See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Formerly the Totnes Castle, the Star is reaping the rewards of reinventing itself as a gastro pub. The emphasis is not just on food though; there is an acoustic music night on Thursdays and the 'Anything Goes' club on the first Sunday of the month lives up to its name with everything from comedy to poetry. The growing number of pump clips behind the bar shows the pub's commitment to a changing range of real ale - even the pub's reading material includes the Timothy Taylor Times. Guest beers in July were Hammerton N1 and Purity Pure Ubu. Food served from 18.30 - 22.30. But don't give any leftovers to the pub dog. Signs advise you not to feed it under any circumstances! Various bottled ciders are also available but the Addlestone's Cloudy on pump is not felt to meet CAMRA's standards on what makes real cider. Beer garden. Bus: C11. In Jan 2021 the Dartmouth Park Neighbourhood Forum let us know that the Star, Chester Rd has recently (December 2020) been registered under the Localism Act as an Asset of Community Value.
