user reviews of Star, Stone

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Last pub of the night in Stone was the Star. It's a Marston's pub next to the canal. There are lots of small rooms with beams and low ceilings that are quite atmospheric. It was quiet when we first arrived. But a party of about a dozen people arrived. They'd clearly been drinking for a while; a lively lot who were happy to engage in conversation. Pedigree & Hobgoblin were the ales.

We were caught out by a downpour while walking our dog in Stone, and were pleased to find that, while most of the outside tables here were drenched, there was a bench well-sheltered under an overhanging roof.

It turned out that this was pretty much the preserve of smokers during there temporary exiles from the pub interior: but they informed us that it was OK to take a dog into the lower bar - so we did.

It's a really old-fashioned space, with good beer and friendly locals - and several other dogs. Good to see it surviving quietly in this interesting spot.

First time I have been in the Star for a great many years.
Glad to see the lack of change to what is a very nice pub.
My meal was everything I expected and the Marstons was superb.

We visited this pub in May of 2011. There were 6 of us on a canal boat holiday. This is the first time I had visited this little drinker for many years,yet it was every bit as good as I remembered it. Although I have forgotten the ale I had ,it was tasty and well kept and served. The rest of our crew were similarly complimentary of their beers. Although I did not eat myself , most other crewmembers did and told me food was reasonably priced and good.
I had previously walked into Stone to get some shopping for the boat. I was amazed at the size of the place. I had always thought it to be an obscure little canalside village . How wrong can I have been!?
Plenty of other pubs ,restaurants,takeaways and shops. Stone [especially the Star] is well worth a look or even an overnight stop if you are canal cruising.

Looking a the charming exterior of this canalside pub I would have expected, in this day and age, to see the ripped out interior, replaced with a sterile, misguided concept of contemporary. Inside they have managed to preserve much of the core and charm of this pub, and it was all the better for it, the lower bar and snug being the most charming parts. I have heard bad reviews about the food and service at this pub but whilst the bar service was a little lacking, the beer was in fine condition. I couldn't comment on the food as I did not eat. More could be made of the gardens and exterior, which seem to have a look of post smoking ban utility than canalside charm but it is a lovelly place to watch narrowboats going through the lock whilst drinking a pint or two of Bank's Mild.
