The Star Inn is definitely one of Bath’s finest boozers. It is a cosy, traditional multi-room public house designed for drinking. The interior must be the best in town. They offer a small selection of cask beer (including Bass on gravity dispense) and some decent more “contemporary” bottles. Perhaps not the most exciting or edgy selection of beer out there, but I always find something to drink. Not a pub for seeking out new beers per se, but a must-visit pub for its character and charm.

Loved this place. Traditional pub, nice atmosphere, wooden interior, working fireplaces. Was quiet at first, but as the night went on it became quite lively. Good cask selection, good service, decent prices. For me it’s a must when in Bath. Would like to visit it again.

Beautiful old pub a short trot out of town, lots of nooks and crannies, very quiet though. Go for the history of it and to have a nose around.
Apr ’14 The pub was pretty full on a Saturday afternoon and the beer range had improved a little with slightly more choice. I’m glad I made the effort to re visit.

Lovely pub. Multiple WORKING fireplaces, lots of dynamic seating, simple but decent beer range, good prices, efficient staff. They still have the Bass on gravity, although I opted for one of the other real ales. I had a great time in this pub; it was one of the highlights of Bath for me.

The best cask ale bar in Bath, a short walk from the tourist area, this solid looking pub is a no nonsense drinking house. If you want soft arm chairs and posh tables and carpet up to your knees, this is the wrong place. If you want a pint sat on a wooden bench surrounded by history and other people, this is the place for you! Abbey Ales are wonderful examples of the best England can offer in traditional beers, this is more or less their Brewery Tap. Their website explains everything better than I can, but ’The small room’ is the best bar area in my opinion, but you go and visit, make up your own mind.

Very nice atmosphere, this place is sweet. The beer list isn’t the best in town, but the gravity pour Bass was something nice. Well worth a visit for the interior.

Beautiful old-fashioned pub a bit off the tourist-trails; cozy & quiet; mainly the local Abbey Ales are served plus a - IMHO - boring Bass from the gravity cask. Nice place for a nice evening!

Probably the most characterful interior in all of Bath, which is saying a lot. A must-visit if you are into that sort of thing. Feels like a sacred spot. Quiet, dark, cozy, small. Feel like time stands still here, making a return to the outside world seem disorienting. Bass ale on gravity cask--very good. I think they are an Abbey Ale pub.
