As a large group of 8 without a booking we were happy to find this traditional English pub and the staff were happy to accommodate our group and push together a few tables. The food was good for the fairly low prices and was quickly served considering there was only one waiter. Overall a good experience, the friendly staff being... More

A nice pub with friendly staff and a warm welcome, very dog friendly and helpful with our 15 month old son. Meal was good but staff in the restaurant seemed a little rushed at times.

We popped in for a coffee after deciding not to use costa and support a local business, big mistake. The surly barmaid informed us that we could have white or black instant coffee only, so we ordered 1 white, 1 black and sat down to wait and wait and wait and wait. I kept trying to get the barmaids attention... More

Firstly, I would like to point out that you were not offered instant coffee. We have a commercial coffee machine and grind our own beans. When approaching a bar it is good manners to wait your turn and not insist on being more important than others. The bar maid is not subservient to you and does not deserve to be... More

The Globe is right on the market place and is a classic example of a British town pub that is popular with friendly locals and serves some nice real ales and pub grub.

Ate here this week, the food is served upstairs and there is no lift, as I am disabled it was quite a climb to get there and the place was empty at 1.45pm although 4others came in whilst we were there. The food is typical pub grub and was tasty and good value for money and the waiter was friendly... More

Visited with a group one Friday night, did not book. Made to feel welcome, had some great pre-food banter with the landlord. Food is typical pub-grub, mixed comments across the group. Some of the dishes which we were lead to believe were homemade, used products that were not. Garlic breads were very small, contrary to how the landlord had initially... More
