This charming gastropub near the city’s financial district is a great place for a relaxed lunch.
Most visitors to London would do well to avoid the Square Mile, another name for the City of London, where the British capital’s financial institutions are clustered. However, a short walk away in Clerkenwell, there is a good reason to be around.
The Eagle looks like most other pubs from the outside, but peek through the huge windows and you will notice a large open kitchen along the back wall. It is here the team of chefs knock together some amazingly tasty Mediterranean cuisine for a raft of regulars and first timers.
No reservations are taken unless you need a table for six or more, so that means turning up early for lunch and likely waiting around for a while at dinner time. Fortunately, there are worse places to stand around than a pub, and you’ll be able to watch the chefs at work.
Once you get a table, choose from the short menu scrawled on blackboards above the bar. There is usually a selection of Mediterranean-style dishes, from pork and black bean stew to vegetable tagine, as well as the famous steak sandwich. It’s something of an institution, and well worth ordering for just $15.
Whatever you order you can be sure it will be tasty, so relax with a nice bottle of wine and pub meal. Wine and food for two people should set you back around $50.
