The Star Inn, Sparsholt - Re-opening on Saturday, July 4th

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.


The Star Inn will be re-opening their restaurant (with seating in their garden, or inside, in the restaurant) and rooms, from Saturday 4th July.

Tables will be spaced at at least 1.5m inside and 2m outside and all bookings will be seated in the garden unless requested to be indoors.

We wanted to say a huge thank you to all our wonderful locals and customers both old and new - without your ongoing support for our takeaways we would not have been able to stay open. We are proud to have a community that supports us, and we are so thankful for everyone who has been with us on this journey!

We are so excited to welcome you back to The Star and we’re already working on a new menu to celebrate.

We can’t wait to welcome you all back from the 4th. Please use the below link or give us a call to book. See you soon!

In the meantime, The Star Inn Sparsholt are now offering a takeaway service. Call Matt for more details on 01235-751873

Collection is preferable, but if you are isolated or in need, if staffing allows we can deliver to the local area!! We are also able to order Veg boxes, meat boxes and other groceries.
