The Eagle and Child, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire
THE EAGLE AND CHILDA truly historic pub - the first record of these licensed premises shows that an inn has existed on this site since 1492, with the present property dating back to 1820.
The name comes from a wealthy chap's fathering of an illegitimate child, him leaving it for adoption under a tree with a bird's nest in it. It used to be known as the bird and bastard until the current name was deemed more suitable for modern times.
It officially celebrates a birthday on the 23rd April when the reputed birth of the illegitimate child took place.
