The Eagle at Snaresbrook
Wansteads oldest public house & hotel, Winston Churchills local
The Eagle is an old coaching Inn on the A11 on the way to and from London and Newmarket, dating from the early 17th century. Winston Churchill (once MP for Wanstead) drank here. The present building dates from the 18th century.
Originally known as the Spread Eagle and more recently, sadly, as a Toby Carvery.
It's often frequented by jurors and defendents from Snaresbrook court across the road.
The painting is a James Pollard from the early 19th century. One of two he painted of the Eagle.
