“Leisurely Lunch”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Called in today for lunch, which was great, & even though we arrived after 2pm they were happy to be flexible & we were told if we could order in the next few minutes the whole menu would be available. This is one of our regular visits & as usual the food & service were great.We never go expecting fast service but recognise good food takes time.

“Great value lunch on a rainy winter day”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We booked for lunch on a rainy December day. Three menus to choose from. We went for the 3 course Early bird one which included a glass of wine and was excellent value. The food was good and just the right portion size. Although it was raining we had a lovely view of the Ribble in full flow from the window of our table. It would be great for lunch and a gentle walk in the surrounding countryside in the warmer months.

“Unhappy diner”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

A group of ten of us went for a Christmas meal on Monday night . Food was very good . The service was ok . We were given the wine list but then had to go to the bar to order. At just before 11pm the waiter walked past our table and said rather sarcasticlally I was just making sure you had not gone to sleep , then looked at his watch and said we do bed and breakfast you know. It made us feel very uncomfortable. Our family go quite often but this has put us off

Dear Gillian

Thank you for taking the time to place a review with TA, I have to say I am somewhat dismayed & surprised that the light hearted banter we seemed to be having was taken the wrong way! On the night it appeared to me and my colleagues that no offence had been taken?

On the note of service I will certainly look into your pointers raised and pass it on to our team so that we can aim to do better next time! I am truly sorry if offence was made and do hope that you will come to the Spread Eagle once again for some of our excellent food, ambiance and friendly cheerful service. And I promise no puns about the time!

“Food Excellent - Hope you're not in a rush !!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Me and my wife have dined here on several occassions. On Saturday we'd booked for 8.30pm, we arrived at 8.20pm got a drink and were told our table was just being prepared. at 8.45pm another couple came in to the bar and were taken straight into the restaurant, we were still waiting !! 5 mins later my wife asked if our table was ready upon which we were taken through. After taking our order we were still waiting for food at 9.15pm, I cancelled our starters and said we'd just have a main course. At 9.35pm our food arrived !! The food was excellent, over an hour to get some was ridiculous.
The manager tried to make it they were very busy etc., well I'm sorry if you can't handle the customers don't take the bookings !!
