The Portobello Star is said to be Robbie Williams' local pub and Chris Evans, Princess Margaret and the cast of Hollyoakes have all enjoyed drinks here. A quiet place with comfortable seating, it is usually dominated by old men watching the horse racing flickering on the TV in the corner. However, on weekends and market days it can get quite hectic. The bar, in its various previous avatars has been in existence since the 18th Century and has a lot of historic character to show for it. Pub food is served on weekends. Cocktails are a specialty and the talented bartenders mix with aplomb. There's draught beers and other spirits as well. Make sure you sample a hot toddy, as with lashings of brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, honey and hot water, it's great for colds and winter chills.
