Good vegan food, esp the tofish taco! Would totally believe that it was real fish! Relaxed friendly vibe, speedy service with a smile! Nice Christmas vibes and able to chat comfortably! Nice Puriety Session IPA on draught.

Very original, delicious food with lots of different flavours in each mouthful and a really nice vibe to the play and friendly service. Came here with my wife and daughter for her birthday and we loved it completely.

Really nice pub but wouldn’t go here again for food. Honestly the worst vegan food I’ve ever had. The nachos were greasy, the guacamole was tasteless and they didn’t have a few things off their menu so choice was limited. The service was friendly though and the pub had a nice ambiance. Would go again for drinks but definitely not food. I really liked that the pub has a pool table. We have come home and ordered take away as couldn’t eat the food! For a night out having drinks and games of pool, it’s a good pub.

Amazing food and cocktails! My sister and I went for brunch and we really enjoyed everything we ordered: chickn and waffles, big breakfast burrito and hot wings. So good! Will definitely come back

Sadly the nachos were served cold and we were a bit forgotten about at our table towards the back. All our food came out spread out so we were eating at different times. This was a shame because I love the venue and atmosphere. Sitting next to the speaker meant conversation was a bit tricky, and our table was really crammed into a corner despite us having 4 people - other tables with just 2 people had more space.

Absolutely banging! When we first arrived for our reservation at 3.30 on a winter Sunday, the place was packed and we couldn’t see any tables. Asked at the bar and were whisked over to a sturdy wooden table. All the staff whizzed around and were incredibly helpful and funny. The food was divine - crunchy zingy tacos, vegan burger, spicy sauce veg, crispy potatoes, vegan ice cream sandwich... plus great beers on draught. I wouldn’t have changed a thing, I was so impressed that I booked a big party there in April. This place is great not just because it’s vegan - but the fact it’s vegan is a big plus.

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..
