The eagle is a christian and heraldic symbol and has been used as a pub sign since the fifteenth century. It is used to decorate church lecterns because it is a symbol of St John the Evangelist. As a national symbol it represents such countries as the USA, Germany or Russia. In 1840 this was the Spon Street brewery. Later it became a wine merchants, known as the BOARD until 1868. It closed in 1929 upon the payment of compensation and the premises became two businesses, Smiths Dining Rooms and the Rapid Boot Service.
