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

    Best little English Pub in California! It is such a quaint respite close to San Francisco and Muir Woods

    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.

    Great place to grab a Guinness post hike

    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

    Darts and snakebites are the perfect ending to a day at Stinson Beach :)

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

    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

    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.

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

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

    Remarkably authentic British pub. Come and waste the day away on the lawn.

    Have a delicious pint of beer after a long hike!

    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.

    They have recently installed ADA compliant ramps and bathroom stalls!! :-)

    Try the Shepherd's Pie - #kvpinmybelly : Best dish for a rainy day by the beach. Yum!!

    Great beer selection for a small pub!

    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

    genuine atmosphere!

    Get the Pelican Inn Pale Ale, brewed by Lagunitas. You won't be disappointed.

  • Richard S.

    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!

    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

    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!

    Monday nights Buckshee menu has smaller plates for reduced prices and specials on beer!
