Situated a few hundred yards off the National Cycle Route 4 and about 1/3 of the way from Reading to Bath the Pelican makes an ideal overnight stopping place for those taking 3 days for the journey. The welcome was warm and we were able to store our bikes overnight in their enclosed private yard. The rooms were a good... More

Went there today with a party of 32 even though we booked for 20. There was no problem in them accomadating us and everyone was served promptly and the food was excellent. Well done Pellican, you'll be seeing us again!

I went there with my partner last Friday for dinner. The food was amazing. Fresh Seabass, beautiful Pork Belly with Black Pudding. My partner and I absolutely loved it. The Creme Brûlée was to die for. The shared Starter was huge as were the Mains. Sorry I couldn't eat it all, but we'll definitely come back for more. We are... More

My wife and I were here for one night - visiting for a friend's party at another venue, so we didn't dine here. Room was spacious but a bit spartan (not that we expected much else - this is a B&B after all) and the floorboards creaked. Cannot say we had a brilliant night's sleep as the double bed was... More

We are sorry the central heating was not on when you stayed. It has been remarkably mild recently and we were caught out by a cold night. It is on now. I would just like to pick up your point about potentially noisy front bedrooms. Some while ago we installed good quality secondary double glazing to the front bedroom windows... More

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!

Stayed for 3 nights, the standards are extremely high for a small country inn, food is superb and the service generally excellent. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and mine was huge. 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.
