Friday Night Dinner - at The Spread Eagle

Friday Night Dinner at The Spread Eagle, Rolleston-on-Dove

The Spread Eagle in Rolleston is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food.

Reportedly one of the oldest buildings in Rolleston, The Spread Eagle was established in the 16th Century. Situated on the main bridge at Rolleston, the building has been used as a schoolhouse and a venue for local courts. Originally called The Mosely Arms, the building was renamed The Eagle Child, before being permanently changed to The Spread Eagle in 1851.

Here's a link to the menu:

And with the added bonus that I have a voucher for 25% off the Food bill :-)  

Meet at 7pm by the bar, with the aim of sitting down at our table at 7.15pm.

Limited to 10 places. 

If all the places have gone, please join the waiting list, as someone may drop out between now and then. 

For anyone on the waiting list, if a space does become free, members automatically move up to the attendee list in the order that they joined the waiting list. 

Please note that facility for bringing guests has not been enabled for this event, due to the limited numbers. Anyone is welcome to sign up but they will first need to join the group, if they are not already a member.

    A big thanks to the 7 of you that came along on Friday evening, especially to Clare who helped fill an empty seat at very short notice :-) Also good to see a couple of new faces. It was a shame, in the end, that an event that, at one point, had 25 people on the list ended up with places not filled. That's the nature of Meetup I guess! We have a very enthusiastic group at the moment, which I think makes "limited number" events tricky to manage .... because generally more people want to come than there are places available!! I have decided, therefore, to have a rest from hosting meals, so that I can concentrate my efforts on events that have no restriction on numbers, to allow everyone who wants to, to sign up and join in. In the main, I've enjoyed hosting the meals and thanks to anyone who has ever been to one, we've certainly had a few laughs :-)

    I'm happy to help/organise meals. I would hope that if people say they are attending particularly so close to the meal they will. I understand Steve's frustrations and will operate a strike 1 option on meals for any no shows. This ensures those who look forward to and enjoy the meal meets don't miss out or have to be there but not feel part of the Derby Socials on other tables. I'm open to suggestions but will put a meal on soon if the committee accept my event. I'm new to Derby Socials but have to say I have met a great bunch of fun people and had some good nights both with and without the group. Long may it continue.

    I would just like to thank Steve for picking this venue. Due to the demand, 3 of us came off the waiting list & 2 off the attending list in order to both make room for others to move up the list & also the 3 of us were keen to enjoy a night out. We booked our table on Monday as there were still around 9 on the waiting list so it seemed the event would be fully supported, sadly when it came to the night 2 places weren't filled. Nevertheless, those of us that did make it had a really enjoyable evening. It is appreciated the trouble our hosts go to when organising any event. Thank you.

    Hi Steve,
    I came off the waiting list as there were 6 of us that fancied coming & it was suggested we might book a table of our own with the view of others moving up the list. It seems to have done the trick! So although we will be on a separate table we will look forward to seeing you & those of you that managed to get a place.

    Nooo I just made other plans just this afternoon as thought I wasn't going to get in....will cancel my RSVP and open up a place for someone else.

    Hi. This venue is quite local to me -so I can go anytime Steve- I know this one is a limited number. I am changing my RSVP so another member may go :)

    February 1, 2014

    • Steve

      Thanks Claire. I know it wasn't an ideal situation that you would have had to come on your own anyway, so hopeful will see you and Peter at another event soon :-)

    Hi, I'm off the wait list, so anyone below me moves up a space.... Dear daughter has decided to come home from Uni that weekend so I will be taxi driver, cook and slave to the washing machine!

    • Steve

      sounds like hard work .... we'll think about you :-)

      January 27, 2014

  • Sheila

    Any news on a spare seat Steve ?

    January 26, 2014

    • Steve

      I'm not sure what news you're expecting? There are ten places available for this event and should any of the members who are currently attending change their RSVPs, between now and 7 Feb, then those people currently on the waiting list will move up to the attendee list automatically, in the order that they joined the waiting list.

    Hi Steve !can I plus one please ?

    January 8, 2014

    • Steve

      Hi Claire. I'm sorry but at the moment, this event is restricted to members, until I know what interest there is, because it's limited numbers. However, you can always get your "plus one" to join the group :-)
