The people make the bookings don't know the pub area, which is a ridiculous thing. I made a booking for 20 people for my bday and specifically asked for an area. I get there and not only my area was booked for another party, but they gave me an area for just 10 people! Basically a massive cock up. I couldn't fit all my guests, it was so frustrating. The pub manager and staff were very nice and apologetic and tried to help as mush as they could, so I appreciate that and they would get 5 stars. But the office booking just spoiled my night, half of my guests were completely left out so this 1 star goes directly to them. They shouldn't be in charge of the bookings, it should be done by the manager as I am sure she is more capable of handling the bookings correctly as she knows the pub. An advice: if you intend on booking an area, call the pub to confirm, I wouldn't trust their booking system to get it right. visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 13 May 2017

Really great venue but they had overbooked - the table/area I wanted had been given away, which was quite disappointing. There was also a mix up with karaoke timings... Perhaps it would have been better to liaise with both bookings to form a compromise as I felt I had been let down twice. Despite that, the karaoke room was really fun with a good selection of music and bar staff were very friendly! Would go back! visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 21 Jan 2017

Poor communication and very disorganised. We booked a specific area for my husband's 30th - they ended up giving us a different area to that which we had booked. They also hadn't processed our drinks order properly. Would not recommend for a function! visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 21 Jan 2017

Hi Christine, thank you for the feedback. I am sorry you were given a different area on the night. Please accept my apologies, I hope you enjoyed the night despite the issues with the area. Thanks Nicola

Booked the karaoke room and had a great night out. Room is quite small and has no drinks service (you need to go downstairs to the bar) but the setup is very good visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 18 Jan 2017

The karaoke room is fab, easy to use and great space (there were 14 of us, which is about perfect. Any more than 13/14 starts to get a little cramped). Very friendly and helpful staff who were on hand to help with all the tech set up. The music in the bar downstairs was not quite the vibe I was hoping for, having celebrated my birthday here for the past 2 years, the DJ downstairs usually plays a good mix of known songs and classics but on this particular evening it was quite heavy dance music, which for me felt better suited to a warehouse party. Still my friends and I had a fab night and I would definitely go again. For anyone wanting to do karaoke there is no better place in East London and great value too. nicolaalexandrou visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 14 Jan 2017

Aside from the atrociously rude Christmas party who also occupied the top floor of the pub, my friends and I had a really great night here. The staff were such lovely people and were super happy to try and give us a hand with technical issues. This was the only reason I didn't score it 5/5 as there were a few problems with the microphones and the lights couldn't be dimmed. But after a few tweaks it wasn't that much of an issue. Honestly, it's an absolute blast, affordable and made all the more enjoyable by really lovely staff members. visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 09 Dec 2016

Friendly and relaxed - a great place to meet for Sunday lunch. Starters and main courses were delicious & plentiful. Didn't have pudding; coffee wasn't very nice at all - but the only blight to an otherwise great meal! visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 11 Dec 2016

The song selection is great and the room very nice, but the karaoke equipment is plasticcy and awful and sounded hideous. The mics kept breaking and two had broken (with no rough treatment) before the first hour was out - meant we were left with only 1 for the majority of our session, which is worse than average really when you've paid for a karaoke session and people want to sing together etc. I did ask one of the staff if they might give a partial refund or a couple of drinks or something but she said she had to speak to her manager and then never came back to me. I'd definitely recommend if they buy some sturdier/higher quality gear, otherwise I'd have to recommend giving this place a wide berth if you like being able to hear yourself when doing karaoke! I appreciate this may not be an advantage to everyone.... visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 08 Dec 2016

Last minute booking for karaoke on my birthday so only a few of us there. Room hadn't been cleaned before we arrived but staff apologised and cleared out the glasses. Really disappointed that only a roast is available for food on a Sunday. Completely impractical for a karaoke night so I didn't eat. Shame. Rates very good though but lots of songs weren't available. visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 04 Dec 2016

The night was great! Thanks to the team at the star on sat night. The only thing I would say is perhaps once a reserved areas party commences you go around, mainly because we had uninvited people in our area and we had to ask them a few times to move on Thanks again though Xx visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 19 Nov 2016

The food, once it arrived was fine but 1 hour and 15 minutes for a main course is unacceptable!! Apparently that's because there was a private function upstairs but that should have been accounted for in advance or they shouldn't have taken orders downstairs if that was the case. Also the place smelt of old beer, unclean. I asked for an orange flavour drink like j2o or equivalent, the waitress didn't know what they did or didn't have and then came back to say they only sold orange juice which seems very limited for a pub. Will not return! visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 06 Nov 2016

Thank you so much guys! We had a wonderful time and were really impressed with Baccus sunday's roast! Really lovely service!

