A hidden gem

We had our wedding reception at The Spread Eagle in September and I would thoroughly recommend them as a venue. We brought our wedding forward by 9 weeks due to Covid-19 with only 3 days notice and Sarah and the team pulled out all the stops to ensure it was a beautiful day. The food was incredible (such big portions!), the wine delicious and the hotel as a backdrop was simply stunning - from the restaurant to The Jacobean Hall and not to mention the Queens Suite where we stayed. The support we received from Sarah, the General Manager, was amazing and we can’t thank her enough for helping us with our big day. This place is a hidden gem and if you’re looking for a historic venue with a homely atmosphere and friendly personal service then book your wedding here as you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you for the excellent organisation of our wedding day, before, during and afterwards. A number of our guests commented on how well everything was run and what a lovely time they had. We, of course, had an amazing day too!

The staff were brilliant....

Thank you so much for making our day so special – we couldn’t have asked for anything else. The team were brilliant and looked after all of us and our guests so well…including ham sandwiches at 2am! We had such a brilliant party, we just want to do it all over again!
