It was certainly after 1975. I used to live there as my grandparents ran the place before going to The Kings Head and then The Midland Hotel. My memory isnt what it used to be but I was certainly living there in 1979 ish.
 
If anyone has any photos of the Eclipse I would be very grateful. What a place that was  ;D  I remember ShowaddyWaddy and all the top snooker players of the day drinking in there as they knew they wouldnt be bothered by anyone. One of them stayed the night drunk under a table.

The Eclipse closed in 1981, eventually becoming a Phones 4U outlet.
