A great country pub.

Lovely food, 3 cask ales in excellent condition -Bass, plus 2 guest. A varied menu, good quality pub grub ++++. The beer garden is superb- under the shadow of the village church, with the brook trickling by. A beautiful spot. Great staff. DEFINITELY worth a visit.

Popped in having taken a wrong turn somewhere trying to go the "back way" to Burton. Passed this lovely looking pub owned by one the nicer chains out there. Everything was good, the pub had a very relaxed feel to it, there was a real fire to keep you warm and the staff were very pleasant. We had a fish... More

Went for Sunday lunch with friends, there are not many sitting areas to have a drink only, its mainly set out as a restaurant for eating. The wine was good and a good varied menu. I went for the Roast Turkey which was very lean served with pigs in a blanket and stuffing. The temperature was warm and edible but... More

The place could do with a good clean. The food was just ok. The staff wasn't that friendly and the landlord was more like an ornament. Ok ok ok. Wouldn't go back.....

My family meet up before every Christmas at a restaurant half way between my brothers home and ours. Last year we had a great meal at the Spread Eagle and decided to repeat it again this year (before Xmas 2014). A bad mistake. The meal in 2013 was excellent; this was a bad disappointment. The barman slopped the drinks down... More

Had fish and chips off the 2 course for £11.95 menu on Monday evening. My friend and I are still debating what fish it was. The colour was grey and it was quite slimey, not very nice at all. The batter was very crispy at the ends however the rest of it was slimey and inedible. Chips were frozen in... More

The 'Spread' is a lovely local, always warm and welcoming. So it with sadness that over the past month or so I've been regularly disappointed with the standard of their restaurant. I was especially disappointed last night - I booked an evening meal for two online for 7.30pm on Monday evening requesting their Festive Christmas menu (3 Christmas themed courses... More
