We had a very good experience. There was plenty of choice on the vast menu. The food wash freshly cooked and cooked to a high standard. Staff are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. There was also a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Prices are very reasonable in comparison to other eateries in the area.

We went on the strong recommendation of close family, and were not disappointed. The ambiance is very pleasant and friendly, with a happy buzz. It was very busy when we went, but service was good and there were no real delays. An interesting menu, a cut above the norm for a pub, and the welcome was warm and friendly. We... More

This pub has really stepped it's game up in the last year. It is now a 'Vintage Inn' and it makes for a really lovely dining experience. It's warm, cosy, friendly atmosphere, the staff are good and the food is lovely. Good, well cooked comfort food and a sensible price tag to go with it. Great if you're driving past... More

The Spread Eagle is a very busy gastro pub (best to book in advance) that concentrates more on the food side than the conventional pub side. As a result, when you walk in it feels like a restaurant more than a pub. If it is as busy as it was when we visited (a Saturday night) you will not be... More

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.
