Eclectic collection of seating areas. Looks like a real English pub in the main room, and outdoor areas range from California to kitsch.

Beer: a choice of about a dozen beers on tap, ranging from English standards to local microbrews. More available in bottles.

Food: nothing special, based on one meal. More variety than available at many English pubs.

Service: friendly and efficient.

Worth a stop if you're in HMB.

What a place. Sitting just outside of the city of Half Moon Bay, Cameron's takes up several acres of land with its inn, pub, London buses, and huge outdoor area filled with picnic tables and playground equipment. It calls itself the Disneyland of pubs, and I must say that there's a lot to look at and do.

Several large rooms decorated with beer and English signage. Pinball machines at a few points. A second smaller bar in another room of the main room with the main bar. A foosball table, darts, a shuffleboard, a stage fill up space. The London buses sitting outside are apparently used for smokers. You could tell the owner put a lot of effort into creating this funhouse of a pub.

The beer is a mere sideshow to this one of a kind pub. There are 20 beers on-tap and over 60 in the bottle/can. Although a good chunk are from big brewers, there are splashes of goodies found on-tap (Deschutes, Full Sail, Mad River, Fuller's) and in the bottle/can (Murphy's, Czechvar). All I saw were shaker pint glasses, which was a dissapointment to see in an English-style pub, but with my London Pride tasting fresh and decorating the glass with lacing, I wasn't complaining much. The $4 pint of it during happy hour ($5 normally) was a sigh of relief to the wallet.

While it may not appear as a magnet for beer geeks, the character of Cameron's alone is reason enough to visit this place.
