Reverted back to its name from the 16th century The Star. Slightly typical Wetherspoons, 6 pulls, usual names with occasional guests. Interesting series of 16th century wall paintings now preserved behind glass. One main bar and beer garden. Early days for this pub, but could be worth watching.

Now owned by Wetherspoons and renamed The Star.
Probably one of the smallest 'Spoons and gets very busy.
The bar is at the back of the pub on the top level of three.
There is an interesting preserved plastered wall downstairs and old beams upstairs.

The bar has two banks of six handpumps. Usual regulars; Ruddles, Abbott and IPA. Two or more pumps with the 'availiable soon' pump clips and two Xmas beers; Christmas Steps and Pudding Stone alongside Stour Valley Gold.

If you find a vacant table you have done well. We waited some while for a table to become available.
Our meal was spoilt by young children constantly running wild amongst the diners, whilst their single mothers did absolutely nothing to stop them. An hour of this does wear you down.
If you say something you are in the wrong.
The manager needs to 'grow a couple' and restore some level of discipline.

Overall, pleasant staff, decent beer but may become far too busy to be enjoyable.

This lager palace is now closed and boarded up. Spooners has a bid in to take it over. Shame as it looks great from the out side, its just the inside that is awful and I don't just mean the drinks.

I like to see a pub sign which underneath its picture says 'Freehouse'.
Hopefully inside are some lesser known ales and not Greene King swill.

I always thought 'freehouse' meant the landlord could choose what beer he could sell/stock and probably change to other beers daily, weekly, monthly or whenever. Perhaps I'm wrong.
I know my eyes are failing and perhaps I should wear glasses but.............where is the real ale in here?
All I could see were chrome plated 'tee' pipes with a bank of cold fizzy keg crap and even colder lagers.

Did I miss the real ale or did the sign say 'Freefromale'?
Won't be back if it is the latter.

Another fabulous-looking pub along Hoddesdon High Street. Very lively and full of a young local crowd.
