'Spread Eagle' public house
TQ 2574 12/17
A late 19th Century public house with a good interior. It is of 3-storeys
comprising a 4-bay centre flanked by advanced quoined end-pavilions. Red brick
with stone dressings and tiled roof. Above stone stallrisers a glazed ground
floor of leaded lights is framed by a fanciful pilaster order supporting the
fascia. An iron and glass porch projects from the main entrance.
The upper floors carry a Flemish Renaissance-type reticulation of pilasters and
bandcourses, framing the windows and rising to discontinuous cornices. The
2 exterior angles of each end-pavilion carry fanciful stumpy obelisks. The west
pavilion is crowned by a 4-storey Dutch gable with sunflower plaques in moulded
brick. In the interior the saloon bar is backed by a wall of etched mirror-glass
panels with delicate ribbon and foliage motifs, the whole giving a brilliant effect.
The good modern canopy over the counter houses glass panels from a roof light
painted with birds and foliage.
