Cuddle Up by the Fire
Try the Pelican Inn Pub, Muir Woods.
Los Angeles Magazine May 2001 “This slate-roofed hideaway tucked in a valley at the center of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area is so saturated in British hostelry tradition that in each of the seven guest rooms a tiny stone with a hole hangs over the bed to ward off witches and rickets. By day, guests can explore nearby hiking trails, catch some sea mist at rugged Muir Beach, and then refuel on prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, and cottage pie in front of the fireplace. At night--after a round of pilsners and darts in the paneled Tudor bar--they retire to snug rooms filled with English antiques, heavily draped canopy beds, and worn Persian rugs. Morning brings a copper vase of fresh flowers outside the door and a classic English breakfast of bacon and eggs, bangers, and grilled tomatoes.”
