user reviews of the Seven Stars, Helston

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

the seven stars has changed hands about 3 or 4 weeks ago, we went in with friends at about 7.30 one tue evening to be told that there were no specials on the board, and that they only had one burger in the fridge.
We had to settle for fish and chips at 6.99 that were not very exciting, would have done better at the chippie round the corner
Not a very impressive start..
PS they had also run out of draught beer.

Formerly known as the Fitzsimmons Arms (after Bob Fitzsimmons, Helstonís famous 19th century boxing champion) the pub has undergone a rather unsympathetic refurbishment and name change since I was last in Helston which was many years ago. The interior consists of 2 long narrow buildings that have been knocked through but large remnants of retaining walls and pillars make each side of the pub distinct. There are few worthy features that catch the attention, a fireplace and stove at one end and a few remaning snippets and pictures that remain from the benefactor of the pubís previous name. To the right of the entrance is a pool area with DJ booth so itís not hard to see what the target customer base is.

The bar area is very bland and nondescript with a bank of fruit machines to the rear and the customary plasma TV. The side away from the bar has little in the way of seating and is geared more for stand up groups and there is also a fairly attractive patio to the rear but generally there is little attempt to utilize much of the buildings intrinsic character, or what is left of it.

On the positive side, there are 3 ales (Doom bar, Speckled Hen and Theakstons Best) at below average prices and of decent quality (Mrs B also had a very good inexpensive coffee for what itís worth). One word of warming if you decide to stay for a few, the floors are a bit uneven in places so watch your step! The Seven Stars will have an appeal to a certain age group but with the Blue Anchor down the road, it is obvious where the discerning pub goer will be heading.
