The Pear Tree sits behind Margravine Cemetery in the middle of low-rise council blocks – an oasis of comfortable calm in an unexpected location. The pub changed hands lately and has benefited from a refurbishment, with the main room centred on a horseshoe bar; adjoining is a back room used chiefly for dining (Sunday roasts provide punctuation on a food menu that reprises many gastropub favourites), and then a small, pear-tree-shaded garden complete with an area inspired by Moroccan boudoirs.
Timothy Taylor Landlord and Old Speckled Hen seem the best draught options, with a standard wine selection of ten options of each colour all sold by the glass. The drinks list may not be impressive, but the garden makes this worth a special trip.

This pub is a total gem. When we lived near Baron's Court it was a home from home. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere, that's cosy but not too cramped with a nice terraced garden outside. The food is really really nice, but it is a bit expensive. Probably not for what it is though. Nice cuts of meat, proper helpings of veg, excellent chips. The beer and wine list is also really good. The decor is all candlelit and lovely plus there are a couple of fireplaces to sit near during the winter too. Plus they provide nice rugs and blankets if it gets a little chilly (which it basically never does). The crowd are a mix of students from the nearby hospital, and happy locals.
I love the Pear Tree! I always have such a relaxing time there. The pub is really cosy with it's warm fire over winter and the garden beer in summer. The food is delicious too and nicely presented. I would be their best customer if I lived close by, unfortunately I have to wait until I see my friend in Fulham to pay a visit. If you don't live too far I would recommend as you'll definitely have a great dinner.
