“A very nice relaxed lunch”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We visited The Pear Tree today (Saturday) for lunch. It was fairly busy, but there were still two or three tables left. The menu was fairly modern, and included what you might call 'posh-pub' food: Wild Boar burgers, home made tortellini, Chilli Con Carnie (which I had, and was made with large chunks of steak rather than mince which gave it a very luxurious quality) there were also a lot of very yummy sounding salads and sandwiches which, on a warmer day in the future, I hope to try. There was plenty of choice without there being too much that it takes an age to choose. We have no qualms about the service, it was very friendly and helpful. We will most certainly return, perhaps we shall enjoy a dinner or lunch or even a relaxed lazy Saturday morning breakfast.

“OK breakfast”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Had breakfast there on a Sunday morning. It was not very crowded and I placed our order at the bar and the drinks and food are served to the table. It took about 20 minutes for the teas to arrive and about another 10 minutes for the food to arrive. I had to ask the waitress to wipe the (dirty) table. She would have put the cups on the table. I ordered Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. The eggs were perfectly cooked but the muffin was barely toasted and the hollandaise sauce definitely from a jar. The toast with the full English breakfast was also barely toasted. The tea came in glass cups which I find strange for a traditional cuppa. We had one regular and one large tea - different size cups but one tea bag floating in each cup. There are so many places to go for a really good breakfast that I probably wouldn't go back and although the waitress behind the bar who took the order was nice and smiley, the service waitress didn't look happy about working on Sunday morning!

“Dragged down by very poor service (average food)”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The service is regularly poor. Two people cleaning glasses, and serving other employees, while one struggles to deal with all the paying customers. Seriously guys, basics.

“Great atmosphere terrible service!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Great atmosphere. Terrible service. Waited for 15minutes while 2 people "looked busy" behind the bar while one person struggled to deal with the cue. Very disappointed.

I have been to the pear tree several times and every time it has been lovely. The food is simple but delicious. There is a good, relaxing and welcome atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
