Spread Eagle Hotel


This Hotel dates back in parts to 1430 and was once a coaching inn. In 1533 it was bought by Sir William Fitzwilliam, Henry VIII's Lord High Admiral.
The Sun Insurance Company gave it a value of £400 in 1730. Admiral Lord Nelson frequented the hotel between 1791 & 1798.
 
During the 1830s the town's most celebrated stagecoach, 'The Earl of March', left the Spread Eagle for London at 10am every morning, except Sunday, and in 1907 a motor garage opened at the hotel.
In 2007 the hotel celebrated 50 years of ownership by the same family.
