Visiting with friends, we stopped here for lunch before heading to Muir Beach. Great English fair; I had the English Dip sandwich; Ate outside in an enclosed area, very nice. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful.

We made the mistake of trying to get a drink on a Sunday. One person serving behind the so called bar and a queue of 10-15 people where each order was taking 3-5 minutes. I'm sorry but any decent pub would have 3 or 4 people serving and you'd never have a queue like that. Ridiculous service. We left and...

This place has a lovely selection of beer, alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and decent bar food. On a nice day one can sit on the grass and be served outside picnic style. Portions are fairly large, service is a bit slow.

Truly about as close to visiting England as possible, without actually making the trip. Great location next to the beach, great food and pub bar - cozy but pricey rooms. I'm English and after spending the night thought that I'd been transported back when awakening the following morning. Well worth a stay and also excellent for a secluded Honeymoon

We were visiting Muir Woods for the first time, and our daughter recommended a stop at the Pelican Inn afterwards. It was, as I overheard another visitor say..... "rather like travelling 6000miles and back in time 200 years". The welcome was enthusiastic and friendly, and despite not wanting to eat, we felt valued as customers. Great pints of Blackthorn cider...

Rather small and olde worlde but on a hot Sunday afternoon at the end of November it was packed to the ceiling. Fortunately plenty of outside seating on the lawn. Would have liked to have eaten here but too crowded.

We visited Pelican Inn on a hiking trek. It was chosen for us as part of the trek, we did not chose the inn. The young lady that checked us in was nice but seemed confused or clueless about what to do. We were in an upstairs room but there was no bellman to take our luggage up the narrow...

This is an old English pub, literally, that is just 3 miles south of Muir Woods so is a pleasant stop for a glass of wine and bite to eat when you are done at Muir Woods. There is indoor seating with a cozy bar, as well as a charming patio. The building was brought from England in the 70s...

Visited during a hiking trek. Cons: Reception tried hard to accommodate but was basically clueless (trainee??). No bellman/luggage service. Had to haul suitcases up stairs. No TV in room. No A/C but that wasn't required that day. Room furnishings (rugs, chairs, sofa) were worn/dirty. Small room but that is consistent with an English cottage. Thin walls. Pros: beds were very...
