Disappointing

Revisited this gorgeous pub nearly exactly a year to the day from our last visit. The location is gorgeous, and there is a small play area and woodland which my 4 year old adores. It's also very dog friendly and always full of friendly faces. This is why it gets 3 stars. The food- pretty awful. I... read more

Visited the Globe last Saturday with friends. It was extremely quiet but that was fine with us. Service was quick, food tasty, prices reasonable and most of all pleasant friendly staff. Lunch was finished off with a pleasant walk along the canal. By the time we left the place was filling up, especially the gardens overlooking the boats travelling the... More

Only three staff (one in kitchen, one behind bar, one serving), very busy as nice weather; cakes out for hours - not in cooling; can't do chips without seasoning (some customers aren not allowed salt); men's toilets flooded; ladies' toilets pretty disgusting where I confronted a male plumber who did not offer to leave when I came in; Come on...

Just had an amazing meal at the Globe. We are from Nottingham, so finding good Fish and Chips, and full crust pies has been very difficult since we've lived here. But our meal today was lovely . The staff were all very helpful and efficient. The meal arrived quickly and was very hot ( which doesn't always happen at other... More

The atmosphere was warm and the staff pleasent. All customers seemed happy with their food and service, much different from the reviews we had read... More

So after coming to this lovely pub for years on the boat. I came back for the first time in 2 months. As me and my wife and 2 friends walked in it was a mess. Ok I can understand that as we know how busy it gets . We waited a long time for a drink. While waiting I... More

Lovely place on the canal. The acess road is a nightmare, potholes as deep as dustbins. You could do serious damage to your car. Menu fine, good choice. Four of us chose from the golden years menu. You have to be a certain age for this menu, let's say well over 18! Standard pub grub. Ham egg chips x2 shepherds... More

Many thanks for your kind words. It's great to hear when a chord has been struck between our guests and the team - it sounds like that certainly happened with you and Carrie Ann. We hope you continue to use The Globe. More

Have been going to the Globe for years. Today was the last time. A long wait to be served at the bar. A very long wait for very mediocre food. Steak over cooked. Salad with eggs - no eggs. Chicken nicoise about as far from a nicoise as possible. No eggs, no anchovies! Chicken dry - I ended up giving... More

Lovely unique location. Was a regular but the menu has changed and the food I received on a Sunday was well below standard, actually pretty awful. Had a refund. Such a shame as the many previous times have been fine. Service is great though, just maybe need to rethink the kitchen.
