We had the most wonderful night, the cottage was amazing every detail of it pastries in your room down to a decanter of Port fresh eggs tomatoes and delicious bread, The food in the restaurant was a wonderful experience which we will never forget, the French chef is amazing I don't how he fits everything in, he has a an amazing passion for food and tells you every detail of your 7 course taster menu which was fabulous & the wines that accompany each course, the staff are lovely, the french ambiance is beautiful. Thank you so much for an amazing time. Penny & Steve Sears

Absolutely outstanding meal and experience - the tasting menu is sublime, the flight of wines was perfect and the ambiance was wonderful. We had a BRILLIANT time. Don’t expect a small bill, but accept the quality of what you experience far outweighs the investment!!!

It’s alway a pleasure to eat at the Pear and Olive. We had lunch there after our very tiny wedding. Just four of us. The food was exquisite as usual and the very personal service from Gael was exceptional. Thank you. We will be back.

Really loved eating here once again, really lovely food , nice ambience even with only 3/4 tablesat lunch, great banter,new lady Elle looking after us very well. Only point I would make is that initially drinks service was a bit slow, but I think they had to change the barrel. Will be back soon!

There are options for all budgets here with both fine dining and an outside wood-fired pizza oven. Beautiful location and food. I would recommend The Pear and Olive both as a destination venue for special occasions and also somewhere to stop and have a beer and a bite en route.

We love this little place in Hildersham. It’s a quirky, fun vibe, the staff are super and the food is delicious - would recommend the ribs! We went on a rainy Sunday, sat outside and it was lovely and cosy.

A lovely evening in a hearty English village pub. The flat bread pizzas are luxurious and service delightful. A well thought out unfussy menu caters for all. Wagu burgers, rack of ribs, monkfish in prosciutto all on the menu but we didn’t have room for 2 mains! Draft beers on tap and a novice wine list too. Time to book our next visit!

Good food and lead waitress but small touches missing such as condiments water the correct cutlery, just needs staff training. Sadly evening was rather let down as in conservatory with people walking through and most of all tv going on halfway through our meal for football which we did not expect - now know better!

Having been a few years ago and had a wonderful experience, unfortunately it didn’t reach my expectations, it was very cold inside which didn’t provide the cosy experience, when we left we saw that the back door was wide open hence we were sitting in a draught on what was a very chilly weekend. The food was good though, just the ambience was not there, very cold.
