The Eagle and Child, also known as "Bird and Brat" and "Bird and Baby", was the pub where the Inklings would meet on Tuesday mornings.

In the back room, there is a small plaque on the wall commemorating The Inklings meetings.

In April 2006, British Consumer Campaign "The Campaign for Real Ale" (CaMRA) announced that they would be placing commemorative plaques outside British pubs of historical or cultural significance. In the initial list of 14 proposed plaques, "The Eagle and Child" was named.

It is referenced to in The Lord of the Rings Online as the Bird and Baby Inn.
