The Heathcote and Star


The Heathcote and Star joins the Electric Star Group to light the way for a loyal Leytonstone community that wants great food, drink, entertainment, and above all, character.

What are they offering? A lovingly restored watering hole (that’s more like a watering crater) with an unearthed skylight that lets a flood of natural light in, an epic-sized function room for all your more than functional needs, and the biggest beer Garden in Leytonstone.

That’s the building, but what’s going on inside & out? They've got the big games on Sky/BT Sports, but, you may be distracted by getting your own game on, on one of their pool or ping pong tables. Also, it would be remiss of them not to have some seriously brilliant music programming on, from low-key loveliness to a bit of hands-in-the-air DJ action. It’s a Star pub after all.

The main attraction though is their carefully curated cornucopia of drinks to tantalise the taste buds, with a food menu lovingly curated by Paul Human of We Serve Humans. Think low and slow cooked meats, Sunday Roasts your nan would be proud of, and more veggie options than you could shake a bunch of organic carrots at.

They don’t do ‘regeneration’ and just plonk down without a care for the community, so, they want to get to know you, know what you want. They want your old stories, magnificent memories and new ones to be made.

  • A word from the chef:

    How slow can you go? Don’t worry, you won’t be waiting for ages, as Paul Human of We Serve Humans has got the low, slow cooking thing DOWN. Ribs, burgers and chilli sit alongside each other on a menu that’s packed with international influences (Buttermilk fried chicken thighs, kimchi & bacon, anyone?), WSH’s flavour derring-do bursts through (Heathcote wings in Pina colada sauce, pineapple, coconut) and even the fries are elevated to an art-form (Beef dripping/beer, cheese or truffle!). Let’s not forget amazing roasts with meat from the finest British suppliers, liberally doused in excellent gravy accompanied by crispy spuds that make it one of the best roasts in London, nay, THE WORLD! We’ve also got great vegetarian options and a menu for the mini-stars in the family. So, there’s no reason to not come and park up and give the dishwasher some time off. We reckon that Paul will soon be up there with Wossy, Dave B and Alfie Hitchcock as a truly local legend if he keeps this up.

I spend most of my nights staring at the night’s sky and pondering life’s big questions (are we alone? How has no one fallen for my witty Bumble one-liners?). It’s something that runs in the family; with every meteor shower, my dad would take us to the farmer’s field up the road to watch thelittle…
