It is always a pleasure to eat at The Spread Eagle. They are great in every single sense: friendly, warm, approachable. If you like spicy it is definitely your kind of place and the food is brilliant, we have been there with non veggie/vegan friends and they were astonished by textures and flavours. AND the cocktails are insanely good.

It has a back garden for smokers and it is very close to public transport. I love going to there.

Awesome place for a catch up! Food was great as well as the service! They make a lovely old fashioned and the bbq plate was incredible, the “meat” was so well done, it surprised me that it was all vegan!

Really enjoyed it. We had hot wings which were properly tangy and nice and spicey. And a selection of vegan tacos which I really enjoyed. Sort of food most people dont attempt at home which makes it even more enjoyable. Would recommend.

Staff were excellent, attentive and friendly. Food was amazing-those fish tacos, but a little on the pricey side. Also the 30 minute wait for food to be ready is just too long for what really isn't complicated meals.

The food here is absolutely delicious and so much thought and care has gone into each dish. Favourites were the bacon tempeh tacos and the tofish tacos - both excellent in terms of texture and taste. Cocktails are great and service is friendly and helpful. The pub is in a beautiful building and has a friendly, laid back atmosphere.

Wonderfully decorated venue, very friendly staff, decent selection of beer and delicious food. The Mexican inspired vegan kitchen 'Club Mexicana' was on during our visit and their burritos were simply outstanding.

I’ve been a vegetarian for over 30 years and in all that time I’ve not had anything like the ‘ribs’ here. Absolutely amazing...the texture is incredible- meaty and suculant (with a perfect level of BBQ charing). So delicious.
The hot ‘wings’ are great too but are certainly spicy!
Without a doubt this is now one of my favourite restaurants.

We were drawn in by the promise of an entirely vegan menu and weren’t disappointed. Everything we ordered was completely delicious, although a few things from the menu we were keen to try were unavailable. I thought the meal was really good value for money and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Really cool vibe, I’d highly recommend - particularly to vegan foodies!!

Very attentive and friendly waiting staff. Food was good but not as great as the first visit - possibly just depends on what's ordered but previous visit was amazing. menu has been slightly changed since last summer. Would go again but maybe not rush there next time..

Not my first time dining here as I like to keep it as a treat. Delicious Mexican vegan food, very good for sharing. A really friendly, relaxed vibe where everyone is welcome and the punters only drinking all suffer terribly from food envy!

Welcoming spot on Homerton High Street where the cool kids gather to eat, drink and socialise - excellent craft ales and a mindblowing Vegan mexican guest restaurant running the kitchen on Thu-Sun (Club Mexicana). Don't miss the 'To-fish' or sweet potato 'chorizo' tacos or the happy ending vegan ice creem sandwich! To die for!

Welcoming atmosphere, cool crowd ... a place to rest recharge and revive, meet the cool kids, or celebrate with friends

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.
