Nice on Sunny Day

A lovely canal side pub offering good Ales and good food, on a sunny day its great to sit outside and watch the narrowboats pass by. A walk along the towpath makes for a pleasant afternoon

We visited this pub last night with a couple of friends. We decided not to have a starter and just ordered a main course. The main courses took over 45 minutes to arrive and then only two arrived, the other two arrived 5 minutes later by which time the first two were almost cold. Three of us ordered desserts. Two...

Went for Sunday lunch as The Globe Inn is usually pretty reliable and has been one of my go to places for food, especially when the weather is good. Such a shame that The Globe appears to be trading off past glories and the good will of customers. We arrived just before 2pm on a busy-ish afternoon and ordered lunch... More

I'm really very sorry to read of your poor experience. The current host at the Globe took over just two days before your visit and is working tirelessly to turn things around. The wait should have been comunicated to you upon your arrival so that you were able to make the decision wether you would like to dine and this... More

Pub not that busy when i went - queued to get a drink for 15 minutes before leaving, in that time the barman (well bar boy) managed to serve 3 people - more people cleaning tables than serving behind the bar - Management need to sort it before you ruin the pub - start with training your people and teaching...

Lovely canal side pub with a good atmosphere and nice restaurant. Views of the canal boats moored outside with families and dog walkers strolling by are lovely. Time almost stands still here. Staff were pleasant and helpful but when its busy and the sun is out the kitchen just cannot cope. We waited almost 50 minutes for a soup and... More

Lovely location, plenty of outdoor space- nicer spot canalside, but a back garden as well. Enjoyed my caesar salad but they were out of chicken to serve with it (other things came with chicken, so not sure why there wasn't a creative solution to that). My friend had the burger which looked good, chips were good. As per previous reviews,... More

Lovely food, it gets quite busy when the sun comes out. Its a great place to take families, especially young children, if you prefer a quieter drink, slightly later in the afternoon seems quiet. Food was lovely, we took our dog and they are allowed in the bar as long as they stay off furniture. A lovely evening was had... More
