This was our first visit to the Spread Eagle for quite some time and I can honestly say, we should have visited earlier. The staff were very tentative, the food was cooked and presented to a high standard and reasonably priced. All in all, we could not fault the visit and would not hesitate to recommend the establishment.

On a cold, rainy Sunday we bundled into The Spread and had an excellent Sunday lunch. Very generous and tasty portions, with a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. Would happily return!

We know we won't be disappointed at The Spread. OK it's a little on the expensive side, but the place is almost full & very cozy. Don't have the table by the roaring fire or you will be roast as well. A perfect pint of Pedigree.

We went for lunch and I'd have to say the food is distinctly average. I paid £11.25 for the beef and mushroom pie - the pie had a very odd taste, quite sweet and not at all beefy. The mash was pretty horrible - like it was out of a packet and microwaved and the vegetables were inedible - liked... More

Called in here on the off-chance on Saturday lunch time. Didn't realise this was a Vintage Inn. This place is set in the beautiful village of Rolleston, next to the church. Ample car parking and side street parking if needed. Lovely decor in a comfortable and very clean environment. Toilets are upstairs. Restaurant and bar area for eating, we chose... More

Friendly staff, cozy atmosphere. Nice outdoor bit with plenty of seats. Dog water bowl available. Quality pork scratchings (happy dogs) and a good selection of drinkable wines. Worth a visit. Situated in a picturesque neighbourhood.

Called here on journey home to Chesterfield from Wolverhampton. What a beautiful old oak beamed building. Terrific meal for 4 on Sunday 16th Oct late afternoon, service excellent despite being very busy, food cooked perfectly good portions. Vintage Inns really know what they are doing with this brand. Thanks for rounding our day off beautifully The Johnson/Hewitt party.
