This is a "proper" pub, with roaring fire and an atmosphere that makes you and your four legged friend feel welcome. Nit huge but homely. Forget the decor its what 's inside that counts. We decided to go for Sunday lunch and at £13.95 its an absolute bargain. The choice for roast was "oink" or "moo". We had 3 moos... More

We are lucky enough to have lived up the road from the Globe for the last couple of years. Our family were immediately welcomed at the Globe and have and continue to spend many fine afternoons and evenings enjoying the company, beer and food. As others have written, this is definitely a pub that serves food, but the food is... More

We've been to The Globe a few times when visiting family in Swanage. We love it! It's a proper local pub with some very colourful characters and really warm and friendly atmosphere. The landlord and landlady, Steve and Annie, are absolutely lovely and you're sure of a very warm welcome. On our first trip we sat in the lovely beer... More

The food was excellent, reasonably priced and pipping hot. The pub had a very friendly feel and I wish we had a local like it!

The Globe Inn happens to be my local pub. It is a busy unpretentious local which serves very good ales. What I find exceptional, however, is the quality of the food on offer. There are many restaurants in Swanage and it is possible to get a decent meal in most of them. I would put the Globe Inn in the... More

Final meal off our week in Swanage and we saved the best until last. There were seven of us four adults, three kids. Really friendly pub just on the outskirts of town but well worth the 10 minute walk. Kids loved the beer garden and play area. The food is top notch and really good value for money. Had it... More

We live locally and use the pub regularly. Whilst my parents were visiting we chose to eat in the Globe and as usual had a 5 star meal at more than reasonable prices. My parents were wowed by the food and traditional pub atmosphere. The next day they wanted to visit again. Always friendly and a beautiful garden to enjoy... More

We checked what days they were serving food and luckily as Thursday night was our last night so we could visit. On entering the pub we were a... More

Searched town centre in vain for quality food at a reasonable price so trudged all the way here on Tripad's recommendation. So glad we did! Cracking locals pub atmosphere, cheery welcome, good ale and lots of empty tables and an interesting menu. Apparently the chef is new and caters for the restaurant section alone. Really tasty fresh food eaten and... More

Staying in Swanage, we two needed to find somewhere that reputedly did good fish and chips and a fine steak. The Globe does both. We can vouch for that. What the Globe lacks in terms of quiet dinner-for-two ambience (the shove ha'penny tournament was warming up) was more than made up for by the quality of the food. Excellent fresh... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit and the food. We are definitely a traditional pub that does food and so some nights you will have to accept the teams who play traditional pub games sharing the space. Remember to ring and check the availability of food as this does vary throughout the seasons. More
