The Eagle (RAF bar) Cambridge Reviews
Cambridge-Must see Feb 11, 2014
The Eagle is a bar in the centre of Cambridge that is steeped in history. It is known by many of the locals as a great pub.
The Eagle is known for the being the local of the famous Watson and Crich when they discovered the double-helix structure of DNA. It's also famous for being the favourite boozer to the Royal Airforce fighter pilots during the second world war. They used to congregate there and graffiti the roof by holding a burning candle up to it so it left sooty residue (still visible today). One of the artworks is a crude drawing of a naked woman, in which the anatomy is heavily skewed (we looked but couldn't find this particular one).
They have a beer called DNA to celebrate the fame of the pub.
The food is very good (maybe except the BLT sandwich) and reasonably priced.
It's definitely worth having a drink here.
