We visit The Pear Tree fairly regularly, it's in a wonderful setting and tastefully decorated. The food is good however the service can be a little hit or miss which is frustrating.

Great ambience - a lovely snug bar, rustic yet stylish dining room, all the food was fantastically tasty - the spiced red cabbage was absolutely delicious! Friendly and helpful staff - all in all totally well worth a visit if your anywhere nearby!

After being closed for over a year The Pear Tree Inn has been carefully restored as a farmhouse kitchen with bar & rooms. It has a relaxed & rustic appeal to the locally sourced menu & reclaimed quirky decor.

An old stone build farmhouse with rug strewn flagstones & reclaimed timber flooring. It features worn wooden tables with mismatched furniture and linen napkins. The Pear Tree Inn will showcase the best local suppliers with a menu guided by the seasons. It also offers overnight guests eight contemporary individually decorated rooms split between the Inn & a beautifully converted barn
