10 reasons to host your wedding at The Heathcote and Star

The leafy Leytonstone landmark is the perfect venue for a picture-perfect celebration

The Heathcote & Star, located on the swooping curve of Grove Green Road, is the perfect choice to celebrate and host your big wedding day. If in doubt, here are ten reasons as to why you should book this lovely pub for your reception:

1. Originally opened in 1905 as an East London hotel, pictured below, the mock Tudor Heathcote & Star has played host to weddings for over a hundred years (and with good reason).

2. Nestled in the vibrant heart of Leytonstone, The Heathcote & Star is a delightful neighbourhood pub, exuding charm and character across its many different spaces. With its welcoming atmosphere and array of unique original features, it provides a memorable backdrop for any reception or party, including two lovely function rooms.

3. One of the hidden treasures of the pub is its upstairs function space. The Grove Green room, which has space for a whopping 150 people standing or 100 seated (pictured below), is a versatile space that has its own private bar, toilets, exclusive sound system and large screen projector. As well as some incredible windows.

4. The Heathcote & Star is, of course, the home of the biggest and best beer garden in Leytonstone. It’s so leafy it’s almost semi-rural: picture you and your wedding guests in all your finery in the East London summer sun – or on a crisp spring day. Marvellous.
