North Star, W5 5JN

Pub in Ealing, in the Good Beer Guide.

It's long and narrow, and seems to have once consisted of three rooms; these have now been knocked through into one, though remnants of the partitions remain. Lighting is provided in the currently-fashionable "bare bulb" style, augmented by fairy lights around the large windows at front and side, though dark-painted ceilings make it feel a little gloomy despite this.

Paintwork on the wood-panelled walls is deliberately distressed, and brickwork on some of the walls has been left exposed. The floor is varnished wood throughout, and seating is a mix of sofas, banquettes, and low and high upright seating. A part-covered patio area runs along the side of the pub.

Kake visited on a Tuesday early evening in September 2017. There were a fair few people in when I arrived around 5pm, but still plenty of free seats. Music was playing, quite an interesting selection, slightly louder than ideal for conversation.

There were four real ales on: Moles Mole Catcher, Long Man American Pale Ale, St Austell Tribute, and Sharp's Doom Bar. A pint of lime and soda was 65p.

Food is served all day, and includes bar snacks such as sweet chilli squid and salt cod croquettes.

Accessibility: Step-free access through beer garden via ramp at side entrance. No steps to the toilets once you're in, including a RADAR-locked accessible one.
