The Eagle and Child Inn


Staveley (about 5 miles East of Windermere)

The Pub

Inside, the Eagle and Child has a cosy, traditional country feel, achieved by the combination of slate floors, exposed beams and real log fires, whilst outside there are two fantastic beer gardens offering beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and the River Kent.

Food and Drink

The Eagle and Child use village suppliers for meat and fresh breads, with fish and game also coming from local sources. All of their food is freshly prepared in house and they also offer a variety of tasty, freshly prepared vegetarian dishes. Menus are changed on a regular basis to include special offers and deals on two or three course meals and children are well catered for with their ‘Junior Eagles Menu.’ The Eagle and Child are proud to have been included in the CAMRA good beer guide each year since 2000 and their drinks menu reflects this with many local ales appearing alongside a great selection of both draught and bottled lagers, over twenty malt whiskeys and a comprehensive wine list. To find out more about the current food and drink menus please visit their website (contact details below)

For The Dogs

Dogs are very welcome in the bar areas and the beer gardens at the Eagle and Child, where there are water and treats in plentiful supply, and perhaps more, with the owners’ trialing some Doggy Beer this previous Summer.

You and your dog are sure to receive a warm welcome from Richard and Denise and their own pooch Charlie (pictured above)
