The North Star is a proper traditional local pub, but that doesn’t mean spit and sawdust, or dodgy blokes offering to sell you gear at knockdown prices. Rather, it’s small but beautifully formed, with one bar, two rooms and a good selection of cask and keg ales in the most adorably pretty part of Leytonstone. What’s not to like?
With Farrow&Ball inspired dark painted wood, and vintage-looking wooden furniture, the only quibble from people is that it can be hard to get a table because of its highly reviewed Thai food and its handmade-to-order pizzas. The clientele is proper pub – a mix of locals, young, old, working, retired, families, hipster, eccentric and a few ordinaries for irony.
