Delicious, Award-Winning Fish & Chips

Fish & Chip Restaurant & Takeaway, Barnstaple, North Devon

Want some of the best fish and chips in the UK? We are now officially the UK’s ‘Best Fish and Chip Restaurant’ as voted by the National Fish and Chip Awards 2018!

We are extremely passionate about our fish and chips and are one of a growing number of good fish and chip shops that are helping to Turn the Tide on Overfishing by choosing to buy wild-caught or farmed fish from sustainably and responsibly managed fisheries.

Our MSC Certification means that we wholeheartedly support and promote sustainability and the traceability of our fish and seafood. We are the only fish and chip shop within north Devon to be awarded the MSC certification. Find out more about MSC certification on our Provenance page. And with a Gold Taste of the West award our menus combine this with the very best that our local farmers, fisherman, food and drink producers have to offer.

An award winning combination of Good Food with a Good Conscience.

Chips were not rationed during the war and Churchill called them 'good companions'. Good man.

The Pelican fish and chip customer testimonial

“We visited the Pelican restaurant today. The service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for the waitress team. The food was outstanding. I have a veggie burger and was really impressed with the presentation. I'm please to say it tasted equally impressive. My wife and son had fish and chips which they couldn't fault.”
