Great vegan food! It was a special BBQ night so the menu was limited but what had was super tasty and if you ever feel like you’re missing meat the BBQ ribs couldn’t get any closer tasting.

We came back to The Spread Eagle to give it a second chance after our first visit was ruined by poor customer service. That time we waited for a really long time for food to be served and this time we waited 40 minutes just to receive our bill! We saw the staff who said she’d bring over the bill sat at the bar with an aperol spritz! The service is really poor here.
On top of this the price of the food was so overpriced. We don’t think it’s justified to charge the prices for such small portions just because it’s vegan food, were both vegan and eat at vegan places all around London and this is the most overpriced by far! it’s tasty food but the portion sizes are too small, especially for street food.

Unbelievably brilliant vegan 'ribs' - better than the real thing. We walked home having the 'how the f**k is that possible?' conversation. This is THE perfect place to go whether you're vegan or not. Great value and great service too.

had a lovely time at The Spread Eagle on Sunday evening. went with couple of friends. it's a cosy gastro pub with a vibrant atmosphere. the service was excellent. had prosecco, which was lovely. the rest had gin with ginger beer which they enjoyed immensely.
for starters had tortilla chips with salsa and guacamole and for mains had tacos. all was good.
thank you Cherry and your team.

The food was incredible (as ever). Considering it was Cinco De Mayo and a Bank Holiday the atmosphere was pretty flat and service a little slow. Will be back- always pleasant.

The food was fresh and delicious with the garnishes springing the food to jaw dropping deliousness. The seitan burger was not cooked through, but edible. The loaded Nachos and the Tofish were a sheer delight. The chicken was underseasoned in both the seitan and the panko crust. We shared a cheesecake that tasted more like banana bread/ bread pudding, but it was still good. This is by far the best vegan restaurant food in London so far! It was way expensive at £80 for 2 for lunch!

I love this place - the decor, the atmosphere, the food, the service. As a vegan it's great to be able to go to a pub that is exclusively vegan, there're no wondering if anything has animal bits in in.

The food portion size was bit smaller than I had expected but other than that it was first class. I shall be going again for sure.

Super fun time for my birthday brunch, and they put a candle on my dessert which was sweet! I thought the food was pretty spicy for my taste to be honest, but all very indulgent.

The pub is well decorated but the bar stools are massively uncomfortable, so we'd definitely recommend booking a table! They definitely chose style over function there... We both had three tacos for £10 and they were tasty, and the hot wings were great. Also liked the flavours in the baked horchata cheesecake. Overall, not the most exciting vegan food I've ever had but everything was executed to a decent standard.

What I love is that everything’s vegan, it’s dog friendly and some of the food is delicious!
What I didn’t like is that it smells, the tables are packed, the lighting is really dim and the nachos were cold, small and far too overpriced.
So much potential though...

Fun vegan take on Tex-Mex and Southern food (Chicken and waffles, anyone?)

Wife loved the Huevos Rancheros, I liked my burrito taste-wise, but potatoes were misplaces in there, could have done with more rice or beans, maybe some crunchy peppers. The fry-up was fun to try once, but nothing special (there's no vegan substitute to bacon and eggs, just stop trying). The winner must have been the chicken&waffle with syrup. Great texture, great taste, great syrup. Well done

Nothing negative to add for service. They tolerated us and our three loud kids (same as everyone else in the restaurant).
