The Eagle, Shepherds Bush (Bar / Restaurant)
“This is my local and I am very smug about that fact! Venue: Large bar area split by sofas, tables and the like. Has a local pub feel about it, clean and well presented and the furnishings are holding up well (opening summer 2004). Very unusual decor in the ladies - the refurb budget had obviously run out by then and they free styled it! The garden is large and split level, lots of seating and well lit in the evenings, note - no heaters for Autumn evenings though. Drinks: great range of wines by the bottle and glass, reasonably priced champagnes and all are well kept. Draft beers, Belgium lagers and English cider on tap. Over the summer they had 8 types of Pimms mixes on offer so top marks there! Locals: Pretty much white middle classes with a few Australians popping in to play Jenga. A friendly bunch and all are welcomed by the bar staff, who are polite and efficient. Quite a few families in over the summer that seems to have trailed off a bit now. The bar is sufficiently large to never seem crowded however busy it is, but when quiet the layout gives it a sitting room feel which is great. Food: Great! From the standard bangers and mash, through the slow roast lamb shanks to the glorious open steak sandwiches it has become by preferred choice for supper. Food until 9:30 each night. Only down side is I thought there Sunday roasts were a bit weak but that was a few months ago and they may have got that sorted by now. Entertainment: Not their big thing, music tends to be cool house, laid back style and there are no TVs (YIPEE!) Overall: A winner, knocking spots of the other locals in into category (the Seven Stars (over priced and pompous) and the Askew (hair in the food, too loud and rude) pop along and see how good a local can be.”
