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.

Ate there last night. Clearly a very busy evening but it was apparent that the staff were all working hard to get everyone served. Food was delicious and piping hot when it arrived at the table. Well done to all the staff on an extremely busy evening. Look forward to the next visit.

A drab, rainy, first Sunday of the year, and we had a very warm welcome for Sunday Lunch. Not a carvery, but a very good plate of meat. All three of us had the beef etc. which was excellent. If you're starving you could have a plate of beef, lamb& pork, but after the Christmas excesses, perhaps a meal too... More
