About the Pub

Large roadside pub that dates from the 18th century. It is a listed building but has been thoroughly modernised inside. Three hand pumps serve two standard and one changing ale. Comfortable seating and formal dining furniture prevail. Carpet and quarry tile flooring. Meals served everyday. Outside is a very pleasant garden with stream and duck pond that won the Hungerford in Bloom contest 2 years running.

Historic Interest

According to historical records the Pelican Inn was built towards the end of the 18th century (it is marked on historical road maps of 1773 and 1792) and was the latest of three original coaching inns in the village. This reflected the busiest decades of stage-coaching along the London to Bath road during the early 19th century. However by the middle of the 19th century only the Pelican Inn remained open for business due to the rapid decline in coaching traffic which coincided with the building of the railway. By 1843 it was reported that the last coach had ceased running between Bristol and London. The Pelican Inn has had rather a mixed past since these times but it has always been a privately owned free house. More recently it has been a gastro-pub, a Chinese restaurant and a nightclub. At one time it was even owned by the famous children's TV presenter Johnny Morris.
