Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Ipswich Eagle Tavern

Ipswich Eagle Tavern

closed 1977

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**
