As this is my first post, I'm hoping that I'm correctly following all the rules. I'm researching the name of the Eagle and Ball pub, I know that there used to be three Eagle and Ball pubs in Birmingham, but now only on remains, being rebuilt as part of the Universities expansion. However, no where else in the Country can I find a pub named the Eagle and Ball. So I'm assuming that the name has something to do with Birmingham, but I've drawn a blank. Can anyone please help and explain what the pub name means or what it is named after.
