At the Eagle and Child Ramsbottom, we’re all about serving up the finest Lancashire pub grub with fresh local and seasonal ingredients. Our meat comes from the Lancashire countryside in particular the Bowland fells and our fish is supplied fresh from Fleetwood.
We’ve a great reputation for our food having won ‘Best Food Pub’ twice in the Manchester Food and Drink Awards, as well as a host of local and national plaudits.
We’ve gone back to basics and rustled up some of our Grandmas’ favourite classics, alongside refined plates, which we hope will leave you feeling like you’ve been properly fed, without an oversized plate of unnecessary food!
Try our fabulous ‘Double Bomber’ cheese and onion pie served in the old enamel pie tin or the delicious slow braised Bowland Ox cheek! You can also enjoy casual bar snacks in our great look bar and we have a fabulous VEGAN menu too!
Winner of Lancashire Life’s ‘Family Friendly Dining’ venue of 2017, we have a great food offer for kids too and are family friendly until 8pm! After 8pm, we request that older children only (10 years and older) are in the bar and dining areas

FACTS + INFORMATION ABOUT OUR FOOD
- Don’t come if you’re in a rush or please let us know! All food is freshly prepared using local and home grown produce. We are not a fast food restaurant, so please ensure you visit us with enough time to ensure your food can be prepared with love and care! Dishes can take up to 40 minutes during busy periods, but we are more than happy for you to ‘pre-order’ in advance if you are on your lunch hour!
- When it’s gone, it’s gone! Dishes may change without notice due to availability and seasonality. We have additional daily dishes on our specials board. We have a limited number of these and they will sell out during busy periods.
- An intimate and bespoke Sunday Lunch. We have a smaller set menu which is different every week. This is complemented with specials and pub classics available. The full a la carte menu is not available on a Sunday.
- All veg and no meat? We cater for Vegan diners and those with dietary requirements. We have a full Vegan and Vegetarian menu, which we feel is one of the best in the area!
