We booked this as a birthday treat for my mum, about 3 hours before we got there my sister and I decided to phone and ask if they could do something a little special in the room, they were more than accommodating and said they would. Once we arrived we were greeted by a lovely lady who I believe to... More

We spent one night at this lovely country Inn due to it's convenient location to the Bath Christmas market. The pub is great with a welcoming wood-burning stove and a nice selection of draught local ales and ciders. The decor is very country-pub/rustic with oak beams and floors and plaid fabrics. The overall feel is very cosy and was great... More

We go here once every so often for dinner. It's a reliable staple local pub and the food is usually good. It's changed hands several times and is presently marketed as a family oriented pub, which suits some more than others. It's more casual now than it used to be but the food is still good. We've had a few... More

We visited the Pear Tree again after we heard things had improved considerably after the Marco Pierre White disastrous period! We were given a warm welcome - the hotel has been returned to its former glory i.e. A quaint country hotel/ pub! The rooms are clean and very comfortable. We had dinner with four of our friends. The menu offered... More

I visited for lunch yesterday with a colleague and on approach the building is very impressive with plenty of car parking and pleasant surroundings. We ate in the bar area but there is a very nice restaurant at the back of the building. I ordered bubble & squeak topped with a poached egg & hollandaise sauce which was delicious and... 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
