In the past we have enjoyed an excellent standard of catering at the Pelican, so when 4 friends came to visit us we booked them in for two nights at the Pelican - promising them a gourmat style meal. Meeting them in the resturant that evening we first became a little uneasy when the 'Chef Specials' were shown as Ham,... More

Worth travelling to enjoy a great meal, staff were very friendly and polite. Nothing was too much effort. This pub was recommended by a friend who knows what they are talking about. Food was well cooked and great choice. Would return again.

Booked a couple of rooms for two couples at The Pelican on a Sunday in May as we were attending my Granddaughters christening in the next village of Bunwell. We were able to collect our keys early as the church service was at 2pm. The rooms were spotless and very nicely presented. As we spent most of out day and... More

Great place to stop, good food and a nice balanced menu cover a wide range of tastes, the draught beers on sale are excellent and varied being a freehouse. Comfy rooms nothing special but more than adequate. Plenty of parking. Not forgetting the beer shop next to the bar for the odd bottle of special boutique brewed ale, good local... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the staff could not have been more helpful. We have a problem finding food due to Coeliacs disease and were looked after very well, even to changing the menu for us. Thank you Pelican
