The Eagle & Serpent public house at Kinlet
The Eagle & Serpent public house at Kinlet
The pub name derives from the Aesop's Fable (Wherein an eagle swooped down on a snake seizing it in his talons intending to carry it off. But the
snake or serpent coiled around the eagle resulting in a life-and-death struggle between the two. A man, who was a witness of the encounter, came to the assistance of the eagle, succeeded in freeing him from the serpent and
enabling him to escape. In revenge the serpent spat some of his
poison into the man's drinking-horn. Heated with his exertions, the
man was about to slake his thirst with a draught from the horn, when
the eagle knocked it out of his hand, spilling its contents upon
the ground. The moral of the tale is: "One good turn deserves another.")

The eagle and serpent are also the national emblem of Mexico.
