this is our local pub and we eat here with the family once or twice month. The staff and management are very friendly, there is always good service. The menu is varied with a good choice of chef's recommendations.

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.

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

Stopped here for an impromptu dinner with my mum. I live locally and have driven past many times - all I can say is that if you live locally too, make sure you go in! The welcome and service we received was so warm and friendly, food was really tasty and there was an added bonus of bread with oil... More

If you ever pop into The North Star after a bike ride to sit in their patio and rehydrate with a pint of orange and lemonade, beware that the pricing will likely shock. 2 pints of orange and lemonade cost £8! When asked how the price of a soft drink was more than a pint of beer, the landlord put... More
