Visited the Pelican Diner on good Friday and i can honestly say i have never had a burger that good! Properly sourced ingredients and you can tell from just how good they taste. Followed by a Strawberry Milkshake, which looked and tasted amazing! The owners are lovely and even though they were busy i still had excellent service! I wish them luck and can tell they are onto a winner! Would recommend to everyone!

What a little gem nestled in the old town! Cheerful friendly staff staff and one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. Great vibe to the place. I would especially recommend this place if you like American food but of an exceptionally high standard! Amazing coleslaw too!

Took my sister to this diner last weekend and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We tried the burgers, I had the BBQ burger which was delicious. Really good quality meat and very tasty. My sister had the spicy diablo burger with rosemary fries which were yummy. Seeing as we were in a diner we finished off with a milkshake. Felt really authentic, and amazing location right on the sea front. Can't wait to try the breakfasts, thoroughly recommended.

Nice place. Always thought this building was amazing but never had the chance to go in. Really like what they've done with it and though it's quite informal it seems to work well. Had a burger and chips which were really nice. I'd recommend the milkshakes and they say that they hope to be doing cocktails soon.

Nice place with some nice things but overall the food was basically horrible. Would not go back. Waitress didn't check on us either so had one drink and couldn't even complain until we left. Has potential but train your staff and try a bit harder on the food.
