The Inklings, an Oxford University literary group that included J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams and many other British authors and academics over the years, held weekly informal lunches at the Eagle and Child pub (also known synonymously as the Bird and Baby) in Oxford, England beginning in 1933. The meetings here lasted until the pub, including the Rabbit Room in the back where they met, was remodeled in the early 1960s forcing them to start meeting at the Lamb & Flag pub across the street.
