The Eagle Review

Book a table at The Eagle

Top 10 things you need to know about The Eagle:

1) The Eagle pub and restaurant near Shepherd’s Bush is a home away from home with a little touch of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen eccentricity. It feels cosy and familiar with elaborate fabrics and comfy Chesterfields.

2) The Eagle has effortlessly catered for the timeless hobby that is people-watching. There is loads of outside space including a front terrace looking out on to Askew Road.

3) On those rare days in London when the sun is shining, flip flops are out in force, and the only words that speak to you are BEER and GARDEN, The Eagle truly comes to life. The back garden is a colourful hubbub of lush flora; bright garden chairs; and cute garden sheds sheltering large group tables: a quintessential British garden.

4) Feeling peckish? The Eagle has plenty to offer: a standalone and aptly named Burger Shack in the back garden, serving a selection of burgers and curly fries that make for great beer snacks.

5) If you’re in the sharing mood, choose from a menu of British fare, with items like the Ploughman’s Board: soft-boiled Scotch eggs, pork pies, Oxspring's cured ham, pickled onions, celery, mustard, the works.

6) The Eagle has an impressive wine list and GM John can guide you through the wines of the world offering simple, straightforward advice about your wine and food pairings.

7) In the restaurant, modern British pub fare is available with the likes of salt baked beetroot, pomegranate, leek, walnut and watercress salad or a beef short rib starter on the menu.

8) There are plenty of vegetarian options as well as the staple pub classics like fish and chips, steak, and desserts like sticky toffee pudding.

9) But if you just like a pub for its beer, The Eagle has a wide selection of bottled, craft, local and international beers.

10) Above all, it’s the atmosphere of this Geronimo Inn pub that keeps it busy and bustling. There’s something here for everyone. It has a local feel to it, which guarantees regulars, and you can do pretty much anything from a quiet, intimate drink in the corner bar area, to a family dinner in the dining room, or a rowdy get-together with your mates.

“Used be a great garden - until it turned into a giant ashtray. This is our local and, at first, the new management were a big improvement. Now the staff have become distinctly hostile, particularly to families who used to enjoy the garden until their allotted kicking-out time of 7pm. There is a noise problem for local residents caused by the revamping of the garden (this used to be very much an old gits' pub and they never ventured further than the bar) but it is generally caused by the large, rowdy groups who gather late in the evening. The rather frightening landlady clearly hates kids but she has badly misjudged her clientele - most locals are of the young family variety and there are precious few pubs around with a garden to patronise, hence the disappearance of the species from 'her' pub. As for the picnic rugs and games - they disappeared long ago, to be replaced by as many tables as they could cram in above the carpet of fag butts that covers what was once a lawn.”

“Having just moved to the area we've been trying out various pubs and the Eagle is by far the best we've encountered. On a sunny weekend, nothing competes with the garden - spacious, smart and enables you to forget that you're in the middle of a busy city! Fantastic food - barbecue especially recommended and great choice of beers. The staff were helpful and far friendlier than the average London offering. The Eagle is definitely worth going out of the way to visit.”

“A year ago this pub was a family friendly traditional pub. You could get a steak dinner for a fiver. Lots of beers wines and spirits, wonderful for a local family to go to on a sunday for lunch after mass, and watch a football game. Now the Eagle is as an over priced, unfriendly upperclass (thats what they would like you to believe) poncy bar!! Full of people who think they own the place. Leave our pubs alone!!!!”

“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.”

The Eagle Food Menu

Under the guidance of recently installed Food Director Raymond Brown, The Eagle features an impressive range of traditional British comfort food; simply constructed and effectively delivered, a reflection of the pub’s overall ethos. His menu at The Eagle focuses on British classics: pea & ham soup, toad-in-the-hole and beer battered Pollock and chips & mushy peas. Shared dishes, such as slow roast shoulder of lamb with flageolet beans and whole rib of beef with chips in béarnaise sauce, receive prominence and a daily menu re-enforces his commitment to the freshest produce.

The Eagle Drinks Menu

Varieties of cider and real ales complement The Eagle’s wine list, put together by John Clevely, Master of Wine. Clevely has focused on providing a wide variety of individual wines, typical of the region and its grape varieties.
