The Eagle & Child
Aquest historic pub d'Oxford és famós, especialment, per ser el punt de reunió de JRR Tolkien (autor d'El Senyor dels Anells) amb els seus colegues escriptors i profesors de la universitat. És un lloc fantastic per fer una cervesa! --------------------------------- This famous pub in Oxford needs almost no presentation.

Regarded as the chief architectural glory of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, the chancel vault is a sublime example of late medieval rib vaulting. It is a Lierne Pendant vault, built by William Orchard around 1500. It is made up of 12 lantern shaped pendants that hang miraculously suspended in mid-air, and tiny ribs of stone, known as 'liernes', that intersect along the centre of the vault creating large eight-pointed star shapes - the stars of heaven.
