Not sure if this is new but I never noticed it before. Itís right on highway 1 in Half Moon Bay. They have this cool double decker bus outside with some neon beer signs in the windows. Inside is kind of dark but kind of British pub-like with the old wooden furniture and some over the top British decor like the phone booth and some other stuff. Inside is a decent tap list. Not amazing but they do have several good IPAs like Drakes and Marin. Of course they have crap like Guinness but there are some good choices. The food looked kind of lame, sort of Dennyís-esque but I didnít try it. I was happy with a Drakes IPA. The server was really nice and chatted up all 3 of the patrons at the bar, which is very small and only seats about 5. Iíd consider stopping back in when in Half Moon Bay. Maybe Iíll have to do a bit of a pub crawl on the bicycle starting at Half Moon Bay Brewing and heading south to Cameronís and Highway 1 Brewing. Oh hell, might as well start at Golden Gate Park at Beach Chalet and make it a nice round 50 mile trip. Yeah, I think Iíll do that one of these days.

Interesting British style pub on the Pacific coast just outside of Half Moon Bay proper. Beer list pretty boring, but several British/Irish beers and a few decent enough West coast brews in the mix. Not so excited about the food; I send mine back twice, and I almost never complain. On the plus side, it is certainly kid friendly, and with 19 taps it is almost assured you will find something worth drinking.
