Welcome to the
Believed to have been built in the 15th century, The Star in Chalton is a handsome stone-built pub, which lies close to the spectacular timbered Gostelow House, a former farmhouse dating back over 400 years. Chalton itself is a village of unspoilt beauty, dotted with handsome timber homes, the traditional stone village stores, and winding lanes overlooking lushly green farmland. The attractive Chalton Village Hall sits at the heart of this attractive village, and just to the north, along the Luton Road from The Star pub is Toddington, a quiet town replete with white stone homes, unique local shops, and the tranquil fields which surround the winding , tree-lined Long Lane route. A handsome, historic pub tucked into attractive Bedfordshire countryside, close to the stunning Chilterns AONB, The Star is a perfect location for enjoying delicious pub food. The scenic, historic setting makes the experience of sitting down for a relaxed Sunday lunch and a bottle of fine wine even more pleasant. Believed to date in part from the 15th century, The Star pub is named in reference to the Star of Bethlehem, and its low beamed ceilings help retain the sense of medieval history inside the building. The site of the pub goes back a thousand years further, being first occupied during the Roman era, around 410 AD. The pub was extremely popular with strawplaiters, during the occupation’s 17th century peak, with the husbands, carrying heavy bundles of straw, coming into the pub for a refreshing jar of ale along their way. Local farmers, traveling to market, were also frequent customers, and this popular tavern has an unspoilt, relaxed character as does the village of Chalton as a whole. The village of Chalton has a population of just 450, but a number of handsome and listed buildings which bely the size of this beautiful village.
