We are a local pub that welcomes visitors. Chef Ash rents the kitchen from us and prepares and sources all his meals. He uses mainly local ingredients. We are quite small and so do not have a separate dining room although we do have an area set aside for meals. There is a large sunny garden and a car park to the rear of the pub. Dogs are welcome. Children should be off the premises by 9 pm to comply with our licencing restrictions but can stay a bit later if thery are still finishing a meal. We are a pub that serves good food and not a restaurant.

Great food at very reasonable prices

Visited in a Wednesday night (they don't normally do food on a Wednesday so unfortunately no specials). Very friendly staff with a nice atmosphere. Prawn starter was very nice (served with salad and a mini stir fry of veg) followed by crab and chilli linguine which was excellent (not that hot... read more

We came here last year so thought we would pay another visit and we were glad we did. We had the Lulworth lobster thermidore and the TT braised beef which was melt in the mouth.The chef didn`t even mind making two portions of the crab linguine for the kids(without the chilli) which they loved!! Excellent pub...

We visited the Globe because of its TripAdvisor ratings, and were very pleasantly surprised! The pub sits a bit outside of the main part of town, perhaps a 20 minute easy walk from the centre, but is significantly cheaper than a lot of the more central eateries. The food is also exceptional - I had the Thai Curry, which I... More

This pub is on the outskirts of Swanage in a very ordinary part of town. It offers food comparable in quality to the best restaurants in town at a fraction of the price. We didn't expect to see a specials board which included lamb and goat tagine, which was exquisite and delicately flavoured, as was the smoked cod with braised... More

My husband and I ventured to the Globe last Saturday after seeing the reviews on here. We were not disappointed! The interior does not do the kitchen justice - we both chose from the specials menu and were really pleased we did. The husband had lamb shank and mustard mash - he hasn't stopped raving about it since and thought... More

Thank you very much for your lovely feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your meal. We are trying to maintain the atmosphere of The Globe as a local that welcomes visitors for drinks and good food rather than a restaurant type pub. Ash rents the kitchen from us and we work together to try and make eating here a pleasant... More

We stayed in Swanage and gave the Globe a go after looking at Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed, managed to get a table on-spec at 8.30 on a Friday night and had an excellent meal. The cheesy garlic bread was a whole baguette and the rump steak was perfect! Great vegetarian options too. Highly recommended.

As a party of four, we visited The Globe just before 1800 on a Friday evening in May. As other reviews have said, this is most definitely a pub with an added restaurant. We sat in the dining area just to the right of the bar, which was about six feet away. The menu was varied, with plenty of choice... More

The Globe is our local, but we have rarely eaten there as we usually eat in the town itself. As The Globe was taking part in the Swanage Fish Festival we thought we would give it a go as it is close to home. We had a really lovely evening with delicious well cooked food. My friend is a celiac... More
