“Cracking Pub with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Lost for things to do New Years Eve day, me the wife and three young kids ended up trying out The Eagle + Child for lunch. From the moment we walked in the service was faultless... the pints of Thwaites and Peroni spot on... and the food delicious... all 3 courses! If you want a perfect pint, awesome local food served by friendly staff, then you can't go wrong in this little gem of a pub. Just can't wait for the next pay day and another little jaunt down to The E+C for round 2!

“Disappointing evening”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Having been here before and thoroughly enjoyed it we went with some friends in december and were very disappointed with the quality of the christmas menu. In the first instance we were given a table upstairs which had very limited heating and no atmosphere at all. The christmas set menu was not up to standard ,a couple of our friends had the turkey dinner which was cold and the turkey very dry, I'd ordered pan fried plaice but when it arrived it looked as if it had been poached and looked very unappetizing, the rest of our party said their food was just ok but they wouldn't be hurrying back. Please keep to your normal menu even at christmas time.

Hi Liz

Thanks for taking the time to review us. I am sorry that you were disappointed on your last visit, I just wish you had discussed your concerns with me on the evening and I would have done my best to resolve them for you and your party. We work hard to ensure that we get things right, and as you say, you have enjoyed our services before, so I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience over Christmas on a return visit. We did have our full menu available during December, alongside our Christmas menu and we had lots of compliments on the quality and value offered. Wishing you all the best for 2013 and hope to see you soon.

“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We're lucky to live just a few minutes walk from The Eagle and Child, and we've been eating there regularly since the relaunch in October 2011. We've nipped in for mid-week dinners, for large-group family meals, and for more special occasions such as Valentines Day, Christmas Day and our wedding anniversary. The food really is excellent every time- a nice balance of gourmet and traditional Lancashire ingredients- and manages to feel a bit decadent without being pretentious. The staff are very lovely- warm, friendly and knowledgeable- and always accommodating. We love the pub even more because of their social enterprise scheme, the 'incredible edible beer garden', and because it contributes so positively to the local community. 10/10!

“Wonderful Food and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Our table of 4 booked for New Years Eve lunch and were pleasantly surprised. All food seasoned perfectly, served with flair and enthusiasm from our waitresses Emily and Bethany (special credits should be awarded for their knowledge and customer service). Dining room busy but perfectly functioning and food flowing with ease and professionalism. Stunning views over Holcombe Tower and Pennine Moors. Worth a visit for lovely spot of lunch.special mention to all the young staff Emily, Bethany, Tom and Daniel. Great team!
