Having stayed in many "corporate" hotels in the last few months it was lovely to be greeted personally at reception and shown to the room without a hand out for a tip! The room was a little dated but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bar is quirky especially as it fills with guests pre-dinner however the choice of beverage... More

Beautiful, light and airy conservatory restaurant. Very efficient, attentive friendly service, without being imposing. High quality ingredients cooked to a high standard presented and served with panache. We've had family functions at the Pear Tree on numerous occasions and this one was up to their usual high standards. A quaint rural stone building set in the Wiltshire countryside, well presented...

The Pear Tree has always been my go to place when planning any special dining experience. I do not know if the management has changed but this is not the same Restaurant which I have personally put at the top of my list for years. The canapes with the pre-dinner drinks have disappeared, the tables were not as dressed up... More

The food and service here used to be top notch, the food is still great but the service has deteriorated and isn't the polished service it used to be. This visit was the worst we ever experienced and on such a special night as well. When we arrived at reception the receptionist seemed very confused. We asked for drinks in... More

Six couples gathered on the terrace at 12 with Pimms and other drinks to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Day. Our orders were taken as we chatted on the terrace with no fuss. The three courses were enjoyed by all and our chosen wines were served professionally. Coffee and sweets followed then we all wandered around the lovely garden chatting more... More

Sadly after 21 years of celebrating our wedding anniversary with a meal here this will be our last. Things have changed so much since we first started eating here, whether its because of management changes,economic reasons or both, we are not sure? Although the price has stayed the same, this year we had no cocktail stirrers in our drinks, we... More

We were looking forward to our meal at the Pear Tree, but were quite disappointed. Apart from the head waiter, the waiting staff were very amateur. The menu was full of fancy descriptions, but apart from the beef fillet which was very good, the food did not meet expectations: the starters were very average and the sea bream was greasy.... More
