About the Pub

This former pub, and subsequently a struggling night club for many years, has recently been acquired and radically refurbished by Amber Taverns. It re-opened as a pub on 9th June 2016. Its new name is an oblique reference to Michael Arthur Bass, the first Lord Burton and great grandson of William Bass, founder of the Bass Brewery.

Internally, the well-furnished long, narrow single room stretches back from the entrance, with access to the beer garden at the far end. Much use is made of wood and wood panelling, including the bar counters down one side. In addition to standard tables and chairs, there are a number of 4-seater 'booths' and a few high tables and chairs. An unusual feature is a large old map of central Burton, with transport pictures, on a wall near the entrance. Some drink-related aphorisms can also be seen, together with Bass Brewery memorabilia.

TV sport is a speciality: there are no fewer than 11 wall-mounted TVs (plus another 2 in the beer garden!).

No pub car park, but there are public car parks nearby.

Historic Interest

On the site of the Star Inn, which dated back to the early 1800s and had its own brewery 1845-1870. While the original Star Inn is believed to have been demolished (date unknown), a pub of this name appears to have existed in 1960, and a sketch of this pub dated 1952 looks remarkably similar to a 1984 photograph of the Galaxy, the name of the pub at that time.
