The Star hotel ceased operations in 2020.
Who says you can only go out on weekends?
This iconic Star Hotel has recently changed hands and the new management team are making their mark. They have introduced a new menu and live music.
On Wednesday evenings, there is a wine & dine special where for $55 two people can have a bottle of wine, an entree and a main meal. The wines are an Australian sparkling, Chardonnay or a Shiraz - if you want to drink something else, you can pay the difference.
The pork belly was a generous serve and the pickled pear salad, kale and vanilla carrot purée were tasty alternatives to the usual apple sauce and roast vegetables. The other selections for mains were a crumbed chicken schnitzel and for vegetarians a pumpkin salad.
