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

Our second visit to the Spread Eagle in Rolleston. We were disappointed with the food the first time, but thought we'd give them a second chance...... The Spread was equally as diabolical. So a Sunday dinner, priced at £21.50 for two, a little dearer than other places, and not a carvery. So a platter comes out with 2 slices of... 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

If you accept that this is a pub and in no way a restaurant, then you should not be disappointed. Visiting on Pie Wednesday I tried the steak and kidney pudding with a suet pastry. It looked very inviting (which is more than can be said for the prawn cocktail) but was bland, with yesterday's warmed up potatoes. My colleague... More
