Tasty food and ale, friendly staff, good atmosphere, what more could we ask. After a day out in Topsham we tried the local bars and decided to eat in the Globe and glad we did, we'd definitely go back again.

Stayed at The Globe for one night in August. Check in was super easy with friendly staff. We stayed in a room in the main pub. It was a little noisy until the pub closed at 11 but fine if you're having a drink downstairs. There's no parking but there's a free car park after 5pm just down the road... More

Ideal place to stay as close to Exeter but away from the bustle. All staff very attentive and helpful. One tip, the room was very hot as windows closed on arrival. Fan supplied not man enough. Ask housekeeping to open windows of let rooms in summer.

We booked on line. The room was perfect with a comfortable bed. Walk around Topsham and enjoy the peace and quiet of a lovely river town. Nice modern facilities for an old brewery/pub. Breakfast was very enjoyable with the lovely and funny Mo. Definitely returning to stay a few nights.

Stayed in one of the courtyard rooms. Car parking can be an issue and there is a danger of getting boxed in so you may prefer to use the public car park at the far end of Globefields. Service in restaurant on the slow side. Food ok if slightly uninspiring.

Thank you for your review from your visit last year. Please accept our sincere apologies that we did not meet your expectations regarding our service and food on this occasion. Our limited car parking is available during the winter months however there are 3 local car parks very close by to choose from in our delightful Estuary town. We recommend... More

Topsham is a delightful village near Exeter ( 10 min drive) and The Globe is a pub/ restaurant with about 12 rooms. Our room was very nice- king bed so comfortable but noisy in early morning. Good English breakfast

During a short visit to this charming small town, we lunched at The Globe, a large pub close to the quayside. We expected, boring food, bored staff and a limited menu. WRONG! We were met with a smile, the food was excellent (we enjoyed sharing plates), the prices reasonable and the waiting staff very helpful. Recommended.

What an amazing review! Perhaps you can make your visit to Topsham longer next time because we have 19 boutique style bedrooms at our 16th century coaching inn. Check out our website at www.theglobetopsham.co.uk so that you can see some pictures. More

Thank you for your amazing review. Topsham is indeed a lovely location with lots of places to eat and drink and some quirky individual shops to browse around.
