Meal was fantastic but the chocolate and salted caramel tart with honeycomb was very disappointing. Tough chewy and almost inedible. Told the waiter who said she would tell the chef. That was it. Now I don’t expect a Fawlty Towers chef sketch type response but...More

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 .
