We were delighted to find this little gem of a pub in Kendal, the barman/landlord was wonderful and gave everyone a very friendly welcome. It was also playing the Irish rugby which we were delighted with!! It's dog friendly and the food was really good....what more could you want

A small pub with an area upstairs for eating. Although we didn't eat we had a drink in the pub downstairs. It was an icy cold day and when it started to rain we had to find somewhere to have a drink and warm up. We had our little dog with us and when we went in we realised that... More

Wandered around kendal looking for some where for a drink. Glad we came across The Globe, really friendly. Feels like your local pub straight away. Popped back in on our second night to be welcomed like old friends. Also met with people we'd met the night before who were staying in the same hotel as us. Says it all !... More

The beer is good. Very good. Possibly the best pint in Kendal. The food is, well, old fashioned. On the side of your plate, your vegetables, pale undressed cauliflower, carrot and peas. With your sandwich a salad garnish, with onion on top. 'ooo, they do like their onion. Nothing wrong with that, nothing wrong with it at all, it's just,... More

Having read your last report on trip advisor and previous visits with us here at the Globe i can only express my apologies for what can be an overlook on my part as manager of the Globe restaurant. There is no excuse at all for what happened. But over that period my father was very ill in hospital and had... More

I am replying to your negative review on my establishment. the coffee you were served was in coffee cups not espresso ones as you incorrectly state. The bacon is certainly not done in the microwave but grilled and as for the baked potato at this time of year as we use fresh potatoes NOT frozen ones they are pale but... More

I happened across this place during a visit to Kendal on a lazy afternoon. After going into a couple of other pubs looking for food we decided on this one as it was clean and well maintained. The service was good and the food was good quality for the price.

We visited the Globe in whilst staying in Kendal for my Birthday. It was our first night so we just wanted some good pub grub. On arrival we were taken upstairs, and a kind waiter took our orders. There were 8 adults and 3 kids in our party and everyone was impressed by the home cooked food. The waiter even... More
