WINTER AT THE STAR & GARTER

Baby, it’s cold outside! No matter, the pub is the best place to hide from short days and long nights, with good friends, good cheer and good food. Our fresh native fish, a magnificent pork chop from Jimmy Butler, a warming vegetable curry, or a sweet Cherry Bakewell (in tart or cocktail form) will all make winter recede for a while. Find a comfortable spot by the fire or near the bar and let us bring you the good stuff.

SUNDAY BEST AT THE STAR & GARTER

We are serious about Sunday roasts, which is why you’ll find at least three choices on our menu every week. Settle in for top-quality beef from Aubrey Allen, Jimmy Butler’s free-range pork, or our delicious vegetarian wellington with all the glorious trimmings. It’s an age-old favourite for a reason. Long may it reign.
