The Star Inn is still trading but it is now known as the Dinneywicks Inn. It was acquired by Wadworth, brewers of Devizes, Wiltshire, in 1991 and the name was changed then. The ‘new’ name refers to the name of a field at the back of the village. The owner of the field levied a toll because it straddled a highway. Another local story is that the nearby Dinneywicks Hill was a burial ground for horses in the English Civil War.

Wadworth has since sold the Dinneywicks and it now operates as a Free House.
