We can not thank the whole team at the Spread Eagle enough for making our day so special. Excellent communication from the start of when we started to look at venues, right up until the day itself.

The venue is all we could have asked for and the ability to have all the day in one venue and also

be able to stay on site the night before/night off the wedding was exactly what we were looking for.

The food was excellent and the service throughout the day was superb.
Highly recommend this venue.

My and now husband were looking for a chilled-out but beautiful evening and Spread Eagle went above and beyond. We had the evening we wanted.

Spread Eagle were very accommodating to what we wanted and had the space to do this. The food was excellent - loads of compliments from our friends and

Our wedding was everything we could have wished for and so much more. That's all thanks to the Spread Eagle Hotel. Erica was amazing, friendly, helpful and always got back to us really quickly when we emailed. She also gave us list of suppliers that are local and are used which was very helpful. The

hotel is beautiful and the bridal suite was beautiful and stylish. So many of our guests that stayed were so impressed and loved their rooms as no room was the same. We can't thank Erica enough.
On the wedding day, Richard was great, the whole day ran so smoothly and everything was how we imagined. The room was set up beautifully. They were very accommodating with allowing to set up some things the night before. The food was also amazing, we did have some fussy eaters and they even said how great the food was. We were lucky to be able to take photos outside as the rain decided to stop. They have some really beautiful areas for photos. We had use of the restaurant for breakfast, which the food was lovely and there was a range of food to pick from. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly.
We and all our family and friends had the best day.

We held our wedding at The Spread Eagle Hotel and chose to have the 'big one' package. This meant that practically everything was taken care of for the wedding celebrations. The venue provided chair covers, table linens, canapes, drinks, the wedding breakfast, evening buffet and DJ. This means, as

the bride, I had an easy life organising the finishing touches.

Erica, the wedding and events co-ordinator, made sure everything ran smoothly and was very patient with a slightly disorganised bride!!

The venue was beautiful and the rooms very comfortable. The food was delicious (especially the sticky toffee pudding) and there was plenty of it. We supplied a cheese and pork pie stack and the venue happily accommodated this. It was lovely to be able to tailor a package to our wants, needs and budget.

The bar staff were lovely and absolutely fantastic with the children as well!!
