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

When we visited the Globe in the Summer, it really was a hint of paradise with lady host offering a welcome with excellent food, drinks and service at a table in the sun, Not so today. When we arrived mine (male) host was holding forth with a group of locals with much noise and laughter such that we felt we... More

This place doesnt look like much when you step inside but so worth giving it a chance. The service was very friendly and fast. The menu was typical pub grub but very tasty and reasonably priced

Called in last week for a couple of drinks on a lazy Monday afternoon. Service from barmaid (Emily) was excellent.Very cheerful and polite recommended a drink (Hobgoblin) which was very good. Landlord likes his real ale im told, the quality of his beer reflects this. Good friendly relaxed atmosphere I would recommend the Globe to anyone.

Me and my husband visited The Globe one evening, and I have to say we were very underwhelmed. We only stayed for a couple of drinks as the atmosphere was so drab! It's an ok place if you fancy a quick pint but apart from that I wouldn't visit again. Staff needed to cheer up a little bit too.

I came into this busy pub on a Saturday afternoon with my partner and the service from the lady behind the bar was so good that we decided to return on the Sunday for lunch and I am pleased we did the best meal we have had for a long time no wonder they were busy. I would come back... More

On the 18th October 2016 I entered this pub. Friendly and welcoming. Ordered the beef burger. My teeth squeaked as I ate the monstrosity of a burger. It was 6 inches long and tasted like rubber. I continued to eat it as I was so hungry and didn't have time to nip down the road to McDonald's. Chips were good.... More
