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.
