Summary

“The grandfather of gastropubs” near Exmouth Market “is still showing the way after all these years”. “The gastro dining experience elsewhere has become dull, but the Eagle remains true to its roots”“loud crowd, open kitchen, stubbly chefs, short Anglo-Med menu on blackboard, good beer: brilliant!”

Summary

Even after all these years, there’s still “rarely a false note” at “the original and best gastropub” – an engagingly “grungy” and “low key” hang-out, near Exmouth Market; the “rustic” Mediterranean cooking is “reasonably priced”, and “there’s always something new and interesting on the menu”.

Summary

“The original gastropub and still one of the best”; this “fun” Farringdon watering hole has held true to its “unpretentious” formula over many years, and still offers “well-seasoned, honest, seasonal, posh-peasant food, plus very reasonable wine”.

Summary

“The first, and still among the best”; this “vibe-filled” Farringdon boozer helped coin the term ‘gastropub’, and still offers “imaginative” Med-inspired dishes from its blackboard menu.
