Review on The Eagle & Child Inn

A superb beer garden by the banks of the River Kent is one reason people make a beeline for The Eagle and Child, a likeable hostelry on the edge of the village of Staveley. Added attractions in this free house include a fine range of local and guest beers, tranquil gardens and the prospect of exploring some of the Lake District's finest scenery.

The kitchen makes use of what the local bakers and butchers can provide, as well as procuring fish and game from Hawkshead and Cartmel. You can sample the fruits of its labours in a cosy setting of slate floors, exposed beams and real log fires.

On the regularly changing menu you might find starters like homemade hummus and black olive salad or potted Flookburgh shrimps followed by, say, beef and Black Sheep ale pie, Cumberland sausage on creamy mash, or something more exotic like stir-fried duck breast with beansprouts and fresh plum sauce or local salmon on coriander crushed potatoes. To finish, try bread-and-butter pudding with honey and Drambuie sauce or Staveley crumble tart packed with fruit.
