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 set atop wooden casks; 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. Meals are served 12-8 daily, 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: Mon is open-mic night; Wed evening has a quiz; live music from 8pm is on a Thu. There is 50p off a pint of cask all day Monday, plus a loyalty card offer - buy seven pints, get one free (valid only on Hydes-brewed beers and only on pints). Note the impressive Hydes Crown Brewery plaque above the entrance. History: originally the Old Star Inn, this was shortened to Star in early 2000s; in Feb 2017 it was refurbished and re-opened as the James Watts (a 'Master of Craft' house), he being Mayor of Manchester 1855-57, High Sheriff of Lancashire, and owner of nearby Abney Hall.
