The Pelican fish and chip customer testimonial

“What a wonderful place to go for Britain’s favourite meal, fish ‘n’ chips. Wonderful soft, white cod, beautiful light, crisp batter and perfectly cooked chips, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I would highly recommend it, lovely clean restaurant and comfy chairs, there is also plenty of parking. What a treat”
