The Spreadeagle squeezed us in after a morning email for a 12 noon meal. It was a family affair - just us and my aunt, who didn't like Indian food, so we chose the Spread instead of the Dil Raj (we've often been to the Spread over the years for famliy meals and business lunches and always happy there). We... More

Table for 15 booked for a family celebration and everything went very well. Good service and pleasant food. The dining area is a trifle small which means it can be noisy at times so if you have anybody in your party who has hearing difficulties make sure they get an appropriate seat around your table. Total bill (including tip and... More

Busy atmosphere and plenty of laughter, the food was good and we had goodly portions, service was also good considering the numbers in our party, 17 and the numbers of tables in action.

Visited here for supper, with a dog owner. We were given a warm welcome by the bar staff. My friend's dog is very well behaved, but some of the other humans did not keep their dogs very well controlled. I had spare ribs which were tender enough but I did not like the sauce in which they were cooked. It... More

Fun eating the 'hot rock' dishes here where you choose from a side variety of meats of fish, including exotics like zebra and kangaroo and then cook it yourself on the hot rock. Also on the menu more usual dishes but a big choice. Even the light bites are large. The atmosphere is good and always a friendly buzz of... More
