Lodged right on the edge of the river, with a historic view of The Stone Store, sits the Pear Tree Restaurant & Bar. It’s got a gigantic veranda surrounding it, where you can sit in the summers shade and check out the Thursday night paddle boarders while you enjoy a beverage. It’s perfect for kids too, as they have a huge front yard leading down to the waters edge. There are heaps of free roaming chickens too! The kids loved chasing them around.
I love the pear tree. You can't beat the location. It sits near the idyllic estuary and Stone Store offering a sweet glimpse of beauty, history and nature all rolled into one. The food is great, I had the pork loin from their specials menu with peppercorn sauce. It was succulent, totally delightful and I got to choose two sides which resulted in one very fully belly! They seem to have quite a bit of live music too. Nick the local paramedic plays guitar some Friday nights and he's brilliant.
When taking a trip up to Kerikeri a very popular choice for food and drink is Pear Tree Restaurant. The big breakfast is a very reasonable $18.50 and includes bacon, cumberland sausage, homemade hash browns, black pudding, baked beans, grilled tomato and mushroom and 2 poached free range eggs served with toast! Right beside the Kerikeri river this is a picturesque spot to enjoy the best of Northland hospitality.
