Bucking Fastard left this review about Golden Eagle

A corner pub free house with magnificent stained glass windows ,there is a real boozer atmosphere inside.The bar back is equally impressive but sadly poor lighting and little wall decoration give the rest of the interior a strangely bare feeling.In one corner by the bar is an upright piano and there are regular piano evenings.At the far end there are fitted bench seating with brittania tables,but this is a small pub and the drinking shelves will be well used.
Four handpumps were pulling Ilkley Mary Jane,St Austell Tribute,Fullers London Pride and seasonal Boardwalk (NBSS 3.5,justifying 2020 GBG entry).
Rather tinny muzak wasn't need with the pub busy,but it's a decent watering hole without being a true real ale destination.

Unchanged since our last visit, though there seems to be an obvious Irish bent here but perhaps that was the case before? Otherwise, the ale choice is similar with the line-up of a pump not clocked, Pride, Tribute and Brick Brewery’s Peckham Pale APA at a pricey £2.40 a half though very nice.
In all this was a better experience than before; the piano playing was less enthusiastic, though the pianist has been here 30 years and the barman was more forthcoming. A very decent pub with the score upped accordingly.

30th July 2016:

Somewhat surprisingly, this is a traditional backstreet boozer in increasingly fashionable and wealthy Marylebone. Rebuilt in 1890 and well described below with what are clearly some old banded Charrington's leaded lights. This is a small pub with an attractive bar, etched mirror bar back and pot shelf. However, the lower half as well as the t 'n' g panelling are painted fuchsia - it's a bit like drinking inside a pole dancer's thong. There's the upright joanna taking up quite a large chunk of the limited space and the singing and tinkling on the ivories were a bit loud, meaning that conversation would be strained at best.
The rather off-hand landlord was serving Fuller's London Pride, St. Austell's Tribute, Box Steam Brewery's Summer Buzz and Southwark Brewing Co's Bermondsey Best at £2.35 - not bad but really a bit pricey.
This pub is OK and better than the typical pub-cum-style bars that infest the area, but it's not worth a special trip.
