About the Pub

Close to Plumstead Common in the area known locally as "Birds Nest Hollow", this friendly pub is an uphill climb from the town centre. It remains one of London's Real Heritage Pubs, however, during the refurbishment of 2019 a rare screen, barely over head height that split the two bars fronting Jago Close, was sadly removed. The saloon bar on the left is contemporary with its inter-war rebuilding and remains largely as it was. In bygone days, when Woolwich Arsenal played its football matches on the common, the team used the Star as its changing room. Pizza based food menu has been introduced. One of the 5 Plumstead Common Idlers being the Star that never shone. 4 handpumps, sometimes a cider like Westons Old Rosie is sold.
