It's still over hyped, the locals propping up the bar look at you as if you've flown in on a spaceship from Mars. Restrictive choice of beers, unwelcoming atmosphere.

A proper, no-frills, down-to-earth pub (and music venue) blasting out some excellent reggae sounds when we visited. Maybe a little shabby looking, but we met the most amazing, friendly people & ended up having a fantastic evening. Loved it & would rather go back there...More

A little bit rough and ready but it seems to be more of a music venue. Toilets could definitely do with an upgrade.

Good selection of beers and Ales ect. Very polite helpfull staff. Nice little beer garden out the back. Live music all week, jam nights, djs, comedians, something for everyone. Best thing is one of the Cheapest Pub's I found within the city walls in York.

This pub was next to the hotel we stayed at and went in for a swift drink one afternoon. Pleasant surroundings and swift service. Worth a visit if passing by.

The Spread Eagle is a fantastic, traditional style pub, situated in the centre of York. With regular live music from local bands and DJ's we have established ourselves as part of the live music scene in York. We serve a full selection of draught beers, wine and spirits for your enjoyment along with a lovely range of soft drinks for those non-drinkers and drivers. Situated at the back, there is a lovely beer garden where customers can have a refreshing drink in the summer months and simply relax. The Spread Eagle is the perfect place for a busy night out with live entertainment every week.
