Revisited in December 2016 twice for the set lunch with visiting family members who couldn't believe what fantastic value it was! Friendly and efficient service as always, and if you like what is on the board for the starter and main of the day, you'll get great home cooked food with a pichet of house wine for EUR12.50. Wonderful bread... More

Basic food, well cooked. Good service on first occasion. Amazing riverside view and the best coffee we have had this month.

Before you head to the market, checkout the starter and mains of the day (a choice of starters and a choice of mains), if they appeal and the weather is fine, book if you want to sit by the river and enjoy hearty home cooked bistro dining. Waiting staff are friendly and have extraordinary energy and efficiency - I'm always... More

Sat outside having lunch in the dappled shade under the trees by the river. Nice busy atmosphere. The food and service was good at reasonable prices. We had duck confit which was done perfectly with nice crisp skin. Recommended and will visit there again.

Found this place recommended in the Rough Guide. Only time this guide let us down. Disinterested staff. Entree was half an avocado stuffed with tuna. Problem was half of each avocado was brown, hard and inedible. Plat was a rice and sausage dish which tasted Ok but was nearly cold.

We live locally and probably eat here about twice a week. It's a cafe, open for breakfast (pastry and coffee) and lunch as well as coffee and drinks through the day and it is always busy - especially at lunchtime when the place is packed with local workmen who order the plat du jour and eat 3 course with coffee...

My husband's meal arrived and was pretty disappointing but acceptable. My meal never arrived. I watched lots of locals arrive, p!ace orders and be served. The... More

Had lunch by the beautiful river at this well placed cafe. Fab location, quite busy inside and out. Small but reasonable menu and well priced. Sadly we did have to wait quite some time for both the menu and our meals. Think we were forgotten about as others who arrive after us were fed and gone before we received our... More

This cafe is right by the river and the old stone bridge. Very pretty location. We stopped for drinks and to take in the atmosphere. Wine was cheap. Staff friendly.

The Globe used to be a great place to eat, fabulous setting and the food/service/value was excellent. Unfortunately in recent years, it's very hit and miss. If you are going to eat here, the lunches tend to be better but the most recent meal I had in the evening was inedible. Its a shame as it used to be a... More
