However last night John and Tracy surpassed all expectations. The buffet was amazing and received many compliments. Entertainment was fab. Got us... More

Staff were very friendly, food tasted like it was cooked from frozen and very over priced-£18.95 for Steak, chips and salad. Dessert even come with free piece of plastic from the packaging. Very disappointing :(

Recently moved to the area, and decided to visit to see what the Sunday lunch was like. We were not disappointed, the food was a really good standard, and there was a proper amount of food on the plate. The staff were very friendly, and made us feel as though we were regulars on our first visit. Will certainly be... More

A friendly welcome is always waiting, whenever we go to The Eagle. The new management is doing a great job to revitalise the pub and put on lots of events. Thursday night quizzes are great there is entertainment every weekend. The food is great value too.

We knew it was quiz night but got there earlier to have some grub. I didn't have a starter and opted to go straight to main. 2 of my other colleagues had starters so had a bit longer to wait but knew that. Anyway, steak was ordered, medium rare. It arrived, with a couple of extra fried eggs, as you... More

Started going back in the Eagle last year after the new owners took over. Have to say they have turned the pub around. It's welcoming with a great selection of drinks, excellent food and a good family feel. The owners cater for a wide audience with different nights as well as weekend events which have been very successful. Keep up... More

This is our third visit to the pub in recent weeks. On our previous visits we enjoyed the food and thought it was good value. Landlady is very friendly and ensures that you are made to feel welcome.
