A small town centre pub, the Seven Stars has been in the hands of the same family for seven generations since 1868. For 50 of these years, until his death in 2012, the licensee was Barrington Bennetts who was also an ordained Anglican clergyman. At the front, the public bar has various late Victorian fittings, plus metal stillages introduced in the late 1940s. There was formerly a partitioned-off oyster bar here and its rare, white marble counter-top is still in place. The walls and ceiling are covered with matchboard panelling. The gas lights at either end of the bar are still in working order (though not now used). A passage, with an off-sales hatch, leads to the rear smoke room which has a hatch/ doorway to the back of the bar. In the ceiling is a coffin hatch for raising and lowering bulky items to the upper floor. The Victorian building was extended to the right in 1912 with an off-sales shop (now defunct).
