The Eagle

Picture source: K N Stewart


The Eagle was situated at 151 Poplar High Street. The Eagle was established as a pub by 1794, although may have been a pub for very much longer as parts of the building dated from 1535.  In 1815, a brewhouse was established at the rear of the pub.  This developed as the Eagle Brewery, under the ownership of James West & Co., with the Eagle serving as the brewery tap.  The brewery closed in 1908, with the premises becoming a mineral water factory.  The pub survived until 1932 when it was purchased for 600 and converted to flats by the Bethnal Green & East London Housing Association.  The building survived until demolition in 1971.
