The Star Hotel

Burntwood, Staffs:

A Ember Inn, so it’s a pub for people that don’t like pubs :-).

I’m being unkind. Ember Inns are OK, in their way. The food’s usually at least OK, they tend to have a few cask ales on, the interiora are a bit of a fake-traditional thing- and this was the case here. It’s an imposing building outside- late 19th century at a guess.

Ember Inns used to have a no children policy, but I they’ve sadly relented on that now, not that it was a problem for us on a weekday lunchtime.

Beer was fine, but maybe a bit cold for some real ale twats, fine for me.
