Marco Pierre White The Pear Tree Inn

Top Lane, WHITLEY, Melksham, SN12 8QX

This wisteria-clad stone pub epitomises the best of modern interior design, from the beautifully crafted furniture to the positioning of the stone ginger beer jars. Even so, farmhouse character remains, from the flagstone floors to the grand open fires and eclectic collection of agricultural artefacts. Like other inns belonging to Mr White, it offers a carefully selected worldwide wine list and The Governor ale, named after the celebrity chef's family greyhound. Dine in the bar, restaurant or peaceful gardens on British and European dishes chosen from a menu that differentiates itself by offering not starters, but hors d'oeuvres, such as Maxim's quail eggs; petit chou farci l'ancienne (stuffed cabbage); and Wheeler's (of St James's) pea and ham soup. The quality continues with wing of skate with winkles and jus la Parisienne; Mr Lamb's shepherd's pie; and caramelised honey-roast pork belly with Marco Polo glaze. Accommodation is available.
