I can confirm that Star Gold doesn’t generally provide access to F class lounges. For LH, the Senator lounges are accessible, but the F class lounge is a totally different experience. At FRA for example, it is even in its own building. UA has an “International First Class lounge, which is only accessible to F class passengers, similarly SQ. So OW may have the edge here, although at T5 in LHR, the “First” lounge doesn’t really offer much more than the business lounge upstairs. In many ways I prefer the business lounge in the B concourse – it’s quieter and generally more convenient when it comes to long haul flights.
