  • Our restaurant and fantastic courtyard seating are open.

    We’re taking extra steps to help keep you and our teams safe. We have fewer people in our kitchens which means we’re serving a reduced menu over reduced hours.

    Our Menu

    We’re opening slowly

    We’re using this time to make sure that when we do reopen fully, we can keep everyone safe. These extra steps might mean things are a bit different, temporarily.

About the Spreadeagle Inn

  • Great Food & Drink

    We are reopening with reduced menus which will be displayed daily on our blackboards and notice boards.

  • Luxury Accommodation

    Large Georgian windows, some low ceilings and uneven floors give the rooms character - with items of the Trust's antique collection, period furniture, hand-made soft furnishings and painted with Farrow & Ball soft colours giving the rooms a comfortable country house feel.

  • Weddings at the Spread Eagle

    Idyllically set within the 2,600 acres of the renowned Stourhead Estate, one of the most popular National Trust properties in the country, the Spread Eagle offers a unique and picturesque location for your Wedding Reception.

As you are all aware, the recent times have left hospitality in a very fragile position and as such we, like all hospitality venues, are finding staffing and supplier deliveries etc. extremely challenging at the moment, therefore it is with much regret that we are going to have to change our dinner offering. We will be serving dinner on a Friday and Saturday night only (5pm to 6.45pm)

Tuesday to Thursday will be on a bed and breakfast basis and for any inconvenience this may cause a 20% discount will be added to the room. There will however be an option to pre-order a cold platter (choice of Seafood, Antipasti, Garden, Dairy, along with dessert options) along with any drinks to be set out in one of our dining areas, the dining room will be available to residents until 10pm each night.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please contact the inn to pre-order platters etc. via telephone or email prior to your stay and we can send you a menu with prices etc.

Thank you for booking with us directly. If there is anything else we can help you with please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • About the Stourhead Estate

    The Spread Eagle Inn is on the Stourhead estate which features a Palladian mansion and world-famous landscape lake & garden.  

    Secluded in its own private valley, Stourhead features one of the world's finest landscape gardens. The 18th-century design centres on the magnificent lake, surrounded by classical temples, enchanting grottos and rare and exotic trees.

    Uncover the fascinating history of the Hoare family at Stourhead House, a majestic Palladian mansion home to a unique Regency library and fabulous collections of Chippendale furniture and paintings, set amid delightful lawns and parkland.  

    King Alfred's Tower, an intriguing red-brick folly built in 1772 by Henry Flitcroft, is almost 50m high and gives breathtaking views over the estate. Much of the estate woodland and downland is managed for nature conservation and there are two interesting Iron Age hill-forts, White Sheet Hill and Park Hill Camp.  

    Stourhead is at the heart of a 1,072-hectare (2,650-acre) estate where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for nature conservation.
