The Pelican, or Peli as it is fondly called by locals, is set in the heart of Chew Magna on the edge of the Mendips surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside.

Come rain or shine, The Pelican is the perfect choice. With a cosy bar and dining area complete with log fire for the colder months, and ample seating outside so everyone can enjoy a spot of al fresco dining in the sun-trap courtyard. Choose from the delicious three-course menu, a selection of Butcombe beers, spirits and cocktails, and pizza to eat-in or take-away from the wood-burning pizza oven every Sunday evening.

The Barn: If you are looking for somewhere to host a meeting, coffee morning, birthday party, gig, intimate wedding reception, and more, the beautifully restored Barn is the venue for you. Give us a call or drop us an email to find out more.
