The Eagle & Child: "Tolkien's meeting place" Eagle & Child Tip by jo104

Eagle & Child, Oxford: 7 reviews and 8 photos


This pub attracts visitors because of its association with the Inlings writing group which met here for drinks between 1939 - 1962, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis were part of this group. In 1962 the association moved to the Lamb & Flag pub.

The pub food certainly is nothing special but the older parts of the pub are quite pleasent with small private areas to drink in.
