So, it seems that the Star has gone downhill again. The beer is still fine, but there's no way that Fullers would risk the reputation of a pub that's been in every edition of the Good Beer Guide, so that's no surprise. The disappointment is the food. The steaks have gone up in price again, to £14. I don't mind paying £14 for a steak. But I do mind paying £14 for four measly ounces of overcooked ribeye. It could just be that the kitchen was busy, or that they were trying to eke out a dwindling supply of meat (neither of which would be acceptable, but would at least suggest that standards hadn't plummeted), but the continental meat platter we had as a starter was pretty mediocre, too. It's under new management again.

My disappointment was so bitter (and the portions now so meagre) that I bought a fillet steak from M&S at Victoria, and cooked it rare and ate it just with wholegrain mustard when I got home.

Avoid for another year, I suggest.
