Established in the 1500s, The Spread Eagle near Burton-on-Trent has a colourful history as both a school and court house. Now, it offers well-loved British pub cuisine in a country setting, with views of the Alder Brook from the beautiful gardens. It features a cosy hearth-fire, rustic log-piles and an appealing cream exterior with unique green window frames.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Spread Eagle menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Spread Eagle ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.
While nestled in the picturesque countryside amongst the bubbling tributaries to the River Trent, The Spread Eagle Rolleston-on-Dove is only 6 minutes’ drive to Burton-on-Trent.

((((( 13 September 2018 by Toni from Burton upon Trent
The occasion was a reunion of 9 cousins and 2 dogs. Although the table had been prepared we decided to eat in a less formal setting in a different room because of the dogs. As it turned out the 2 tables which we put together made it much easier for us to share conversation over lunch. A lot of us chose fish and chips which was served in large portions and was delicious. The rest also enjoyed their meals. We stayed for about 3 hours. The only criticism I can think of was the limited range of veggie / vegan dishes. Service was unobtrusive and cheerful.

This is the third time we have visited this restaurant, we come as a group of 8 old friends. Each of us travel around 40 miles to get there, and we deemed it worth the travel because the meals have been excellent and the service first class. Everything was great until we ordered the coffee. The young waiter just couldn't ger it right. To weak to strong, but what really left a bad taste was a young female waiter who took the problem personally. She said and I quote why don't you come to the machine yourself, if you think you can make it better!! When we politely declined she said very aggressively, ok I'll knock off the bill. Now the thing is we hadn't drunk the coffee we only had a sip, so she wasn't really doing us a favour. To be honest it really spoilt the night. On reflection we agreed that we would be better spending over £200 somewhere else on a quiet Tuesday night.

Booked late in the day but staff managed to squeeze us in. Beer choice very good although your draught ale was expensive and shouldn't be . Great atmosphere for early Sunday night . Meal were ok , my beef was tough and asked for a meat blade to cut through it and could have done with a little more quantity on both our dinner plates . Whether this was to do with it being late in the day ????

Cured roast pork was excessively salty.
Pana cotta was the consistency of cheesecake.
Staff were pleasant.

Excellent service, particularly for a busy Saturday night. Would welcome bigger selection of vegetarian dishes ... that doesn't mean SALAD or QUICHE ;) !

Disappointed there was now duck on the 3 for £20 offer so had to order off the other menu which made our meal more expensive. Also on the mixed grill the lamb steak was replaced with a piece of chicken breast. When we asked the waitress she went away to ask why , her reply was supplier of lamb could supply but no one had told her but no compensation was offered and we paid £5 extra for this. The chocolate ale cake was ok but the sorbet with it had lumps of ice in it. Sadly disappointed with our meal.
