We were staying in the area and found the Spread Eagle on the Internet and booked a table. We had a warm welcome upon arrival, lovely table allocated and very attentive service. Menu was very comprehensive, but an additional vegetarian choice would have been nice. Food came quickly and there was plenty of it. We chose the mini puddings with... More

The menu at this pub doesn't really cater for the fussy diner, my fiancé is quite particular in what she eats and she struggled with the menu here, that said, it's a lovely village pub and has a nice feel about the place.....

Food is a joke but it's nice outside in the sun if you fancy a drink or 2 I only visit for a quick drink (none alcoholic of through the day) because in general it's a nice pub but don't bother eating there, go to the jinnie

Hi Terri S, Having read your review and your other two reviews posted on the same day at the other two pubs in the village, I have taken it as a personal attack to the business as comments such as "food is a joke", "don't bother eating here", are inappropriate when clearly we have a large majority of our reviews...

Stopped off for lunch on the way home,you would think something as simple as a chicken BLT and fish fingers sandwich was hard to get wrong but they managed to do just that. The fish fingers sandwich was oozing grease and the chicken BLT hardly any bacon and even less chicken,safe to say we will NEVER go back

We visited this charming and friendly local pub for dinner. Our drinks and menu arrived promptly and the service continued in the same manner all evening, timely, attentive and friendly. My partner had the prawn & lobster cocktail starter with rustic bread - it was very good. My smoked duck breast with blackcurrant curd, orange segments and mini summer puddings... More

The Spread Eagle is a beautiful pub, set in the chocolate box village of Rolleston on Dove. The building is a piece of living history. Established in 1651 it is one of the oldest buildings in Rolleston. By coming to The Spread Eagle you'll be experiencing a piece of British history and culture as well being able to enjoy our delicious menu and wide selection of cask ales, lagers, ciders, spirits and wines.

During the winter, the warmth from our open fires will keep you warm and create an atmosphere which can not be recreated, and in the summer you can sit in our fantastic beer garden. Enjoying a late afternoon drink or an Al fresco meal whilst listening to the river dove trickle by.

During weeknights we have our evening set menu which is 2 courses for £11.95, From 5pm. Every Wednesday is also Pie Day at The Spread Eagle, each week we offer a selection of 6 tasty pies served with a medley of vegetables and your choice of potatoes or chips. On Saturday you can treat yourself with our brilliant Steak and Supper menu, a 3 course fillet steak meal for just £25.
We also have a children's menu for the little ones in your party as well providing superb Sunday roasts, every Sunday.

We're looking forward to seeing you, from everyone at The Spread Eagle.
