A popular Truman Brewery flagship on Ladbroke Grove.

Away from the absolute chaos that greets you outside Ladbroke Grove tube and up the nearby hill sits The Eagle. It’s bright and airy in summer, dark and cosy in winter –
a perfect local if ever there was one. Hippo Inns has invested heavily in this establishment, with big and plentiful windows lending a natural light, dark wood floors, comfy seats by a fireplace and an island bar topped with two big, bold tanks (the traditional, ‘bright’ kind), holding the brewery’s Raw lager, which will drip condensation on you, should you happen to stand in the wrong place. The fact that the tanks are replenished every three or four days tells you that whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right.

Pints, in general, come in on the wrong side of a fiver, not that it seems to bother punters much. The staff, as with the majority of the clientele, are young, vibrant and chatty. There’s a slight Bavarian twist to the menu, with pork knuckle and German sausage among the unexpected items. While a burger came up pretty rare and greasy on my visit, the chicken schnitzel with fried duck egg and baby gem salad was superb. And to (literally) top it all, there’s another huge area with a bar upstairs; on a weekend afternoon you should pull up a seat by a window and survey all life before you. The eagle has landed.

The Eagle says
Just a short stroll from Ladbroke Grove station and you’ll arrive at The Eagle. Spread over two floors, downstairs you’ll find a classic, relaxed pub complete with wood fire and spectacularly fresh Truman’s Raw beer, which sits proudly above the central bar in two impressive copper tanks. Upstairs is the Spirit Station and Cocktail Cupboard. Our glamorous dining space and intimate cocktail lounge are both sumptuously decorated, as perfect for that cosy dinner as they are for a full knees up.

The food showcases the best of seasonal, fresh British produce severing pub classics alongside innovative dishes and daily specials.

Delivering great food and drink in a fabulous setting, we are proud to be part of the Hippo Inns family.
