Great location but food expensive

Good location, perfect after a nice long walk along the canals, food is ok but over priced for what you get. Allow dogs in the bar which is great for dog owners like myself

Stopped for lunch whilst walking along the canal, great location, but obviously surviving on this alone. Garden and patio areas very tired and in need of general clean and TLC. Food basic pub fayre that can be reheated or fried by any one, portions pretty small and expensive. Shame Greene King normally do better.

Avoid staff not interested in customers and the food and drink needs to be reviewed. Ale was flat and food dished up as a ffactory canteen use to.

My visit was to celebrate a birthday, we had three children with us 2, 8 and 12. All tastes/ages catered for. Staff charming. Always able to find attract staff member's attention, nothing seemed too much trouble. Lovely spacious dining room. Great unhurried service meant we could sit and chill and chat. Good value for money too.

We’d had a long and wet day out on the canal and really wanted somewhere warm and welcoming and a nice meal, and the Globe Inn didn’t disappoint. The food was really nice, the beer was great, the staff were lovely, friendly and good fun and the atmosphere was excellent. So it would have warranted a really good review even... More

Conveniently located next to the Grand Canal about 10 minutes cycles ride from Leighton Buzzard town centre, my dad and I stopped here around lunchtime. We both had an ale which were reasonably priced (£3.50ish a pint) and dad had a salmon sandwich (£6) which was good, but took half an hour to come which was a long time considering... More

After being advised by various friends and family as to how good this place was we were sorely disappointed by the reality. Arriving on a Sunday evening after days of cruising along the Grand Union Canal, we were ready for a culinary experience. This we received, but not a good one. Attempting to order we were advised by the waiter... More

We hoped to sit in the sun and watch canal boats glide by, but the weather let us down and the heavens opened. Good beer, pleasant bar staff, so we sat and watched the rain. We decided to eat, as the daily menu was remarkable value, We has local roast ham with egg and chips for less than £5.The portions... More

I have the feeling that The Globe lacks direction at the moment and needs a bit of money spent on bringing the decor up to scratch. Presumably Greene King are not running it down intentionally so it's odd that they allow it to become somewhat shabby inside, for instance in the bar the walls and paintwork need attention and where...
