Nothing pretentious about this place, lovely location and if the weather is good you can sit outdoors. The staff are super and helpful and its very relaxed. Reasonable prices, you can just chill out.

We had a beautiful meal at the Pear Tree. Started with bread and dips, the hummus dips were very nice but the bread was a bit too thinly cut. We saw the table next to us had ordered seafood chowder and it looked really good so decided to share a bowl. It was very good, one of the best I've... More

My husband and I stopped here for afternoon tea, the scones were divine and it was a lovely relaxing location to dine. Others were having lunch and we will go back another time for that as it looked and smelt wonderful.

Came for dinner and we both had the fish of the day which was blue fin. Was cooked very nicely. Sides were good but not great. Prices were on the high side but reasonable.

Was here a couple of years ago and it was quite good, but it's gone down hill. The food is very averidge and service is only ok. A shame on such a lovely setting.

The food here was beautiful and reasonably priced, the outdoor atmosphere is great too. The only issue-which is a real shame because everything else was perfect- is that our waitress was a bit rude.

After hearing not so good reviews recently we were a bit apprehensive about eating here. It turned out that the food was fantastic, service very quick and staff lovely. Would definitely go back.

Loved the food and service was great but no atmosphere, music for the main room and veranda was from the kitchen and did not make it any better.
