The Star of Bethnal Green: The Venue

The Star of Bethnal Green, known as “The Star” to locals, is a homely pub on Bethnal Green Road. It’s part of the Star family who own Star by Hackney Downs, Star of Kings, Leyton Star, The Heathcote and Star and The Fellowship and Star, which has recently just been successfully launched. Bloc users can receive 6 ⭐ for attending all their venues.

Rob Star, the mastermind behind the venues, also started the anticipated Eastern Electrics festival, which can be found in the ‘Specials’ section of Bloc and be checked into.

The Star is an unconventional watering hole that does it all. It’s quiet and relaxed during the daytime, with DJ’s in the evening getting people on their feet. It’s lively but not too busy and is spread over two floors. There is even a karaoke room.

The food is way above standard for any pub in London, with their burgers and Sunday roasts being the highlights. The drinks menu is robust, with locally brewed beers, classic cocktails and organic ciders. The wine list isn’t bad either.

There is even a loyalty card system for locals who can collect points on purchases to exchange for credit and they even get a free bottle of prosecco on their birthday.

The Star deserves it’s reputation and if you’re in the area we definitely recommend you go. It’s a great place to meet friends and the food is exceptional.
