Lunch out

On arrival we were told it would be a 45 minute wait for food, as we were with friends this was OK but as the pub was by no means full, unexpected. No reason given. On ordering we found both the steak and large fish and chips were off, again very odd as these are surely staples on the menu.... read more

I travelled 2 hours to have lunch with my daughter. A Sunday roast was promised. We were accepted as diners and shown to our table. Our drinks order took 20 minutes to arrive from the bar 15 feet away, and only after we had reminded the waitress that we had ordered. We then had a further hour's wait....and our food... More

3 hours to have a 3 course Sunday lunch, numerous issues with order being recorded wrong, main courses delivered over a 15 minute period meaning some went cold. Food underwhelming, roast potatoes inedible. Such a shame as it could be so much more - we won't be returning.

Our friends visiting from Somerset took us to the Globe as a treat last night as they had visited last year and thought it was great. Things have changed since then. A 20 min taxi ride each way was a complete waste. When we arrived we were told we couldn't order drinks at the bar but someone would take our... More

I love this pub but the food is such a disappointment. We waited for over an hour for Sunday roast and when the food arrived it was barely edible. The beef was inedible and had been hacked rather than carved. It was more gristle and vein than meat; it was more of a biology lesson than meal. The potatoes were... More

This is a lovely old world pub but if you want to eat at night pay a bit more and go somewhere else. We went on a Friday night there was only three other tables full but we guessed it would get busy, it didn't. the service was slow and painful, the food ordinary. we won't be eating there again.

Moored on the Grand Union Canal, a short stroll along the canal from downtown Leighton Buzzard, is this delightful restaurant pub. We visited several times during our winter stay in the town so did not avail ourselves of the extensive outdoors seating (great for families) but settled down in the low-beamed interior redolent of old fires and warm ale.

My wife had the Risotto unfortunately it was not Risotto rice. Really bad quality food. We ordered a lime and soda to drink. Twice we had to go back and ask for more like to be added so it could be tasted. Not great.
