Harden's survey result
“The formula has not changed over the years” at the stripped-back pub, near Exmouth Market, that’s often hailed as London’s first modern-day gastropub. According to its large fan club, it’s still “the original and the best”, thanks to Mediterranean-inspired cooking from the blackboard that’s (almost) as “tasty” as ever; and a “crowded and noisy” setting that’s enjoyably rough ’n’ ready.
“Loud… crowded… open kitchen… stubbly chefs… short Anglo-Mediterranean menu on the blackboard… good beer”; that’s the “dreamy and simple” formula that made London’s original gastropub near Exmouth Market “a benchmark”, and for its very many fans “it still rocks” – “ace” dishes are “generous and full-flavoured”, and enjoyed “in a rough-and-tumble, everyone-having-a-good-time atmosphere”.
“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!”
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”.
