Excellent food, beer and service.

Came in for Saturday lunch time by chance, as the Swan down the road was full. Will definitely be coming back again, as food, beer and service were all excellent. Not been in for quite a few years and the pub has been refurbished since our last visit and looks very good with comfortable chairs... read more

We were not impressed on our first visit but decided to give the restaurant a second chance. There is a friendly atmosphere and good service but the vegetarian meals we had were very disappointing. It would be good to have more protein in vegetarian options.

This little pub has been a favourite of our over the years but only recently visited after a fairly lengthy absence. We eat out with friends once a month and try to visit a different place each time but on occasions make return visits. The menue was quite varied with the usual favourites like the fish dish, steak pie, hamburger... More

Wow what a great meal! Can't understand the most recent review as everything was perfect. Food was lush and excellent value for money. Service and atmosphere just great. Will definitely return!

Service appalling and staff were rude when trying to address our concerns. Sunday roast and two fish platters took 1hr and half! The fish platters were supposed to be too share and were missing parts advertised on the menus, shame as nice pub and surroundings. Would not visit again

Wonderful atmosphere, candles everywhere, decorated tables with hearts and packets of love hearts,all the ladies given a beautiful rose too . The food was out of this world, a valentines menu with lots of romantic sharing foods. We had a... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by this nice village pub. The food was extremely acceptable and the position of the pub is great for looking at the River Exe and strolling around the village.

Although it has been some time since my wife and I visited due to a busy Christmas, we yet again enjoyed another fantastic night at the Globe. Our meals were to the usual high standards that we have experienced before and nothing is too much trouble. The bar staff are polite and courteous and highly professional. We remained in the...

We all know that some posts on Tripadvisor must be taken with a lorry-load of salt! And when someone accuses the Globe of nothing but bad things, we all recognise this to be one of those occasions. For the record, I am a local person who uses the pub frequently, including for food. (You would have to travel a long... More
