Really enjoyed our meal tonight, had starters and mains but couldnt fit puds in. Food was beautifully presented & tasted as good as it looked. Staff were very friendly. Service was good & nice to reveive check backs after meals had been delivered. Not to mention the location is beautiful too. I really recommend! X

Having read some of the bad reviews I was sceptical about going to the Globe, however friends of ours recommended it so we went. There were 6 of us for dinner and all 6 starters and main course were very good. I would not have been disappointed with any of them but I'd gone for the ham hock terrine followed... More

Called in for late afternoon lunch with very elderly mother. Staff very helpful - service with a smile. Food was good and reasonable in price. Will revisit. Take care driving alongside the canal.

I came here with my mum to have lunch. The starter came out very promptly but we had to wait for our main for 45 mins and we were only had fish ! This was served dried up and inedible. We spoke to the Manager at that time who said he would replace it but couldn't guarantee that the dish... More

To get to this pub/restaurant you have to drive /walk a section of the canal. Once at the globe you are welcomed heartily. Food, comfortable seating and great service and price. Well worth a visit -and with excellent parking

Right on the Grand Union Canal in Linslade, this pub does reasonable food and drink in a nice setting. Easy to access from the road from Linslade/Leighton Buzzard to Stoke Hammond, with a capacious car park, this is a nice venue for just feeding/drinking or doing those things either end of a good walk - which can be along the...

Good beer, but that's about all. Terrible service by pretty useless staff. The food was poor as well, staff couldn't careless.

Following a previous visit which was not enjoyable I thought it only fair after seeing the feedback from the manager to my criticisms to visit again. "Please be assured that since your visit improvements have been made including the recruitment, training and coaching of team members." was the feedback, however, no real change. Looking at comments made on this site... More

Dreadful service four meals served and four meals not fit for human consumption. No Sunday roast-on a Sunday! Staff were clearly not bothered and when we complained we were told by the 'acting manager' "I have had a long day and I am tired" asked why the chef could not serve we were told "he had a stroke two weeks...
