Haven't been in here for a couple of years as I thought the beer was a bit expensive and the food was ok but not good enough to make me want to eat there. However we went in for our tea last night and I was pleasantly surprised by the bar prices. I had a rare rump steak which came with real chips, a good mix of veg, mushroom and tomato. I've got to say every mouthful was a delight. The steak was so tasty. My wife had Hunters Chicken which she really enjoyed and to top it off she ordered Chocolate Brownie Sundae which came in a kind of glass jar with a handle and was easily enough for two. It was packed with ice creams and chocolate and sweet "things".
Too sweet for me but my wife thoroughly enjoyed it.
Well, after not being here for a few years I'm certainly looking forward to my next visit.

The North Star in High Crompton is a fabulous place for food and drink.

There is a good choice of food available and is always served by lovely friendly staff and the pub has a great homely atmosphere.

Had seafood penne, it had four mussels on , two of which had empty shells, and two prawns in. There was some other mushed up fish in. This was £13. Refused to pay, poor value, rude staff, had run out of lots of things and they were so slow. Don’t bother
