- In an age when most pubs are open and plain, with walls and doors removed and exteriors tarted up, The Star has weathered the improvement storm inside and out. The labyrinth of connecting wood-lined rooms around the bar, where the dim light is filtered through leaded panels beneath a traditionally smoke-stained ceiling, is still in place, as is the tattoo parlour next door. Thankfully the "have a nice day, missing you already" style has not penetrated here yet but it can only be a matter of time. Hurry on down to this authentic rarity for a pint or two, and if you're really hungry they'll probably rustle up a packet of crisps too.
