This used to be a regular haunt of mine and I still have a pint or three in here every now and then. This place seems to undergo a lot of refurbs! In its latest incarnation it is a 'Flaming Grill' pub. Can't help thinking it looks a bit tacky from the outside now and it looked better when it was a more traditional black and white. I haven't eaten in here for many a year so can't comment on what the food is like these days, but looks pleasant enough when plates are being delivered to tables. These days there doesn't seem to be a divide between bar and dining areas like there used to be, you can sit anywhere and get a meal. There are usually a couple of real ales on, Wainwright seems to have a regular presence. Considering how many refurbs it has had, it does look a bit shabby and neglected in parts, for example the toilets (gents at least) are a bit worse for wear and there is crumbling plaster near the side exit door. Pleasant enough but get the feeling it is no longer the pub it once was.

Went to the Pelican Hotel on 05.03.2001 to celebrate the 25th anniversay of some very special friends. First impression of the private function room was that it looked tired and in need of some updating, ie decoration. The staff worked extremely hard to serve the guests, both behind the bar and serving of food. The tables were not set properly with no condiments availbale until asked for. A lack of spoons became evident when the dessert was served which meant a lenghty wait. A lack of wine glasses was also a problem and slow service behind the bar due to lack of staff. Wine was to have been served on arrival but this ended up on the tables with the meal due to lack of staff and organisation. occasion. Duty manager finally appeared very late in the evening after a request for his some time before. Poor, slow service and lack of staff spoiled an otherwise special occasion.

Stopped in here for a pre-match meal and pint after a long drive from Southampton (22/08/09). Was staying in the Altrincham lodge hotel located directly behind for the evening, was up for the Wimbledon game. Saw the menu and reviews, and feared the worst, but was pleasantly surprised. Really polite and diligent staff. A decent selection behind the bar, couple of real ales and the usual suspects. Timothy Taylor was in good nick. Gambled on the two steaks for £10 and was stunning for the price, could not fault it at all. Locals seemed a bit intimidating but were very chatty and welcoming. Lots of tellys about which was ideal for the cricket. Default modern pub interior but all things considered, pretty good!

Itís great in here now itís no smoking. I actually go in the place more often and drink more... Thatís the downside the upside is only takes me five minutes to walk to the place but strangely a lot longer to get home. Up the Red's
