Overview
More
The Pelican Inn is a Traditional Coaching Inn right in the heart of Devizes Market Place serving a wide selection of Wadworth Real Ales, Ciders and Wines from around the World. In the Winter our open fires give off a warming glow and in the Summer our Beer Garden is the perfect Sun Trap. Darts and Pool are available to keep you entertained as is a Juke Box with thousands of tracks to choose from. Our Menu offers a wide selection foods to Eat in or Take Away that will suit all tastes with regular Home Cooked Specials available. On Sundays we are the home of The Great British Roast! Served from 12pm to 5pm booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. At the foot of our Beer Garden we have three beautiful letting rooms available in our converted Stables that are all Fully En-suite with free WiFi, Flat Screen televisions and Hospitality Trays. (We are "Dog Friendly" in our Bar and Garden areas but not in our letting Rooms.)

Hidden at the back of the beer garden are 3 self contained rooms. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful, and the rooms are finished to a very standard. Very comfortable night, highly recommended

We went here for Sunday lunch which on this visit was pork. It was very good. The meat was cooked very well but I was disappointed that it was pork loin so therefore no crackling! We will go again!More

The twin bedded room was very tastefully decorated and furnished - plenty of hanging and drawer space, comfortable beds, good lighting (often not the case), great shower, and spotlessly clean. The electrically operated skylight...More
