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

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

We stayed at the Spread Eagle for dinner, bed and breakfast. We booked through Late rooms and were told that check in was 2pm. We arrived early to check in at the bar, at 1.45pm - no check in desk - but were told by a young man who was serving that we had to wait till 3pm. His concept... More

Bad news I'm sorry to report and the team seem to have done nothing since last time we went in late 2013. Last year around October we came with friends and had bad service from a very young team without any leadership, slow and neglectful service and all evening. We had a call from the management to apologise and they... More

what a shame you felt the need to put this on trip advisor after explaining all of the above to a member of staff. from the moment you walked in and weren't served immediately (due to other people being served at the bar by the two bar staff and myself) you seemed very cross and were quite rude to me,...

Went here for a meal with my wife after having a drink in the afternoon as the menu loooked appetising. Good selection of ale and reasonable selection of whisky, prices not too bad, nicely decorated with a good atmosphere and nice staff. Food was nice and as described, plenty of choice. Would recommend
