New menu a soaring success at The Eagle

When it comes to good munch on Ecclesall Road, you’re increasingly spoilt for choice these days – and you can chalk up new pub classics at The Eagle menu as another soaring success for S11’s food scene.

Joining an already celebrated family of Thornbridge Taps dotted across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, The Eagle on Ecclesall Road has built up a name for its laidback atmosphere and solid craft beer offering (the cocktails aren’t too shabby either!).

Originally it was mostly pub snacks and pizzas for food, which are both still on offer, but the venue has recently launched two revamped menus: a tempting pub classics special filled with hearty fare and an extended traditional Sunday lunch offering which also includes hot roast sarnies.

The venue is a collaboration between Thornbridge Brewery and Brew Kitchen, the latter of which looks after next-door neighbour Graze Inn and the much-loved Cricket Inn – two well-known and respected names amongst the Sheffield foodie community. There’s a much more casual vibe to The Eagle, think more trendy pub hangout than posh meal out, but that doesn’t mean they’ve dropped any standards when it comes to the food.

After popping down to try out the new menu last month, Exposed gorged on the pictured chorizo dough balls drenched in Henderson’s Relish gravy (£4), the insanely good beef short rib cottage pie (£10) and a proper (but fancy) Sheffield fishcake (£10) – for the uninitiated, that’s fish sandwiched between two slices of potato and wrapped in crispy batter. Simple but sumptuous. The portion sizes for the prices were generous, to say the least, and we left with the full, fuzzy and truly satisfied feeling that only a good pub dinner can provide. Suffice to say the tapped Thornbridge beer provided perfect accompaniment when it came to washing it all down…

All of the above washed down in style!

You can pay The Eagle a visit at 315 Ecclesall Road, S11 8NX.
