Open all year

Surrounded by miles of excellent walking, cycling and fishing country in a quiet village, this friendly inn shares the same name with several pubs in Britain, which refers to a legend of a baby found in an eagle's nest during the time of King Alfred. The rivers Kent and Gowan meet at the pub’s gardens with its picnic tables for outdoor eating and local-ale drinking. Dishes include ingredients from village suppliers, such as Moroccan lamb braised in spices, Cumberland sausage and hunter’s chicken. Non-meat choices might be home-made cheese, leek and potato pie or wild mushroom tagliatelle.
