The restaurant is adequate but very expensive. I think it has an undeservedly high reputation because as far as I can gather, there is very little competition in the area.
Stayed overnight and would not do so again.

Four of us plus my grandson met here for lunch as it was half way between our respective homes. All in all it was a great experience. The menu was interesting, the service good and the food excellent. We will be back!

the price was a bit high for the food but the pub seems to always be very busy... haven't been in a while would go back if service times were improved!

We are regulars at the Globe, which for the past couple of years has continued to deliver exactly what it says on the menu. It is always a pleasure to visit thanks to the warm welcome, especially if the co-owner Adele is present. One innovation she and her chef husband introduced a while ago was 'themed dinners', which present a separate menu with a national theme. Our most recent one was French, and the two courses for £10 a person are a bargain, plus well thought out and presented. A semi-deconstructed French onion soup came hot in a shot glass, with probably the best Croque Monsieur we have ever tasted. We both chose comfit duck for main, which was thoroughly cooked and delightfully crispy outside, it came with dauphinoise potatoes, and other veg are charged as extras to the customer's order. Accompanied by a bottle of German Pinot Gris, which added an extra level of pleasure to a lovely evening at 'our local'. The usual menu is offered by menu, with specials on the blackboard, so quite a wide choice. One can eat in the bar area, or restaurant, and wherever one sits there is a pleasant hub-bub of contented drinkers and diners.
