Particularly like the Fish Pie - with nice little side salad Wood burner makes it cosy by the sofa area. Tables set out well so as not to crowd. Ample parking at front and side. Outside covered area for eating... More

We had a lovely meal one thing that really put a down side is a dog barking why do people want to bring a dog in a eating pub just leave the smelly thing in the car or leave it home

Decided to come here for a nice meal with my friend as I'd been before and really enjoyed it, we started off with nachos and onion rings to share which were lovely, decided to order jalapeño's to go with it but they didn't turn up but still got charged for them! The garlic mayo was congealed and looked like it... More

We often travel from London to Cornwall and this is the ideal place to stop eat and refresh. The pub is clean and staff are friendly, the menu has a good mixture of tasty food for all and reasonable prices. Good parking facilities and you can stretch your legs I recommend

Best burgers around, yet to find a better one. Great taste and value. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Always happy to help. Easy to find, besides the A303.

We live 1h 40 minutes away and my brother lives 1h40m away in a different direction so we chose to meet at the Eagle to exchange Christmas presents. Good choice. The lunchtime atmosphere was excellent and everywhere was spotless. Staff were attentive but not overly so. Best full menu I have seen for a very long time.
