As always, food and service was excellent. On-line booking very easy. Air-con rather chilly. Restaurant was almost full and quite noisy with guests chatting. Maybe carpet and soft furnishings where possible would help. Still my favourite venue and I will eat there again. Being local I have take aways as well.

The Pelican restaurant get everything right for an enjoyable fish & chips experience. The restaurant is light & airy, clean with a relaxing décor. The service is excellent and the quality of the fish & chips is second to none. It is our first choice when wanting a fish & chip meal.

everything was excellent, it was very busy with customers which made it very noisy in the restaurant so it was difficult to have a conversation with our friends which is why the ambience was marked lower

We loved the staff.They were very friendly.Food as usual was excellent.The cod adult size seemed a bit thinner than normal,but nonetheless was cooked perfectly.The prices,we expected to be more due to the present situation,but The Pelican is still the best fish and chip shop for miles.Sticky toffee pudding and brownies were yummy! Will always come here when we want a treat.

As usual, we had a warm welcome and were served within an acceptable time with a generous portion of quality food which was very enjoyable. The restaurant was neatly laid out and clean and the servers were friendly, asking while we were having our meal if everything was alright. The toilets were spotless adding to the general well being of the restaurant. It is our first, and only, go to restaurant for fish and chips as we know without a doubt that we will have an excellent meal at a competitive price without having to wait ages. The Pelican cannot be faulted and I have recommended it to many people who all think the same after their visit.
