Today (24.03.2013) myself and some family members went for a celebration at this restaurant. When we arrived we were sat at a table and left for 20 minutes with no service or menu's. My partner then had to go and asks for menus. We ordered some starters and roasts dinners as well as bread as this wasn't included. When our...

Chris K, Manager at The Pelican Inn, responded to this review

Hi Wiltshirelucy, Firstly, thank you for choosing us for your celebratory meal, I am saddened to hear it wasn’t to your satisfaction. We are not a fast food outlet and It is normal to stagger order taking, to make sure everyone's food, which is cooked fresh, comes out in a reasonable time frame. However, we clearly let you down on...

As a group of four, we all enjoyed our Sunday lunch yesterday, in very pleasant surroundings with very good service throughout.Three of us had the slow cooked Wiltshire ham, the fourth meal was the tagine. The roast potatoes were rather dry & tasteless but the rest of the food was good enough. Perhaps the food could have been hotter. We...

There was a good selection on the menue to choose from and our final choice came cooked just the way we like it. The...

We had our Christmas party with The Pelican recently and thought it was excellent. There were 38 of us and they ensured they accommodated our seating requirements in the restaurant so that we were sitting as we wished. The choices on their Christmas menu were varied with something more interesting than usual for the vegetarians. Lovely food with generous portions....

I don't quite know where to start with this one, the meal was SO bad we were all quite taken aback as it is so rare these days to experience such a poor show. We had chosen The Pelican as a meeting point for a family meal after having eaten good food here several times in the past - we...

Chris K, Owner at The Pelican Inn, responded to this review

We are sorry our standards slipped spoiling your outing and that you left still feeling aggrieved about your experience, despite the efforts of the Duty Manager to make amends. A new team took over just three weeks before your visit and clearly struggled with the weight of Christmas party bookings on this occasion. We are pleased that you thought the...
