I love the Old English Pub feel of the Pelican Inn at Muir Beach. We ran our two dogs on Muir Beach, flew the kite, watched the waves, and then stopped here for a pint before heading home. We sat on the lawn with our dogs and hung out for a while. Wonderful moment in the sun, and it beat... More

I really love this place, I visited repeatedly over the years when in SanFran. You can easily find this old-style english inn on Pacific HW, near Muir Beach, a few miles away from Muir Woods. Quiet, charming, and serving delicious food.

Visited Monday July 6th. Well apointed pub and restaurant. Small B&B style inn. Didn't stay this time only lunch. Have stayed here before. Nice rooms and great breakfast the next morning. Lunch this time was on the lawn out front with my wife and doggie. Fish and chips and a Guinness. Wife had ham sandwich. The provided Doggie with biscuits... More

We have stayed here many times, and the Inn still holds its charm for us. This time we stayed in Room #6, which was very nice. It did however have the door to the pub immediately below, so it was a bit noisy until closing. The room and our night's rest were very comfortable. It was a Sunday,so the late... More

We stopped in for a pint and food for the kids and stumbled onto a modern (built in the last 40 years?) old English-style Inn. Helen took care of us in the pub/bar section while we drank Racer 5 IPAs and the kids had french fries. We did NOT stay the night, but look forward to the next time we're... More

My spouse and I stayed here in May 2014 and it was the most memorable B&B of our trip. We were driving back from Napa to SanFran in order to visit Muir Woods and decided to spend a night at The Pelican Inn based on a recommendation from a friend and we were SO glad we did. This is not... More

We stayed here to surprise a friend on his 50th Birthday. This place is located about 1/4 mile up the road from Muir Beach and is an easy and safe walk to the beach. This is a Bed and Breakfast and I have to tell you that it is old and aged. I totally felt comfortable here and thought the... More

The Inn is a cute place from the outside and the website markets the location as a nice getaway. The rooms are not very clean and the furniture is worn and fairly dirty as well. The walls are paper thin so you can hear activities from other room and I woke up twice in the middle of the night from... More

If you are looking for a bed and breakfast, pub, restaurant, beach, views, hiking, fishing, sunbathing, nature walks, don't come here because it has it all and more. Charming, homey, great food, great pub menu, good beer selection, and cute rooms. What more can I say. I like the people that work there.

This establishment has absolutely no idea what customer service is all about. We were supposed to arrive by 4.30pm but got caught in traffic, as a result we were 5 minutes late. The boy on the front desk had booked off his shift and no one else would see to us so we had to wait for 25 minutes until... More
