Four of us went for a birthday meal. The service was very good, the waitresses and bar staff were really friendly. The food was lovely, and nothing was too much trouble for them, they happily gave us extra gravy when we asked and the chef made sure one of the meals had 'well done' beef. Thank you to all the...

This is a typical pub chain place with simple, printed menus with lots of offers, and friendly, well-trained staff. No surprises here but a great welcome, a bit of banter and some good honest pub grub for a reasonable price.

Going into most pubs now is as similar as town centres, they've both, in the main, lost their individuality. This Greene King pub is no exception..the same old menu, the same old decor. I suppose it's what people now expect, cheap food, promptly served. The food was hot, two meals for £9.99....can't call it interesting or even that tasty...depends what... More

We were welcomed by the blonde waitress and instantly given our choice of table, which was... More

We regularly go to the Spread for lunch. Our favourites are fish & chips, scampi & chips, hunters chicken and ham, egg & chips. There's usually tables available but bookings are taken if you want to make sure of a table. Service is usually very good but if there's a big group in and therefore the kitchen is busy and... More
