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. The staff was friendly and efficient.

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 unfailingly prompt and pleasant. We always dine in the terrace out back, with all the vines and flowers and skylights.

This time, we opted for the fish and chips and small green salads. The salads were fresh and perfectly dressed. The fish was lightly breaded and fried to a perfection, but the fish inside was pretty tasteless and unidentifiable. No amount of sauces or lemon could have saved it. Remarkable to us. Those around us who got burgers or shepherd's pies were happy with them.

We've been to Muir Beach for decades, for fun, for weddings, for a funeral, etc. If and when we come back, we'll probably eat at Pelican Inn again. We just won't order the fish and chips. :-)

Stayed for one night, & enjoyed the experience- albeit very different from the usual hotel/ motel stays with the Inn"s dark woods, dim lighting, narrow stairs & four poster bed. Have the use of 'The Snug' - a sitting room which would be perfect for fireside relaxation on a wintery day.
Would have expected fresh crisp quality linen to be fitting in a place like this, but bed linen was sadly a bit off white, worn & a ripped hole in the sheet.
Guests need to rember they are staying in an Inn with a pub below the guest rooms, so expect noise & frivolities to go on with sounds carrying to the bedrooms. I stayed on a week night, but could surmise it would be noiser still on a weekend.
Dinner was just average; oatmeal breakfast was superb. Disappointing not to have tea or coffee making ability in ones room.
Bedside torch a nice touch, as a long way to the floor from the high bed!

As a family we all strongly recommend this unique pub restaurant and lawns just off Pacific Highway 1.
We went on a Sunday for their buffet lunch but sadly only 30 minutes before they stopped carving. The meat was great, cooked to perfection and as much as one wanted. The mashed spuds and vegetables were on the turn and there were no roasted ones. Sadly a lot of mushroom soup still on offer which spoke for itself!
The history of the place warmed the cockles of our British hearts. At $24 per plate was a little high for what we got but if we had gone earlier our conclusion would I am sure have been more generous.
The staff were friendly although with a tiny reluctance to seat us so late which was due to our late arrival.
The British menu with a few modification looked very interesting and we will go another time and try the calf's liver, or fish and chips, or shepherds pie (they called it stew!).
Great drive on1to get there and well worth the effort but early birds etc......
