We found this place after hearing via twitter about their comedy night. What a find! A beautifully refurbished inn which feels as if it's miles from anywhere with the friendliest staff I've ever known. We arrived late and were hungry and despite a table of 12 sitting down in the next room and only 3/4 hour until the show they... More

We stop in the Pear Tree fairly regularly, normally whilst walking the dog. The staff are always friendly and the pub itself is lovely. We attended the recent comedy night and will definitely be back for more. The comedy, under the headline MC Jarred Christmas, was excellent. It was very busy but the Pear Tree put on plenty of staff... More

Taken for my birthday dinner and it really didn't disappoint. What a gorgeous setting and the food was delicious. A comment of best burger I've ever had was made.. Skinny chips were excellent, but then so were the fat chips! Service was perfect. Will be coming back

This was our first visit based both upon the recommendation of friends and especially having been repeat customers at the proprietors' previous restaurant in Compton Basset. The Pear Tree did not disappoint and although a somewhat further drive for us now than the previous restaurant, it was well worth it. Wonderful food, excellent service and a very comfortable casual but... More

I remembered the Pear Tree with fond memories and after moving back to the area and hearing a lot of tales of woe about the Pear Tree was eager to revisit after so long. It certainly had changed but it was delightful. It was relaxing, cosy, inviting and welcoming.We had a lovely evening and although a little more expensive than... More

This pub - with a huge car park but looking quaint and compact from the road is like a tardis - it has a lovely interior and the staff are welcoming and friendly. The food was fresh and delicious. They also have some beautifully refurbished accommodation, next time i'd like to stay!

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
