We stayed here for a wedding recently and really enjoyed it. The location is great, our room looked out on the river which was lovely to wake up to in the morning. Ample free car parking opposite and not difficult to find. Our friends had their wedding reception here and the food served was lovely - well presented and tasty.... More

Several of us had lunch here, following a hike. Our leader had booked a table for us which welcomed us on our arrival. We all decided on the two course meal. I had Brie in breadcrumbs with a delicious chutney, several tiny pickled onions and a frond of greenery, all of which was absolutely delicious! I followed with the fish... More

My wife and I have been dining at the Spread Eagle for a good many years, but this is only the second time that we have been back since its ownership changed a number of years ago. The style and decor have changed quite a bit, but we still like the place very much, as well as the peaceful setting... More

lovely menu, had pub classics and something with a difference. I chose to have the rib eye with a stilton and spring onion sauce, I forgot to ask for the sauce separate as I don't like stilton, but so wanted a rib eye steak. Well I have to say this was a meal to die for, my daughter and her... More

Early bird evening menu turned into more of a night owl menu because of the considerable wait between courses. The lady proprietor was clearly very busy but retained her sang-froid and courtesy throughout. The younger members of staff, whilst totally charming, did not, however, seem terribly well-marshalled and not always sure of what they were doing. Food and drink: excellent,... More

We have visited 'The Spread" many times and always found the food quality, quantity and service to be very acceptable considering the number of people in the restaurant at the time. This lunchtime was even more popular as everyone appeared to enjoy the added attraction of the jazz band. I consider the venue to be one of the best in... More

Food and service great so much to choose from good wine list too but in recent hot weather no air conditioning meant we just wanted to eat and run.You couldn't breathe in there something to consider if you're booking for summer evening.Having said that it wouldn't stop me going back
