OUR LOVELY GARDEN
The Star Inn is sited very near to the parish church of All Saints in the centre of the village. It is an amalgam of many builds, the core is what remains of a two-bay medieval hall house dating from the mid to second half of the 15th century. The hall would have contained a central hearth, open to the rafters, where the smoke escaped through the roofing material or end gable's. The multi-flued chimney stack was added a century or so later. In the late 18th century a western addition and the fine function room to the north were built, followed not long after, c. 1800, by the eastern bay with the cellar. The present Star Inn was built in 1348 to serve the masons working on the church and this was also the year of the terrible Black Death.
