NAME GOLDEN EAGLE INN
ALTERNATIVE NAMES GOLDEN EAGLE HOTEL
ADDRESS 178 FOLESHILL ROAD
ALTERNATIVE ADDRESSES EAGLE STREET
Was this pub named from Eagle Street or was it the other way round?

In 1903 the license of the Fox Inn, Cook Street, was transfered to the Golden Eagle, Foleshill Road, so some changes must have taken place at that date, especially as that is the earliest date I have for the pub. In 1909 this pub was purchased by Phillips and Marriott. Between 1931 and 1938 it advertised 'Bass's noted Burton ales, Guiness's stouts, choice wines and spirits'.

In 1982 it was called 'a busy local with a popular landlord' but by 2011 it had closed and become a medical centre.
Known Licensees are;
1903 David Gamble
1903 William Smith
1904 Freserick John Hibbell
1905 - 1913 Edwin Ashby
1919 - 1940 Albert James Nicks
1952 - 1960 William McCleary (see also Rose and Crown, Hall Green 1960 onwards)
