Honiton welcomes Wetherspoon’s Star Inn.

One of Honiton’s historic pubs has re-opened its doors following a £1.66 million revamp by J D Wetherspoon.

The new-look Star Inn was opened by Olympian Jo Pavey and the deputy mayor of Honiton, Councillor Peter Halse, last week.

It has created 50 new jobs in the town.

Photos, local history and artwork feature in the pub’s new design, which also incorporates its long-standing history with pigeon racing.

Another of the town’s historic pubs - The Three Tuns - has also opened its doors once again for business.
