For over 300 years The Star Inn has been at the heart of the village of Sparsholt an idyllic village nestling at the foot of the ancient Ridgeway path with its world famous White Horse and its miles of unspoilt trails.
If you are visiting family and friends travelling on business or simply making the most of the attractions offered by this beautiful part of the world whether for a quiet evening drink or celebrating a special occasion The Star is the perfect place. Housed in a converted barn a stones throw away from the main pub the newly refurbished Star Barn offers 8 en-suite bedrooms offering twin double and family accommodation. Combining contemporary with rustic style the emphasis is on comfort with each room furnished with the highest quality beds to ensure an excellent nights sleep.
The best quality produce locally sourced and fabulously cooked. This drives everything we do. Innovative menus are created weekly supplemented by an ever changing specials board.
So whether eating a-la-carte or at the bar we believe that our unique blend of modern and traditional cuisine will appeal to the most discerning appetite. At the heart of The Star is our traditional and relaxed pub bar with a great range of real ales quality lagers and a carefully selected wine list. Wantage in Oxfordshire is a lovely small market town in the Vale of White Horse and has a good range of shops and services including plenty of places to eat and drink.
Links with the past are very strong too and Wantage is a great place to visit to enjoy this historic part of England. The town's buildings are mostly 17th and 18th century with narrow cobbled streets and passages.
