The Star Inn, known as "The Star", was built during the reign of Edward IV in the year 1476. When first built, the house was a thatched farm dwelling. Following the custom of the time, it was given this religious name being the closest inn to St Mary's Church, within the precincts of the parish. In more recent times the famous playwright Noel Coward lived next door to The Star and wrote his first successful play there. The Star has seen and undergone many changes since it was first built, but its historic character remains unchanged. Today the pub is a very successful inn offering good food and accommodation.
