Days Gone By: Memories from the Spread Eagle Pub in 1974
The Spread Eagle on Spread Eagle will hold fond memories for many - but have we pictured you in our gallery?
Situated in Fore Street, the Spread Eagle Pub has long since been a part of its community.
It is recorded that the pub was opened in the 1600s with The Old Bell over Stoke Bridge it also reputedly the oldest pub in Ipswich
The Spread Eagle is the last remaining public house of those which once stood on the four corners of this junction of Fore Street
These pictures, taken at the pub in 1974, show just how popular it was back in its heyday as the many punters enjoyed a night at their local. Can you spot yourself or anyone you know in these pictures from our archives?
In the summer of 2015, it closed for a couple months to be refurbishment and was took over by Grain Brewery to give their wide selection of craft and imported beers on draught in the pub.
