As the 2019 awards are just around the corner, it’s great to catch up with previous winners, this week we caught up with The Pelican. It’s great to remind ourselves what the awards do for business and the Fish & Chip industry.
The newly refurbished Pelican has only been opened for 2 months but they already have seen an incredible 50% increase in trade! With a prominent location in Barnstaple, the 110 cover restaurant and takeaway is a key business in the area and since opening its doors again, the locals have been flooding back!
French’s Fish Shop, established in 1923, is situated on the quayside of Wells-next-the-Sea and only yards from the sea. The view is one of the best in Britain, with the 100 year old sailing ship moored opposite. The shop is now in its third generation of the French Family, with Marcus French taking over the business in 1984.
