The Seven Stars Public House (gbmapping|ST591727) is an historic public house situated on Thomas Lane, Bristol, England.

One of the earliest references to the pub is in the Bristol Record Office. It mentions Sir John Hawkins, who, whilst buying what was to become the Georges Brewery, acquired the lease in 1694 from the Saunders family brewing dynasty “…a half tenement, the sign of the Seven Stars, St Thomas Lane”.

It is now noted for its association with Thomas Clarkson, the abolitionist who visited in 1787 and used the pub as a base for his researches into Bristol's "Honourable Trade" of slavery.

It was built in the 17th century and is a grade II listed building. [cite web | title=The Seven Stars Public House Public house | work=Images of England | url=http://www.imagesofengland.org.uk/search/details.aspx?pid=2&id=380705 | accessdate=2007-05-09]
