The Pelican fish and chip customer testimonial

“The Pelican has been around for a long time but has hugely benefitted from the recent investment. The fish and chip dinner served with tea was high quality, well cooked with a light batter and excellent chips. No sign of excess oil, light and crisp with no skin. The burger was excellent - meaty and well prepared. The restaurant itself is clean, modern and well presented. It is what it is and it was excellent.”
