“A wonderful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We discovered this lovely inn whilst looking for somewhere nice to have Sunday lunch. On entering the bar,we were greeted very warmly by a very nice gentleman who gave us a choice of different areas to dine in. The menu is interesting and varied with unusual choices for vegetarians.
We opted for the traditional Sunday roast,my husband having the roast rib of beef,which he claimed was excellent and my daughter and I chose the roast turkey,which came as thick slices of succulent breast on a creamy mash with roast potatoes & nicely cooked vegetables. Even though we did not arrive until after 2pm,our meals tasted as fresh as if they had just been cooked and we will certainly look forward to our next visit.Highly recommended if you are in the vicinity and well worth a little travelling to dine here. We also noticed on our way out that there is a little private area with a large table for 10 - ideal for a family get together,which we are planning. All the staff were pleasant and efficient and made us feel very welcome.

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Myself and my husband called here on Saturday the 6th April 2013 and was surprised how much it had changed. The staff were very helpful we had a choice of tables as this was a mid afternoon visit. We chose a table by the wood burner which was lovely very warming ordered our drinks and food. We chose the board for two a very hearty ploughman's with a side order of chips. When our meal arrived we were very pleased with what was on the board we got ham; beef; pork pie; cheese; bread; onions; relish; and sliced apple. The chips were home made and very morish, the only downside if there was one is the drinks are quite pricey but the food was very reasonable priced. This is a pub we will visit again.

Visited The Hazel Pear last night for the first time since the refurb it has been done to such a high standard it's gorgeous so homely and welcoming! The staff can't do enough for you and the food is beautiful presented well, tasted lovely and a great menu and wine selection.
Would recommend anyone to go we will certainly be back very soon

“Nice homely pub grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit for very many years, wow what a transformation, beautifully restored old country pub. We arrived early doors and were given a warm and friendly welcome, great pint of bitter to start. Our starters took a little while to arrive but when they did were just as expected simple and tasty . Mains were very nice I had the steak pie , pastry was exceptionally tasty, could have done with a bit more meat. My wife's steak perfectly cooked ,tender and flavoursome. The home made chips scrumtious just like mum used to do. We had a bottle of delicious mellow Argentinian malbec.the bill was what we would expect to pay anywhere for a meal of that sort the service was warm and friendly. All in a nice meal we will be back.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Fourth visit and for the first time I was a bit disappointed. The menu was a bit dull, most mains were standard ' meat and two veg' affairs and nothing jumped out at me as a 'must try' main course. Shared a whitebait starer which was overlooked and tasted of deep fried coating only. My wife's haddock and chips were good but my SINGLE fillet of sea bass(£12.95) was a let down and rather expensive for what it was. Will probably give this place a miss for a while and then go back to see if any of their customers constructive feedback has been heeded
