The Pear Tree at Purton

Church End, PURTON, Swindon, SN5 4ED

2 rosettes

Not a village pub as the name might suggest, but in fact a former vicarage turned into a country-house hotel. Situated in glorious gardens that extend to a meadow, wetlands and a vineyard, the place has been run by the same family for 25 years and is geared up to cater for business meetings, weddings, and anyone looking to escape to the country. The restaurant has made an impression with its take on contemporary British food, and the charm of its conservatory setting. There's no shortage of global flavours on the menu - as is the modern British way - so starters run to smoked chicken timbale fired up with wasabi and pickled ginger, or a chicken breast served satay style. There's a refinement to the kitchen's output: the anything-but-humble pear and celeriac soup (with horseradish cream and sage oil), and main-course roasted loin of cod with an accompanying r?sti enriched with fresh crab. Finish with a nicely tart glazed lemon tart. Check out the cuv?e Alix produces on the owners' own vineyard.
