About The Pub
Dating back to the 16th century, The Eagle is a typical traditional British coaching inn with a not so typical history. This 16th-century coaching inn in Cambridge is best-known for being the spot where Francis Crick and James Watson announced they had discovered the structure of DNA in 1953. Cambridge exudes history and The Eagle is just one in a sea of historic buildings in town. In fact, just across the road from the pub sits St. Bene't's Church, whose tower, which dates back to the 11th century, is said to be the oldest standing structure in Cambridge. We offer a very traditional experience with cask ales and home cooked food very much at the forefront of our pub.
