I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Since September 2018 The Star Hotel has new management and a new menu and range of entertainment.

Music Sets The Mood
Extend your weekend by heading to Star Hotel on Sunday afternoon for some live music washed down with great drinks and food. Every Sunday Star Hotel offers $10 pints, 2 for 1 cocktails and $10 chef's pie and chips as well as the usual menu and cocktail specials.

Recently we were lucky enough to chance upon a Jake Folbigg gig. As the weather was quite wintry, the music was inside the hotel rather than in the adjacent laneway. We appreciated the fact that Jake matched the tone of the music to the audience playing covers of a lot of personal favourites such as INXS, Jack Johnson and Mumford & Sons.

Special pie & chips

The pie was a very tasty red wine beef and vegetable casserole with a puff pastry lid and great value for $10. It was a warming combination matched with a $8 glass of Margan Shiraz.

Dessert, dinner, hotel, pub grub, food
Rhubarb & apple crumble

The smooth music and relaxing atmosphere called for a longer stay then first planned. We decided to have coffee and indulge in a delicious rhubarb and apple crumble served with vanilla bean ice cream.

There is every chance that we will either become Sunday regulars when in Newcastle or at least Jake Folbigg groupies.
