My final stop of the day was the Star Inn, the only Penkridge pub in the current Good Beer Guide. But, of the 3 I tried, I have to say that this was easily the worst. The outdoor drinking area was packed with people enjoying the Saturday afternoon sunshine. Inside was busy too and there was an orderly queue for the bar, which I joined, only to find a local walking to the side of me and getting served straight away. It's always disappointing when bar staff (I'm fairly sure it was the landlord) serve people out of order. If unsure, just ask! The ale range was all from Marston's - Thwaite's Wainwright & Lancaster Bomber, Banks's Amber Ale, Jenning's Cocker Hoop & Brakspear Jericho Pale Ale. Poor service and below average ale selection makes this a pretty ordinary pub.

As of end December 2013 we can support the three previous reports: well worth a side trip. Little to add, even to the 2009 report. Very good. Welcoming and friendly. Good selection of bar snacks at sensible prices. Good service.
Obviously a popular place for the regulars/locals - good Saturday afternoon atmosphere.

Good pints of Ringwood 49er last night and nice to see a busy but friendly pub on a Saturday night. By far the best pub in the area and worth a small diversion off the main road or M6 to find it.

Good selection of ales and bar staff provide a good quality service. Recommended. - 4 Jul 2010 12:27
A lovely looking brick and timber building in the market place, with a beer patio. The inside, while much altered, retains a traditional feel, with a nice fire place and very clean seating and tables. It is open plan around the bar, with a 'quiet' tv (watching England U21s), unobtrusive music and dart board. I took a liking to this place from the start.

The clientele were mixed and decent people from what i could tell, the service was friendly and even when a mix up in a drinks order occurred, it was sorted with a smile.

The Beer range consisted of usual stuff, with Banks's MILd and bitter on cask, the MILD being very nice. As a Banks's pub, it had on Brakspear Hooray Henry and Jennings Cocker Hoop, which are basic at the moment and the only little let down

Will be back
