The Star and Garter in Andover opened on Monday (13th January 2014), unveiling the £1 million year-long refurbishment by new owners CityLodge.
Whilst the hotel was open all day, there were tours around the hotel from 5.00pm to 7.00pm with Mark from owners CityLodge and Ian Pamplin, the architect. By 6.30pm the 35 roomed hotel was full except for a single room with people already in the new bar and restaurant areas.

Over in the restaurant, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner which includes a choice of carvery – available Monday to Saturday at £5.99 and £8.99 on Sundays.
