Spread Eagle Hotel
The Spready isn’t reinventing the wheel, but it has nailed all the essential Aussie pub elements.
May 01, 2023
Better known as The Spready, this Richmond haunt is home to all your pub necessities. Come for a decent selection of beers, live music, Sunday trivia and a really great parma.
But unlike many other Melbourne pubs, the Spread Eagle Hotel doesn't just make a good parma and then leave it there. Instead, the kitchen pumps out a big mix of greasy eats and more refined dishes. Share some potato cakes, Korean fried chicken and beef sliders with your mates or try the melt-in-your-mouth braised lamb shank and the classic French coq au vin.
And don't miss the sweet treats that include a big slice of Basque cheesecake, a sticky date pudding (perfect for winter) and a classic affogato served with your choice of liqueur.
