Would not bother going. Arrived at 7 pm for booking and asked to wait as table not ready. That was fine. Were seated and ordered drinks. That was fine. Ordered our food and from there things went downhill. Waited for an hour before our entrees arrived. When mentioned the long wait time to our waitress, she said it was because... More

Went with my mum and partner for light food and wine around 2pm on a sunday afternoon (the inside part was all booked out but that was fine because we wanted to sit out in the sun anyway and there were plenty of tables free outside).

Beautiful location, quite & tranquil, lovely and peaceful. My partner and I came here for dinner & throughly enjoyed ourselves. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner the service was very professional & you were always greeted with a smile. We will definitely return to this spot.

We stopped into this lovely restaurant for a morning coffee and a delicious cinnamon scone with jam and cream before heading out for the 4km walk to Rainbow Falls. The coffee was so good we decided to return for a late lunch. I ordered their version of eggs Benedict, at $20 I thought it was overpriced for poached eggs, bacon... More

The Pear Tree is a wonderful place for me to meet with my wedding clients. Quiet, tranquil and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Try their Beer battered Fries for a very yummy treat. Accompany them with a wine or beer and you will really enjoy your time.

Slightly disappointed with our evening meal here. The food was pretty standard and I had a chicken burger and it was on the over chargrilled side so slightly burnt. Our waitress was not very friendly and barely spoke to us but the lady we paid was nice.

Went to The Pear Tree for a birthday dinner. Hadn't been for a long time due to bad service, looks like we won't try it again either. Waitress didn't smile, couldn't remember who ordered what, even with single drink orders. Took 30 minutes to take our order, entree for 1 person who ordered was 20 min, then another 30 min... More

Can not beat the location. Food was superb. Fresh tasty. Staffing levels low over Easter and clearly those on waiting duty not fully trained yet. Hopefully when this is sorted Pear Tree returns to top notch as chef deserves. :-)

A surprisingly robust menu that ends up giving a lot of options. The portions are good and the food is very much worth the fare. I will always go back.
