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.
“We popped into The Pelican for lunch, and were surprised. Friendly staff and prompt service. A huge piece of cod in lovely crispy batter and well cooked chips. My wife had a piece of grilled salmon again excellently cooked. All a very reasonable price too. The Pelican is now my favourite sit down chippy in Barnstaple and the surrounding area.”
