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

We visit the Spread every christmas on my dad's birthday , and once again we weren't disappointed with the quality of the food. It was fabulous and the atmosphere was so festive with the log fire and the old oak beams. My favorite place to visit over the christmas period.

We turned up on spec and were pleased to find a table for 3 without waiting. Ordered food and drink without issues. wait for food wasn't bad 20-30 minutes for mains. Staff very good, but probably a little perfunctory if I was being picky. My salt beef was outstanding! I tasted somebodys spicy chicken which was overcooked and dry. If... More

My boyfriend and I have just got back from having Sunday lunch. Very, very disappointing. Where do i start! My boyfriend had calamari for a starter. The batter had congealed & didn't look appetising & didn't taste great. Presentation not great either. I had beer battered mushrooms which were ok. Now to the main. I had chicken & he had... More

Regular pub grub lunch while catching up with a friend. Outdoor seating was our preference as it was a lovely day out and it was lovely to listen to the stream. Nothing to complain about, the burgers we had were both delicious.

Have been to the spread a handful of times over the years, it's in such a beautiful village and has the potential to be outstanding, if only they took notice of these reviews!! We went for Sunday lunch and both had roast pork out in the garden, it was served with the pork, Yorkshire and gravy on the plate, then... More

The pub and garden are great. The pub is full of character and the staff were all very welcoming. Plenty of choice for drinks and, although we didn't eat, the food being served looked very tempting.

We met for a meal with friends at this very pleasant country pub where the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The menu was typical pub fare but of a good standard and very enjoyable. The company was obviously a major contributor to this successful evening, but the food and general ambience certainly helped. The price was reasonable and even better... More

Although the food and service was fine with no real complaints, I just felt that it could be taken to the next level. It's much better than the general,plastic pubs that abound nowadays and I would go back as the food was good without being outstanding. Service again was also fine. The pub itself needs a bit of a refurb... More
