The Eagle & Child

Ramsbottom, Lancashire

Award-winning community pub with lovely new rooms, a vibrant beer garden, new orangery restaurant and menus focusing on Lancashire’s finest


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A passionate desire to do something different, and a clear vision from the start, to create a community pub with top-quality food, has been key to the Eagle’s soaring success. Menus focus on Lancashire’s food heritage and classic local recipes and ingredients are given a modern twist. Hearty and affordable dishes include black pudding Scotch egg; braised beef shin and oxtail suet pudding; plum tart and clotted cream. Disadvantaged young local people are trained in the kitchen, and alongside community group Incredible Edible Ramsbottom, Glen has transformed former waste ground into a beer garden – a fabulous space for education, food production, drinking and dining – while the new orangery has floor to ceiling views that showcase the splendid views. Bedrooms are a delightful surprise, brimming with character and comfort. Three doubles with en suite wet rooms, and two suites with Juliette balconies and baths with showers, each room is named after an owl and features strikingly bespoke artwork and murals. An absolute delight.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Glen Duckett

  • Eagle and Child is an old coaching inn built in 1820. Formerly known as 'Top Bunk' it was used as a stay-over on the trip to Strangeways and the old prison cells are still very evident today, but now used to store beer!
  • We have fine views across Ramsbottom to Holcombe moor, part of the west Pennine moors. You can see Peel Tower from our dining room. A folly to Robert Peel, who started the police force, the tower is lit up at night and one of the fabulous local views!
  • We have our own 'Incredible Edible Beer Garden' where we grow over 40 types of fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers, all of which are used in our dishes. The garden was developed from waste ground and is one of Ramsbottom's Incredible Edible project
  • We were established to help to tackle youth unemployment in our local area. Since we opened we have supported over 100 disadvantaged young people into work through our sister company EAT (Employment and Training) Pennines. 80% of our staff are under 25
  • Ramsbottom is a great little market town with fabulous shops + events throughout the year. It was voted in the Top 3 best high streets in the UK in 2013! Annual events include a chocolate festival, pie festival, Ramsbottom music festival + a 1940s weekend!
  • Ramsbottom is home of the legendary black pudding throwing competition where Bury black puddings are thrown at Yorkshire puddings. This refers back to the War of the Roses, when the Lancastrians took to throwing food at invading Yorkshiremen!
