I think Pelican Inn's ambience is absolutely delightful. Best for a weekend afternoon when the weather is pleasant. Bring a blanket -- get served outside. Fish and chips is equivalent to the best in London; & in fact, the fries are better. If you like...More

Not recommended. Limited menu and mediocre quality. Brianne the bar maid was great, almost made up for the disappointing food. Nice wine list. Hopefully it was a bad night for the cooks but we won't be back.

The Pelican Inn, a 17th century British pub moved and rebuilt on the edge of Muir Woods. Good cider by the half mug, a ploughman's lunch of cheese, bread, chutney and greens, real fish and chips and good bangers and mash. Pleasant covered patio.
