My partner and I were staying in the area for a long weekend away and thought we would pop to The Pear Tree for an easy dinner on a summers evening. We were looking for somewhere we could have a couple of drinks and dinner in the sun. When we arrived it was so pretty and the garden was lovely... More

We have almost completed our stay at the Pear Tree inn. It was a special deal with two nights B&B plus evening meals. Which was very good value. Our room is delightful but there are nasty brown streaks around the rim and in the loo and we arrived to another's hair in the bath and on the floor. The young... More

We have been to the restaurant a few times and seen many changes of owner, it did have a fantastic reputation many years ago and and new the owners business enjoyed their success until it was obvious they could not replicate the previous standards. We were a large group who came for Sunday roast and and found the food to... More

We went there to see what the food was like before making decision for where to take my husband, family and friends for birthday bash. For a restaurant with Marco Pierre White connection, one would expect if not an excellent place to eat, at least good but it turned out to be a somewhat bistro eating place. Very disappointed indeed.... More

Not as expensive as you'll expect from a Marco Pierre W. restaurant. beautiful quality and rather large servings. A comprehensive list of wines is also available.

This was great value - it was a Living Social deal. We paid £179 for 2 nights B&B plus dinner in the Pear tree on the first night and the Rudloe Arms the second night. We had a nice time but the service was a bit odd at times. For example, my boyfriend went to the bar and got himself... More

Just because a restaurant carries the name of a famous (celebrity) chef - in this case Marco Pierre White, doesn't mean you are going to get a great experience. The location of this pretty pub is nice with what could be beautiful gardens full of guess what? Peat Trees! However the lawns were overgrown and made the place looked uncared... More

Well Marco, this is a lovely restaurant/bar in a lovely quiet and peaceful location and your staff are well trained and attentive but...... We loved the starters, different pates with fresh bread and a fantastic salad accompaniment that came compliments of the chef. I ordered battered haddock and my wife had the chicken. My portion of fish was ginormous on... More

Where to start? This beautiful old pub around 3 miles away from PMW Rudloe Arms was our destination for our second night of the LS break.If you are staying at the Rudloe and opt to leave the car behind & take a cab be prepared for a very salty taxi fare! We were charged Sunday rate 2 on the outward... More
