(Restaurant only) There was some delay in the food arriving. A good part of this (to be fair) was because the dishes were cooked to order. The initial annoyance at having to wait (which was fine if, as we were, you were in an animated group with no train to catch) was tempered really quite a lot by the quality... More

I decided to take a friend visiting from Norfolk for an evening meal Saturday 25th July . We had booked a table for 8.30pm. We arrived at 8pm and as it was a lovely evening, decided to have a drink first in the beautiful gardens. We came in at 8.30pm, and was given a table immediately. The waitress was quick... More

I came to the Pelican for lunch with my children. As is ususal in a pub, we ordered our drinks and then asked for the lunch menu. My 10 year old son ordered Macaroni cheese from the childrens menu and my daughter (5) shared my meal. The childrens menu was 7.50 which included a drink, a main course and pudding.... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and the kitchen had closed ......however the lovely lady behind the bar had a word with the chef and he managed to rustle us up a great lunch . My partner had beef pie with veg and I had the Meatballs with tagliatelle and both meals were cracking . We sat outside in... More

Three of us met here for Sunday lunch. When booking, the manager explained there was a large party due at 1pm and it would be best to arrive for 12.30pm in order there would be no delays for us, which was considerate. The staff were very pleasant apart from a young male waiter who looked and acted as though he... More

A friend and I stopped in whilst travelling by, we were after a coffee and bite to eat whilst driving through the area and the board advertising coffee outside therefore attracted us in. The appearance of the pub is very good; clean, attention to detail and well maintained. However, the biggest problem is the courtesy of the staff. We were... More

Turned around specifically to go in as the signs outside say "COFFEE ALL DAY"... No coffee. Was offered a cafetiere by one of the punters rather than the unhelpful lady behind the bar. Not an option for us as they can't do take away coffee either... Didn't ask for a room for the night... Didn't want to bother them any... More

we have just stayed at this pub at the weekend. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly to the whole family and espcially to the young children and various labradors who were made most welcome. The pub decor is very good. On the sunday we had an excellent lunch for 20 people and the roasts were superb with plenty of... More

We keep coming back to the Pelican, and it has become our favourite place to eat in the area. The food never disappoints, the staff our attentive and we will continue to keep going back. P.s the chicken and Ham pie was the best I have ever had.

Call up last minute to try and get a table and we're fitted in. On arrival we were shown to our table and in no time we were tucking in to Roast Beef. I can't find fault.... beef was tender, Yorkshire puddings crisp and veg hot. Staff were polite and attentive. The menu - extensive and interesting... We will be... More
