History

  • Did you know that until fairly recently, The Star Pub was four fifths in the London borough of Kingston and one fifth in Mole Valley? The rates had to be divided up. The pub had an Oxshott phone number and the postal address was Leatherhead.
  • The Star not only served as a public house in Victorian times. The adjoining “long room” was used as a school and church lectures were also held there until 1865, when St Mary’s C of E school was built in Leatherhead Road.  At “The Star” school, the fee was 1 d a week.
  • Further stories of Malden Rushett’s and Chessington’s past can be found in Mark Davison’s book, Chessington Remembered. Tel 01737 221215 for details or e–mail mark.davison1@virgin.net
  • In "The Detailed Return of Fully Licensed Houses and Beer Houses" for the county of Surrey, February 1892 , The Star at Malden is listed as being fully licenced and owned by R.W Ashby of Cobham. The Licensee was a John Castleman.
  • In the same document for the year 1904, we discover that it is listed as being licensed prior to 1869 and that the owner is still R.W Ashby of Cobham. The Licensee was now William Crook and apart from selling "intoxicants", The Star offered "tea and mineral waters". There was no sleeping accommodation available but stabling for one horse was offered and the pub possessed "1 urinal" but no W.C!
