Hours and Location

A Farmhouse Kitchen

Modern, imaginative cooking, a great local drink & stunning rustic rooms

A Farmhouse Kitchen with rooms, tucked away in rural Whitley near Melksham, 25 minutes from Bath. With eight contemporary individually decorated en suite double rooms split between the Inn & a beautifully converted barn. An old stone build farmhouse with rug strewn flagstones & reclaimed timber flooring, featuring worn wooden tables with mismatched furniture. The Pear Tree showcases the best local suppliers with a menu guided by the seasons. Beyond the flagstoned bar are two dining areas; the garden room, adjacent to a secluded courtyard; and a large open sunroom with exposed beams and adjacent garden terrace.

Offerings from the Pantry Team

We buy our ingredients from local farmers and growers that we know personally and we don't buy out of season! Our menus change regularly to make the most of the fresh crop and local specialities with all of our meat being free range and traceable right back to the animal itself. All of our fish is caught in British waters with a 24 hour port-to-plate policy and our free range eggs come only from Happy Chickens. To top it off, we bake all of our bread, cakes and biscuits in our kitchen every day as well as producing our own seasonal jams, chutneys and ice creams.

Stay with us

Rest easy in our Perfectly Tranquil inn

Comfort and style sums up the eight contemporary bedrooms, all named after varieties of pears and split between the inn and a beautifully converted barn. For exposed beams, mullion windows and rural views, stay in the inn, otherwise choose the converted barn for upholstered easy chairs, striking statement pear motif wall coverings and fired earth tiled bathrooms.
