Really smashing food - proper ingredients, freshly prepared and sensible portions. Prompt and friendly service. Very clean and smart. No complaints at all and will definitely be back. (It was a little cold, but I think this was because the weather had been so warm previously no-one was expecting the cold snap and I suspect the heating might have been... More

Stopped by for Breakfast, and I was pleasantly surprised by receiving a freshly cooked Full English Breakfast comprising of proper ingredients, and not the usual cheap catering crap that so many other places palm you off with. It was excellent value for money, noting that the 4 Coffees cost more than the 2 Breakfasts ???, and that the portions could... More

We had lunch at the Pelican back in the 70's. Our memory of the place was much different than today. Meal was lunch and average at best. Didn't have the cozy charm of the once pub it was. Very much a place to eat and drink for the locals.

We have been calling into the Pelican Inn over the years on our way to Southampton because we knew that we could always get a really good meal there. Unfortunately the last two visits we have not enjoyed our meals. I don't know whether they have changed their chef or they were having an "off" day? We called in last... More

We have periodically visited the Pelican for meals and found the menu to be basic good food, well presented, cooked and tasty. Lunches were also good. The meal we had tonight was the worst we have had in years. Four dishes were unavailable from the limited menu including the pie. The French onion soup had been thickened with something (perhaps...

We called in by chance as we were camping nearby. The food was very good and the staff great with our dog & children. I can recommend the pizzas ( home made 2 for £15 on Thursdays) and the Liver, bacon & mash. We were so impressed we went back the next evening. There is also a large garden &... More
