The acclaimed Marco Pierre White brings his unmistakable blend of innovation and tradition to the Pear Tree Inn. A delightfully cosy rural setting is the stage for bold European recipes and classic British fare, with al fresco seating to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings.

Diners are treated to a picture postcard setting for the Pear Tree Inn restaurant, which is one of a traditional English countryside building. Exposed stone walls and wooden beams feature throughout, with antique agricultural implements on the wall, and crackling fireplaces throughout. Natural light floods in to the main dining room, with cosy, intimate nooks by the bar offering a more secluded setting.

Recipes on the Pear Tree Inn menu combine the very best in English and French cooking. Gourmet starters of quails’ eggs and hot foie gras give way to fresh seafood classics like Wheeler’s fish pie. There are a range of braised and grilled meats like honey roast pork, and an irresistible dessert list to finish.

Filled with traditional charm, Pear Tree Inn Whitley is an ideal gourmet rural getaway.

    My friend and I were the only ones in the restaurant and only two were in the bar. I expected more diners and a better menu considering Marco Pierre White is associated with the hotel. We travelled a fair distance and we're looking forward to it. We had a T-bone steak and it was very thin. The charge for veg was a bit cheeky but hey ho!

    This restaurant was recommended by friends, and I must admit we were a bit sceptical, we have eaten at some excellent restaurants both home and abroad, and I have to say we were not disappointed, hence we have now been back 3 times, the food is excellent , real value for money, the location is lovely, and the service we can't praise enough, everytime we have been , we have never been let down, the staff are very highly trained and a real credit to Marco Pierre-Whites team.

    This will remain in my memory as one of the worst dining experiances, we have ever had the mis-fortune to experiance. The "Restaurant" had no heating whatsoever, which meant that ourselves and all our fellow diners had to wear jerseys and coats to try and keep warm. We arrived at 1.00pm , as arranged, and our Drinks and Starters (Soup and Mackeral) arrived promptly after ordering. At this point, everything started going downhill. We had to wait a further hour for the Main course, after having being told that our initial order had been lost, but when it did finally arrive, it was hot, well presented and of a very high standard. Some of our crockery was removed once we had finished our main course, but the remaining dirty plates and glasses were left on out table, until we were asked if we wished to order our desserts, approximately 45 minutes later. The desserts finally arrived, and once again, were of a very high standard. We then asked for the Bill, and some twenty minutes later,were told that they wouldn't be able to issue it as the Till had broken down. This was eventually issued ,without apology, handwritten on the back of a scrap of used menu. We did not provide a Tip, the first time I can remember not doing so. We arrived at just before 1.00pm and left just after 5.30pm. As we left, I said to one of the " Waitresses" the least you could do is say Goodbye. The silence was deafening. I understand that I'm not allowed to issue an inflammatory statement, but I would venture to suggest that one of MPW's people might like to review the above Dining Experience. We will never return.

    Lunch. Arrived at 1215 and had real trouble getting in! Entrance is forbidding and there is no longer a path to the front door, which was still locked. Finally found grass area with tables and french windows into the dining room. Food was good and fish perfectly cooked. Duck leg also good but smoked haddock fishcake had too little fish in it.

    Stayed 2 days. Dinners were acceptable but nothing out of the ordinary. Breakfast on 1st day was limited but the cooked breakfast was very good. We had the same choices on the second day and that was bad - it all depends on the cook. The dining room was very cold. There was only a small fan heater for the whole room and this was not put on on the second day's breakfast. The bar was very cold. I had to get a warm coat because I was shivering. There was no heating on at all. The bar has no comfortable seating. The only seats are stools. There are two dining rooms. On the second evening whilst one dining room had just one couple in it, a large party of seven people ( enjoying themselves, and why not?) we're seated in the dining room with several couples. Whenever this group conversed or laughed it was not possible to hear what one's companion was saying.
