Lovely summer's evening & when we arrived at the Pelican, many people were sat outside sampling the vast array of beers & cider on offer. Such a great atmosphere & excellent ales - my particular favourite was the espresso martini beer from Bristol Beer Factory...More
This little gem is a must for any real ale drinker who prefers the traditional type of pub. We would rather go here than to the modern manufactured establishments. You get a good pint and a warm welcome even if you are not a regular...More
It's probably forty years since I last visited The Pelican. A quick search for the name will tell you that they closed in 2008 but they've evidently reopened since then and I was greeted by a very good range of ales and ciders and a...More

There is no food but food...More
