Tris C left this review about The Star of Bethnal Green

Renamed thus in 2008, the place has undergone a number of names since it lost the original White Hart in 1989, including the Cock & Comfort. It's also the sister pub to the Star of Kings at King's Cross - I can well believe it.
It's a gloomy slightly Goth pub with a mainly all-over black paint scheme, some dark floral wallpaper and a little distressed bare brick. Lighting is minimal, some of it coming from what look like oversized fairy lights. There are semi-booths and a slightly raised area to the front left area. Furniture is conventional modern, with tables punctuated by large squeezy bottles of ketchup and mayonnaise, which looked lovely. Music at a modest level played over the gramophone to a young customer base, few in number.
The barman was a bit aloof and I noticed that the two pumps - round the side of the bar - are now unused, leaving a couple of chrome founts. I opted for a half of the Goose IPA at a painful £2.70, which tasted a bit yeasty - dirty lines?
This isn't my sort of thing and the Old George is virtually next door.

One room with bar to rear. No real ales, just keg rubbish.

A large corner pub, single roomed with sensible height table and chairs with a couple of leather sofas tucked away in the corners. There seemed to be a party on the go in a room up the stairs Pub SignMan mentions, I presume a private function. Three pumps on the bar, Reunion Frost Fair,Rosies Pig Cider and one vacant, I didn't think the ale would be to my taste so opted for a keg Goose IPA.
The pub is nothing special and as such I would be unlikely to return.
