5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Atmospheric, great food, cask bears, wonderful selection and in beautiful countryside.
They have a wide choice, varied menu’s and excellent service. Great place to go after a walk or drive around the Ribble Valley or Pendle Hill.

This Spread Eagle is the only place our children will actually want to dine out with us!! Fabulous food and staff. We eat mainly in the bar area, however, the restaurant is beautiful with views over the River Ribble. When we have visitors we always have a trip to The Spread if only for a few drinks. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly. Excellent!

Attended a friends sons wedding, the venue was lovely.. very pretty , lovely decorations etc. The bedrooms are delightful, nicely furnished, tea coffee etc.. you can even get fresh milk from a fridge situated outside one of their bedrooms.. and they also have lovely bathrobes and HOT water .. the only downside was even though the food at the reception was delicious it was running at least 30 -40 mins. late.. the children were served their main course when the adults were served their soup !!! the mains for the adults took an age to be served.. appeared to be no organisation e.g.. not staff delegated to specific tables ..therefore they wandered about with a couple of plates looking for people with no food !! so it appeared they had not enough staff. but saying all that the staff were brilliant ..happy smiling polite & helpful .. and yes even so we would stay there again !!

Room Tip: they only have about 7 or 8 bedrooms . some smaller ones up to family ones . all lovely so you shoul...

Thank you for taking the time to come and write a review about your recent experience with us.

I'm disappointed you weren't happy with the serving of the children's meals with the soups but this is what your Bride and Groom requested for their day.

I am sorry that you weren't happy with the order in which the staff cleared the tables, but we feel its better to all go around and clear per table rather than delegate staff to a table. We take the food out per table and clear in the same manner. A member of staff is always told to wander after taking the food out and clearing the tables to make sure nothing has been missed.

Kind Regards
Natalie & Greig

Our family of 6 adults and a 5 year old child stayed for 2 nights to attend a family wedding. The rooms were well equipped and the beds comfortable. The child's z bed was ok but the mattress was very thin. The small double was ok but was near to the extractor for the kitchen . Our lovely room was room 5 overlooking the river. Overall we were very well looked after, with fresh milk and bottles of water to help ourselves to. We ate 2 breakfasts, a light lunch and an evening meal. The food was very tasty but as other people have stated the service can be quite slow between the drinks and taking the orders for main meals. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even giving our granddaughter a loaf of bread to feed the resident ducks by the river. We would certainly stay at the hotel again if we were in the area.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the river .

Firstly thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit. I am really disappointed you had a few issues with one of your rooms. The extractor fan was a problem we were aware of and one we have dealt with; as the room has a air conditioning unit. Your comment about the z bed has been taken on board; feedback is always welcome and is used to help us improve.

Thank you and we hope we do see you again.

We came here for the Sunday lunch and had to wait quite a while as it was soooo busy....I think they had had a wedding but we had a drink and waited for the meal. Both ordered the roast beef, but to be honest we probably won't order it again on a busy day.I wanted mine pink and it arrived very rare, my husband wanted his well done and it arrived pink! Yorkshire pudding however, was really good!
Although we've been several times before, this time we were disappointed. The location was great as usual and the staff are friendly and efficient. We've always just had lunch or evening meal here, never actually stayed for the B&B so it could be a different experience altogether. Don't think we'll order the beef again but will return.

Room Tip: Only came for Sunday lunch

We have stayed here a number of times and always had a great time and this time was no exception. We arrived earlier than the check in time but our rooms were ready. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the meal and service were excellent. All the staff are young but very professional and made our stay perfect from start to finish. Thank you.

Booked a table for 1pm lunch with our friends.Arrived 12 45,ordered drinks at the bar and were shown to our table straight away.Menus were supplied and our orders taken.Lengthy wait for our starters then a very lengthy wait for our main courses(liver and fish pie ok but the other two had the haddock and chips and were very disappointed).Too much hard batter and not enough fish and frozen chips.An even lengthier wait for a dessert menu and the wait was so long for the desserts to arrive we thought we would still be there when they began serving their evening meals!Staff not over friendly either.All in all a very mediocre experience.Won't be dashing back!
