Quinno _ left this review about The Eagle

Tucked away in the upmarket district of Maida Vale is this classic Sam’s pub. Horseshoe shaped interior, stained windows (too dark to see exactly what was depicted), chequerboard flooring, ceiling fans, real fire, sodium style lighting, brown shades, curtains and a rather attractive doorway. Though oddly there is a pool table round the far side which is incongruous. Worth a quick look are the pictures and prints adorning the walls - lots of historical interest about the area and canal. Upstairs is a comfy dining room/lounge which was unlit and deserted – surely they should be trying to get the punters in to eat on an early Friday evening? Deathly quiet downstairs, clock-ticklingly so; maybe they just live off the takings from the cricket at the nearby Lords ground. The choice at the bar was sparse - no Man in a Box, no OBB – so an Organic Wheat sufficed in all its banana-y glory. Didn’t get much out of this one, overall and had the potential to be much better. 5.5

A Sam Smith pub with an attractive frontage,the interior is all very traditional and old fashioned in the Sam Smith way.The bar is directly infront,the left wing ends in a darts board but no scoring chalk board,while the right side houses a pool table.A rear corridor leads to a staircase to the first floor restaurant ,while the food menu looked classic pub grub with most mains £9-£12.
There is no real ale,but a wide range of house kegged beer with a variety of styles.My Extra Stout was too cold and gassy for comfort,got better as it warmed up but at £1.90 the half maybe Humphrey now realises he can ramp up London beer prices.
Craft keg maybe all the rage with hipsters but Sam Smith keg wasn't pulling in the punters,the pub was quiet and uninspiring despite some quite pleasing internal features.

I used to come here about eight years ago when this was the Robert Browning; it has sensibly reverted to its original name, the Eagle, and is pleasant enough, attracting an older clientele; the real fire is a nice touch though it would seem that bar billiards and darts have bitten the dust.
The barmaid here was very friendly and welcoming. This is a Sam Smith’s pub, so drinkies are fairly predictable though there’s no cask here, just Old Brewery and Sovereign on keg, so I opted for a pint of Taddy Lager. Food is served but looks to be of simple fayre and nothing the worse for that (grub at the Warrington and especially the Alfred will blow a major hole in your wallet).
The Eagle makes for a great mini crawl along with the Warrington, Prince Alfred and Warwick Castle.
