The food is restaurant standard and compliments to the chef. I had the sweet chilli chicken stir fry which was tasty and fresh. My partner had the fish pie that came with a topping of puff pastry. It is quaint and was full to the brim with all ages, locals and regulars. It is dog friendly on the... read more

Been to Swanage many times and never been here, but based on the reviews thought we would give it a go. Turned up at 6pm to be told that they had just stopped serving, but the chef wouldn't mind staying on and cooking us a meal, how amazing is that! We ordered our meals and were a bit dubious about...

We haven't been impressed with many of the pubs in Swanage, but the Globe is different. The bar staff are friendly and the beer is kept well. We didn't eat, but the food looked well prepared. We'll certainly go again.

Steve and Annie are very friendly and welcoming. Food is very good and reasonably priced. I live in Swnage and play darts against the Globe team. Good fun.

I should say at the outset that The Globe Inn is my local but that is not to say that I am biased. Steve runs The Globe really well and the beer is excellently kept. My family and I like to eat in there and the Chef, Ashley creates superb dishes which keep getting better. If you like to enjoy... More

I ate here last week whilst visiting Swanage, and had a fantastic meal. Ashely, the chef, is amazing. And the prices are very reasonable. I will definitely be going back here next time I am in Swanage.
