The Star Inn...

Guildford’s longest-running live music venue, The Star Inn brings together beautiful beer and brilliant bands for one of the best pub experiences in town.

Located just off the High Street, the 16th century pub has been entertaining the locals for more than 400 years - showcasing some excellent acts including The Stranglers, who performed their first ever gig here.

The Star’s enduring appeal is about more than just the music though. 

With a real fire, an intimate courtyard garden and three floors full of snug and cosy corners, this is one of the best pubs in Guildford to simply relax, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy fine traditional food and drink.

There’s a good selection of wines by the glass, traditional Kentish cask ales and a range of distinctive lagers, all complementing an extensive menu of honest, unpretentious food.

Close to the vibrant shopping district, the river and Guildford Castle, The Star is the perfect place to unwind whatever the reason for your trip into town. We look forward to welcoming you soon…
