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.

If you are looking for a proper pub with good pub food in the Swanage area then I highly recommend The Globe, it is a welcoming place and kid and dog friendly. The food is well cooked and plentiful at a very affordable price, well worth the visit

I am lucky to live within walking distance of The Globe Inn, Swanage, where Ashley Prynn is the resident Chef, and boy does he spoil us! Everything he makes is delicious; his fish n' chips, lobster, pies, Sunday roasts, homemade ravioli, sticky toffee pudding - really, everything he makes is just so good. If you are a local and haven't... More

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
