Felt very welcome, nice selection of St Austell ales (of course). Food was well presented and service between courses was well timed, allowing each one to be properly savoured. Blade of beef was my choice, nicely done - not too melt in the mouth having retained it's texture. Superb veg - hot and not overcooked, sprouts, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower...

We have been meaning to go there for a while, so last Sat.evening we made it! It was busy and the atmosphere was good. But, we had to suffer 3 dogs right next to us while we were eating, which we found totally unacceptable! It really spoiled our evening. I feel it should not be allowed. The menu was also...

I did not do much in the way of research prior to booking this hotel ( sometimes this is not a bad thing) and what a delight to discover this was an St Austell Brewery pub / hotel. The brewery alone is one of my favourites so they had a head start. Check in was good with v polite and...

I had two starters; coriander tempura scallops with lentil and coconut dahl followed by pork cheek rillettes with parma ham, sourdough toasts, poached pears and salted crackling. All delicious....

Popped in for some drinks, lovely place and setting. Made the error of ordering a 'flat white', as the picture shows, it was not that at all. Instant coffee and hot milk? Coffee training is needed!!! Otherwise a nice visit.

Another lovely stay at the Globe. Room (number 20) was spacious with a nice bath and good overhead power shower. Room very clean. We had breakfast every day which was great quality and sets you up for the day. They do a very nice pint of Tribute. Staff all very friendly and combines family friendliness with corporate efficiency. A special...
