Here’s what Mumbler say:

“Just had lunch at pear tree!! Oh how I’ve missed you. Tables all spread out. You get seated and you order from the app but you can order at the bar if you wish. You get called up to the carvery when it’s your turn and they plate up the food for you. Someone constantly walking round cleaning tables and door handles. Staff wearing masks. Obviously play area isn’t open. We’ve had a good time and the food was lush as always.”

“We went to pear tree farm and it was brilliant we booked a table 2 hours before downloaded an app ordered food on the app the food arrived- some had carvery we were told when to line up it had a screen around the chef went along and plated it up. Couldn’t fault the service and safety x”

‘I like the way you can build your child’s meal with several options in each category, main, vegetables & carbs, reasonable price & the option of 2 different portion sizes.’

‘I find it a quick and friendly service which is great with little ones! They are generally really good with kids and have colouring pencils at the ready along with high chairs. I have a 20month old who doesn’t sit for long and we are able to actually sit and enjoy our meal in there’
