About The Star Inn Sparsholt

Looking for a casual, countryside venue for your wedding? The Star Inn near Wantage in Oxfordshire is a lovely, boutique hotel, pub and venue that's proud to offer a bespoke experience for couples both in the area and from further afield. 

The Star Inn benefits from a charming backdrop, set in the idyllic village of Sparsholt. Here it has stood since 1720, but as the team say, it's a relative newcomer in a village whose church dates back to the 14th century. Nevertheless, you'll notice its beautiful Georgian architecture throughout with exposed wooden beams and large windows which create an airy feel.

While there's a sense of history here, the team have done an incredible job at modernising the facilities and decor with chic, sophisticated interiors, especially in the private dining room which is where wedding breakfasts are held. Here, neutral-toned walls, mid century-style seating and simple styling create a timeless look that's perfect for low-key gatherings focused on good food, wine and company. The space has capacity for up to 30 people and can be reconfigured however you like, with plenty of opportunities for decorations and floral installations, too. 

Catering is provided in house but can be customised to suit your wants and needs. The team take a seasonal and local approach when it comes to creating dishes, and for a flavour of what to expect you can check out the sample daily menu online. We particularly like the sound of the braised lamb shanks with flageolet and fennel cassoulet, triple cooked parsnips and mint gremolata, as well as the corn-fed chicken breast with homemade black pudding and curry sauce from the chargrill. 

The Star Inn can also cater to your accomodation needs, boasting a selection of boutique rooms in a converted barn just next to the pub. There's a selection of double and twin rooms available, each decorated individually.
