Welcome to The Eagle

The Eagle is one the oldest inns in Cambridge dating back to the 14th century. A very traditional experience with cask ales and home cooked food very much at the forefront of the business. Not only does the Eagle provide traditional English cask ales, a selection of wines and carefully prepared home cooked food, you can also sit where Watson and Crick announced to the world they had discovered "the secret of life" (DNA). Also, you can look at the famous RAF ceiling which boasts signatures of RAF pilots from all over the world who returned from the Second World War and signed their names on the ceiling using only cigarette lighters, candle smoke and lip stick or maybe chill out in our gorgeous courtyard style outside eating area.
