The Eagle is located just off Stokes Road in Gosport where there is a niche shopping area outside of the high street with small shops and services. Gosport is situated on a peninsula on the western side of Portsmouth Harbour, opposite the city of Portsmouth, to which it is linked by the Gosport Ferry. The pub is nestled in a densely populated residential location and is located less than a five minute walk from Stokes Road.

Pub Layout

The pub boasts a central bar servery with surrounding trading space, housing a pool table and a fruit machine alongside low level tables and chairs. We have recently completed a full internal and external refurbishment scheme at the site which includes sympathetic and cosy upgrades to the trade areas, new toilets and a full kitchen upgrade. The pub benefits from a rear patio garden which was also included in the refurbishment and is a sun trap in the summer months with beach huts, heating and festoon lighting. We have also upgraded the signage, decorations and lighting to the front exterior of the property.

The pub currently has a balanced sales mix, providing a good food income from the newly invested catering kitchen and a full range of premium draught products, wines, spirits and minerals.  It has several events weekly including a darts team, pool team, quiz night and poker night. The pub also offers live music on Saturdays with a meat raffle on a Sunday.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation includes four double bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room. The dining room and trade kitchen are on the ground floor giving access directly into the trade garden. The pub also has separate entry into the private accommodation avoiding all trade areas.
