Popped in on a Sunday afternoon. Great live music playing in a large, sunny, child friendly beer garden. The pub is run by a very friendly and welcoming couple, whose welcome has enticed locals and non locals alike. Food available on some days, pool table, dart board.

After a very long walk we popped to the globe for a beer, then spotted there was a food menu, and we were certainly not disappointed for choice, we opted for the steak and the lobster, wow!

The staff super friendly and helpful, with flexibility when requested. Next time we visit Swanage I will be sure to make a booking to ensure we get a seat!!! Great... More

Tucked away in a little side street on the outskirts of town we parked on the road nearby. We were on holiday and arrived not having booked and waited in the bar while a table became available. There is a big garden with more tables but we preferred to be inside. The landlord explained how popular this little place was... More

Me and my partner went to Swanage a few weeks ago and found this lovely pub. We visited a few times for drinks. We were made to feel really welcome by the landlord and some of the locals. It's very friendly with a nice pub garden and parking at the back. We ate here once, it was nice enough -... 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.
