Taking its name from the crest of the Earls of Derby, The Eagle and Child has existed as a public house since 1650 and boasts a rich and colourful history. During the Civil War the pub was used as a playhouse for Royalist soldiers and later in the 20th Century it became a regular meeting place for The Inklings - a fellowship of authors which included J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Thanks to the selection of fine wines, award-winning real ales and great British pub food, including grilled chicken breast with barbecue sauce, pork and black pudding sausages with mashed potato and macaroni cheese, you'll be glad you've discovered this gem. Still frequented by Tolkien and Lewis fans from across the
globe, The Eagle and Child is a wonderful place to meet new friends and discuss the pub's unique literary history over a pint or a delicious home-cooked meal
