Charming Lympstone, Exe River Village Pub serves Great Food!!

Having stopped at Lympstone when returning to Topsham from Exmouth via Great Western commuter train, we found a most charming village and wonderful pub, The Globe. Totally surprised by the many interesting choices on Menu and special board, we had a wonderful Chargrilled Octopus starter, followed... read more

We went for a family lunch with my 3 year old on a Saturday. Really decent tasty food. Good value. Kid friendly with games, but no outside space to run around for energetic ones. I had whitebait, sole and calamari with fries. £9.95 and it was lovely. Brilliant portion of chicken goujons and chips for my daughter, and my dad... More

Visited the Globe Inn at Lympstone for a meal with my son to celebrate a birthday. We were recommended to visit by a friend who had recently eaten there. We were not to be disappointed! We decided to order the Special the Seafood Platter which as its all fresh local produce has to be ordered in advance. I would unreservedly... More

Without doubt the best pub in the village and now my local. The staff are superb and food of restaurant quality. As my new local I recommend the globe as the best place in the village. Well done the Globe.

The Globe is my favourite pub in Lympstone, I eat here at least twice a month and visit at least once a week. I feel I'm very lucky to call it my local. All the staff are great, friendly and helpful. The food is consistently excellent and and ranges from sandwiches to fresh local fish, a great burger or something... More

Went here for a drink midweek. I liked the interior, think - traditional pub but with an upbeat flavour. I had a pint of the Cornish 'Tribute' which is perfect for the Summer. I notice that on busy periods people may need to wait some time before being served food. I would go back and would like to eat something,... More

The food was easily 4* - well above average for pub food. Lovely fresh (local?) fish. Good size portions, plenty of variety. Excellent king prawns, lively sea bass and lovely lemon pannacotta. However the service was VERY slow, it was very busy and down to one chef! They did warn us a bit, gave us olives as stop gap, but... More

On a busy bank holiday, the staff were obviously under a great deal of pressure when we arrived for lunch. We had to go up to the bar for service, having waited for ages for the harassed waitress to take our order at our table. The waitress then handed her notepad to us so that we could help out by...
