Better than a plastic palace

After an awful experience in Chester the night before, in probably the worst hotel I have stopped in for ages, it was so nice to relax in a cosy village pub with good rooms, good food and good beer.

The staff are excellent, and could not be more helpful....................I hope I get the chance to stay again. Beware plastic palaces - go to a traditional Inn like this.

The Eagle Tavern at Little Coxwell

We felt the bathroom was too small and the shower flooded the floor if you used it and went hot/cold.

The power points were behind a cabinet with the tea facilities on top and nowhere near the mirrors in the room. This meant having to have the cable for my hairdryer passing through the cups. The kettle had, had some water left in it and was discoloured on one side. The staff were very friendly and professional and the food is superb and well worth staying for.

Great place for good price

The room was exceptionally nice, as is the premises as a whole.

This is the second time we have stayed, and will return again when we next visit friends in Faringdon. Very minor gripe about sound proofing in the rooms as we could hear what was going on outside, and the plumbing was noisy in the morning when the adjoining room took a shower, but these are really very small things. The menu for dinner looked amazing, although we didn't eat anything other than breakfast, which was lovely.

The hospitality shown was outstanding.

Nothing was too much effort . The only reason I have given the room a lower mark was because its due an upgrade as a bit tired.....but clean,well stocked,warm and cosy. The food Marcel the chef produces is fantastic . ... We will be going there again.

Superb Food, Wonderful Staff

I will definatly be returning next time im working out west and need a stop-over half way.

Food was a delight, and the staff were superb. Dinner is not cheap, but when you add the Nights stay, Breakfast and Dinner all in for aprox £70, its a bargain.

Not a Pub but an excellent place to stay and eat

The Eagle Tavern is a lovely place and has clearly been very tastefully modernised and furnished with all of the small but important things in place.

It is clear that the owners have and are putting a great deal of love, effort and money into the place and they deserve to be rewarded.

The Eagle provides a very high standard of care, food and comfort for a very inexpensive rate and in a quiet but conveniently situated village location. However, the Eagle is not any more a Pub in any sense of the word, it is a restaurant with accommodation and I prefer a pub in the more traditional sense with a community.

Trying Hard but not Quite Delivering....

My overwhelming sensation upon leaving the Eagle was of an opportunity missed.

The staff were all very pleasant, personable and friendly. The room was comfortable without sending either of us into raptures. There were several little niggles; the flex for the hairdryer supplied in the room only reached from the plug socket to the mirror on the wall if the room courtesy tray was dismantled and moved; the kettle had a poory fitting lid which emitted a scalding jet of steam as one attempted to pour the water out and the television was a small screen that could not be watched from the bed by anyone more miopic than me. Mine Host is a chef with aspirations to win rosettes and stars and promises a fusion of Anglo/Central European food. Sadly the meal thyat we were served failed to live up to the hype. Any ambiance in the dining room was washed out by a central pendant light and five wall mounted light fittings, we had been seated for almost ten minutes before I realised that we had a lit candle on the table. The starters were fair and the mushroom souffle/omelette was very flavoursome; the rest of the meal was bland and only memorable for how it failed to deliver. My main course was stuffed chicken served with a sauteed onion slice, two carrot strips, a small serving of tasteless german pasta and a bechamel sauce, my wife was served with three fishcakes that had a fleeting taste of fish. For dessert my wife was served a deconstructed lemon meringue complete with flavoured "snow" and mint droplets. The whole meal hinted at lemon meringue flavour but failed to deliver more. My dessert was the cheeseboard, which consisted of four crackers from a packet (at a cost of £2 each) and three slivers of cheese; I swear that one of the cheddar slices was so thin as to be almost see-through.

I may be accused of being a philistine, but this was not my idea of fine dining.
