Square Meal Review of The Star Inn, Lidgate ?

A cosy, traditional inn with a twist, the Star combines the snug, low-beamed roof and sizzling log fires of its 400 year-old heritage with a Spanish-led blackboard menu. Upon entering, expect to be hit with a tempting aroma of garlic, before being greeted by the enthusiastically table-hopping proprietor Maria Theresa Axon. Generously proportioned and vividly flavoured, dishes are authentically prepared – expect the likes of whole baby squid with garlic and chilli, hearty bean and chorizo stew; and Catalan spinach with pinenuts and raisins. Fish soup, too, is a big draw, while more ambitious mains range from delicate cod with garlic mousseline to robust partridge – all served with crispy, moreish patatas bravas. The atmosphere is infectiously friendly, Greene King IPA and local Abbott ale are available on tap, and the wine list boosts plenty of reasonably priced Riojas. The £10.20 two-course set lunch is a steal.
