"I'd like to qualify my above comment by saying that (thanks to Time Out) we had to go in the Star on a Tuesday night to claim a free cocktail recently. It wasn't full of posers and sloanes (just some kids) and so we got to meet the owner Jake, who is a lovely man and mixes a mean cocktail. All of which made me feel bad about slagging it off above. I had one of Jake's own creations; the Sally Cinnamon and it is really delicious. So - Saturday night (like anywhere) is busy and noisy but I'm eating humble pie and saying its a great place for cocktail, particularly if you get 5 mins with Jake.
As for Pauline's comment above, it gets busier as the week heads towards the weekend; Friday is a good day to come. Not too busy and still quite a bit going on. Can you guess that I live here?"
