    Nice food, friendly service.
    (Moved tables as VERY noisy drinkers at the end of the bar)

    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.

    Food was good and we didn't have to wait long. However we ordered desert and coffee. The coffees came out quite promptly but we had to wait over 30 minutes for the desert. This is the second time that this has happened at the pelican. I asked twice for our deserts and on both times we were assured it was on the way. It's a shame because it affected the over all enjoyment of the meal.

    I rebooked after having a superb Christmas lunch with a group of friends. Sadly my return visit wasn't so good. The Christmas menu is only for pre booked "parties" so wasn't available for 4 people which was such a dissapointment as I had persuaded my friends that the 90 min round trip to get to the Pelly would be worth it. There was no Christmassy food at all available from the standard bar menu or on the specials board. 2 of us chose beef, one slice was delicious and tender the other was fatty and tough in parts. Veg and sauce was delicious though. there is no separation between the drinkers and those dining so it was extremely noisy but the staff were very pleasant and attentive.
