The Pear Tree Inn dates back to at least the early 1800’s.
The Pear Tree was downsized and remodelled into the Pear Tree Micro Pub.
The Pear Tree retains a ‘West Country Ales’ ceramic plaque and a rare ‘West Country’ pub sign bracket.
Unfortunately the Pear Tree Micro Pub closed for business early in 2022 and it thought this may be permanent.
