Roger Button left this review about The Eagle

Tucked away off the main Shooters Hill Road, the Eagle is very much a local's pub that from the previous reviews seems to have had its fair share of ups and downs. The frontage has plenty of window space letting making the open interior quite light. The bar is centrally positioned with a public bar area to the left with a rather prominent pool table, dart board and plasma screen. In one corner is a small menagerie containing a mischievous parrott and a couple of snakes firmly contained in glass tanks. To the other side of the bar is a saloon bar area for want of a better description although the fairly plain pub by numbers décor and furnishings are virtually the same throughout the pub. There is a small dais, presumably for live music albeit not much room for more than a duet. There is a slight maritime theme with shipping forecast areas and an obvious affiliation to the RNLI judging by the posters. One noticeable improvement since my last visit some 18 months ago is the presence of a Harvey's ale (I don't recall any ales on my previous visit) with the quality perfectly drinkable but not great. To the rear is a decked beer garden which at one time offered some fabulous views across London but these have now been partially curtailed by new building developments. We were afforded a decent welcome from the Millwall fan landlord (especially since I we were in Spurs gear and had just beaten West Ham) and overall I didn't find anything particularly unsavoury about the pub although it was a quiet early evening. Overall, a pretty average, no thrills place and not much really somewhere I would go out of the way for but worth popping in if needs arise.
