"The Star, near the church, Lingfield. Situated ¼ mile from the Greyhound and about 1 mile from the Hare & Hounds. This inn and 3 cottages and the former Star Inn date from the 16th-18th centuries. The inn derives its name from the arms of the Cobhams, the great Lords of Sterborough Castle who lie in the church. In 1807 an auction catalogue gives the inn as a "substantial messuage, with a cottage adjoining, barns, stables, gardens, and yard, and arable land adjoining New Place Lane containing about 4 acres, held for an unexpired term of 16 years from Michaelmas 1805 (old style), at rent of £34 pa on lease to Mr Chapman at the rent of £25. In 1859 the inn was run by Charles Head who was also the Parish Clerk. In 1892 the property was owned by E & H Kelsey of Tunbridge Wells and run by Arthur James Wood.
