The Spread Eagle is a beautiful pub, set in the chocolate box village of Rolleston on Dove. The building is a piece of living history. Established in 1651 it is one of the oldest buildings in Rolleston. By coming to The Spread Eagle you'll be experiencing a piece of British history and culture as well being able to enjoy our delicious menu and wide selection of cask ales, lagers, ciders, spirits and wines. During the winter, the warmth from our open fires will keep you warm and create an atmosphere which can not be recreated, and in the summer you can sit in our fantastic beer garden. Enjoying a late afternoon drink or an Al fresco meal whilst listening to the river dove trickle by. During weeknights we have our evening set menu which is 2 courses for £11.95, From 5pm. Every Wednesday is also Pie Day at The Spread Eagle, each week we offer a selection of 6 tasty pies served with a medley of vegetables and your choice of potatoes or chips. On Saturday you can treat yourself with our brilliant Steak and Supper menu, a 3 course fillet steak meal for just £25. We also have a children's menu for the little ones in your party as well providing superb Sunday roasts, every Sunday. We're looking forward to seeing you, from everyone at The Spread Eagle.

Excellent food and service, very nice dining areas. A good menu choice with some classics and some more higher ranged. Wednesday is Pie Day with an interesting choice of fillings, veg and potatoes. Only disapointment was the fact there was no curry dish on the menu. Apart from this little niggle we will most definitely visit again.

Decent pub food with not too many frills,done well in a nice location. Establishment is set up for food only customers, not many places to sit for a drink only unless the weather is good & you can sit outside. Found the service a little slow, but it was quite busy.

Went on a Saturday night, there was a set 3 course steak menu option available which we both chose to eat from. Food came out hot & service was fast. The steak was cooked well & we both enjoyed our meals. I recommend the chocolate brownie for dessert, it was lovely! Would happily return for a nice simple pub meal.
