We met our friends here for a lunch and decided to have the festive menu. The food was good and arrived hot. The menu represented good value and the service was excellent. A very relaxing lunch and one we would repeat.

We had dinner and breakfast here in this very busy restaurant. The service was superb for both. The dinner menu choice was pretty good and our food (steak pie and mash, fish and chips) was tasty and filling. Breakfast is buffet style help yourself. It was extensive, plentiful and delicious. Even the coffee was good. The decor and furnishings are... More

Trying out our local hotel's restaurant, we were not disappointed. The welcome was warm and the service excellent. The menu is fairly narrow but gives a good enough choice. My fillet steak would have struggled to weigh in at the stated 6 oz. but was tender, tasty and perfectly cooked with a splendid béarnaise sauce. My wife chose the salmon... More

Visited The Spread Eagle with a friend for Afternoon High Tea yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was plentiful & good quality. The staff were polite & helpful. The atmosphere was informal & unpretentious. The prices were very reasonable. We will definitely visit again!

We booked a room at this hotel having stayed before. It is centrally located in Thame, and has good car parking facilities, although you have to pay £3 for a 24 hour period. Our room was at the top of the hotel with a view over a rather shoddy balcony next door, and the back ally of the high street... More

Walked in thinking this was just going to be another pub, dark dingy and not inviting....what a lovely surprise, somebody has given a lot of thought to the decor and ambience. Staff were great. Food was amazing for the price, freshly cooked, quick service and not bad prices. Definitely coming back! A big thank you to all concerned
