Built 1902 in Edwardian Baroque, the Eagle retains much of its original fittings in a three-roomed layout. The inner door, set in a timber screen, has multiple etched glass panels of floral design. The drinking lobby retains a ceramic dado of mainly red tiles and its original panelled bar counter, with screens in the upper section. A doorway leads to the small parlour on the front right with fixed re-upholstered seating. At the rear right is a small room with modern dado panelling and leatherette benches. A door with multiple etched glass panels of floral design leads to the Vault with re-upholstered original fixed seating.

Built 1902 of red brick with terracotta dressings in an Edwardian baroque style. Above the entrance is a terracotta plaque of an eagle with name EAGLE INN beneath. Now surrounded by industrial units, garage and new apartment blocks and out of sight from the busy bypass that is Trinity Way. It is nicknamed 'Lamp Oil' after John Stone, who owned the pub in the early 1900's and also ran a nearby coal yard where he sold paraffin. The Eagle retains much of its original fittings in a three-roomed layout. Inner lobby has a dado of red tiles. Inner door set in timber screen has multiple etched glass panels of floral design. The drinking lobby retains a ceramic dado of mainly red tiles and its original panelled bar counter, with screens in the upper section.

A doorway leads to the small parlour on the front right with fixed re-upholstered seating, an original wood surround with new tiled fireplace and a good 'Eagle Inn' curved front etched window. At the rear right is a small room and has modern dado panelling and leatherette benches. Door with multi etched glass panels of a floral design leads in to the lino floored Vault with re-upholstered original fixed seating, what looks like the original bar counter (the listed description states 'The bar counter ... has been altered'), another good 'Eagle Inn' curved front etched window, a small Art Nouveau chimney-piece fireplace blocked-up and painted red/yellow, but the bar-back fitting looks modern.
