A charming rural pub nestled in the scenic village of Chew Magna, The Pelican Inn serves a great selection of gourmet British and international recipes for the while family. Inside, there is rustic exposed brick and cosy little log fires, while outside there is a lovely little suntrap seating area to enjoy a cask ale or glass of wine.

The Pelican Inn menu offers up a selection of both classic pub grub, and more modern international recipes, including gluten-free options. To start, there are snacks like classic sausage roll with apple sauce, as well as rustic treats like the chefs' soup of the day with homemade bread and Netherland Farm butter. A selection of pub classics include juicy steaks and burgers, as well as Butcombe beer battered fish and chips, with a range of more modern recipes featuring options like Devon crab with chilli, lime, coriander, coconut milk and pappadella.

Cask ales and world beers are on tap at The Pelican Inn in Bristol, as well as a selection of international wines and spirits. For pudding, tuck into classics like treacle tart with clotted cream, and mini chocolate brownies with a cup of Clifton coffee or tea.

A snug pub filled with rustic charm, The Pelican Inn is a 20-minute drive outside of central Bristol.

    Food cooked very well and pleasant service. Prices good considering the quality of the food. Really enjoy the range of choice on the menus. Wine list well priced. Beware, starters can be large!!
    Despite an adjacent car park with some spaces reserved for the pub, parking can be difficult even on a mid week lunchtime.

    We called in for lunch on the way to the airport. Great service, lovely waitresses. The door was delicious. We had ham hock terrine and the cured salmon to start, followed by pork loin and the salmon form the specials board. The food was hot and wonderfully tasty. Just the right size portions for lunchtime. Excellent experience and highly recommend!

    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.
