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

Aug 2023 - pre-covid this pub sold up to 4 cask beers but that range has now been significantly reduced. Our reported comments, "2 pumps but only one on. TT Landlord. It will be replaced when it runs out. Intention of keeping at least one on." So expect to find Landlord but at times there might be a replacement beer.

Formerly the Totnes Castle, the Star reinvented 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 showed the pub's commitment to a changing range of real ale - but as we note above, this is no longer the case.

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.
