My husband and made the Pear Tree our "special place" to celebrate, our first visit (for dinner) having convinced us it was a lovely venue with (and is of crucial importance to us) attentive and professional service. Our second visit was somewhat less than memorable, we were left waiting in the bar for approx 45 mins before being offered a... More

We had our work Christmas do at the Pear Tree. We had our pre-dinner drinks in the Library which is a nice cosy space before heading through to the restaurant. The service was very good, we had a nice spacious table and the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed the evening very much.

Reasonably priced menu with plenty of choice. Unrushed service. With attentive but unnoticed staff. Excellent wine list. Though must recommend the Pear Trees own produce from the Vineyard at the bottom of the garden.

To begin with I would like to say we have had excellent meals here in the past but this evenings meal and total experience was such a let down. We will never go again! We started with Kir Royals at the bar which were lovely. Good start to my wife birthday meal. My wife had warm smoked Chicken timbale which... More

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
