Great value pub meal in a quaint pub atmosphere. Good choice of beers and all reasonably priced. Bit hard to find a park but located close to some good accommodation.

The staff is nice and local-so you feel like you walked into someone's family get together. Both times we ate here we ordered the burger paired with on of there beers and we have never gone wrong.

Sadly, a great place to go for beer and music but no longer due to local politics. There is another beer place called the Cambria Beer Co. just off Main St.in the west end. Give it a try! Good local beer but not a lot of choices for those of you that like unique beers.

This was one of my favorite places in Cambria. I often met up with friends here, or made new friends. Alas, it is not more. It closed almost a year ago and has not reopened in a new location. My friends and I miss it.

It felt like a tasting room, not a bar, but it was totally hip, I could see being local and hanging out there and playing a board game, but its a 1 drink stop for a tourist. It was great beer, just a little small for my liking. I guess I need real bar to go to....Alcoholics need seats!!

This was a very nice diversion from what is typically available from at the beach. Nice selection of beers on tap. Very helpful service.

The Cambria Ale House at 2084 Main Street, Cambria, CA is no more. I was there the first week of September 2014. The reviews might be of Cambria Pub and Steakhouse, instead, which was a favorite place of mine, where the cook knows what he's doing, and the owner is offering something different from the other Cambrian restaurants which all...

The bartenders here are always knowledgeable though some are friendlier than others. Atmosphere is clean and beer-centric. Excellent selection of beers that will satisfy almost anyone. The owner is moving the location this month. So, come September or October of 2014 look for them down the street.

We enjoyed our Shepherd's Pie and apple crumble and custard. This pub is well worth a visit with good food on the upper floor and a pub on the ground floor. We would go back again.

This was a nice find. Good crafted beer. The place has improved since we were there two years ago. They expanded their rooms. No food available.
