Wow, what a wonderful lunchtime I spent enjoying the explosive and wonderful culinary experience of my recommended light lunch of Duck Egg on Steak open sandwich. It hit all the right taste buds. My compliments to the Chef!

Following a couple of visits for drinks and to eat we decided we really wanted to stay at this beautifully refurbished hotel. Gemma front of house was a fantastic, a pleasure to deal with and always busy. Unfortunately not all the staff were as attentive and on the first morning we were walked past a few times before we were... More

Thanks for your kind review, Gemma is a star, as are all the team usually, a bit of a glitch, so our apologies about the lateness of the offer of tea. So pleased that you tried so many of the dishes and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. More

My partner and I visited the globe for the first time. Arriving on a soggy afternoon in March we instantly felt at home by the warmth of this Inn. A quick bite to eat in the bar area we checked into room 7 - to the back of the property. Such a lovely, well appointed room with all you need... More

We've eaten here numerous times, and have always enjoyed our meal in the past. Tonight was a hugh disappointment, however. I had seafood spaghetti, and there was so much chilli in it, that it was actually painful to eat. However, as I'd ordered it, I soldiered on but my lips were on fire. Yes, I know the description was seafood... More

Oh dear, what a shame you found your food too hot, They do put chilli in the Seafood Spaghetti as mentioned on the menu and a 'Madras' style curry is a reasonably hot curry wherever it is served, it is a shame that you should perhaps have order the milder curry. Usually our staff are extremely attentive as I am... More

A late review but we stayed in November cannot rate The Globe highly enough. The food was fantastic and the deal we booked directly gave us £25 PP each night towards your evening meal from the main menu. As somebody else said here, the mackerel scotch eggs were to die for! Although our dog friendly room was on the small... More

Thanks! Yes we do appreciate and care for our four-legged visitors, after all what could be nicer than bringing the pooch along to enjoy some of the best coastal walks in the British Isles? And as for breakfast, that just sets you up properly for the day! Thanks for your lovely review. More

There is really nothing I can add to the other reviews. Room Spotless, Food Delicious, Staff friendly & helpful. The weekend we were there they had an issue with the toilets in the restaurant/bar area which was a shame but the staff did the very best they could under difficult circumstances. It didn't effect us as we had our beautiful... More

Cannot recommend The Globe Inn highly enough. We have eaten here a few times, in the past, so knew that the food was top notch, but had never stayed. We stayed in Room 1 which is on the first floor, at the front of Inn, overlooking the green. Wow, what a super room. Beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and two radiators... More

Food was great and hospitality and busyness/atmosphere here was enjoyable with a lovely breakfast and great location. Parking is tricky but small point really. North norfolk isn't cheap but you get a good standard here.

I am glad you enjoyed The Globe's restaurant and delicious food. The restaurant has underfloor heating which in normal weather is sufficient. In the winter months we have two wood burners but evidently these weren't lit for your visit which is a shame. The bathroom radiator was an issue on the night of your stay and of course it has...
