The pub is enjoyed by locals for the strong food offer and due to the popular surroundings the letting accommodation is frequently well let by visitors.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Friendly Spirit is a great business that has an established trade for both accommodation and home cooked food. I am now seeking a publican or couple that wish to engage with the local community but also can continue the quality home cooked food, so catering experience is essential.
