user reviews of the Pear Tree, Hammersmith

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Went to the Pear Tree for a roast this Sunday gone and ordered the Prawns to start, one came out uncooked and we had to send them back. The two roast lamb (17.95 each) were unedible. The meat (shoulder) was very fatty and there were only three or four mouthfuls of actual meat surrounded by fat. They offered a dessert or glass of wine instead. I don't think I would return for a meal, it seemed over priced. The ladies behind the bar were nice, especially the tall lady with short hair and the dark haired lady. Very pleasant and helpful.

This is a fine local that has been well rehabbed by the new owner. Proper British cuisine and a cheeky approach to serving a pint. This one is a winner.

There should be no sediment with a pasteurised product like Fosters, so my opinion on this is that there were deposits of yeast in the uncleaned beerline which would be dislodged by turbulence caused due to a lack of fluid in the line at the end of the barrel.Sorry, but eon22 is quite correct.

Eon, mate, sediment has nothing to do with clean pipes, it's from the barrel, obviously it was nearing the end and they couldn't have done anything more than give you a free half. Don't worry, I wouldn't expect you to know that, I mean you do drink Fosters after all (maybe best not to advertise that in the future).

I went in there last night before the Fulham v Newcastle game to have a quick pint. I ordered a pint of Fosters that was 3.80p ( for Fosters!!!!!!) and sat down and started to enjoy my drink, whilst enjoying my first few sips of my cold pint I noted that the new owners have made a real effort to spruce this pub up as it used to be a right dive used by Fulham wannabe gangsters.
However on reaching the last third of my pint I noticed sediment in the bottom of my glass! I pointed this out to the bar staff and the young girl did offer me a half-pint to compensate...fair play.
For all the fancy and funky decor you can put in a pub it doesn't make up for one basic standard in the public house trade..................clean pipes!!!!

Went there with a group of friends for dinner on Saturday. Love the interior, very cosy. Good menu but my mains (grey mullet) was very bland - plain boiled potatoes (no butter/herbs) and 2 kale leaves which by its nature can be very tough and sadly they were! Other diners had steak or rack of lamb and feedback from them was excellent. They'd run out of sticky toffee pudding but forgotten to take it of the blackboard but the crumble which we all plumped for instead was delicious. Barman was excellent encouraging us to tase the wines on offer - sadly we had to switch wines twice because they kept on running out of the ones we chose. Better stock control needed.
We had a great evening and would recommend the Pear Tree - I just wish it was my local!

Been there for food 4 times now and have been very pleased each time. Went there for a birthday dinner this week and all 7 of us were very happy with our meals - lots of satisfied noises coming from our table!

Attentive, polite service, nice quiet atmosphere, well kept beers, excellent food (and good value too)...I'd say these guys are doing everything right!

This is now my favourite pub - 10 Jun 2010 12:19
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.

I visited the pear tree last night for a quiet drink and some supper, and all i can say is - what an improvement! i had the unfortunate experience of visiting here before the new owners took it over and they have done a marvellous job with the place, making me pleased to have a new nice local. Definitely try the food here, it is all very good quality dishes with a comforting home made feel. Also, if you just fancy sitting with a book, then this place is ideal - the staff are super friendly, but will happily leave you alone to while away the afternoon.

Definitely recommend it.
