This is a delightful pub set on the banks of the river. Food is very British and is extremely good. Staff are very friendly and overall good value for money. Suggest booking as the restaurant was very full (Friday lunch)

We travelled out some 25 miles to revisit with my 93 year old Mother in Law as a treat for her. The food was good, as it was last time apart from the warm gingerbread being a little chewy. I'm not sure if this were deliberate or whether it had been microwaved a tad too long. What was disappointing was... More

Me, my wife & son came here last Wednesday for their special £5 for fish, chips & mushy peas night. Yes, £5 for a full chippy tea in a lovely restaurant; I'm sure it's more than that from a local F&C shop. The quality of the food was first class; really well cooked. Make sure you book as the place... More

Popped in here for a meal on a wet Sunday afternoon. Very friendly atmosphere and very comfortable. We all had lovely meals, and will definitely come back

We stopped for a quick bite. My partner had a fishfinger butty and I had a Reuben sandwich both which were excellent. The Bowland Brewery Drunken Duck Ale was very well kept and an excellent pint. Orders taken at the table, which was unusual but welcome

A visit to the Spread Eagle with friends left us unimpressed. The food was very basic. We had chips which were slightly undercooked and hard in the middle. No veg or salad came with the meals. As it is really only a pub restaurant one would not expect to have to order side dishes separately and no one advised us... More

The service has let this pub down for a long time but it just keeps getting worse. It would be so simple to solve by having someone front of house who manages the restaurant properly. We were a party of seven on a Saturday night, to be fair the food was fine but the night was let down by the... More
