A small, early Victorian pub with three rooms that was last refurbished in the 1960s. The tiny bar has an old bench with a heating pipe underneath but the bar fittings date from the 1960s when the counter was moved. The lounge retains original bench seating, which sweeps around the bay windows, and bell-pushes. Old etched glass remains in doors and in a baffle in the lounge. The fittings in the pool room at the rear also date from the 1960s when the room was brought into use. The lobby between the lounge the pool room has old black and white tiled floor and inter-war dado tiled walls. The Star was sold at auction by Robinsons in 2009 and is now a cooperatively-owned community pub.
