Description of the Eagle and Child
A memorial plaque to The Inklings is on a wall in the middle of the pub near the bar, along with a couple portraits and a framed paper bearing the signatures of Lewis, Tolkien, and other Inklings, saying they had drunk to the landlord's health.
In addition to its historic and literary value, the Eagle and Child is also a pleasant place to stop for good food and drink. There is a non-smoking section in the back.
