booking is advisable to guarantee a table. had our usual burger and triple cooked fries. never disappointed here. not a full selection of ales but the bottled beers and wines are an impressive selection. when they serve a wine which should be served chilled they...serve it in a frosted glass, on a summers day when you walk back to the table and the ice is sliding down the glass you know you are getting a top quality service. ( other places I have known serve white wine in glasses still warm from the dishwasher, but never here)More
We popped in here on the off chance last night, 25th July, as we'd arrived in town a little early for our restaurant reservation
We were greeted at the door and asked for our contact details and were then shown to a table where our...drink order was taken. A couple of minutes later our drinks arrived and payment was taken (there was an option to start a tab but we only had time for one).
They've got it really well set up for the Covid restrictions and we very much enjoyed our first visit to a pub in months!
The service is wonderful and the staff are lovely.
It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.More

Many thanks for such kind words. We're glad you enjoyed your visit.
Happened to be in cr0 central with the Mrs and after a few hours we were flagging.....I suggested we head for refreshments in the spreadeagle....slightly disappointed as no red fox but may have just missed it....had a chocolate stout glass of pink for the mrs.......After a while she said let's eat out and I said this does the classic Sunday roast so we settled on a pork and half a roast chicken.both arrived shortly and we were very happy....chicken was indeed half a small roast chicken and mine was a decent slab of pork...great roast spuds and loads of veg....all hot ,well cooked and presented... absolutely solid classic pub fayre.
Finished with a glass of merlot and another pink...all in all a lovely lunch....good service and asked was all ok ? so no issues here this afternoon...typical Fuller's traditional looking pub refurbished from an old bank years ago...More
This was my first visit to The Spread Eagle pub. As a venue for drinks it is fine as it is in a good location not far from the upper end of the High Street. The food wasn't great. I had traditional fish and chips....The fish was overcooked & the batter unpleasant. My dinner partner had the beef burger & chips which looked better.
Would I return? Probably just for drinks, rather than food, but we chose the venue for its convenient location.More
Haven't been in here for many years, like 8 at the very least, hasn't changed much if at all decor wise however the bar staff are spot on, I was served by a barman called Ralph and we had a good chat about fullers beers...as they was selling the vintage ale in there and fullers brew a batch on a yearly basis. Plenty of choice of fullers beers on draught and bottled, nice selection of ciders, reasonable selection of spirits and a lesser selection of lagers but let's face it, why would you want a lager in a decent real ale pub? Drink prices are maybe a little higher than the other establishments nearby but you are paying for the quality of the beer in my opinion. Didn't try the food but looked ove the menu and thought there wasn't much to choose from but what I saw served up looked pretty damn good. Friendly locals/regulars as had a few conversations with random people. I had previously enquired if this place was wheelchair friendly and was told yes, am usually skeptical as have been lied to in the past, however, true to their word there is a wheelchair accessible entrance and just inside is a accessible toilet with a radar key lock which you can ask for at the bar however my partner has her own which saves waiting. Will definitely be heading here again next time I am up.More

Thank you for your time to give us feedback :)
Hopefully we will see you soon!
My husband and I stopped here for a few cheeky beers back in 2017. We remembered the pub fondly and decided to pop in whilst we were visiting LDN again.
Well we was very happy to have popped in. The pub hasn't changed which was...nice to see and the staff as ever were welcoming and a good selection of real ales on tap.
Highly recommend if you enjoyable the ales. We will certainly be visiting again whenever we are back in LDN.More
if you are looking for a swift pint in the heart of the town centre then you could do worse. The Spread Eagle does reasonably prices pub grub and the staff are fairly friendly.
Great place for a quiet lunch if you are looking to...stay out of the way of the lunch time crowd.
Not ideal for hot drinks though, but hot drinks, although they serve coffee, peppermint and if you are very lucky something with ginger.More
