The Star Tavern in Belgravia has an illustrious history – it was in the upstairs room that the Great Train Robbery was planned. This claim to fame was celebrated in 2014 with a themed event and one of the original robbers even turned up.
The pub is also known for serving top-notch food and drink. The menu is adapted regularly to accommodate the season’s best offerings. Traditional favourites that have stood the test of time can also be found on the menu, including fish and chips and burgers. Friday is pie day, and there’s a roast on Sundays that features chicken, lamb, beef and vegetarian options, and smaller portions for children.
This Fuller’s pub has featured in the Good Beer Guide every year since 1974. Here, you’ll discover a wide selection of beers and seasonal guest ales, which hail from a number of London-based microbreweries. Alternatively, choose from the selection of wines and spirits. These are equally impressive as The Star Tavern boasts its own homemade gin infusions – past editions include the sweet plum and kiwi gin, and an intriguing truffle oil and olive variety.
Customer service is of the utmost importance at The Star Tavern. Whether you’re attending a private function upstairs, hiding from the cold by the real fire on the ground floor or tucking into a hearty meal, prepare to be greeted cordially, served with a smile and seen off with a cheery ‘see you soon’.
