A wedding to remember

We were thrilled to be at the Pear Tree for a wedding in March 2015. The meals and service provided by the Pear Tree were just amazing and they deserve a special mention on Trip Advisor.

I can see why this restaurant has mixed reviews. On my previous visit and review I enjoyed my visit, but not this time. We took overseas visitors who wanted to try oysters. The menu on the website showed oysters were on the menu. First disappointment - no sign of oysters. I questioned the waitress who said this was the new... More

We used to visit this establishment regularly. Frequent changes of head chef have done little to improve things. Our latest visit was really awful. The service was poor, despite the fact that there were few customers and the food ws very poor and relatively expensive.

Stopped in for a quick bite of lunch, presented with a stunning view while I ate my very good burger, home-made fries. It was very good ... will eat here again

A rare Easter Monday treat with children and friends. I was served by a steely brunette and purchased small overpriced cakes. She asked me a number of abrupt questions for each cake; butter or cream additions to which I said no thank you. A smile would have been nice!!! I was a bit shocked by her service manner. My cakes...

We had been here a couple of years ago and had a good experience. However, this time around (celebrating a birthday) we found the menu much reduced and a lack of interest in catering for one of our number who had some food intolerances. In addition, some dishes were particularaly disppointing (e.g the clam chowder with bacon was more bacon... More

We had our wedding here in late March and it was just the most amazing venue for this. Stephanie, who assisted us in the lead up with organisation and preparation at the Pear Tree was simply superb - she was very accommodating and supportive. On the day the staff at the Pear Tree were AMAZING. They were so lovely and... More

A wet day and we went in for a bite and some shelter. A warm welcome, a delicious shared meal, and something to quench our thirst, and we were ready to look around the Stone House and then the drive back to Paihia

The food was very good as was the service provided by the Swedish waitress from Ystad. The best thing is the view of Kerikeri Inlet and the Old Stone Store.

After finishing our walk near Stone House got hungry It was 3 pm. and chef wasn't there . We decided to have cold beer chips and pickles. To my surprise pickles were steaming hot. Perhaps waitres should be told that not everything should be microwaved.
