Great Sunday lunch... thanks Family of 4. 2 Roast Beef, I lamb and 1 chicken. All lovely like you cooked them at home and a nice big bowl of veg - sprouts, cauliflower cheese, carrots and cabbage. All cooked to perfection with a beer to wash it down! No posh food but well cooked and nice.

We reserved an area in the globe to celebrate a 90th birthday. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and considering this is a small intimate pub, it managed to hold 30 of us including lots of very young children. The buffet they laid on was brilliant and excellent value for money so very impressed and a big thankyou to... More

Visited Swanage last weekend and had one of the best beef roasts ever. Great value and friendly service all around. Open fire created perfect atmosphere. Footie was on too - hubby-to-be was happy 😃 Fat happy. Thank you Globe Inn xx

Looked on the reviews and found them all to be good - unfortunately the menu on line does not match the menu in the pub! The meal and staff were friendly and helpful. We ordered sausages and mash and was shocked to be told it was £12 for quite a small portion - on line it states £6.00.

We are sorry you found our meals expensive and wish you had mentioned this at the time of your meal as we could have discussed your portion size then. Six pound for sausages is for the small eaters menu. I have discussed this with chef and he tells me 12.00 is a mistake. It should have been 8.95. We will... More

Description
We are a local pub that welcomes visitors. Chef Ash rents the kitchen from us and prepares and sources all his meals. He uses mainly local ingredients. We are quite small and so do not have a separate dining room although we do have an area set aside for meals. There is a large sunny garden and a car park to the rear of the pub. Dogs are welcome. Children should be off the premises by 9 pm to comply with our licencing restrictions but can stay a bit later if they are still finishing a meal. We are a pub that serves good food and not a restaurant.
