More Information

Since the 16th century, The Spread Eagle has hosted historic guests such as King Charles II and the writer Evelyn Waugh. Today it offers a warm welcome, excellent food, free parking and free Wi-Fi.
The Spread Eagle is in the heart of historic Thame, famous for its 1-mile-long (1.6 km) Main Street. With a rich history, the hotel’s guests have included royalty, famous politicians, writers and even French prisoners from the Napoleonic wars.

The Spread Eagle was made famous by the unusual John Fothergill, who owned the hotel in the 1920s. He wrote about this in the popular book, “An Innkeepers Diary”. Fothergill believed in the highest standards of food and service – this tradition continues in The Spread Eagle’s Eden Bar and Grill. A fresh new English menu is served, including a reassuring ‘comfort cooking’ section.
The fantastic city of Oxford is within easy reach, along with the historic town of Aylesbury. For shopping addicts, Bicester Outlet Village is only minutes away.
