Tris C left this review about The Eagle Ale House

This place dates from at least the late 19th century and on approach to this backstreet venue, the visitor is confronted with a multitude of aluminium casks stacked up out front in the patio.
The bare boarded interior with a few rugs is just the kind of pub I like, with a good atmosphere up to a point. The colour scheme is a pleasing almost all-over burgundy with a coffered ceiling, white partitions with the gap between picture rail and ceiling filled with pump clips. There are a few knickknacks about the place, such as bottles and eclectic prints. Furniture is mismatched and traditional, two small TVs showed the rugby alongside an irritating IMAX projector screen, sound off with a decent soundtrack on the stereo. Customers were locals of course and mixed in age, but the abiding memory will forever be the landlord, effing away at customers for having removed stools from the bar, before knuckling down to a sarcastic description to a potential customer of available lagers; I’ve never experienced such extraordinary behaviour; the Norman Balon de nos jour?
The ale lineup amounted to a reversed clip, then Windsor & Eton LD20, Surrey Hills Sheer Drop, Redemption Fellowship and Downton New Forest, £2.50 a half and dull, served by a charming barmaid.
This is a fine pub, but the ale selection could be more adventurous, though the sports overload and customer service are a disincentive to undertaking the schlep required to get here, but it’s the best option in the area.

Good looking mid terrace ale house,just off the upmarket Northcote Road,its all wood panelled walls with a dark wooden floor and traditional furniture with the bar to the left side and a substantial beer garden out the back.It has a lived in feel,the flatscreen was showing the Six Nations rugby and the pub was busy. On one side of the bar are a series of keg taps with the beer and cider descriptions on the wall while the six handpumps on the longer side were drawing Surrey Hills Ranmore and Shere Drop (NBSS 4),along with Brew York Viking DNA,Stone Go to IPA and a real cider.
A pub not to be missed when in the area,it's well used by local folk and lively,yet traditional and comfortable.

First return here for some 3 or 4 years,I shouldn't leave it so long next time,the Eagle remains an extremely good "proper boozer" totally unspoilt by the march of time and fashion yet manages to appeal to customers of all ages and alcohol preference,ale drinkers are well catered for across the 8 handpumps and most beer styles were covered in the ever changing selection. Well worth the hike or bus ride up the Northcote Road.Will return soon.
