About the Pub

A modern looking bar housed in the shell of the former Old Star Inn. Relaxed and friendly, it has two rooms at the front (the left area was at one time the separate vault) both well-appointed and comfortable with a mix of bench and other seating. These lead you to the middle section with high posing tables, some set atop wooden casks, others affixed to the wall; these have a bare brick wall behind them with a feature wall of tiny blackboard tablets labelled with the names of numerous drinks. In front of that is the bar featuring an array of handpumps dispensing both beers Hydes and guests. Further to the rear is another area laid out with tables that could be used for both dining and drinking; beyond this a full-width set of doors leads to the outdoor gravelled patio area. A nice touch to the history of the pub is that between the bar and this rear room, one of the former "Old Star Inn" etched windows forms a partition screen at the end of the bar. Bar food is served, this comprises sharing plates (choose from Meat, Mezze, Pork Pie or Cheese), various panini, soup and various "nibbles" including pork pie, scotch egg or a wedge of cheese among others. Things going on: live music from 8pm is on a Saturday, and a quiz on Tuesday. Note the impressive Hydes Crown Brewery plaque above the entrance. Discounts on Mondays for cask beers.

Historic Interest
