Star Hotel, Regent Road, Salford. (c) Neil Richardson .
The Star Hotel stood on the corner of West Brownbill Street and Regent Road and was first known as the Druids Call. Dating back to the late 1860s, it was a Groves and Whitnall house by the 1920s and the brewery gave it a new brick and tile frontage. The Star lasted until 1978 when it was adjudged to be unsafe after its neighbouring shops had been pulled down. The fate of the Greenall Whitley house was the same and the site of the old Star is today under the Regent Road-Albion Way roundabout .
