For a modestly priced meal this is a good, friendly place to eat. Portions were reasonable and very hot. Not a huge choice and the one dish we wanted was not available. Disappointing that custard was not offered with the sticky toffee pudding but apart from that no complaints.

We'd eaten here previously on our way through the village and had great experiences of lovely food and friendly service. We stopped again for a meal end of November/ early December 2012 and were deeply disappointed. The staff had changed and we later heard the pub is under new management. We presume it was the new landlord serving us and we did not feel particularly well looked after as he came across a bit off hand. Food was poor compared to our previous experiences there. The steaks were fatty, portions smaller and salad old and limp. The worst surprise came when my husband needed to visit the gents. He found it so appalling that we left without using the facilities, and he's not easily shocked! There was urine and solids on the floors and toilet bowls. We were in the pub early in the evening so there was no chance of this being one or two messy customers on the night. Absolutely disgusting and we will most definitely not be going back.

We ate here on a Monday evening in mid-February. We had called in on the preceding Sunday but unfortunately, they don't serve food on Sunday evenings. We both had two courses and shared a bottle of wine, which was free with our steak meals. The tomato and basil soup starter was very thick, tasty and obviously homemade; the pate was also fine. The fillet steaks were cooked as requested. It was very quiet in the restaurant - in fact we were the only diners, so it did lack atmosphere. As this is a pub rather than a restaurant, it lacks some of the finesse in presentation and service you would find in a restaurant but the meal represented value for money. We would recommend for a good pub meal.

Visited the Pear Tree. It was early on a Monday evening. Landlord was friendly and so were the local. I ate in the bar. Food was very good tasty and homemade. They also had a local beer on tap.

The Pear Tree looks like a normal, everyday pub from the outside with a separate entrance for bar area and restaurant. Bar area looked typically pubish, freindly locals etc.
The restaurant side looks re vamped with comfortable seating and a variety of sized tables.
We went to the Pear Tree, 3 females for our monthly get together. It was my turn to choose a venue, I am so glad I chose this pub. (I decided on this venue from the reviews on this site). The food was amazing! The steaks were as good as a well known steak house located on Gloucester Road but at at least half the price. The chef/owner is a brilliant chef. The steaks are sourced locally, chips were just perfect, onion rings were not the usual token size but of giant, award winning size. The desserts, well, I have never tasted such a wonderful banoffee pie, (and I have had one or two in my time) two of us had the same (sirloin steak with a bernaise sauce, banoffee pie) whilst our other friend had the fish & chips and a lemon tart. She loved the fish & chips but has already decided to have the steak next time as we raved about it so much to her. She also said the lemon tart was the best she had tasted. It was all presented so well. As well as a varied steak menu there is a traditional pub style menu as well so lots to choose from. The staff were really nice and friendly but not over the top. Local ales are served with recommendations given if asked. We didn't feel at all rushed but were able to enjoy our meal and drinks at a leisurely pace, we tend to chat quite a bit before deciding on our choice of food.
I have no hesitation to recommend this pub restaurant to everyone who enjoys a good meal in relaxed surroundings. We have already looking forward to our next visit in November and we have plans to take our families over Christmas. Any occasion is a good excuse for a visit, you wont be disappointed.
