A word from the chef:
The Joint was born in august 2012 as a pop-up by Warren dean and Daniel Fiteni. The idea was to create simple fast food with a twist. Having worked around the world honing their craft, warren and daniel decided to come together as they believed the combination of chef meets baker concept would work exceptionally well.

Fantastic time at the Start of Bethnal Green. Booked a space for 12 people just a few hours before - one of the staff members called to find out which part of the pub I fancied reserving - such a thoughtful gesture. Great music and great fun. visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 15 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

The staff here are ALWAYS awesome and friendly. Great bunch of people. We've booked tables/areas for parties and group events, and it's always a great time and a great atmosphere. Super fun pub quiz too! mattstan217 visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 12 Jun 2016

Booked two teams for the pub quiz thanks to super helpful staff. The pub quiz was great fun and a good level of challenging, definitely recommend. Burgers underwhelming, however chips very tasty. lindsayh visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 28 Jun 2016

I booked an area for a friend's surprise 30th birthday. It was easy to book, the staff were so friendly and helpful and they really helped to make it a night to remember for the birthday girl. Thanks again and I plan to come back soon! Alison visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 11 Jun 2016

Booked an area on the ground floor for my 40 guests to celebrate my 30th birthday. Staff was exceptional, always smiley and super helpful throughout the night - which is so rare to find nowadays. Great atmosphere, reasonably priced drinks and the night flew away. Definitely recommend for a birthday - we had so much fun! X

I had an amazing birthday celebration here! I rented the upstairs area and had a dinner party for 20 people, followed by another 30 guests arriving later. The food was great, and we had a great time in the karaoke room . The staff were incredibly helpful and I got the whole package for really good value. Can highly recommend hosting a party here! victoriastahle visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 12 Mar 2016

The nicest staff I've ever met! Really helpful and friendly. The location was great with its own private bar upstairs in the function room and we had an amazing time. bea123 visited The Star of Bethnal Green on 13 Mar 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.
