The Heathcote & Star’s reviews from its local regulars pretty much match its mission statement to give the “loyal Leytonstone community great food, drink, entertainment and, above all, character”.
It has a great ambience, with a huge skylight that bathes the place in natural light, a massive function room, and what they say is the biggest beer garden in the area. On offer are Sky/BT Sports along with pool and ping pong, plusa varied music programme from acoustic singer songwriters to pump-it-up DJs.
The food menu is from Paul Human of We Serve Humans and includes proper veggie options (not just tired old bean burgers) and what they describe as a ‘cornucopia’ of drinks including swanky cocktails. No wonder they are confident that it’s a place where old stories will be told, and great new memories made.
