“Overcooked and dried out fish with stale chips”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

I have lived in Boston for nearly seven years now. Ever since I set foot in this town, people have recommended Eagles.

I eventually got around to trying it on Friday. I was walking past at lunch time, so I thought I would buy take-away fish and chips. I wandered in, and asked the chap behind the counter what types of fish were available. I was told the "the only one that is ready is cod." So, I thought I would have to have the cod.

He took a piece of cod out of the warming oven, and some chips, wrapped them up and charged me £4.90. I thought this was a bit high, but didn't say anything as I was trying the best place in town.

The fish was overcooked and dried out. The chips were stale. The only time I have had worse chips was my own earlier attempts.

I shall not be returning.

“Nice fish but dire vegetables”
Reviewed 20 June 2012 via mobile

We chose this as they offered a healthy option, steamed fish, mash and vegetables, in their restaurant. The fish was lovely, but everything else was substandard. The peas were brown and pretty I edible, the sliced green beans were a bright fluorescent green (though tasted nice) and the mash was served like school dinners used to be- three ice cream scoops of lumpy mash with a sprinkling of black bits. The water jug was covered in a residue from the washer, as was my glass. When I took it to the bar it was replaced with one with a lot less residue!! The waitress was friendly and efficient. Final word? I suspect this place gets a good rating for standard fish and chips as a takeaway. I couldn't recommend the healthy option.
