EAGLE TAVERN, WITNEY
Proprietor: IAN & ANNETTE PAYNE
Features: Cask Marque and Games
The Eagle Tavern in Witney is a friendly, town centre pub.
Since the Middle Ages, Witney was famous for the manufacturing of blankets using water from the River Windrush which, so the story goes, was the secret of their quality. Over recent years Witney has grown rapidly, yet it still manages to retain its charm as an attractive Cotswold market town.
The Eagle Tavern is close to the market square which lies at the junction of the two main streets called the Buttercross, a medieval marketing and meeting place where women from neighbouring villages gathered to sell such fare as butter and eggs.
