Stayed for one night in July to celebrate a Birthday. Rooms were clean and practical with a generous supply of toiletries in the modern bathrooms. We didn't eat in the Restaurant, but called into the Bar for a nightcap, staff all very friendly and welcoming. Had a great nights sleep, and even though our room as above the bar, the... More

We only stayed here for one night, but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms are a blend of rustic quaintness mixed with modern luxury and tasteful decoration. The staff are all very friendly and were kind enough to let us check out a little later due to my partner having a migraine. I would definitely go back and next time... More

I stayed with my husband and some friends to attend a friend's wedding. The hotel is cosy, the rooms big and well equipped, and the staff friendly. We had a very nice breakfast and tasty dinner there.

We stayed at The Globe for just one night. The room (number 12) which is upstairs in the courtyard was large, light and airy. Everything was well thought out, including complimentary toiletries, bottled water, tissues etc. Breakfast was delicious. Staff were very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

We visited for dinner midweek. The restaurant is traditionally appointed and the service friendly and efficient. My wife had Supreme of Chicken which she enjoyed, followed by sticky toffee pudding. I had the Devon pork cooked three ways which was delicious, followed by a Raspberry and almond tart which was excellent. We recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

We didn't stay, just had dinner. The service was excellent. I had moules followed by bream and both were delicious. My husband had seafood bisque followed by the seafood curry and he was less impressed, as there were too many herbs and bits of shell in the bisque and the curry was runny and bland. Our other guests were pleased... More

Lovely Inn. The staff were extremely friendly. Rooms in the annexe are very good and well appointed. We had a evening meal which was excellent. Couldn't fault anything. Would highly recommend staying here.

Second stay here, Rooms in annex are very good fantastic shower and really comfortable beds. Evening meal was ok. A bit disappointed in breakfast burnt toast and stewed cold tea. Hence my average rating this time.

We enjoyed a good coffee break, and then later a very nice lunch. The interior is full of character. Staff are charming. The food is excellent, not cheap, but well worth paying for, both in quality and presentation. This was our second visit in the past 3 years, and it is still as good as ever.

Had a 2 night stay here and really couldn't fault it. The rooms were quiet and well appointed with jars of brewing stuff ,not your usual couple of nescafe tubes. The hotel is also a busy local bar so there was no need to go out in the evening. The restaurant had a good atmosphere, smart but cosy. The food... More
