Service wasn’t great! Asked a few time to be served and staff would say they would come back but never did and when I finally got someone at 10 past 9 she told the bar was closed in a rude manner! No one came round to tell us when last ordered was!

I never normally moan as Ive worked in bars and restaurants myself and know what it can be like! But this time really wasn’t a great experience

Really quick service. In fact we had multiple staff come up to us to ask if we’d ordered when we had. Lovely venue, and food was great. Will be returning. COVID secure also with hand sanitiser at every table.

Great service from the Five Pointed Star Team.

On this occasion unfortunately there were four very loud ladies having a drink who were shouting so loudly it was very difficult to hear my partner who was sitting right next to me...

Sadly dinner was not what we ordered, service is a problem there to busy selling beer in the garden and not interested in people sitting inside, wouldn’t recommend it especially not with children.

Every time I have been there I have always had a great time, the table was set up perfectly for the Fa cup final which Arsenal won so made me happy. The bar staff were excellent, couldn’t fault any of them. Will 100% be going back.

The food was very tasty! The service was a little bit slow, but I think this was because they were very busy and maybe weren't expecting so many customers due to the uncertainties of post-lockdown. The ambience was nice, until later in the evening when three very drunk ladies came and sat next to us and proceeded to shout, swear and stumble around a lot; at this point, rather than having another drink or pudding, we decided to leave.

Excellent venue, we went on a Thursday evening, mixed ages. Good atmosphere. Really good service in terms of politeness. Unfortunately there were very long waits for drinks, as table service only, which I fully understand in the current times. It was great to see it open again.

Slow awful service, staff were extremely rude. Over priced for what you get. Was sitting waiting an hour and a half just for 2 drinks. Understaffed. No social distancing measures were taken.

Lovely food, friendly staff who could not do enough. We went for my dads 70th birthday. They bought out his cake and sang happy Birthday to him. All in all a great experience. Thank you five pointed star. X

We went for a late Sunday lunch (4 people) and had a mixture of the roast chicken and the steak. It's a traditional pub with a cosy dining area (there are tables in the main part of the pub too) and it has a nice atmosphere. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the staff were very friendly.

Enjoyed a lovely meal with friends in the 'snug'. We had a concert to go to after our meal and despite being very busy they were able to accomodate our needs. The food was delicious and very generous.

Fantastic service from start to finish, had the huge dish from the smokehouse menu and it was delicious, pulled pork, pork belly, mac and cheese, dirty fries, beans, it was the best comfort food I've had for a long time, will definitely be going back again
