Description: The Spread Eagle is a beautiful pub, set in the chocolate box village of Rolleston on Dove. The building is a piece of living history. Established in 1651 it is one of the oldest buildings in Rolleston. By coming to The Spread Eagle you'll be experiencing a piece of British history and culture as well being able to enjoy our delicious menu and wide selection of cask ales, lagers, ciders, spirits and wines. During the winter, the warmth from our open fires will keep you warm and create an atmosphere which can not be recreated, and in the summer you can sit in our fantastic beer garden. Enjoying a late afternoon drink or an Al fresco meal whilst listening to the river dove trickle by. During weeknights we have our evening set menu which is 2 courses for £11.95, From 5pm. Every Wednesday is also Pie Day at The Spread Eagle, each week we offer a selection of 6 tasty pies served with a medley of vegetables and your choice of potatoes or chips. On Saturday you can treat yourself with our brilliant Steak and Supper menu, a 3 course fillet steak meal for just £25. We also have a children's menu for the little ones in your party as well providing superb Sunday roasts, every Sunday. We're looking forward to seeing you, from everyone at The Spread Eagle.

If a pub is full on a Monday night with a good mix of couples, families, friends and business people like me, then you know you're on to a good thing.

Good food, good ambience, nice service. Expensive - but worth it.

A little gem.

Turned up here (without a reservation) on a Monday night in the week before Xmas week when our two other choices in the area were unavailable. This was lucky because the Spread Eagle was unexpectedly nice. (We knew it was one of Mitchell & Butlers Vintage Inns brand and have had mixed experiences with chain pubs.)
There was a very large seating area for dining so that the tables are a good distance apart, traditional pub-style furnishings but pleasant enough. Staff welcoming and efficient. Wide range of food choices on menu. Wine list not extensive but more than acceptable. Overall, everything you want in a pub dining experience. Three main meals, two large glasses of wine and four pints of beer for £54 is a very reasonable price.

Went on a Sunday night (often not the best night for dinner) but we were well looked after. We had shell- on prawns to start and the sharing platter of roast meats to follow. Simple stuff, but all nicely cooked and presented. Vegetables particularly good. Recommended.
