The Pelican is a traditional country pub, which is well off the beaten track. The pub is nestled below a wood on a rolling hillside, five minutes away from the beach, in a picturesque spot overlooking Ogmore Castle.
Guests can sit on chunky wooden benches in the garden and patio area, while sipping a cool beer and admiring stunning views over the estuary.
Located about half an hour west of Cardiff, the seaside location and friendly atmosphere attract a lot of families, especially at weekends. The romantic setting also draws couples, who visit to enjoy an intimate dinner after a romantic stroll along the beach.
The Pelican is every inch the traditional country pub. The grey stone walls are complemented by pastel yellow window frames and window boxes full of vibrant flowers. Inside, the bar and restaurant are cosy and welcoming .
Food & drink
The pub is equally good for a beer and a bar snack or a full three-course meal. A wide range of specials are displayed on chalk boards, with several vegetarian options available. The food is hearty and the portions are extremely generous.
There is also a wide selection of real ales for the discerning beer drinker. Some might find the food a tad on the expensive-side, but the portion sizes make it worthwhile. Staff are friendly and accommodating.
