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 once the place was full. (Too noisy for an afternoon drink with your paper, though,... More

We went to The Star with family for a pre Christmas celebration with family. The three course Christmas menu offered a choice of four starters, main courses and dessert including a vegetarian option. At a cost of £31.50 it was on the expensive side but this is London prices. The wine list was extensive and the Malbec at £24 was... More

Dinner for 3. We had not booked, arrived by 7 pm early August, there was space inside. Dining is inside or in a quaint beer garden. The dining room is spacious and has a good feel to it, with high ceilings and large windows all around. The bar is in there. There is a piano in a corner - they... More

We had our Wedding Reception upstairs in their function room. My husband and I organised our wedding reception ourselves for 40 our guests, so we absolutely loved being able to go to the venue the night before our wedding to decorate the room the way we wanted it to be decorated. The room was lovely and clean. The staff were... More

We had the most amazing dinner at The Star. We rented a flat for our 10-day vacation in London, and The Star was around the corner. What a find! We went on our 2nd last night and wished we had tried it earlier... we would have returned! The atmosphere was perfect -- it was a Friday night, and there was... More

Really lovely Sunday Roast at the Star. Easy to book a table. They were very accomodating for us and 3 dogs. The service is great - polite and efficient. Good drinks selection. And a choice of 5 sunday roasts is excellent. The food as superb. And not too pricey either. We'll definitely be back.

Slight hiding away amongst the backstreets of Highgate, The Star is arguably one of its hidden gems and is better known to its locals than to those who may be travelling in the area. It's a refreshing environment to come across, whose charm and individuality will surely sway most of its visitors.
