In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

last owner/operator: Tolly Cobbold

67 Wherstead Rd

grid reference TM 164 434

The Eagle has also been listed at 44-47 Wherstead Road (1871) and at Bath Street. Back in Victorian times Bath Street used to join Wherstead Rd. rather than stopping at Hawes Street as it does now.

Originally only licensed as a beerhouse, according to the Ipswich licensing records, the pub got its full license on March 28th 1960.

Today the building is used as a café.

The landlord of the Eagle tavern, Wherstead road, applied for permission to open at 5 o'clock am for the purposes of supplying coffee to the men employed at the Waterside Works. Permission granted.Ipswich Journal, March 1890**
