The Eagle, located on Farringdon Road in London, is widely credited as being the original ‘gastropub’. It was pioneering in the food-in-pubs revolution when it opened its doors in 1991, offering the sort of skills, ingredients and dishes only found in the best restaurants in town, within a truly egalitarian and good value pub.
Propeller have just brought The Eagle online for the first time, creating a beautiful digital representation of this legendary pub. The stunning responsive design provides a great visual representation of the interior, the exterior and food. The website also outlines the pubs rich history, featuring an ‘Alumni’ page which focuses on its impressive roster of past-chefs, many of whom have since had a big impact on London’s food industry.
A unique aspect of the pub are its changing daily menus. To accommodate for the freshness and immediacy of The Eagle’s menu, the chef chalks up the changing daily menu on a blackboard 2, sometimes 3 times a day. The Eagle’s website features an Instagram feed which is used to publish the menus as they change.
