I've heard a lot of good reviews about this pub so decided to try it out. Went with my husband on a busy night over Christmas and was very impressed. All the staff were friendly and helpful - food was served hot and promptly.

Decided to take the whole family on a Sunday afternoon just after Christmas and was still impressed with the service/food. All the children (who can be fussy) found several things they liked on the extensive menu and ate it all!

Overall, a good place to eat and drink :-)

Although I live nearby I never visited this pub before but been there yesterday for dinner with a group of friends and I was pleasantly surprised. Food arrived after 10-15 mins of waiting. I just had an appetizer as not very hungry, and I have to admit it was delicious and very nice presented. I would definitely go again.

Neighborhoods setting, walking distance from my B&B, Rowen Guest House. Food, exceptionally good, piping hot, lots of veggies and what I believe to be real mashed potatoes. Too much on my Lamb shank meal to finish. Cold, cold brew. All for £18. Efficient servers well paced service. Great menu selections. Toasty and warm the way a Pub should be.

We go to the Spread Eagle quite regularly. The food is great, lots to choose for all tastes, the staff are pleasant the manager is always chatty. Average meal about £6, there is a large choice of puddings....if you are not full after the main course,lots of choices for starters too!. For those wanting to try something else, their food choices inc kangeroo, wildebeest, ostrich, crocodile!, all brought to your table in a steaming hot rock cooked by yourself!

Another trip to Abingdon, another really fantastic meal,.at the "Fluttering Duck " ( as we locals used to call it years ago.)...
Pleasant atmosphere, helpful staff, decent wine, nice beer, etc etc.....
A bit dark in the restauraunt, and obscure window glass a bit off putting....but not a big deal
it was great meal....and pleasant time had by all.....
