- The traditional-looking Eagle and Child pub is famously known as the venue where Tolkien, Lewis Carroll and C.S.Lewis hung out and talked about elves. The front part of the pub features stained-wood panelling and rickety furniture. There's a long middle section which feels a bit like a college bar and at the end is an enclosed outdoor section which has heavy iron furniture. It can have a quiet, even studious atmosphere on some weekday nights, and is more like a pre-club bar, noisy and lively on the weekends. During the day, it's a delightful place to read the paper and enjoy a pint. With its sequestered nooks at the front, it can also be a good spot for a tryst.
