The Seven Stars, a characterful Devon pub nestled in the vibrant town of Kingsbridge, has reopened following a stunning £161K investment by independent pub company Punch Pubs & Co with experienced Management Partner Neil Griffiths taking the helm.

The investment has breathed new life into the Seven Stars, creating an inviting place for both locals and visitors to delight in its rustic, cosy atmosphere. Now featuring plush upholstered furnishings, eclectic feature wallpapers, stunning wood finishes and quirky artwork, it has become the community’s living room and a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of Kingsbridge.

Outside, the Seven Stars’ newly revamped garden terrace is the perfect backdrop to enjoy an authentic pub experience. With reclaimed timber furniture and a range of seating, guests can immerse themselves in this area of outstanding natural beauty.

The Seven Stars offers quintessentially British food done well. From hand-raised steak & ale pie to slow-roast lamb shank, the charming menu is sure to excite all the family. Locally sourced seafood specials are the order of the day, with a daily range cooked from scratch, honestly sourced, and beautifully presented.

Guests can order from an expertly selected drinks range, featuring favourites to cover every occasion. From carefully curated cocktails to a short and sharp range of liveners and pick me ups that will quench all thirsts. The real showstopper is a quality pint of lager from local Bays brewery that gives visitors to the area a true taste of Devon.

Management Partner Neil Griffiths has reopened the pub with the help of his wife Suerene, their children and family who have recently relocated from South Africa to reopen the Seven Stars. Neil says, “We’re so excited to be back in Kingsbridge, reopening this iconic pub that looks better than ever.

“The Seven Stars is a huge part of this fantastic town and is a true Devon establishment. This transformation has really done it justice and we are thrilled to be unveiling its new look to locals and to be welcoming visitors to the area back to the pub once again.”

Punch’s operations director Robin Belither says, “We are delighted with the result of our investment at the Seven Stars. It is a brilliantly located pub in idyllic Kingsbridge that has been bought back to life both internally and externally. With our new partner Neil and his family, we are confident that this pub will provide the perfect backdrop for locals and tourists alike”.
