We stopped in at the Pear Tree without having a booking for dinner or a room, we had simply left home Friday morning with a list of a few places off the Alistair Sawday website.
It wasn't just a pleasant surprise it was a wonderful shock!
First the food is fantastic, they have a reputation and deserve it. Great wines too. Lovely pub atmosphere and that carries through into the restaurant.
We decided to ask for a room and althogh it wasn't inexpensive, at 100/night for two it's not super pricey either. And the room was probably the nicest I have ever had outside a 4 or 5-star hotel. It was gorgeous. Plush but not overdone. Comfy but still upscale.
The bathroom was also terrific and included Molton Brown goodies. The breakfast was a big spread of cold stuff plus breads/muffins and a cooked English breakfast with anything we wanted on top of all that. Amazing.
The staff was so warm and friendly we wanted to stay longer, but I'm spending $ (yikes) and we had somewhere else to be. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I hope I can find a reason to return.
I'll try to post a picture too.
