An award-winning vintage coaching inn, Spread Eagle sits in a stunning rural location in the Ribble Valley. Its traditional pub and restaurant serves a menu of refined British cuisine and homemade pub classics.

Cold water prawn and crayfish cocktail is a light starter on the Spread Eagle menu, made with a spiced tomato, lime & coriander mayonnaise and served with brown bread and butter. A rich casserole of lamb neck fillet with potato and thyme is a comforting main, while traditional pub classics include chef’s pie of the day, made with butter puff pastry, and the signature Spread Eagle fish pie.

Hand-pulled ales and sophisticated wines at the Spread Eagle restaurant and pub in Clitheroe enjoy a rustic setting of slate floors, open fireplaces and oak-beamed ceilings. Themed evenings include a weekly curry night, and a lively Spanish tapas and rioja night.

Spread Eagle sits next to the historic remains of the 12th-century Sawley Abbey in the leafy surrounds of the Forest of Bowland.

    Food was fantastic! I had the mussels which I felt needed a little seasoning however apart from that everything tastes fantastic. The prices for the cocktails was not on the leaflet, it states £4.95 which what I expected however that is for pimms.

    Also the service was quite bad. Very long wait between ordering drinks and receiving them, having to ask a lady to come back so that all three of us could order a drink and also it took 20 minutes from being given a dessert menu for someone to ask if we wanted one.
    I know it's the end of the shift however I thought better attention would have been given.

    Also, if it's a warm night please don't open the windows, I don't want to be attacked by midges whilst eating.

    However will definitely be back as the food was amazing!!

    Food excellent as always. Service although staff very young also friendly and efficient. Eating in the restaurant is much pleasanter than in the bar especially if there is a wedding as the bar gets very busy and at a previous visit we felt that there should be a different bar for wedding guests .
