    Food delicious BUT service appalling. We had booked for three adults and two children and had to wait forg an hour and twenty minutes before our food came and even then one dish was brought out at a time forcing us to wait even longer until everyone was served! This also happened at the next table to us. There was no real apology and we left very disappointed by a pub that we had been visiting for many years.

    Very friendly pub in the heart of the Chew Valley. My friend and I sat by the fire and enjoyed a very long leisurely lunch. I had the fish platter and my friend had the sole off the special's board, and we were both very happy with our choices.
    The staff were attentive and friendly.
    Look forward to visiting again soon.
    The only thing I don't like is dogs being allowed in a restaurant, but then I suppose it is a country pub

    Excellent lunch. We have visited 'The Peli' many times usually for lunch. Food has always been excellent. On this visit we both had the same Wiltshire pigeon to start, followed by the special fish of the day Hake which was extremely good, one of us had sticky toffee pudding to follow. Excellent meal.
