Food was great, portions were for us a little over sized, not usually a bad thing but a lot went to waste. Overall had a great night.

Was here for a meal with friends. I had booked our table and was greeted and shown to our table immediately. Staff were very friendly and gave us ample time to look at the menu. We had the fish n chips and the portions were massive. Food was very tasty. Would revisit here again.

We ordered several different things off of the menu as there was seven of us. Two kids vegetable pasta meals that had absolutely no taste what so ever and Cajun chicken pasta which had such a bitter after taste that I had about 4 mouth fulls. Kids chicken nuggets and chips that the chips had been dipped in oil and straight back out, white and hard and chicken nuggets batter was mushy on the inside. Not a pleasant experience

As usual, great food and service.
Champions league final was on so it was a bit loud. However, after a couple it miraculously seemed to quiet down a bit 🍺🍾

Got a drink poured over me, my shirt has a stain I can’t get out. Wasn’t even offered a cloth to wipe it . Waiter didn’t even say sorry!! His response was.....these cocktail glasses are a nightmare! Food ok. Nothing special. Slow service. Waited ages for drinks

Lovely meal yet again. Few issues with home made fish fingers which got rectified without a problem. Got the tomahawk deal. Didnt come in the unual platter plate which took away the experience of it but it just tasted as nice as before. A number of crowds in which made it a bit noisier than usual but was still a good atmosphere and food amazing as always.

Been a few times and always been fantastic food and great value. Unfortunately I was left unimpressed on sat lunchtime. Ordered baked pot and tuna. I had probably 2 spoonful of tuna. Had to eat half the potatoe dry as not enough to cover both halves . Very limited salad and no coleslaw as stated on menu. Did not complain as my friend gets embarrassed and her food was fab. Happy with everything else and would go back as this is the only time I've had an issue

We went to the Lion and Star on Saturday night for a birthday meal and a couple of drinks. The staff were friendly and helpful, however after being seated and having our drinks order taken and brought to the table we were left for quite some time waiting to order food.

After approaching someone our food order was taken. The starters arrived and the “Indian Platter” was not as it is listed on the menu when we asked a staff member what was on the board she said she didn’t know and that it was probably because they had run out as they were so busy, which wasn’t apparent to us but I think they do takeaways now. The starters themselves were good portions and tasted nice despite this disappointment.

Two of the three mains were satisfactory, however a pasta dish that was ordered was very poorly presented and was undercooked. It also did not live up to its description on the menu. The staff were very helpful and asked if we would like to swap it, however the other two mains were already half eaten so we declined. A round of complimentary drinks were also offered but we said no as we were moving on for the evening.

I have been 4 or 5 times since the establishment opened and in all honesty there has always been some kind of issue, generally to do with food quality or wait times to be served/approached by staff. Due to this I will not attend the Lion and Star again. The staff are very helpful and do try but it’s not for me. It’s a shame as it could be a great place to eat/drink if they could get things right the first time.

No atmosphere . Food average pub grub. Not a place to have a formal meal. Travelled from London to have lunch with family.
Felt it was a working man pub.

Really enjoyed our night. Was a last minute change of plan so decided to come here. Staff were so friendly and welcoming, as though we were their only customers. My friends ate food and said it was delicious. My friend and I both lost our Gran nearly a year ago and are going out to toast their memory and Lion and Star is defintiley where we are going.
