The Experience

A passionate desire to do something different, an exceptional eye for detail 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, with classic local recipes and ingredients given a modern twist, such as the award winning ‘Double Bomber’ pie made with Lancashire Bomb cheese and curd, and Thwaites braised onions. Glen has a background in community regeneration and a commitment to training and employing disadvantaged young people; the service here is faultless. The ‘Incredible Edible’ beer garden is a great space for drinking and dining while the fabulous orangery has floor to ceiling views that showcase the splendid views. Bedrooms are a delightful surprise, brimming with character and comfort. Three doubles with superb 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 130 disadvantaged young people into work through our projects. 70% 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!
