The family gathered in this lovely pub, around a roomy table, for great evening meal and convivial service. Excellent, menu with local produce strongly represented. We sampled the mackerel starter (not that local ! but sharp, with lovely beetroot accompaniment) and then the beef, lamb and chicken - all served beautifully, with three excellent potatoes variants. The seared mini cabbage needed slightly longer cooking. The detail they take with food presentation is impressive. The desserts sumptuous - my bread and butter pudding meringue was excellent, a new twist but old flavours still there. Beautiful berry special also. All with an excellent wine from the extensive menu, and a few pints of Gold. 6 diners, £165 - happily pay this for quality, and that is what you get here - thanks to the team at The Eagle.

We visited on a Saturday lunch time and opted for the 3 course menu. Everything was excellent - from the beautifully cooked fish and lamb main courses to the puddings. At £26 for 3 courses we felt it was very comparatively priced and good value for money. Lovely waiting staff who couldn’t have been more helpful, as we didn’t have a reservation. Very efficient service too! We will definitely be returning again.

Walked in to the very well presented restaurant and was met by a very friendly member of staff. Table of 5 was required and everything was for 3’s or 4’s but without a issue she’d sorted us a very comfortable table of 5.

Menu, at first, was a bit limited for myself and couldn’t see anything for children BUT the waitress couldn’t have been more helpful and I ordered the beef and the kids had the Bolognese and I have to say it was one of the best I tasted! Then as for the beef - wow beautifullly cooked and the sauce !!! Yummy!

My father and wife also had amazing meals so huge compliments to the staff and the chef!!!

We’d highly recommend to other visitors !!!!

Enjoy !

We stayed here one night following a family party a few miles away. Our host was very welcoming. As the weather that day was unusually hot our room would have benefitted from another fan, particularly as it was rather small. Also a lower mirror would have been useful in the bathroom.
However all the staff were friendly and efficient and we really enjoyed our stay. The evening meal and breakfast were exceptional.
