Thank you Jacqui and Adrian for a great Sunday lunch. Delicious beef, perfect vegetables, delicious wine from Patagonia (a first for me) and the sticky toffee pudding was amazing. Well done with the decor, really comfortable and warm environment with the wood burners going. Will certainly be back soon and will come on a non-Sunday to have Adrian's amazing Fish... More

We bought my mother, son and his girlfriend here for dinner after we had tried it again when it had reopened and had such a lovely meal. Unfortunately it was really disappointing. The fire was lit and was absolutely roaring, far too hot. Menu choice was limited and although I usually have no problem choosing what I wanted but even... More

We had the most delicious Sunday dinner here today; we had the turkey and everything was cooked to perfection with the turkey having a most fantastic flavour... the best we'd had in a long time! Plenty of a variety of different veg as well and wonderful roast potatoes. The desserts were also fabulous. We enjoyed the warm, relaxed ambience of... More

We often stay with relatives and what a fantastic treat to visit here since the revamp and new management. Menu and food were superb, friendly staff and great atmosphere. We loved our anniversary dinner, but also often pop in for a cheeky pint in the afternoon.

This was our second visit, the first being excellent. The restaurant was freezing and some of the food was luke warm. This was mentioned to our server and she offered to heat the food up again rather than replace it which did not appeal so it was not eaten. The waitress had an off hand attitude and consequently we did... More

A business trip, and not my first say. As good as ever, and thoroughly recommended. What more can I say? I wish it was nearer Cumbria!

It was a joke. Small portions, rude staffs, food presentations was poor. When asked for new dessert, the portion was extremely small. Food and service didn't worth 75 pounds. Waiters were not friendly... oh dear. Have a look how our desert was originally served. Thanks. Merry Christmas!

Like many of the other reviewers we came back after the post MPW remodel having walked out during his shambolic reign! It is absolutely lovely - industrial chic in the dining room and traditional in the bar and very very comfortable. Helpful staff and hugely welcoming bar but why oh why would they have such an uninviting limited menu and... More

Stopped for lunch on impulse. Lovely airy dining room with excellent food and good service. The fish and chips were the best ever!

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

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
