Star

Was renamed the ‘Hop Pickers’ in ?.
Closed in 2003?

Planning application 03/P1197 was registered in June 2003 for ‘Redevelopment of site involving demolition of existing public house and erection of a 3 storey building comprising 12 x 2 bed self contained flats with car parking in the basement. ‘ So the pub closed before the redevelopment. The flats themselves were all sold for £250,000 each in July 2005. (12 flats multiplied by a 1/4 million pounds each = £3 million pounds).
