Fast forward to the 21st Century...  our clientele can still deposit their cash here - and in today's economic climate the returns are better!

The Spread Eagle in Croydon is recognised as one of Fuller's Ale and Pie Houses, so we just love our delicious dishes that include mouthwatering pastry-encased goodness!

Head Chef Janet Butler likes nothing better than tantalising your tastebuds with lovingly homemade pies, using the finest ingredients. With twists on the old favourites like homity pie and cock-a-leekie, as well as some inspired creations like the Spread Eagle House pie with chicken and chorizo - there really is something for everyone.

If pies don't get you going, there are plenty of other otions.

One not to miss is the yummy Sunday roast! 

Our delightful ouside area is wonderful for alfresco dining in the summer, candle lit at night for a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. 



Does the thought of a tasty pint out a smile on your face? The Spread Eagle is where it's at!

We're proud to serve 5 of the finest cask condition ales on tap, all of which are brewed just a few miles away.
