Have visited this Pub on several occasions and normally the experience has been OK for a place of this kind - but the last visit was not to good, the food was very substandard and of the draught beer was there none. The only saving grace was the staff who remained courteous and as helpful as they could be.

Do Greene king not read theses reviews?? This place is steadily sinking under. It improved vastly following a refit sometime ago, I It would appear the new management have let the place go. I found the same as a previous review, empty glasses and plates, bar staff in very short skirt appeared to be too busy chatting to other staff... More

Visited on a Tuesday evening around 18:30. Parked in the car park so walked through the garden entrance, half of the tables in the garden were covered in empty glasses, one table had an empty plate on too. Got inside and ordered food with a friend of mine. The food was nice though the rare steak was more medium to... More

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 large and was extremely... 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
