Pelican Inn Review
From its slate roof to its whitewashed plaster walls, this inn looks so Tudor that it's hard to believe it was built in the 1970s, but the Pelican is English to the core, with its smallish guestrooms upstairs (no elevator), high half-tester beds draped in heavy fabrics, and bangers and grilled tomatoes for breakfast. Downstairs, the little pub pours ales and ports, and "the Snug" is a private fireplace lounge for overnight guests. At dinner in the tavern-like or solarium dining rooms ($$–$$$), keep it simple with fish-and-chips, roasted hen, or prime rib, and focus on the well-crafted wine list. Lunch is served, too—a good thing, since your nearest alternatives are miles away via winding roads.
