Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Church Street, Bentworth, Alton, GU34 5RB
The Star Inn is set in the heart of leafy Hampshire, just a few miles from Alton in the picturesque village of Bentworth. This gastro pub is housed in an early 19th-century building where low wood beamed ceilings and original fireplaces add to the warm welcome received from friendly and helpful staff. A range of snacks and mains incorporate both traditional country fare and modern continental cuisine. Those looking for a hearty meal can opt for English classics like steak and kidney pie, while dishes such as Cajun chicken fillets and confit of duck add a European twist. Vegetarians will feel at home with a fine selection of mains, such as sumptuous sweet potato rosti tart served with onion chilli relish. All mains are served with fresh vegetables and potatoes or salad. The dessert menu is full of treasures that leave those with a sweet tooth in heaven: even the most decisive eater will have trouble choosing between dishes like sticky toffee pudding, and the Baileys and double chocolate cheesecake. The Star Inn presents a fine range of wines, lagers, spirits and cask ales. Expect wireless internet and access for disabled patrons, too.
