The Spread Eagle in Thame was the only wedding venue we went to go and view. The reason for this was because we fell in love with it as soon as we looked at the photos. Seeing it in person was beyond what we imagined and seeing it all done up and decorated on our wedding day was beyond perfect. The

staff at The Spread Eagle were absolutely amazing! Bryan and Gemma on the run up and the day before our wedding were so helpful and answered all of our worries and questions within record time. Sometimes we felt like we were over messaging as I was a big worrier but they always replied within record time and helped us. Demi was absolutely fabulous on the day of our wedding. She was so friendly and made everything run so smoothly. It just all came together and everything fitted perfectly into the day. The venue looked absolutely beautiful, better than we could of ever imagined. All of our guests were pleased with their rooms and the meals. The DJ was brilliant. If we could relive the day over and over again then we absolutely would! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day such a special day. We cannot wait to come back again in November for our 1 year anniversary meal! Xx

We were extremely lucky with our venue, Gemma was amazing at helping us plan our day which we had over 2 dates due to covid. We were married sept 2020 and had our wedding breakfast which was fabulous. We were made to feel welcomed and special and I stayed the night before the wedding with my wedding

The Spread Eagle....what can I say,simply perfection...from booking the venue to our last minute before leaving to go on honeymoon, the team at the Spread Eagle provided us with the perfect day.Our families and friends stayed the whole weekend and were amazed by the rooms,service,cleanliness, the

food and the “if you need anything just ask”attitude of the WHOLE team, we could not have asked for more.Richard, our Master of Ceremonies, was an absolute diamond and the whole day flowed with such ease and calm that we never had any reason to worry about a thing...and then there’s Gemma...this lady will relay any nerves or worries with a simple smile and an air of professionalism that is second to none....
Thank you Spread Eagle team...what a perfect start you gave us to married life and we certainly won’t be strangers, we will be booking the weekend for our 1st Anniversary to relive some very special moments.XX

Wow! What an amazing day my husband and I were given by The Spread Eagle. From the moment we started to plan with them in july 2018 nothing was too much trouble. They took the time to listen to what we wanted, and plan it in detail for us at very good price. The venue is beautiful and we fell in

love with it the moment we saw it and even more so on our wedding day. We stayed in the bridal suite which was just lovely. I would recommend this venue to anyone who will listen. We had the whole wedding day at the hotel and they way that they have the room set up for the ceremony was great and made a large wedding feel very personal. When the room is set for the wedding breakfast and party it was just perfect and what we wanted it to be. If I could do the day all over again it would be with the spread eagle. If you are considering this hotel I strongly recommend you arrange to go and have a good look around and sit and discuss what you want your day to be and I can guarantee they will provide it.

Thank you again to Richard and the events team that helped us!

Firstly we'd like to thank all of the Events Team at The Spread Eagle Hotel in helping make our day wonderful.
Everyone who attended has told us how much they enjoyed the day and the venue.
The room we stayed in was stunning. All the other guests who had booked rooms were happy with their

Richard was brilliant and kept everything running smoothly on the day (I can only appologise for the late night - the guests were having so much fun they didn't want to leave!)
The food was delicious. The only negative of the entire wedding was one guest with a special dietry requirement was very upset and rightly so. I feel this could have been dealt with a little better away from the rest of the guests.
The bar staff were brilliant - no one was left waiting for long and they were friendly and polite.
The setting up of the venue was brilliant. It looked stunning and when changing the rooms over it was very prompt and organised. We really felt we were able to fully enjoy the day without worry thanks to your organisation and friendly staff.
I would definitely recommend the hotel as a wedding venue for any future couples considering it. Thank you again. We had an amazing day.

We first booked the Spread Eagle Hotel to host our very magical Disney wedding reception back in August 2017. In the two years leading up to our ‘big day’ we cannot fault the help and support that we had from Gemma. She phoned me regularly and was always there to answer my emails at the drop of

a hat. We were looked after superbly during our food tasting and it was so amazing for our guests to be able to choose 3 choices for starter, main and desert. On our final details meeting we had with Gemma we talked everything through and the event sheet she produced was so detailed.
We were allowed to set up the day before and this helped no end. Richard was absolutely outstanding as our events manager/MOC for the day. Everything was perfect from start to finish. The food, the layout, the evening buffet and our stay overnight. Kristian was incredible as the DJ and had the floor full all night long. A special mention to Vanessa who helped me massively with my dress and helping me get into the car. Our only piece of negativity would be the hayloft- we were not impressed that there was no bathroom door!!!
Thank you to all involved in our special day - you are a credit to the venue and it’s a days we will never forget!!

We could not have been happier with our experience at The Spread Eagle! We worked with Jen leading up to the big day, and she was super attentive. Since we were planning our wedding from overseas, we were so grateful for her patience with us and our endless emails each time we thought of new

questions. On our wedding day, we got the privilege of having Richard as our master of ceremonies, and he was absolutely wonderful. Richard and the entire team at The Spread Eagle that day made everything run more smoothly than we could have imagined. We received so many compliments on how nice the venue was, how delicious the food was, and how much fun our guests had. The American guests were particularly charmed by this quintessentially English hotel. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we're so glad we got the opportunity to hold it at The Spread Eagle!

