I was with my boyfriend visiting the market and we wanted a laid back brunch venue. We were at the cafe at 1130 on a Sunday morning. It was fairly busy but nobody acknowledged us. We couldn't sit outside so went to sit inside where there were a few tables for 4 available, so although there were only 2 of... More

It was packed but well managed considering it bursting at the seams. The beer was average Shoreditch price and the crowd was very fun. What more can I say?

I went to the Stringray Globe and had a brilliant meal. I'm a bit of a steak snob but went and had the most amazing steak here. Quality meat and really well cooked. The atmosphere was great too, really relaxed and friendly. Lovely little place and we will go back!

Had lunch here recently with my daughter. The food was excellent and well served. There were gluten free options which was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. There was a good atmosphere and the bill was very moderately priced considering it is in the heart of a very popular part of London.

Excellent place if you want some cheap, good food. My boyfriend and I love coming here for a quick lunch if we are in the area. Always full of people and has a real buzz about it. It has a range of gluten free dishes aswell which is great. The gluten free pasta is excellent. Go check it out!

I have been to the String ray Globe cafe a couple of times now. I have tasted some of their pizzas, pasta dishes and imaginative salads. Food is good and evidently made by people who enjoy cooking. I particularly liked the gluten free homemade pizza base which is crispy & tasty and doesn't overshadow the taste of the toppings. I... More

When searching for gluten free pizza places in London, this place came up as one of the top rated. The website states that they offer gluten free pizza so I was very excited to try it. Only after arriving did I learn that the kitchen makes normal pizza and GF pizza on the same surface and that cross contamination is... More

Iva R, Owner at Stringray Globe Cafe, Bar and Pizzeria, responded to this review

Dear Sindre, Stringray Globe is not advertised as a ‘Gluten-free place’ as such. We do offer gluten-free meals that are suitable for coeliacs such as gluten-free pasta, home-made GF cannelloni and other, naturally gluten-free dishes. We are well known for our thin-crust gluten-free pizzas but we do not recommend them to coeliacs as there is a risk of cross-contamination. This... More
