A sisters lunch

My two sisters and I booked a table at 12:00pm. My eldest sister had Lasagne which was served in a dish with side salad - it looked presentable and considering she is pregnant she sure enjoyed it. My other sister had a Chicken Fillet Burger with chips which were to die for. The burger was extremely... read more

I often meet friends at the Spread Eagle but this week it was freezing even though we were sitting near the fire. We couldn't see any radiators. Think it has changed, possibly new management. The staff are always very nice and efficient and it is typical pub food, nothing fancy and it is usually good. We won't be going back... More

No fish and chips or rump steak available I ordered calamari which arrived without its sauce, clearly had been over cooked also. When the sauce... More

Pub seems to have changed hands since last visit which is noticeable from a customer point of view. We went the other night for a bite to eat as soon as we got there we were told to order quickly as kitchen was shutting in 15 mins! We ordered burgers (we weren't expecting a gourmet dining experience!!) the portion was... More

After xmas indulgence, fish and chips really hit the spot. Crispy batter and the fish was cooked to perfection, my complements to the chef, all served with a smile. Will definitely be eating here again.

Severely disappointed with the veggie burger - mushroom and halloumi with blue cheese sauce. The halloumi didn't even add up to be a single slice. When I asked the waitress if there should be more, she said no, but she could get me some more. When she brought over 2 slices, they were stone cold, clearly straight from the fridge.... More
