We went to the Globe on a Sunday lunch to celebrate a friends birthday. We arrived at 1pm and the restaurant was very busy. We waited a while for our drinks which wasn't a problem but then waited over one and half hours for our main meal luckily we didn't order starters! Several people ordered a Sunday roast and when...

Called by for a late Tuesday lunch. Excellent value from Seniors' Menu. Pleasant ambience. Would return. Ate indoors. Like many canal side pubs it is very busy when outdoor seating is also occupied.

A proper canal side pub the Globe has a lot going for it. A 15 minute walk along the canal from town, plenty of parking or a short bike ride along the canal tow path there are multiple ways to access the Globe. Food and drink are lovely, service at the bar and in the restaurant is great. Lovely setting,... More

We've been here a few times and always ate well. It gets very busy in summer for these reasons but it's worth waiting what I think is a reasonable time for food. You can sit outside which have done in good weather and watch world go by ( in a boat) whilst kids have been playing in the park! Worth... More

Visited for late lunch Monday afternoon. Had a three course meal with my partner. We were greeted by a female member of staff who was friendly and allowed us to select our own table in the restaurant and followed us straight over. This was fantastic. Not intrusive which we have had before. The young lady was on the bar, restaurant... More

A good pub/restaurant is made or broken on its service level; the Globes service unfortunately is appalling. The ponytailed blonde gentlemen at the bar asked for ID for my 20 year old daughter, which is unusual, but I totally understand that rules are rules. She didn’t have any so ordered a soft drink. I didn’t expect to be them asked... More

Three of us had Christmas Lunch at The Globe (2014). We asked for Prawn Cocktails for starters, which was not on the set menu. No problem! I have to say we had an excellent lunch, the prawn cocktail was the best I have ever had. The main course (Turkey) was also excellent, and the desert was very nice. The staff... More

I have been to the Globe 3/4 times but found my last visit very dissapointing. The food was ok but the standard of service was very poor. VERY grumpy waitresses and waited approx 45 mins inbetween courses. In the end, after receiving the sweet menu, we decided after 20 mins of waiting for someone to return, to go to waitrose... More
