A pub in St Erth has been given a new lease of life after being taken over by new tenants.
The Star Inn has been redecorated, is set to start a new menu and will again let rooms which fell into disuse in recent years.
Lisa Carter and her husband Michael took the plunge and moved from Nottingham with their two children to run the venture in St Erth.
It’s very much a family affair, said Mrs Carter, with daughter Eloise working front of house and son Samuel taking on the chef’s role in the kitchen.
Since opening on February 8, Mrs Carter said they have had a lot of support in the community.
“We had never heard of St Erth, but it’s just beautiful and we fell in love with it when we came.
"The pub is for the village, we are just here to run it. We want to keep the village atmosphere and we will be catering for local people.”
Mrs Carter said years of experience working in the pub industry will come in useful for the first-time tenants.
She said: “It’s really exciting. It’s a lot of hard work but we knew that.”
The Carters intend to hold regular band and quiz nights as well as catering for functions.
Since the rooms have been advertised to let again Mrs Carter said there has already been a lot of interest.
Initial changes to the menu include creating a more diverse children’s food offer and introducing some new lighter bites.
