The Eagle, Barrow

An interesting site and a client for whom we had already worked for on The Fence Gate Inn at Fence near Burnley – a good operator who has won numerous awards and is well known in the area.

The site had previously been a restaurant but had been shut for some twelve months or so; our client had already decided to extend the property – partly an old stone-built pub – and our brief was to provide a dining area with theatre kitchen , bar and champagne bar. We agreed with the client on a palette of natural materials – light stone floors together with French walnut flooring to the front bar area, limed oak vertical boarding again to front of house with custom built panelling to the rear dining rooms and the champagne bar………comfy furniture, and a lot of individual items sourced and selected by the client himself.

The restaurant caters for some eighty or so covers around the theatre kitchen and the display fridges holding the uncooked steaks for selection – the clients background in butchery demands prime importance being given to the quality of produce and its preparation. Together with the traditional bar to the front of the premises there is a cocktail bat to the rear providing much more of a ‘clubby’ atmosphere.

Drinking, dining – all in a relaxed atmosphere that combines traditional comfort with contemporary styling and quality service – and good food!
