The Pelican Fish & Chip Restaurant and Takeaway is MSC certified which means that we have made a commitment to the future of this beautiful blue planet that we call home; to doing what we can towards protecting our oceans, the species that call them home and the livelihoods that they support.
We 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.
We are very proud to be MSC CERTIFIED (chain of custody code MSC-C-53721), which means that we wholeheartedly support and promote sustainability, traceability and the ‘chain of custody’. Every link from the fishers to our customers is audited and certified to ensure the traceability of the fish you choose to eat.
So if you have chosen to order a prime fillet of our MSC cod or a beautiful frozen-at-sea MSC line-caught haddock or one of our battered or hand-breaded MSC plaice fillets or any of our homemade dishes - with Royal Greenland MSC prawns or any MSC Catch of the Day then pat yourself on the back because you are making an important and informed choice to make a difference!
The future will thank you!

We were assessed on the overall appearance of the takeaway and the restaurant both inside and out, hygiene and cleanliness, staff training and records, practices and procedures of both front and back of house, equipment, staff knowledge and sales skills and, most importantly the quality of the final cooked product as it is experienced buy the customer.

“We visited The Pelican for our Christmas family meal last night, which consisted of 24 children and adults, the service was great with polite staff who were keen to check if we had everything and if we needed anything else. The food arrived all together which is amazing as there was so many of us and was it was delicious. The puddings arrived and looked and tasted Michelin style. We are a local family and eat out at different places and my dad said it was the best meal he had ever tasted, the fish was amazing, which is a first as he always struggles to finish his meal. And to finish the evening the owner offered to take a photo of us all outside so we could all be included. A wonderful memorable evening. Thank you x”
