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

This was our third visit to the Pelican Inn. Each time we have visited, the service has been brilliant, the quality of food is very high and is excellent value for money, Other food establishments could learn a thing or two from the staff at the Pelican.

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

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
