  • Had one of the biggest (and most enjoyable) roast dinners here. Spent the gorgeous sunny afternoon here with friends. Very relaxing place and friendly staff. Reasonably priced too.

  • I've visited The Star a few times now and it never disappoints. Lovely atmosphere, pleasant bar staff and always good music and booze.

    If you haven't tried it already, they do an absolutely wicked bloody mary - 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

Yesterday’s swishing finds. Very pleased with what I got: black skirt, shirt and cardie plus flats for work, frilly white tops, pink vest, silky camis, denim dungaree dress and a handbag!

Once again, thank you so much to everyone who came along and donated. Thanks to your support I have now reached over the £350 target for mindcharity and the race isn’t even for another 11 weeks! So chuffed 😘 let’s keep going - my work will match my fundraising!! #swishing #swish #swishingparty #swapdontshop #circulareconomy #circularfashion #zerowaste #slowfashion #thrifting #moneysaving #hackney #starbyhackneydowns #london #mindcharity #mentalhealth #londonlandmarkshalfmarathon #fundraiser
