Incredible food .. I had the rack of lamb & it was “ Melt in the mouth” my partner plumped for the large Fish n Chips..wowzers was it a whale !! Lovely light crisp batter . Would of been a 5* but although I love the homely country pub feel , it is no excuse for the place to be dirty, especially the carpets & rugs . Give it the love it deserves please .

Travelled to The Eagle and Child to meet up with our wedding dj and go through some details.
Very friendly staff at the pub, excellent social distancing measures were in place and the food was delicious. Could not fault anything. Overall, a very pleasant experience!

The Eagle and Child is one of my local pubs/restaurants and we've always enjoyed decent food and great beers here over the years. The last time I had a drink and some food here was last Autumn when it was open shortly before the lockdown in November and again an enjoyable experience with great staff.
The thing that lets the place down is the shabby exterior appearance with its poorly surfaced front car park and general unkept appearance. This comment is aimed at the owner of the business and is constructive criticism and not intended to be malicious.

Quite a number of local eateries, cafes, pubs in your local area have taken the recent closedown as an opportunity to refurb and tidy up. If this was my business, this is exactly what I would be doing and not resting on my laurels. I walk past the Eagle and Child regularly and a little TLC would do wonders making this lovely,characterful old building more appealing to potential new customers. Just remember that 1st impressions count even more so in this competitive business sector.
