    Cute country inn with history. You could excused for thinking of being in England. You can sit and eat out on the grass, or just drink a few. Food and beers won't rock your world, but the setting will

    Brilliant Fish n' Chips. Plus Magner's Cider, one of my favourites on those rare hot days when living in London. Fantastic place to nip in for a pint and a bite on a hot or cold day in Muir Beach.

    A true Marin gem. A traditional English country house off of Muir Beach and Muir woods. Come for the vibe, the fish & chips, and the cask ale.

    Pelican Inn is a great mid-hike stop on a 9.7 mile out-and-back hike from Tennessee Valley. Nothing like a beer on the green when its warm or a hot chocolate when it's cold to break up a long trek. Read more

    It is so special to sit on manicured lawns alongside a Tudor cottage sampling cask ales and bangers and mash as you approach one of the finest wine regions in the world. Read more

    The Fish & Chips reign supreme, but the Shepherd's Pie is also fantastic.

    Order their Belgian ale and a ham sandwich and eat outside on the lawn after hiking one of the nearby trails :)

    Despite what other tips say there is no cask ale. It's all keg. Some great beer options though, both draft and bottled.

    Atmosphere of this place is incredible, such a cozy, old inn. The fish and chips were great.

    A bit pretentious, but a pleasant enough attempt at an English country pub. The menu is small but well done. They also have Paulaner beer in stock!

    Feels rather like an English inn in the middle of CA. Authentic beer selection and good chips.

    Wonderful ambiance and beer. Try the mussels--you won't leave hungry or disappointed. After beer, stroll on the beach and see the redwoods. A great day away from the bay!

    They stop serving lunch at 3 and no dinner service until 5:30, so just pub fare. Pub fare menu is limited with no burger and fries, which in my mind is standard pub food. Service was okay.

    Fish and chips taste as good as back home. They even have HP but stay away from the London Pride. It's nothing like it should be
