone.
Looking forward to trying his new pub, the Ivor, in Pontyclun. Thanks for s great evening.”

“We had a lovely lunch at the Star Inn, wonderful service off our two waitresses Hayley and Emily, the food was very good and outstanding value for money, still one of my favourite place to eat.”

“Pleasant evening spent in The Star.. Welcome good. Menu had a good choice both in price and content. Meal did not disappointment service excellent. Would definitely say it is worth a visit. relax and enjoy yourselves”

“Attended with friends after booking a table a few weeks ago.
The Star is a busy establishment and on arrival we found that the table was booked for yesterday and there was no room in the inn!
This was a mistake by The Star not us but what I will say is they took fill control of the situation apologised and explained they will feed us as soon as possible.
They provided us with the most outstanding nibbles (basically all of there sharing starter range) as well as drinks.
Quickly a table became available in the restaurant area and we moved.
ALL the food was OUTSTANDING and PLENTIFUL and the service exceptional.
We spent a good 4 1/2 hour’s and frankly can’t fault them. Yes a mistake was made, but they knew it was a Saturday night 8 hungry people and it was wet miserable and cold outside.
They dealt with the error effectively and took complete ownership, the service is fast and friendly, the food outstanding this is why they still have 5 star’s
Many establishment’s need to take a leaf out of their books!!
Thanks The Star see you soon!!”

“Have been here a couple of times now and love the food. The two meals for £10 is an absolute bargain – especially if you get the curry!! Yum! Lovely garden area with heaters too, perfect.”

“The atmosphere of the small country pub is cozy and warm, with friendly and attentive waiting staff, on this particular visit we were served by Meg (3), who made sure our glasses were filled and the meals were cooked to our liking. On top of this, the food served is always of a fantastic quality, and the portions ample enough to fill.
The desserts are truly something special in this place, and always leaves me wanting to visit again!”

“My husband and myself celebrated our annniversary here last on 27th August. We had a lovely meal served by Kim who was really pleasant and attentive, in delightful surroundings. The menu and wine list are extensive and very reasonably priced. If you have a big appetite you will not be disappointed as the portions are large and are served hot. I thank Megan Jeffries and Caroline Jones for their recommendations. We will definitely be returning and passing on our recommendations to others. Good luck to you all. It was lovely to eat in a pub with a “different” menu and to be made so welcome. “
