We had a fabulous spa break, it was really relaxing and enjoyable. Everything about the place was delightful. Food, service and the treatments were all top notch. As an old building, it's not the warmest, but the large log fires work well.

We went to the Spread Eagle Hotel for afternoon tea to celebrate our anniversary. We had often visited for lunch and tea and was always impressed with the food and service. We arrived on time and were seated on two rickety dining room chairs. We complained and were seated on a more comfy sofa. We waited 10 minutes before our order was taken and the tea arrived 10 minutes later but we waited a further 15 minutes for the food to arrive. The sandwiches and scones were very good but the cakes were inedible. I expected cakes of a patisserie standard but were given two mince tarts which looked overdone and I couldn't get my knife through them, so they were left. The second cake selection were two chocolate slices which were wet, not damp, but wet They were also left and the lemon drizzle cake, which didn't taste of anything were also wet On our way out we complained and the chap apologised and would pass on our comments to the chef. They would have been better off popping out and buying a box of Mr Kipling which would have been better than the ones we were given. Needless to say we will not be returning to the Spread Eagle. A very disappointing visit and a complete waste of money!

I visited the Spread Eagle with my husband and some friends in December 2021. It looked beautiful, filled with tasteful Christmas decorations. Other plus points were the bar, which was cosy with a huge log fire and the service, which was very friendly.The bed was huge and the comfiest I have slept in. The minus points were the limited range of drinks in the bar and the food, which was frankly disappointing for a hotel of repute. The breakfast was just awful, with bullet like mushrooms and overdone bacon. I asked for a gluten free alternative to a sausage and was told there was none. On the plus side with the food, my gluten free options were very thoroughly gone through before I ordered my evening meal. The stay was to be a treat after a ghastly year but sadly the food let it down.

We stayed for the 3 day Christmas break. Every thing was perfect from our room to open fires in the cozy bar area, the food and friendly, attentive staff. We have been staying here regularly for the past 20 years and are always very happy with everything.

Everything was wonderful from the atmosphere and delicious food and wine, to the very attentive, friendly and hard-working staff; including Sarah, the manager, who had such a fantastic attitude of “nothing is too much trouble”, as did the rest of the team. We would certainly look to returning and cannot recommend the Spread Eagle highly enough.
