Everything was excellent. We just thought it was a bit pricey for what you get.
Friendly staff and great food . Would definitely go again
Excellent food, excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. We had a table of 8 people and our food turned up all together, we didn't have to wait for drinks. A real pleasure to have a family meal there.
Plenty of choice on the menu and a lovely spacious venue with a pleasant, cosy atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food was good too. We’ll definitely be visiting again!
We visitied the Pelican a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it the staff were amazing and the food was outstanding.
We recommended to other friends and we visited with them last night, unfortunately although the waitress was very good and friendly the food was way below the standard we experienced before and the atmosphere was nowhere near as good with lights too bright and not very warm.
This was a birthday treat for my daughter and it was a lovely time. Food was great, staff were brilliant and even sang happy birthday and bought a small cake with a candle
Boring food, mechanically polite staff, no personal service. We will not be returning
Lovely food, lovely restaurant. Staff were great, very helpful. Lovely to be in such a normal environment again. You were able to simply forget the last 18 months and enjoy being out with no signs, directions, restrictions or requests for your medical history .... perfect. We will definitely be back. Thank you
Nice selection of dishes to choose from the menu. Desserts were great. Friendly service with a smile and all at a reasonable price. Plentiful onsite parking too.
Like the quiet atmosphere. Food enjoyable. The portion of pulled pork was a little too small and the brioche bun could have been warmed. The fries and coleslaw were excellent. The seafood risotto was a little dry but tasty. The two desserts of sticky toffee pudding and cheesecake were delicious. Overall decent lunch and would return and recommend
Wonderful food great pub. Great atmosphere and great staff
We had a very pleasant sunday lunch
Service was good
Every body was helpful and friendly
Wonderful atmosphere, good food and excellent service. Highly recommended!
Nice to see the improvements to The Pelican, much improved from my last visit, and had a lovely meal which was very good value for money.
Really wonderful food, staff were polite and helpful. Will be back.
Food and staff great. Accommodation needs updating.
We have visited The Pelican on several occasions with friends and definitely noticed this time that there had been a change in management. The atmosphere was much better the staff were amazing and very friendly the food had improved 100% both in choice and quality. Cant wait to visit again.
Excellent service and really nice food. Plenty of parking. Good selection on menu something for everyone
Great food and service. We had a free round of drinks due to a slight delay with our order, will definitely be returning.
We had such a lovely evening here food was fantastic, the staff were super very happy ,friendly and helpful would highly recommend this pub for a lovely meal.
The two staff on duty on a moderately busy lunchtime period managed very well. The food was well presented and enjoyed by all. Not too pricey! I would definitely visit again. My only niggle was that the only tonic water available was orange flavoured. Whether that was down to faulty management or stock transportation issues at a difficult time was not explained. Overall a good experience.
We picked the Sunday Roast from the menu - Absolutely delicious and nothing left on our plates - We all had dessert, Cheesecake, Belgium Waffle, Sticky Toffee Pudding again DELICIOUS- lovely friendly staff and we will be returning to try something else from their menu
Very friendly staff, good portion size (I had the fish and chips) and nicely spaced seating.
Will be going again.
Really enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. Definitely go back again.
Excellent service and food. Catered well for gluten free guest - very knowledgeable.
Only issue which is out of their hands was a really loud group and because my hearing is bad, we left a little sooner than we normally would have.
Can't fault the staff or food though!
Was lovely to visit this pub. Was amazing food. Very busy the night we attended. Service could be improved.....
Excellent quality of food, I had the Pelican burger delicious, my friends had the fish and chips and halloumi burger which was equally delicious.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Really lovely family dinner
Car parks need tidying up, more staff reqd, queues at the bar
Nice place, plenty of seating inside and out in pleasant surroundings, bit of intrusive noise from the A4 mostly motorcycles!
Service good, food good but I do wish it was a bit hotter especially the plates, maybe it's just an older person thing.
Obviously renovations ongoing as I had to duck under a power cable on the way to the gents!
We would visit again.
Good position on the A4, serves as a useful meeting point, tidy and well presented venue
Food was of good quality and presentation was very good.
Lovely Sunday roasts & good quantity of veg, fantastic homemade Yorkshire Pudding too. Good value for money. Also had BBQ but didn’t try that day. Friendly staff.
The pelican has just had a refurbishment (August 2021) both inside and out. It looks amazing the garden has a lovely eating and drinking area which looks onto the pond, plenty of space for children to play.
Inside everything looks new.
The food and service is as great as it always has been.
I will be going back soon.
Had to wait a bit to order but otherwise everything was great. Sunday Roast was lovely!
Service needs improvement, bar staff are trying to describe to you where your table is instead of showing you, no-one checks if the meal is ok and if there are any problems and it’s hard to get someone’s attention if there is something wrong as they are all flitting in and out. It’s clear they need more staff because the staff that are working, don’t have enough time to be fully attentive.
Great service - couldn't ask for more for a lunchtime
Found this restaurant whilst on holiday on the kennet and avon canal. What a find!, as we don't eat meat we were concerned there wouldn't be enough choice. There was lot to choose from, it was a hard decision! I can thoroughly recommend the falafel bites with sweet chilli dip, followed by a wonderful Greek salad with side of sweet potato fries. We were too full for desert, but the menu did look tempting. We will definitely be returning!
The food was classic pub food, good enough to visit again. Our table needed polishing and the area we were in lacked pictures and personality. Very nice helpful staff and as a casual night out was it a nice experience!
Good service, lovely food and good location. Walked alnog canal after lunch then returned for dessert and cuppa.
