The Pelican fish and chip customer testimonial

“Arrived at 5.30pm and it was very busy, probably best to book. Very clean everywhere, service was very friendly and extremely efficient and we spoke with 4 members of staff, each of them providing fabulous service. Food came out promptly looking delicious and excellent value for money. Highly recommend the seafood basket which tasted so good. Children get an activity sheet with new packaged crayons and their drinks come in little plastic cups with built in straw-brilliant idea! Kids menu was fab”
