Signature Brew - Roadie - All Night IPA4.30ExcellentMy first couple of pints back in England after two weeks abroad, and boy does cask beer taste good. The great taste of Citra hops in this brew.

Late evening visit. Always worth making use of 10% CAMRA discount here.
Signature Brew - Wild Winter7.30ExcellentEasy-drinking for its strength, this is a mahogany-coloured, lightly-spiced Winter Ale. (Strength this year is 6.8%).

Sunday evening and the pub is quiet (apart from all the firework mayhem outside).
Signature Brew - Signature Pale4.10ExcellentGolden Pale Ale. On very good form here tonight.
Truman's - Firestarter4.20GoodAmber in colour. A good balance of red fruit and astringent hops. Nice.

Quite late in the evening. I had to brave a bouncer on the door to get in. Not clear why he was there; the pub was rather quiet.
Siren Craft - Liquid Mistress Red IPA5.80ExcellentOne of my favourites. Irresistible.
Signature Brew - Session4.00Not Tried
01 Aug 2017 (Stephen Harris)
Late evening visit, just as the quiz was coming to an end. Not for the first time recently I was unable to benefit from the 42p a pint CAMRA discount because no managers were present and only a manager can authorise the discount.
Truman's - Scorcher4.20AcceptableMore of a golden beer with reddish tinges than an actual Red. Citrus hops. Rather thin body.
Siren Craft - Under Current4.50Not Tried
Siren Craft - White Tips4.50Not Tried

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Leyton, Greater London, E15 2BX.

This pub was established in 1887 as the King Harold, replacing the former Grenadier, which had stood further north in Leyton. It was a Savill Brothers pub (the local brewery at the time), eventually passing to Charrington’s. By the turn of the twenty-first century this pub had acquired an exceedingly seedy reputation. To nobody’s surprise, it eventually closed in 2015, but re-opened in July 2016 as the Leyton Star, much refurbished and beautified. It occupies a street corner position, close to Leyton tube station. A large single bar with an upstairs function room (formerly used as a gym). Rear garden. Four handpumps on the bar. CAMRA discount available.

We have visited this pub 41 times, seen 52 different beers and tried 37 of them.
