The Globe was recommended as the ideal last stop to finish off our 4 days trip on a lovely narrow boat, on the Great Union Canal. We had done a little research on trip advisor and thought maybe the negative reviews were put up by tired travellers and as the establishment looked quaint when we passed by on the way... More

Having visited this restaurant on various occasions and found the food and service always satisfactory. Was a bit surprised when I visited (with three other guests) at around 16:00hrs on Friday 29th May 2015. After ordering our drinks to be then informed by the waitress, that because the last three days have been very busy at the Globe, they do... More

Used to be a fab little pub with a beautiful location, visited many times with good quality food and service. Recent menu change may have caused the quality to drop. Although the offerings seem to be good on paper the execution of the dishes was poor from the kitchen on this occasion. Received a refund for the desserts which were... More

I only discovered the existence of The Globe this morning & I'm only 20 mins away. Came here today with the family, not knowing what to expect or even if we'd get a seat for 6 but we did. The service was spot on, the staff friendly & the food very tasty & good value. This pub is in a... More

Popped in for lunch and the food was ok, standard pub chain food, but the service is so slow, and the staff don't bother, its like they don't want to be there!! Shame because its a nice place to sit outside and watch the boats go by, come on globe, train your team!!!

Lovely pub, food is good but the service is quite rubbish and painfully slow. Not funny especially when eating out with children.

Had Sunday lunch with 12 family members, including three children. Good, quick and friendly service, food was pretty good. Nice location by the canal and playground for kids and loads of outside seating.
