Secretly Famous™ for…

Amazing food, jazz evenings, meandering walks, fantastic afternoon teas, secret doors to secret places and seven spectacular rooms with seven spectacular views.

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Ribble Valley, renowned for its leafy lanes and historic towns and villages, the Spread Eagle is a delightful coaching inn sitting on the bend of the meandering River Ribble in the village of Sawley.

Within a few miles of the Spread Eagle, there are some of England’s most inspiring locations, including Sawley Abbey, Pendle Hill, Ribblesdale, and the Forest of Bowland - an area also famous for producing some of Lancashire’s finest food and drink.

With understated elegance, this is the perfect home from home. With amazing food, local ales, and a menu featuring the best of local producers and growers, the Spread Eagle also plays host to a range of popular events; from lazy laid back Friday night listening, to its famous Ribble Valley Rambles and guest speakers on its popular Ladies Who Lunch series, there is something for everyone.

The seven new rooms upstairs add another dimension to this much-loved pub - combining a stay here with one of Gary’s extra special meals, great ales and wines, and a hearty walk in the Ribble Valley, really does make the Spread Eagle the a perfect getaway.

And for those extra special occasions, go through the Spread Eagle’s secret door into the stunning celebration suite: the perfect place to help you make those special moments even more memorable.
