The Eagle and Child

The Eagle and Child is a pub in Staveley, a village between Kendal and Windermere in Cumbria at the southern end of the Lake District national park. The main road carrying heavy tourist traffic from the M6 used to pass right through the village, separating the pub from its riverside garden, but the construction of a by-pass several years ago has meant that you can now get your pint across the road without too much risk of getting flattened.

Two or three times a year the pub holds a festival featuring beers from all quarters including Hawks head ales from the recently relocated brewery in the old wood-yard in Staveley. There’s no better place for a warm evening than sitting in the beer garden where the rivers Kent and Gowan meet, enjoying live music, sampling a few pints, and maybe having a spot of the excellent grub on offer too. If it’s chilly there’s a fine open fire inside. Only trouble is the buses and trains to Windermere don’t run late enough to get me back home after last orders. Step in mrs grim,
she’ll come and get me when I’m done. Not too done, obviously.
