About The Eaglet
The Eaglet is owned by Michael Jameson, who also owns Jamesons Irish Bar and Shandon Bells Irish Pub in Villamartin Plaza, Orihuela Costa, Spain.
Michael purchased The Eaglet in 2016, and the pub is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment, which will help to confirm our status as the premier entertainment pub in the area.
The Eaglet is the top pub in the area for Arsenal home games. We are just a five minute walk from The Emirates Stadium, and the pub is always buzzing on a matchday, both before and after the game.
One of the only "old school" football pubs left in the area, along with live sports shown on our two 100" HD screens, make The Eaglet the only place for your pre or post match pint!
Following The Arsenal!
A large number of our loyal matchday customers follow The Arsenal all over the world, which adds to the friendly and vibrant atmosphere for every Arsenal home game.
The Story of Michael Jameson & The Eaglet
Michael is a proud Roscommon man, born in London in the Whittington Hospital in Archway, the only child of Myles & Maureen Jameson.
Myles was a well known local character in the North London area "back in the day", as well as a respected racehorse owner, starting off with his first horse Milnes Way which he owned with good friend Tommy Milne, who was also Michael's first employer at Mabel's Tavern when he came back to London to go to university. But Myles had his most success with That Man Again, who held the course record for 14 years at Haydock.
Myles passed away in 2010, and Michael had to go to Spain full time to run Jameson's Bar, which he had bought for his father in 2006 from Tommy Campbell, with the deal actually being done in The Shannon Bells, which Michael also now owns.
While holidaying in London from Spain in March 2016, Michael met in Wood Green, North London with his good friend Mark Flynn (https://www.buildflynn.com/) who was poorly at the time, and while flicking through the Morning Advertiser he happened to notice in the for sale section that The Eaglet pub was up for sale.
After leaving Wood Green, Michael called into The Eaglet, to find that the owner, Roger Lee was in the pub at the time, and Michael provisionally did the deal for the pub there and then.
The plan was originally to buy the pub with another friend, Aaron Gaughan, but Aaron decided to concentrate on his building business, Gaughan Building & Property Services, that was in its infancy at the time, but is now flourishing.
So Michael ended up owning The Eaglet, and despite not immediately realising the extent of the commercial refurbishment needed on a Victorian London pub, as well as being let down by staff at his bars in Spain, he is fortunately now in a position to be able to fulfil his dream and vision for The Eaglet.
