Visited 5/4/2022. First time for some years. Hadn’t changed a bit. Still a super heritage pub. 5 ales on offer including the mainstays of Bass and Abbey Ales Bath Bellringer. Do like this pub though don’t expect a dozen ticks here, just plenty of character and characters.

Fantastic pub - my favourite in Bath. The Abbey Bellringer gets delivered directly from the brewery round the corner and is superb. A rare example of what a great pub should be: Great beer, good company, papers, real fire, tradition. A place I could spend my last days.

Multi-roomed CAMRA Heritage Pub. It's an institution and rightly so. On the day I was there, they were holding a 12-hour pub quiz for charity, so room was scarce. Unfortunately the beer selection isn't up to all that much. They have a few Westcountry beers on cask, but anything forward-looking seems to have been given a miss (except for some bottles of Punk, which seem to be everywhere these days). My verdict: it's a place for a quick half or a day-long session but nothing in between!

A charming, well-kept,old pub from 1760 in upper part of town. Promotes a cozy intimately atmosphere spread over a few smaller room. Dark wooden interiors and stained glass windows. Six cask ales available. Friendly service. Music free. We had a really relaxing an enjoying time here. (Visited with Finn 03.05.2017).

Superb heritage bar, full of character(s). Beer range isn’t exciting, but you do get the option of at least one beer from Abbey Ales. Visit for the ambiance, superb place.

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.
