We recently held a birthday party with 17 people for my daughter at the North Star. The staff were welcoming and our tables arranged as we needed them. A good start...! We had pre-ordered our food, which made things easier. The staff were all helpful and when the food started arriving, every meal was hot, all served at the same... More

We generally eat here about once a month as we can walk here. The menu is varied and there are regular specials and theme week menus. Food is good, service is always good and the staff are friendly.

My wife and I have recently taken to visiting the North Star every two or three weeks in the evening. There is something very pleasant about going there; we always find the atmosphere quite relaxed and the surroundings relatively spacious while still being cosy. The service is good and very friendly. The regular menu is not extensive or out of... More

Following a disastrous last visit we thought we would give McMullen a second chance, we were not disappointed. As a reward to my son for picking us up from Stanstead on Sunday evening we took him and our two grandchildren for dinner there. Bearing in mind we had just spend a month in sunny Cyprus and experienced good quality fresh... More

We've just moved around the corner from the North Star, so I guess it's our local. We've eaten there three times now, two with our teenagers and once as a couple. Each time the food has been good, with decent but manageable portions, and at a reasonable price. When we went on the Saturday, we had a free bottle of... More

We used to eat at this pub quite regularly but since the change of management a couple of years ago, it has been getting worse and worse. We visited the North Star recently as a group of six, and all were disappointed with the quality of the food. The portions were small, the vegetables ranged between hardly cooked at all,... More
