The Star (2) - sign, 36 West Street, Dorking
The pub has more than one sign. This one is in West Street and indicates that it is a Greene King house. The brewers Greene King are based at Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk, where they have a brewery. Their pubs division has around 1,600 pubs at present, and has extended well beyond their East Anglian base, particularly as they have taken over many pubs from other now defunct breweries.

In days when few people could read and write, signs with easily recognised objects such as the Star were popular.
