The Star Inn for Wetherspoon
The Star Inn in Honiton, Devon is steeped in history. In fact nearly 175 years. The pub has low ceilings, and a traditional vibe [although a little unloved when we got our hands on it!].
Keeping the traditional pub values and mindful of the buildings Grade Two listing, we wanted to reveal original cob walls to the columns, mix vintage and modern furniture, two feature fireplaces to create a welcoming village atmosphere.
A flagstone slate floor was installed throughout with large bespoke carpet rugs to zone areas.
Honiton has strong links to the lace making industry which is reflected both in the graphical approach and subtle interior details.
Another famous Honitonian is Ron’s Dream. Pigeon racing is important to the town’s community. This has inspired us to feature him in a couple of key ways, [with careful tongue in cheek humour].
