Having spent an enjoyable drink in the pub beer garden over the previous weekend and only living 3 miles away, we decided to return and sample the ADVERTISED early evening weekday 5-7pm set menu offer. We arrived at 5.30 to be informed that "the Chef does not arrive" until 5.45! In good faith we ordered a first drink while we... More

We were introduced to this lovely pub by friends. We have now visited several times in the past week or so. The welcome has each time been very friendly and the food has been really good. This is a great example of Pub Food at the right price in the right setting. We have enjoyed really good service on each... More

We have just been to the friendly spirit and I have to say the food was out of this world ! There is so much to choose from, how people on here can say different is beyond me !!! They have a lunch menu with a daily specials board, main and dessert £6.95 and an evening menu and specials board... More

This is difficult for me as I live in the village. However after my last visit I feel I need say something. This time last year had improved greatly, but in the last 6 months has deteriorated. Being the best located in the village should have a lot to offer. We like the idea of being able to have a... More

Good value two meals for £10 before 7:00pm. Food well cooked and good service and resturaunt very clean and tidy. The Friendly Spirit has decent decor and overall a nice village pub with basic but good quality food.

Service was awful, food was average and over priced, staff were unaccommodating and in one case was positively acidic. A real shame as the last time we visited family in Cannington and went for a meal here together we had high hopes for this being the new local eatery, with the village losing the good restaurant at the king's head...

Had an early dinner here as we were staying nearby. The welcome and the service left a lot to be desired. It was poor value for money too. Didn't seem particularly clean and dread to think of the poor souls staying in the place. Wont be returning, even for a drink.

Firstly we didn't stay here, but we were staying in the area, after a recommendation we thought we would try this pub for dinner one night.. Wish we hadn't! Arrived early for drinks in the garden, barmaid was friendly, unfortunately everything went downhill from there! After we were seated at our table we were obviously forgotten about, after waiting a... More

Three of us had a good meal early on a Saturday night. Local cask beers available. Although the menu is simple there were several items on the daily board plus they will try and adapt for you. Desserts are home made and not the run of the mill bought in ones. Treacle tart that is as mother made! Service was... More
