Also listed at 44-47 Wherstead Rd. (1871) and at Bath St. Back in Victorian times Bath St. used to join Wherstead Rd. rather than stopping at Hawes St. 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.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Mar 1890 states that :

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.
