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!!

supported. On the wedding morning, Erica and Brian continuously checked in on myself and my wedding party to make sure we were ok and if we needed anything. Erica was also very supportive of my husband with the set up of the room. Also I would like to thank Brian for helping clean my dress seconds before I walked down the aisle as my father stood on it! His calmness and support kept me calm and I needed that in that moment. Richard was always checking everything was going ok, he was very helpful throughout the whole day. Also, the food at the Spread Eagle was insane! All of our guest said how amazing the food was at the wedding and even the breakfast the next day was out of this world. The customer services we received was phenomenal and we couldn’t thank the staff enough! Thank you for all the support over the last 18 months to make our wedding day amazing!

Highly recommend getting married here!!

We had such a fantastic day at our wedding at the Spread Eagle Hotel. Erica was super helpful in helping us to plan every aspect of our wedding. She ensured everything stayed on track without stressing us out at all, and gave us ideas for suppliers and other bits to make our day special. She also

suggested things the venue could provide too to add to the decor, all of which were beautiful touches. The organisation on the day was great and everything ran smoothly, we honestly had the most chilled out day ever. The food was tasty and plentiful and there was just the right gap between courses, and the evening food was delicious and just what we needed. There were so many options that we could have chosen, and it was nice to be able to tailor our day to our tastes and budget. The cost of the day was so good considering the high quality of the venue, staff and service provided. The site we stayed in for our wedding night was huge, clean and impressive. A single bed was provided so our toddler could sleep in the downstairs area of the suite which was nice as we wanted to spend the night together as a family. Overall, we were so so pleased we chose The Spread Eagle for our wedding venue and would definitely recommend it for anyone planning their future wedding celebrations. Thank you so much Erica and the team for making our day everything we wanted it to be!
