We popped in for a hurried meal, our time was short and we were seated and served straight away, our food was great and although we wouldn't usually rush so much , we were happy it was quick! We shall return for a less hurried visit as it seems we have stumbled upon a real norfolk gem :-)

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Pelican a few times now, I have to say its a beautiful place, the food quality is always outstanding and service always really friendly. There is a lovely garden too for the extra special days in the sunshine. I am looking forward to my next visit!

We went in a party of 4 following a visit a few months ago when everything was fine. We were therefore surprised by happenings on this visit. I ordered a sirloin steak but when it arrived it was a rib eye steak. I don't like rib eye and this steak was awful anyway as it had thick lines of fat... More

We've been on the search for lovely country pubs in Norfolk and this is one of the best. Really mouth-watering food in a Pub with real character. We are all looking forward to going back soon! we would really recomend The Pelican Inn to anyone who likes a lovely environment and wonderful food.

We had a lovely evening with friends. The food was very good and the staff were very attentive. The atmosphere is lovely, relaxed with an old fashioned but modern feel - if that makes sense. We were drinking champagne, which was lovely - and they had plenty off. We will certainly be going back!!

I went to The Pelican Inn with my parents for a Saturday evening meal, and it was fantastic. We all had starters, I chose the asparagus, poached egg with salad and dressing which was so good I think it should be an option as a main. For my main meal I had the risotto, which was an alternative option to... More

The sign of a good establishment is how they deal with a problem. There was a mix up with our room booking but the staff at the Pelican went out of their way to sort it our for us. We were travelling with my 90 year old Mother and The staff provided us with rooms next to each other, our... More

Just back from a most lovely relaxing weekend at The Pelican Inn. Very warm greetings from Esther, Bryn upon arrival. Our room was everything we expected. We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night and we so enjoyed the food, wine and atmosphere that we booked in for the second night too. The Pelican Inn was perfectly located... More

Visited for a Sunday lunch for 4 of us. This is not our first trip to the pub and every time we love the feel of the place with a rustic English pub feel with a lovely open fire in through to the contemporary and homely feeling restaraunt in the rear of the pub. Fantastic and beautifully cooked roast beef... More
