As a family, with friends and as a couple we Have eaten at the North Star about 12 times in the last year, one persons meal on one visit was a disaster and they couldn't have been more apologetic. Otherwise good pub meals, reasonably priced in a very welcoming bright light atmosphere. Great place to go for a casual meal.

We ate here early on Sunday evening. We were advised on arrival that they had run out of beef should we want to order a roast. When 3 of us ordered steak we were told that there were only 2 steaks left. However, the food was really really nice. Two of our party ordered pate to start which came up... More

Earlier last year I wrote a very negative report about the sandwiches we had at lunch time and the fact that we had a very sub standard evening meal last time we visited. We were taken there yesterday for lunch and it was really good, what an improvement!! It was a very nice touch to get a small plate of... More

For the starter I choose 'The Goat's Cheese & Beetroot Tart' - with crushed hazelnut and leaf salad, unusual but very good, my main meal was 'The 4 Hour Braised Blade of Beef' with button onions red...
