The Star Inn

23 The Vineyards The Paragon Bath BA1 5NA

Set into a row of Georgian houses at the western end of George Street, the Star Inn is a great refuge from the city centre. Its no-fuss approach to hostelry – no music, no games machines – is refreshing, and its four small rich-mahogany bars tempt you to linger awhile over one of the real ales on tap, including the award-winning Bellringer, a hoppy, citrus number from owners Abbey Ales, Bath’s only brewery. Free bar snacks on Sundays.