We had been to a few places last year to choose our venue for our special day, we decided on The Spread Eagle Hotel, all the staff are very helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them, they are always happy to answer any questions you may have. We went for our taster evening, the food was

delicious, we chose three starters, mains and deserts and gave our guests choices, this went down very well with our guests, everybody said how lovely the food was, I agree, it was really nice. All staff were very efficient on the big day, I can honestly say I cannot fault anything at all, we were very pleased with everything. The rooms are lovely and clean and make you feel at home. Sending big thanks to ALL the staff, special thanks to Gemma, Jen, Richard and the staff at reception (so sorry, I didn't actually take note of their names) would highly recommend The Spread Eagle Hotel for a perfect wedding venue, thanks again.

Hi Gemma / Jenny

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the organising you did on Saturday. It was such a super day!

Can I also say a special and really big thank you to Richard, on the day he was so flexible and kind, it really made the day. I'm afraid the next morning I had to rush

away and couldn't say how grateful I was for all that he did.

We had such fun on Saturday and really appreciated Richard opening the bar earlier and adjusting time scales to suit the weather and the footy crowd!

We're still on cloud nine - thank you so much!

I cannot recommend the Spread Eagle highly enough!

Kind regards

Thank you so much for everything you did for Ailsa and Will's Wedding party on Saturday night. It was a great success and we all enjoyed it. Ailsa and Will were over the moon about the party:it was everything they had wanted and more. They both had a fantastic time.

There were several really high

points: so many commented on the food: it was really excellent and everything we had hoped for. Thanks to all the Spread Eagle staff involved.

Than you too for your advice about the DJ and florist. Again they were absolutely brilliant.

I will certainly be recommending the Spread Eagle to friends and family who didn't experience it for themselves, if ever they need a venue for an event. It was fantastic!

We held our wedding here in August this year and could not have picked a more perfect place.
From the moment we viewed we knew it was for us. With many children coming the venue was perfect as the garden area is quite private with no traffic (there is a car park but its so quiet you don't notice).

Read More

The room which is huge can be split into two so we had half the room for the service itself (for over 100 people) and the other half of the room was made up ready for the evening do all ready. We had drinks reception in the main bar and garden area. Everything went perfectly during the day and that was all thanks to the amazing team at The Spread Eagle. Amanda and the team could not have been more helpful and though we couldn't afford a massive do, they never made us feel that we were doing it on the cheap (which we were to be fair!) and treated us like royalty throughout.
I seriously cannot recommend this place highly enough. My only niggle is that the day went way too quickly and wish I could do it all again!
Thank you The Spread Eagle

The Spread Eagle Hotel was a fantastic choice for our wedding reception last April (2012). We wanted a venue that suited our taste in decor (eclectic and chic) but still felt relaxed and not at all stuffy, that delivered great food and importantly was great value-for-money - The Spread Eagle and

the team could not be faulted in any of these aspects.

Being England, you never now what the weather will be like hence why we wanted a venue that had a lot of indoor space for our guests in case the heaven's opened (which they did!). On a practical side there was plenty of parking for guests and the alcohol was also very keenly priced - unlike some weddings we have been to!

The care and attention provided by Jen and the team was fantastic throughout, from our initial meeting, to coming up with ideas to the final execution on the day nothing was too much trouble and they they were professional, yet extremely friendly and approachable at all times - it took a lot of the stress out of it to be honest! Even minor last minute changes and requests didn't phase them and they did everything to make the day a success.

On the day, Richard was our Master of Ceremonies and did an amazing job of taking on board all that we wanted and making it happen, seamlessly and seemingly without effort - we couldn't have been more happy with the reception and the food was delicious. In fact, lots complimented it and one couple even said it was better than at their wedding at another venue (high praise indeed!).

We had the Hayloft for our wedding night and it was very comfortable and had the 'wow' factor. Guests that stayed in the hotel also praised the rooms and the lovely breakfast in the morning in our reserved area.

We honestly couldn't thank the team enough and we would seriously recommend this venue to couples who want a relaxed yet elegant venue, a professionally run (and stress-free!) event and with beautiful, tasty food to boot.

Thank you!

I had my wedding at the Spread Eagle on the 8th September 2012 and it was perfect!

I had searched every venue in Oxfordshire for a venue that was boutique in style but was big enough to accommodate our lage wedding (150 guests to the day). I stumbled across the Spread Eagle whilst searching the

internet, and as soon as I saw it I knew it was for us.

Jenny was our wedding coordinator and she did everything in her power to help make our day really special. We had regular communication by phone and email and quite a few meetings prior to the big day to tie up all the loose ends. The hotel even invested in a bamboo fence to sheild the garden area from the car park at my request, they really did bend over backwards to help.
We had a delicious menu tasting - the food was so good it made it really had to decide on our final menu. The hotel was really flexible and enabled us to have a menu where our guests could choose from 3 options before hand. Everyone commented on how good the food was, from the giant canapes (we had mini burgers, sausages etc) to the wedding breakfast and the hog roast in the evening, which was lovely feedback to receive.

All the staff on the day were fantastic, Richard our MC was brilliant and all the waiting and bar staff were great too.

Most of the rooms at the hotel have been refurbished ina chic style and they are done to a really high standard. The other rooms are more traditional and not to my taste but some of our guests stayed in these rooms and still really enjoyed their time. The bridal suite - the Hay loft is gorgeous and very spacious!

If you want a classy, sophisticated wedding then the Spread Eagle is a great venue and worth a look.
