Myself and my husband went for a meal at short notice, I called and the pleasant girl on the telephone said that she would make up another table for us as the restaurant was full. We had starters, main and dessert which was very nice. I would highly recommend the Spread Eagle, nice old fashioned pub with good food.

Visited with 3 others. I ate Llama which was served on one of their 'Hot Rocks' (A very hot metal slab) which allows you to control the cooking of your the meat at the table, and although not totally original - It is an absolutely brilliant idea with fantastic presentation of the food. The menu overall has some really interesting... More

We stayed near the Spread Eagle and popped in for an evening meal. Although very busy they found us a table in the bar area. The extensive menu was hard to choose from with such a variety. The meal arrived swiftly, was excellent and the staff were very pleasant.

The staff and atmosphere of this pub is superb and this coupled with a five page menu makes this a place worth a visit. On a recent visit I had the full rack of ribs while mu wife had just a half rack - she was most disappointed - but only because she had not gone for the full rack.... More

Because last year's venue had dropped in quality my brother and I found this as a potential replacement midway meeting point to catch up and exchange pressies for Christmas. We'd previewed the very extensive menu and without a doubt found more than enough choices for all, especially as his wife is vegetarian. This was a primary consideration and it's still... More

My colleagues and I come here most weeks for a lunchtime drink and snack. Efficient, good value, welcoming. Decor a bit dated, odd perhaps, and generally clientele seem at the high end of the age spectrum. Good place for lunch.

Great food served piping hot and efficiently. They offer lots of exotic meats or plated roasts for the traditionalists. I opted for the Stone cooked Kangaroo steak. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The vegetables were brought separately and were plentiful. About £20 a head seems like very good value. Will go there again!

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).
