Welcome to The Pelican, Chew Magna

From Friday 10th May, The Pelican is under new ownership!

You can still expect the same great food and service, just with a few new faces. If you have an exisiting booking, a member of the team will be in touch with you.

Please note: the pub will be closed until further notice from Monday 6th May, and you will no longer be able to book a table through The Pelican or Butcombe websites.

The new Pelican team hope to see you soon!


Located in the heart of Chew Magna, The Pelican sits on the edge of the Mendips surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside.

Inside, the cosy, modern bar and dining area with log fire is the perfect spot during the winter, while our spacious garden comes alive in the warmer months.

Outside, you’ll love our dog-friendly courtyard beer garden with a pergola area for those seeking shade on sunnier days.

Choose from a delicious seasonal menu with a focus on local produce and traditional pub classics, a selection of local Butcombe beers, spirits and cocktails behind the bar, and wood-fired pizza to eat in or takeaway throughout the summer.

Looking for somewhere to host an event or party? The Barn is a stunning space perfect for all kinds of private hire occasions, from birthdays and wedding receptions to stag and hen parties, and office Christmas parties.

We’re child-friendly and wheelchair-accessible, and ideally situated for walks and cycling routes around Chew Valley Lake, and trips to the Chew Valley Distillery right next door.

For electric vehicle drivers we offer 3 x 75W EV charging stations.
