We Ordered fish and chips and the fish was bony and tasteless, peas indelible, they must hav been sat there drying out all day. Vacant staff whose only redeeming quality was that one lady offered our dogs water. Our unappetizing meal was serenaded by possibly the most depressing music imaginable. If you are passing the pelican....keep driving!

Main complaint was the room I was in is at the front and with all 3 windows open it was very noisy all night as it... More

If your interest is in eating, please be sure to check reviews on the page for 'The Pelican Inn Bar and Restaurant'. Our experience was extremely disagreeable, and seems not to have been unusual for this place.

Extremely comfortable room, very efficient at reception and pleasant atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent. Only negative comment was the noise nuisance caused by kids rolling around in the bar but this seems to be fairly common these days.

I cannot understand the negative reviews! I stayed at The Pelican with no previous knowledge of the place, just a rating of 8.2 on booking.com. However, I arrived at a very well kept, warm and clean pub and was checkied in quickly and efficiently and shown to my room - clean, tidy and well decorated. I ate in the restaurant... More
