The Star Inn, Sparsholt - December 2020 Update, Christmas menus

on Fri, 11/12/2015 - 9:10am

At the heart of The Star is the traditional and relaxed bar with a range of real ales, lagers and a carefully selected wine list.

Dine in the Bar or the restaurant, from a seasonal a la carte or set lunch menu. Or if the weather’s good, why not sit in the lovely garden with its terrace and lawns? Matt our Head Chef changes his menus to reflect the seasons, thereby ensuring the freshest, tastiest seasonal produce is used to create the best dishes.

The accommodation is housed in a converted barn a stone’s throw away from the main pub, and offers 8 en-suite bedrooms, offering twin, double and family rooms. Combining contemporary with rustic style, the emphasis is on comfort with each room furnished with the highest quality beds to ensure an excellent night’s sleep. Rates from £65 per night. Free WiFi.
