user reviews of Ye Olde Starre Inn, Christchurch

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Starre has the best 49er I have found anywhere, to be honest it has become quite legendary on the strength of it! It has recently grown in popularity on the quality of it's beer amongst the local students as well who seem to think they have 'discovered' the place!! LOL!!

The food (carvery) on a Sunday is the best in the area and is really well patronised by the locals and holiday makers alike. If you can get the landlady to cook something Chinese then you are really in for a treat!!

There are currently two live music nights a month - the second Tuesday of the month which is a well organised 'Folk and Roots' night, which seems to cover all forms of acoustic music from traditional folk and blues to contemporary singer/songwriter and the third Tuesday which is an open mic night.

This is a great pub and a real 'find' if you are passing by.

Visited this pub last wee late afternoon, only person in there. Barmaid was friendly but was polishing and cleaning windows. Sharps Doombar and Ringwood 49er were on offer. My mate had the Doombar and said it was good, however my 49er could have been better. I found the Pub very dark and in need of some TLC (a good tidy up behind the bar). Eating area looked ok. sited right on the main road into Christchurch so should be attracting more trade. Some work to be done, however i understand that the pub has only recently reopened after being closed for some time, so would return next time i am in Christchurch to give it a second chance

I have only been to this pub at lunchtime but have to say that the food is delicious. It is good home cooking at its best and the Sunday Carvery fantastic value at 6.95. Meat very tender and plenty of it, great choice of vegetables.

I don't use this pub at night time but I have been in several times for meals and I would most certainly return again.

The food is gorgeous, well presented and in expensive. I particularly like the carvery for 6.95 on Sundays. The meat just melts and there are several choices of vegetables.

And they make PROPER gravy!

Another 'private' pub, the choice of Ringwood best and 49er, like all the pubs in the area does not make this a good place for ale. try the Old George.

Would you believe there used to be coaches from has far away as southampton to come here to sample the atmosphere, the bands, the DJ's etc, now its just a soulless hole, after many make overs and the welcoming of the chavs you'd be well advised to give this place a wide berth. Dear Sue, please buy back this place, its your duty!

This pub as come under the new management of a very experienced couple. Resulting in: Good food and beer, no unruly behaviour, as before whilst still being favourable to watchers of all football.

This must be the most premier location in Christchurch that has replaced the local youth club.

Forget the grandiose olde worlde spelling. There's nothing old or distinguished about this place. Has actually improved in recent times to merely average. Beer is looked after pretty well and virtually all footie is shown. They even had the now defunct ITV Digital when they used to show Champions League matches where not many pubs in this area did so extra marks for that.
