Came with my wife for a Wedding Anniversary dinner. Was our first visit, but we really enjoyed the food and ambience. Recommended - will hopefully return in the future.

Service was awesome. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. Food however was just okay, both starter and main, but couldn’t complain for the price we paid. Food didn’t have much flavour and my halloumi was burnt.

It was busy in the restaurant but we were made to feel very special. The kitchen substituted a food item for me without fuss to avoid my allergy. The meals were well presented and of a very high standard. Service was excellent and pricing was good.

A lovely postcard worthy village pub nestled in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire with its period features throughout the village and pub itself making for a charming destination for all occasions.

The staff were very attentive and friendly.

The food was very warming and comforting, we had the goats cheese with beetroot to start and I had the signature dish The Stars Burger for main. My fiancée now wife (pre wedding meal out) had the halloumi burger and said it was delicious and I quote “the perfect level of squeaky for halloumi” make of that as you will :D

Overall this is a firm favourite of ours and cannot recommend the place highly enough.

There is also ample parking and a delightful pub garden.

This was one of the first meals I have had in a restaurant indoors since restrictions were removed. I may have therefore been more excited than usual, but my friend and I had a wonderful experience. Starting with the food, which was delicious. I had the Gazpacho soup and the salmon tagliatelle followed by the cheese board. All were well cooked and more importantly the portion size was just right. With other meals, I have been known to have a sandwich when I return home but that was certainly not the case today. The service was brilliant. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. From a COVID-19 point of view all was carefully distanced in case anyone is worried. We originally chose here primarily because they are open on Monday lunchtimes, but from now on this will be my restaurant of choice for all the right reasons

We did have to wait 1hr and 15 mins for our main course. It was very busy but there was not enough serving staff to cover the amount of customers. It was initially very windy where we were seated and arranged for an alternative table. The staff were very apologetic and extremely courteous and polite. The food was excellent as was the marquee where we were seated. This was exceptional as the restaurant is top of my favourites list.

Excellent food and service. Stef very friendly as always. They have managed outdoor dining extremely well. Plenty of gazebos - some with heaters. Blankets are available.
Tables are from inside so you feel you are eating at a proper restaurant
Highly recommend

This was my first visit back to The Seven Stars and I was very excited. The staff were friendly and efficient and the organisation with respect to COVID was very good. Unfortunately the food was a big disappointment, my friend’s risotto was under cooked and my soup tasted solely of mustard. The portions were not generous. I really hope that this was a ‘one off’ as I like the pub and have had several good celebratory meals here in the past. We did mention our displeasure to the waitress but there was scant reaction.

Hats off to Steph and her merry band to getting it just right as ever. Well spaced tables and observing of SD rules and the most beautiful food. If it is on the menu, you must try the haddock with rosti and the most perfectly poached egg I have ever had. I can't recommend this pub highly enough, fabulous restaurant food in a charming, warm and friendly environment.
Take away available during lockdown too... I will be booking my pick up for a Sunday roast well in advance for next week!

Thanks to Steph and the team for great food and great service in homely surroundings. My favourite local restaurant. What a pity lockdown is going to prevent us going back for a while, though I'm sure a Seven Stars takeaway will taste just as good.
