Very pleasant. Friendly staff. Great selection of ale and cider. Brilliant selection of food. Fast and promt staff. Had a slight issue with a steak meal. But staff dealt with it in a professional way. And a replacement was soon delivered. I am sure just a one of incident. Well done and thank you.

Had not visited for some years when it was run down and shabby, Has been refurbished but still has a pub feel not like so many shiny gastro pubs these days. Ladies had bream, which was huge and delicious with veggies, enough for the biggest appetites. I had the chicken with a white sauce, very good, two others had the... More

Cannot recommend highly enough. Come here too frequently to post on every occasion. Fish & Chips are absolutely superb - I usually take fries rather than chips. Rack of ribs also V good. Ploughman's for lunch would fill any ploughman if taken as normal - small will fill 90% of ladies - you have been warned! Staff are all trained... More

I visit here frequently with friends and family and always find a lovely environment with amazing and friendly staff. Food isn't just typical pub food and has improved with their new Chef. 100% recommend to anyone!

We booked an 8pm table for two on Friday evening. Menu choices were good, we chose a chicken dish and a fish and chips. No complaints, both meals very good and so was the service. Only gripe is please serve your fish and chips on a plate - not a board. So unnecessary and fiddly to eat!

Small restaurant and very noisy. Unfortunately, a large party came and stood between us and the bar, and were really noisy above the general din. If they had been asked to sit down at the table they had reserved, there wouldn't have been a problem. Even though our meals were good (apart from white chips which could have been cooked... More

The pub had been refurbished but retains its character and the food is really very good. I had a perfectly cooked steak and an amazing peppercorn sauce, and the lamb pie was fabulous apparently. There were 6 of us - even a very picky veggie and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service.

We walked to Lympstone from Topsham and stopped at The Globe for a pint (beer and cider, both excellent!) We had a sneaky look at the menu and decided to eat there as it all looked good, especially the specials. Unfortunately the vegetarian chilli special that I ordered was finished - the fish and chips I had instead was very... More
