Star Inn119 Market Jew Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Extensively refurbished and reopened in summer 2019, this is the largest pub in town, despite its narrow frontage. Open-plan and split over four different levels, the upper two nearest the street are essentially the drinking area, with planked floors, beamed ceilings, plentiful seating at wooden tables and chairs, and the single bar surmounted by 5 handpumps. The two lower levels are carpeted and form the dining area with at-table service and similar mainly wooden furniture, although there are a pair of u-shaped sofas. Dark wood dominates the whole and largely determines the ambience, even part-cladding the walls; photos of old Penzance form part of the wall décor.
