Mr. Paul Webber
Just horrible...
Hi to all. Would like to leave my comment here, regarding the awful, awful meal that me and my family had at this pub. We have been at the Friendly Spirit few years back and always have had a proper service with good food. We went there last week, and i must say that we will never be back there. And i advise everyone to never go to that pub with a self claiming award winning chef!!!! I wonder what the award is... How not to cook?!!! Horrible, horrible horrible.... cold food. hard meat. seems to have been in the fridge for weeks.. even the smell of the food was bad.. been charged 88 pounds, for 4 people when all we had was a bottle of wine, and four inedble meals.. thanks a lot!!!

Mr DJ Binding
Very Dissapointed
My wife and I called into the Friendly Spirit Cannington one lunch time this week, and decided to order two lunchtime meals only to be told that it was not possible to have a carvery but was told instead that I could have a roast lunch, I ordered Roast Pork,when this meal arrived it had a large Yorkshire pudding placed on the top this could only be described as made of BALSA WOOD, Burnt to a cinder, and unedible, and you could not penitrate some of the vegatables with the fork, and at that moment my wife commented what a good portion of meat was on the plate when this was investigated it was found to be the leftover bits you generally find pushed in the trough at the side of the carving tray, not a sliced portion to be seen.
When ask if the meal had been enjoyed I explained that I was not impressed with the meal and ask to see the manager a young person then arrived to say he was the under manager, who listened to my discription of the meal and my complaint and I was informed instead of having the normal sweet on offer I could have a choice of any sweet . this was declined because I am a DIABETIC I was then charged the full amount for the food which could only be discribed as disgusting. My passing comment was were the managment and staff aware of the other competition in the same business quite close at hand in the vicinity this remark seem to fall on deaf ears. I feel entitled to pass these remarks as I spent 12 years in the licensed trade so have the experiance and some knowledge about what I am talking about, I would suggest that the owners of this establishment when advertising that the premises now employed an Award winning topTop class chef with Certificates, it is my opinion that serving meals such as we recieved he should be certified, he and some of the staff would be a liability if it was my business, especially in today's climate

great food. visited on 7th April 2006
Visited The Friendly Spirit 7/4/2006, nice food. Customer relations some what lacking, I asked for a floater coffee but enquired if it was fresh cream and nothing funny and was assured it was proper pouring cream. When it came it was uht cream I said I couldn't drink it and it was taken away. I was not offered an alternative. A nice lady came and asked me about this and I said as it was not what I asked for and I had not drunk it I didn't think I should pay for it she said ok don't worry about it. I left my money for the meal with friends as I was leaving early but despite all their protests and arguments my friends where made to pay for my coffee by the curly haired waitress who works there. This was embarrassing for them. Seven very unhappy people who will not eat there again and will tell this story to their friends.

Mr Alford
Excellent
Firstly, Mr McCarthy, and anyone reading this, what was supposedly written by Miss Staff is completely untrue, someone clearly seems to have an issue towards her and the Friendly Spirit, to the extent to even use Miss Staff's full name falsely, which is also deformation of character. I say this because Miss Staff actually works at the Friendly Spirit and is proud of where she works and the service she provides. I have had numerous visits there and like the other reviews am very impressed with the service and food. Would recommend to anyone.
