The Star Inn at the top of Market Jew St Penzance has re-opened after a three quarters of a million pound re-fit. A building that was an eyesore in the heart of the Town is now an asset. Dick Cliffe, Chairman of Penzance Chamber, felt obligued to check it out.
A lot of thought has gone into the internal design of this large Inn because it spreads over various levels and provides intimacy for groups of various sizes. Despite the smell of newness, the bar area contains many orignal feature - some of the beams are very obviously orignal. The bar has a good range of beers and there are several options for eating with part of the floor area separated off for more formal dining with table servic.
The menu looks interesting and good value. I was reassured by staff that all food is prepared on the premises. You can view light bites, grill, sweets and stove/oven sections of the menu by clicking the links. The credit card machine has not yet been installed so go prepared to pay cash if checking the place out in the next few days.
I was really pleased to see this old Inn thoroughly refurbished and performing the role it has performed for more than one hundred years.
