Pelican Fish & Chip Restaurant

1 Oakland Park, Sticklepath, Barnstaple, Devon, EX31 2BZ

01271 345605

Welcome to the multi award winning Pelican, where we’ve been serving up great classic British fish and chips to locals and visitors alike for more years than we’d like to shake a stick at!

And now with our recent sleek refurb, dining is elegant and relaxed and we continue to offer menus to make your mouth water.

Although our flaky fish fillets in our light and crispy golden homemade batter and our crispy coated fluffy chips (from local spuds) are what we’re really famous for, we also have many other delicious dishes that we hope will keep you coming back.

Stocks being favourable we offer a freshly caught catch of the day, we have south Devon crabcakes, Devon reared beef for our selection of gourmet burgers, fresh salads, Devon orchard fruit drinks, ciders, craft ales, local dairy luxury ice creams and our chef is a dab hand at homemade fish pies, fishcakes and Goan fish curries.

Even our team of friendly staff is (well, mostly!) locally grown!

Open all day with ample parking, free wifi, children’s colouring menus, groups and parties welcomed and an Old Barnstaple photo gallery for those who go back a bit…

Treat yourself to our hospitality or for a flying visit pop into our takeaway!
