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

Unfortunately today the sandwich my husband had was awful, he had a cheese and chutney. 1 slice of processed cheese, lots of rocket and a bit of chutney for £5. Very bad value. We have been going there for... More

My husband and I had supper at the North Star last Saturday evening and we found it absolutely delightful. The Landlord was a charming man as was our waiter and waitress. We had our dog with us and the Landlord and our waiter and waitress made us all very welcome - we couldn't have wished for better service. We chose... More

Felt the place didn't want children in the pub even though they advertise as a family pub.... Don't think after witnessing what happened I'll be going back to this place any time soon... One member of staff was very rude to a paying customer. Liked the bar and toilets were very clean but watching someone kick off about members of... More

Lovely gravy too. Staff checked that everything was ok while we were eating. Aside from the main menu there was a specials board and a... More

I've been to The North Star a couple of times for a meal and never had anything bad to say about it. The food is delicious and I always look forward to going there again. To start I had the most delicious hummus and bread I've ever tasted. The hummus was creamy and a generous portion, the bread was soft... More

This is a pub we have started to visit fairly regularly because of the consistent quality of its food a friendly service. There is a wide range on offer from the standard menu, supplemented by a board of 'specials' which change on a regular basis. Good food a fair prices.
