Charming, Little, Tasty

The Spread Eagle is a nice little pub in Abingdon that we visited after a day at Millets Farm for dinner. It was filled with charm, the staff were friendly, and we had a delicious roast. While it's not the most glamorous pub I have to say I don't expect that in a pub, and this had great service... read more

Back in the Abingdon area again this year and have visited twice, for dinner and lunch. Both meals were very good and the service is always great. Beware if you have the Mountainous Minted Lamb - it is! We were 3 for dinner and 7 for lunch and everyone enjoyed their meals. The desserts are wonderful also and not too... More

Pleasant staff, warm atmosphere, excellent service and amazing food! I ate at this pub twice in March 2015, each time with advance booking. The only shame is that the last order must be before 20:00. Highly recommended!

Having been to this pub on several occasions over the years I have been more disappointed over the past few months. The food has gone downhill. On one occasion having ordered desert I found a piece of plastic in the cream but I did not complain. Another time the garlic bread starter looked as if a huge chunk of the... More

In Abingdon for a business meeting and was taken to this pub for lunch. Wonderful choice of food. Very tempted to try the "hot stone" with the vast variety of meats it had to go with it. What I really liked was the "lite bite" options which were perfect for a lunch time business lunch. Not too heavy and not... More

Ok so this is not the most glamorous of pubs and it's certainly not a gastropub but it definitely has lots to offer. If you just fancy a big simple pub dinner, this is the place to go. Loads on the menu, and all tastes homemade. I also like that they offer sone of their mains as a smaller portion.... More

Not sure where all the good reviews are coming from. Large portions and that's about it. Low quality ingredients, over cooked veg and very very pricey dishes. Needs a make over, furniture falling apart! Service was OK but not attentive, much better places to eat in the locality.
