The Eagle Vaults

On the corner of Pump Street stands the Eagle Vaults, a good example of a 1890 city tavern, with 'art-nouveau' tiles and lettering. Until recently it had the best sand-blasted, decorated windows in the City, including one engraved 'Snug Room'.  9Other good windows were shown at the Royal Exchange, Cornmarket and the Beehive, Tallow Hill)

Inside the Eagle Vaults the furniture is the original mahogany with black American cloth seating, and decorative cast-iron tables. The building is older, being of the period of Charles ll. This is a building worth looking again at, for it is only recently that public houses of that style have come to be appreciated.
