Probably the worst pub I have ever been in and I have been in thousands. There is no food offering at all and both staff and customers use the F word about twice in every sentance. The woman that served us was off hand and unhelpful. When asked what ales were available she just said that they were on the door. They were not.

The North Star is tucked away from Steventon's main drag. But it's well worth the effort of finding. I couldn't find the entrance at first, with only sign of a server to the garden. But the owner/landlord soon provided directions from the garden. The interior is a fabulously well-preserved country-style pub with low beams and multiple rooms. The only drawback was that it was a little dark. Ales are all dispensed by gravity and they had Loddon Ferryman's Gold & Hullabaloo, Loose Cannon Minion & Greene King Barmy Army on. The landlord certainly seems keen to make this a going concern. He was a friendly guy and I wish him the best of luck. Best pub of the day for me in Oxfordshire.

An outstanding find on the weekend of the 2013 Truck Festival, this is handily placed en route from the public transport options and indeed, we decided to escape the site periodically to quaff some most excellent pintery - Loddon's Ferryman's Gold, beautifully kept and served from a hatch included. The interior features some historic 'settles' and although no food is served beyond snacks and picked eggs, this is everything a village pub should be.

Certainly the beer aint shabby anymore (re: previous poster). Lots of people outside on the picnic tables @ 06:30 Saturday getting served through the window of the small room with 5 barrels, that also serves through a door into settle room and a hatch into a lounge at the back. 4 or 5 locals in the settle room which we settled in just to get the feel of the place.

Luddon Russet and Morland Original Bitter and Sharps Doom Bar were all great, served by a pleasant bar maid. Left to sample the other pubs in Steventon but came back to enjoy the better offering of beer and atmosphere.

On our return, were greeted by a local saying "You were here before weren't you? There's only the Morland and Red Ale left, we've been drinking too much, get in there".
Seems friendly enough to me. The big difference was that 4 or 5 that were in the bar earlier was now packed with at least 25 all either sat round in the settles or standing leaning over the settles looking over all chattering away with quite a bit of ribald banter, what a timeless scene.

The Red Ale and Morlands were great. Excellent timewarp of a pub with great beer and great friendly atmosphere, you can see why it is in the Camra Inventory of Historic Pubs and long may it stay so.

Having visited again to find the lovely couple have left for pastures new no food offering, poor selection of drinks and my husband descbribed the beer as "shabby at best" so all in all not the best visit
