The Eagle


The Eagle is one of the first pubs to introduce a modern and creative menu which changes every day, and transforms into a high-end eatery. There are separate chefs in the lunch times and in the evenings and the service is very efficient. Latin and Reggae songs are played as background music. Seating on the pavement area is provided.

What more to say about the Eagle? You go expecting delicious food, because of the reputation. And indeed it's held to that reputation.... had a piri piri quail with a farro salad which was inventive and tasty. Doesn't break the bank either at 10.80.

The beer selection is a little uninspired, being the same standard draughts you see elsewhere. It's a little chaotic, as many come just to drink...more

The atmosphere is real lively, the open kitchen...more

The Eagle, as we know, is credited with being the first Gastropub and still going strong. It benefits from a location that isn't right next to a tube station or super crowded area so the punters go there as a destination which is good in my book.

The bar serves a good variety of beers and pricing is reasonable.

Foodwise, there's a short menu on the chalkboard above the bar. In fact one side...more
