It was a Friday evening and the bar was very busy with drinkers. Although lively it felt very welcoming and there was some banter with the barman. The restaurant... read more

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 out skirts... More

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.
