Rex Rattus left this review about The Pear Tree

This pub turned out to be much nicer than I thought it would be when I looked at its website. It's nicely carpeted, furnished with large scrubbed dining room tables, plus some normal chairs, settles and more than enough cushions on them. Some of the chairs had blankets draped over them, presumably for use by those customers who feel the cold and for some reason choose to sit outside in the small seating area at the front. A separate room at the back on the right seems to have been incorporated into the pub at some stage.

The bar manager said that the pub dated from 1826, which makes it Georgian. My guess is that some of the internal features might be the result of a Victorian refit - such as the ancient horseshoe shaped bar counter and the glazed screening behind the servery. Both of the entrances are surmounted by grillwork proclaiming the name of the pub.

They had three Wye Valley beers on, as a result of the landlady hailing from that part of the world. They were HPA (£2.20 a half), Same Again, and Butty Bach. The reversed Doom Bar clip represented no great loss. Main courses were £14 upwards, and I didn't notice any pub grub. The Sunday roast for a tenner is probably the best bet.There were jars of nuts, plus a large brass bowl containing packets of crisps, on the bar counter, and a vase of lillies on the stillion.

I quite liked this pub despite its gastro credentials. That might be because the landlady was engaging, and I was in at early doors when it was very quite, and I'm not sure that it would be quite so comfortable when it gets busy. A couple of the tables were very large - 8 or 10 seaters - and might well attract large and noisy groups. But that's pubs for you!

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Pear Tree

Curiously-shaped building, with large windows which have been painted (not very well, in my opinion) with stylistic pear trees. Inside, a large horseshoe-shaped bar dominates the main room, leaving less room for seating than one might expect. However, there is also a smaller room to the rear and a reasonable-looking courtyard out back. Three handpumps, dispensing Pride (£3.30, and in good condition), Old Speckled Hen and Doom Bar. The chalkboards outside make it clear that food is a priority here, but not too bad a place for a pint either.