Brilliant evening. We were visiting London for a few days from Devon and I'm so glad I found this gem of a place. We had the 3 sliders and shared and a pulled pork burger. It was delicious. We also stayed for the Tuesday night pub quiz. Brilliant Vampire theme complete with pumpkin carving round. Lady running the quiz was fantastic and the questions weren't ridiculously hard like most pub quizes! Would definitely recommend. visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 25 Oct 2016

It was described as one of the best Sunday roasts in London. It isn't. Although you nowadays expect moody (so called cool) staff in East London, you shouldn't have to wait 35 mins for the meal as well. Very disappointed from the staff to the food. It's pretty pricey as well so I would high recommend going elsewhere. visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 23 Oct 2016

I booked a table and 1 hour of karaoke at the Star of Bethnal Green for my birthday. The staff was so great - when we turned up I was seen to straight away even though the bar was full. They showed me the table I reserved and moved the people drinking from there and cleaned the place ready for me and my guests. Karaoke was a hit so all in all was great venue with amazing staff. Would recommend if you were to host your party there. jessie visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 01 Oct 2016

We booked this venue for a couple of hours for an event and it turned out really well. The stuff was so lovely and helpful. The pub looks great; it's got that quirky atmosphere which we really liked. Very good facilities apart from the fact it took us long to get the projector to work and we only got it to work when someone from our party helped out. So a small minus for not organising this too well (we have mentioned we wanted to use projector). The food was very tasty, but we felt it was slightly expensive for the portion sizes we had. However all in all, a great venue in a very nice location with genuine staff. Laxmi visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 13 Aug 2016

We had an amazing hen night at the Star. Cocktail making followed by VIP karaoke room experience. We were given the chance to make lots of different cocktails and 2 bottles of prosecco along with the karaoke. We didn't want to leave the karaoke room and carried on our night at the star for the remainder of the night. It was a brilliant evening, I would definitely recommend. kylereecepreston visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 04 Mar 2016

I celebrated my birthday at The Star for the second year in a row after having a great experience in 2015 also. I had the karaoke room for 2 hours and then the stage area for the rest of the night to celebrate. The Karaoke room is great fun and very well soundproofed so you don't have to worry about disturbing other people in the pub. Great selection of songs and easy to use system. My only regret is that I only booked 2 hours - easily could have spent another 2 doing karaoke! The pub area downstairs is great for a Saturday night of celebrating as the tables are cleared for dancing to the great tunes spun by their super cool DJ. Awesome night all round! nicolaalexandrou visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 09 Jan 2016

Had a great birthday night out with friends on Saturday. I had originally booked the brick corner online which was really easy to do. When we arrived, however, we were allocated to the stage instead as the party who were there before had left early which was fantastic for us and a great space! The staff were brilliant and really helpful and the music was fun. Only thing was that being a warm summers evening it got really hot as more people arrived!

Visited recently on a work night out and found the whole experience great. I reserved space in the bar for around 12 people and booked the karaoke room, which was all done online and without any problems at all. The staff are really friendly, the bar food is great and the karaoke room was a lot of fun. Would definitely go there again.

Amazing way to celebrate my big old birthday, upstairs, stacks of room. Lighting was lovely and intimate. Food was top notch and everyone loved it. We had our own little bar team and there was such a lovely atmosphere - with enough music spilling up from downstairs but not so much we couldn't talk. It ran super smoothly and I got to sing in the kareoke room next door so what's not to love. Totally happy. 5 stars all round.

The food was amazing and I am particularly impressed by the quality as we were an office-party of 30 people. Much better quality than any fancy restaurant we have ever booked for our office Christmas dinner. Staff is friendly and competent, very good selection of beers.

Let me start by saying that the staff at the Star are amazing and friendly and efficient. We booked the stage area on Friday, which is an excellent vantage point to soak up the atmosphere. Sadly none of the bar snacks on the menu were available. The Star used to knock out some really tasty pizzas and I can't help wondering whether they shouldn't stick to this formula rather than get pop-ups that ultimately don't deliver. The bar manager, Owen, was very understanding and helpful and let us bring in food from outside. Lastly, I was expecting soul/disco/funk music but it turned out to only be rockabilly. No one was dancing but still the DJ didn't get the hint. I'm just a little disappointed that the booze/food/dancing I'd promised my friends didn't pan out that way.

We booked the upstairs venue for a group of 25 for the Saturday night. Nadean, Owen & Dan were very helpful and accomodating on the evening. Everyone really enjoyed the evening and Dan was very flexible on when the food was served. The food went down really well with everyone and there were no problems the entire evening. Good selection of ales and lagers on tap and a great atmosphere in general. I would highly recommend this venue and would not hesitate to book it again in the future.
