The Spread Eagle
Good value pub with an excellent choice of food at reasonable prices
I was very disappointed. The waiters advised us on arrival there was many things on the menu that they had already run out of. We decided to stay and my partner ordered filet steak. After we had finished our starters the waiters came back to the table to clear our plates to then tell my partner they had run out of filet steak, and he would have to chose something else off the already limited menu. The fact the waiters let us order our starters ad then eat them to tell us they had run out of filet steak for disgusting. We paid for our starters and left with out our mains. Would not return back.
Great service, nice food, OK drinks
Although one of our favourite pubs, service to night was slow and a lack of attention to what was ordered. That aside we still had a great night and will as normal be back 😀
The restaurant had ran out of roast beef, roast lamb and then when we ordered something else, they’d ran out of this too. We were disappointed as was looking forward to a Sunday roast. However the food we had was good and the service was great.
Four of us had a lovely dinner. Two had the Tavern Chicken, one had prime rib and I had cod. All were excellent except for the rice side dish which was salty and left on the plate. Crystal, our wonderful server, had waited on us before; she is just fantastic. She provides the kind of service that makes the 40 minute drive worthwhile.
A couple area of improvement areas include the wine list, which has gone significantly downhill in recent years. Also the decor, although part of the charm, is in need of refreshing.
All in all a very good dining experience.
Very busy but service still good. Vegetables a bit soggy but other than that, great food for the price.
Very nice meal and good value Valentine's option 3 courses £20
A very enjoyable lunch. The food and wine was excellent as was the service. I have to travel 12 miles to get there but it was well worth it.
We’ve been here hundreds of times, and used to live in the village. Very pretty pub next to the brook with log fires in winter, great choice of drinks and a nice menu. Last night, exceptionally, the service was very slow and very poor. We waited an hour to place an order for dessert, and after chasing three times were then told the chef had gone home. We were given a discount with apologies from the manager, the Spread is usually so much better.
We were seen to our table straight away we had booked it earlier in the week, good waitress all staff very attentive been here quite a few times and always been well pleased thank you.
We eat at the Spread often, but food this time not good
Although my booking was confirmed by yourselves the restaurant was actually fully booked !
