The perfect place for a romantic countryside culinary escape...

Set in the middle of the charming hamlet of Sparsholt, The Star is a handsome 18th century building with a glorious garden next to a babbling brook. There’s also a separate barn which is home to eight lovely bedrooms.

The Star has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment of the bar and restaurant, carried out by the team behind Newbury’s Michelin starred restaurant The Woodspeen.

The best produce, locally sourced and carefully cooked underpins everything we do...
