About The Star Standon

The Star is a welcoming family run public house. It is situated on the picturesque Standon High Street opposite St. Marys Church. The original pub structure dates back to 1550 AD, with wooden beams running throughout the pub. Additional work and extensions were built around 1700 AD. It is only a short walk to the Standon Lordship, perfect for walking groups and cyclists alike.

The Bar

We are very proud to be part of the Cask Marque and Greene King Head Brewers Club, supplying well kept and cask conditioned ales. We will always have Greene ales on draught as well as bringing in constantly changing guest ales from brewers such as St. Austell, Timothy Taylors and local brewers Crouch Vale. Behind the bar we also have a great selection of spirits, including our ‘Bothy’ full of Scotch whiskies and our ‘Gin Palace’. Our wines, handpicked by ourselves, offer well known grape varieties, both old and new, as well as some different grape varieties that you may not of heard of, catering for all tastes and matches for food.

The Lounge Bar

The lounge bar has a traditional feel to it, with historical references to both the pub and Standon. Seating available both at the bar and at tables around the fireplace giving an option to have a chat and catch up or just enjoy a quiet drink.

Sports Bar

The bar has local sporting memorabilia throughout and reflects our Darts and Petanque teams, as well as the local Standon and Puckeridge Football Club. In this bar we also show football, rugby and other sports matches on Sky Sports HD and BT Sport, with three TV’s giving everyone a good view.


Outside you will find a large car park, pub garden and a heated veranda, backing onto the sports bar. The huge and very well maintained pub garden includes many benches for friends and families to sit at and have something to eat and drink, surrounded by natural flower beds and some overhanging trees for shade. Further down the garden you will find a petanque pitch which customers can play on and a large field containing a child’s climbing frame, perfect for families with children, allowing them to run around and play safely, away from the main pub and car park.
