“Great Deli and Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

I recommend trying The Pear Tree as they have a superb selection of food on offer at the deli counter. We only had a coffee and a cake each when we ate here so can't really comment on the food served but what we had was very good.
We did try and then buy some of their excellent range of cheeses and bought other goodies to take home also. The service is very good too.

“Very popular and with good reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Stopped here by chance for lunch when passing through Sherborne and glad we did. Wide choice on the menu, the beef sandwich was the best I'd ever had. Lots of beef, perfectly cooked and deliciously tasty. My wife chose the Chilli Prawn, Mozzarella and Olive toasted sandwich which she said was equally good. The service was friendly and both the food and drinks arrived very quickly. The place was packed, with lots of customers in the Deli too, it's obviously very popular and with good reason.

“Good place for a lunch break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

There was a wide choice of food, including daily specials, for a lunch break or even a main meal. While we were not in a particular hurry, service was slow once we had ordered and we noticed others who arrived after us being served before. When it arrived the food was good.

“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Popped in for a mid-week lunch, and a browse of the fantastic deli section. Very much enjoyed my delicious sandwich - freshly made, and served by smiling, friendly staff. Also picked up a lovely box of Charbonnel et Walker chocolates. Will be returning soon!
