About The Spread Eagle Hotel, Thame

The Spread Eagle Hotel is an Art Hotel in the middle of Thame, meticulously restored and designed to provide a unique stay right in the quintessentially English setting of Oxfordshire.

The boutique hotel has 35 individually styled eclectic bedrooms, a restaurant and bar, and large and small banqueting suites ideal for weddings, family functions, conferences, and private events/dinners.

The hotel was originally a Coaching Inn built in the 15th Century, and it boasts plenty of character and famous guests going all the way back to King Charles II.

The Spread Eagle is in the heart of historic Thame, famous for its mile-long Main Street, and 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.
