The Spread Eagle

The Spread Eagle on Fore Street was reopened in August 2015 by Grain Brewery and has since made its mark on the craft beer scene in Ipswich.

First opened in 1610 – and a Grade II listed building with an enclosed sun-trap garden – the Spread Eagle is only a 5-minute walk from the Waterfront.

With a passion for serving high-quality products in a unique environment, it offers a selection of craft beers, coffees and cocktails. The full selection of cask beers from Grain Brewery are available on rotation; as well as eight keg beers and a fridge full of craft bottles and cans.
