Review on The Pear Tree Inn
Built in 1750 and once a cider house, this attractive old Cotswold stone inn is part rural hostelry, part breezy modern restaurant with beautiful gardens and a lovely furnished terrace for dreamy al fresco meals. Inside The Pear Tree Inn is equally alluring with flagstone floors, lots of natural materials, beams and log fires – not forgetting a clutch of up-to-date letting rooms. Some areas are set aside for drinkers, who can take their pick from a regularly changing line-up of real ales.
Local materials loom large in the kitchen, but everything is carefully and judiciously sourced – whether it's pork from Downland farm produce, where animals are reared in a natural surroundings all year round or beef from Stokes Marsh Farm. Fish is supplied from British waters by Bridport based Samways and crayfish and salmon comes from Severn & Wye smokery on the edge of the Royal Forest of Dean.
Typical examples from the ever-changing compendium of dishes might be ham hock terrine served with piccalilli and toasted bloomer or juniper and bay home cured organic fed salmon, preserved lemon aioli, poppy seed and cumin focaccia. Main courses offer dishes in the shape of whole Lyme Bay plaice, chunky tartare sauce, salad, pickled vegetables and fat chips or breast of lamb, curly kale, anchovy, caper and mint sauce and baby jackets. Indulgent desserts close the show with a honeyed almond and apricot tart paired with blackberry ice cream or a baked New York cheese cake, walnut and date crunch, boozy prunes and clementine sauce. The wine list is a decent slate with keen prices and a good selection by the glass.
