If you like nature, comfort, history, eating, England or America you will enjoy the Pelican Inn. Perfect location on Muir Beach, not too far from the city but far enough that you are really out in the landscape. Like the redwoods nearby, the hotel feels old and storied but stands sturdy and welcoming. Modeled after a tradition British Inn in... More

After a few hours hiking around Muir Woods, we planned to go to this pub after reading the reviews and we weren't disappointed! Being British, it's always a bit hit or miss when we find ourselves in a Pub in the US, but this lovely place transported us back to our village pub in England! The service was excellent, and...

I've always wanted to visit this inn, having passed it for years, so today we drove to Muir Beach and stopped for lunch. But first, I checked Tripadvisor and there really wasn't much good information about the restaurant. The Inn's website is not very imformative, either. So I'm writing a review to fill in the gaps. Lunch in the restaurant... More

We've traveled around Scotland, England and Wales extensively and this inn does not measure up. I can only think of one inn that compares, one in Salibury that was built in 1600 and appeared to have it's latest refurb in 1800. If this were an $80 a night hotel, perhaps it is acceptable, but the rooms go for over $250.... More

My partner and I walked at Muir Woods and then went to Muir beach. My partner said she always wanted to go to the Pelican Inn so we went for lunch. The atmosphere was great. We sat outside in the enclosed area and had nice pub sandwiches on very delicious bread. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I would recommend... More

This is a great place right near Muir Beach. It is romantic and such a different atmosphere than just a typical hotel or inn. The inn is just a two minute walk from the beach and 7 min walk to the zen garden. Over- all it was a great stay but in many places it looks like it could use... More

Loved the range of food - salads, banger and mash, cheese plate....great wines...ones I haven't had and didn't know about...stop here...you will love it and it wasn't super crowded either. You can have a picnic on the grounds; just bring a blanket and you'll love being outside.

A quaint inn and pub fashioned after a historic English inn. The downside was that the door frames are low (watch your head!) the rooms a but musty and the atmosphere was dark. The upside were all of the historic decorating touches in all of the spaces. The location was perfect for our trek into Muir Woods the following day.... More

We were treated horribly. Assumptions were made because we were not a conventional couple. To find such ignorance such a short drive from the bastion of open mindedness that is SF was truly disappointing. Their behaviour was disgusting.

We stop here every time we are at Muir Beach, unless we have come with a picnic in the first place. It is charming, and once you step inside, it feels like a pub in the UK. The food has never been what we called excellent, but it is a nostalgia trip for us to eat here. The service is... More
