The Pelican Experience
Four up, we arrived at the Pelican Inn around 7pm and went in, ordered drinks and informed the bar staff we had booked a table, we were told to go through to the dinning room where someone would attend to us. In the dinning room, waitress having trouble with till but did show us to our table! Unfortunately in front of me was some sort of sticky congealed mess obviously left from a past diner, pointed this out to the waitress who quickly brought a wet cloth to wipe the table, unfortunately to no effect! Oh well she tried! So we ordered four meals and waited. Waitress arrives with three meals and disappears, we assume to get the fourth meal! No such luck! She returns to ask what the fourth meal should be as they had left it off the ticket! So four people three meals, fourth eventually arrived and we all tucked in. I had ordered “Fragrant Chinese Spiced Pork Belly”, what I actually got was a lump of 80% fat 20% meat pork belly on a dollop of mashed potato with gravy and some sort of tough vegetable. The other three said their meals were OK but nothing special and so we moved on to the sweet, which all agreed was very nice as was the coffee.
Summing up ' The Pelican' lacked atmosphere and in my opinion served poor quality food.
Would I return? Not in a million years!!
Ps We did leave a tip as we thought the waitresses did try their best but lacked training!
