    Welcome to The White Star Tavern, a classically vibrant and wholesome boutique Inn at the heart of the city. We are surrounded by art and culture, maritime heritage and a cosmopolitan atmosphere right on our door step. Central to an animated and energetic scene at the weekend, this is a fantastic location for a city getaway, a chance to see the city s sights and sounds at its finest, and of course the occasional bin man on a fresh weekday morning! We have converted an old historic building, which dates back to 1800 s as a small hotel to create an urban, contemporary, boutique inn whilst maintaining its historic quirks and character. We are a lively, vibrant yet personal city centre inn that has been awarded 5AA stars for our bedroom amenities, friendly service and hospitality. Our bespoke en-suite rooms are designed to embellish all the familiar comforts. Soft Egyptian linen, stunning bathrooms with oversized showers, Wi-Fi and 19 Freeview flat screen TV s - not forgetting the important touches like mini bars stocked with your favourite products and personal safes big enough for your laptop, come as standard. Recently awarded 2 Rosettes for food, we pride ourselves on producing locally sourced food which is served at a modest price. A cracking wine list, award winning ales, and mastered cocktails gives you plenty to choose from. Whatever the occasion, we work hard to make The White Star Tavern your venue of choice.
