We had Sunday lunch here today - and waited about an hour and 30 minutes for the food to arrive despite repeated requests for them to speed things along. We should have started to worry when it took 20 minutes or more for them to...More

Had Sunday lunch at the pub. I was served a very small amount of meat (especially considering the price), however the staff kindly gave me some extra beef when requested. Generally a nice pub and friendly staff.

We struggled to book online, left a phone message, and when we got to the Star, walking past Highgate Cemetery, they had kept a table. Guests seemed to be mainly 30-somethings, many having birthday suppers. The music was fairly deafening to start with, but unnoticeable...More
