Great pub, we sat in the socially distanced car park on make do seating as they wait for the rules to relax to let us back in properly.
That being said it was great.
I’d like them to convert that part of the Carpark to a beer garden with hedges and picnic tables. Would be perfect then.

It was lovely to be able to go to the pub again. Andy was brilliant in moving our pre booked table which was undercover and heated to the car park where it was sunny.
The only trouble was the seating arrangement needs some refinement as we were sat on a rough long plank of wood which wasn’t comfortable- however it was novel.

Great food and service - yes it is more expensive than some other local pubs in Darrington however the food offering is in a different league and therefore justifies its cost. The renovation work has transformed the pub from a tired and dreary place .

Fantastic food and service. Sunday lunch was excellent and great value. Roast beef was cooked to perfection and the lamb shank was moist and fell off the bone. There’s a great selection of beers, wine and spirits available along with superb coffee.

This is the second time we have eaten here at our local pub The Spread. The mains and the desert courses were delicious and a little different and better quality than usual pub food. We will definitely be eating here again.

Friendly welcome, pleasant staff, excellent food. We had the venison was perfectly cooked, the aubergine burger was really tasty and the beer battered fish and chips was gorgeous. The sticky toffee pudding was so light and was accompanied by cinder toffee and ice cream which made it a sweet fans delight. Farmers blonde and the IPA were on the money. Keep it up and will try and get a bus load up as I was pleasantly surprised that they had a 20 seater private room for groups.

Very nice meal, everything cooked well, nice and hot. The venison was delicious and very tender. The turkey steak was a bit too rich for one guest but that was a personal opinion. Desserts to die for.

This is our local but was the first time we had eaten there. We went for Sunday lunch and it was delicious. There was a good choice of all 3 courses which was nice because some set menus are restrictive. The food was served promptly and nice and hot. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. I would definitely recommend eating here.

Food was presented nicely and was hot when served. The menu is quite limited and almost every dish had something pickled on it (not good if you don't like pickle). Some of the menu items were expensive for what you get. I chose a steak and asked what steak was on that day. The person I asked said "I think it's sirloin". On arrival it was definately not sirloin as it had a bone in. At a guess I would say it was a rib steak. Although the steak was quite large it was very thin. By preference I would of liked a thicker smaller steak. It was tasty but not quite what I expected when I was told it would be sirloin. I would certainly go back and eat there again but it is far too expensive for basic foods to eat there regularly. Drink prices are extortionate as well. When the pub re opened I had hoped that we would be able to go more often but sadly due to the prices it is only something I would do occasionaly and not a regular thing. The pub is certainly cleaner, brighter and more welcoming than it was but has sadly outpriced itself as my local.

Enjoyed a pleasant evening, early days so room for some improvements, waiting staff need to know the menu better and a few meals were sold out. Hope that The Spread go for strength to strength and look forward to dining there again soon.
