One of the problems in being a foodie is that you have to keep trying new places in order to find the new 'best thing'. The truth is you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince and you end up spending a lot of money at places that are not that great. And then you... More

Used to be disappointing but not any more. Food is excellent and the landlord very friendly. Not ridiculously expensive either.

Too friends here to thank them for helping us out. Great night out. Hosts and staff very helpful with a food intolerance to one of our party. Recommend anyone to eat here.

They have got it just right here - delicious ingredients beautifully cooked with emphasis very much on quality rather than quantity. Understated and unpretentious - thank you for a lovely meal :)

These guys really do know their food and wines. Having just eaten there last night, I can totally vouch for the exquisite food and warm welcome you will receive by the staff there. James who has taken on The Globe and Rainbow is an excellent manager and he clearly has a very very good chef in the kitchen, We were... More

The barman is very jolly and welcoming on entering the pub. The restaurant small and cosy, the food excellent but not for those who like enormous helpings. Each dish was cooked in a very inventive way. We were surprised that when asked for bread the waiter returned to say they had none. The main course lamb shank pie was delicious... More

Absolutely delicious meal ! Sunday lunch at it best ! all about quality well cooked food - to be honest, hard to fault it in any way. The meat was tender and delicious with wonderful Yorkshire puds and very well cooked veg - my only advice is that if you had a huge appetite you could probably eat more !... More

We visited after a couple of years gap with some Canadian friends. The Globe & Rainbow was under new management but was as relaxing and friendly as ever. The menu was interesting and the presentation, taste and quality of our meal was excellent. We'll be back soon.

Walked to this amazing pub where we had such a personal experience. Becky was fantastic. The little pre-starter of risotto balls were amazing. Would recommend the rib for main and duck egg for starter. This is not a part of the service but we even got a lift home from the owner. So special. A must go!
