“Lovely food and great service”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

A lovely pub with great food and service. The landlady made you feel like a long lost friend. The bar staff and waitresses were attentive and friendly. Great food that was enjoyed in a relaxed atmosphere.

“Very welcoming”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

The Globe was a regular haunt when we first came to Frogmore in late 80's then it changed drastically and this is the first time we have been back for a fair while - it was a very pleasant surprise to find it looking so good, very friendly landlady and tasty food.

“Food was just fine, ruined by rude staff”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

I visited the Globe on Easter Sunday with 6 other members of family for lunch. I spoke to the owner over the phone on Friday to make an initial enquiry and again to book on the Saturday afternoon whilst sitting on the beach at Blackpool Sands.

We were staying 3 doors down in a holiday cottage and 30 mins before our table reservation my brother wandered up to check that they had a highchair for his 6mo daughter. At this point the owner denied I had called to book the table. Despite this, they were willing to find us a table. Oh well, we thought.

Sadly, despite telling us she was happy to seat us for dinner, the owner / manager would not let the matter drop and continued to jibe and poke about the issue for the remainder of our stay in addition to generally being rude and obnoxious to our whole party. The other staff were all fine. Anyone with a modicum of business sense would let the matter lie, I can forgive a simple clerical error in failing to record the reservation properly. I cannot, however forgive the appalling lack of decorum and dedication to customer service that she demonstrated. At one point, when ordering drinks at the bar, she walked away half way through pouring my pint, with no explanation. The chap at the bar next to me chuckled "Was it something you said!?". When she returned, the first words she rather rudely sneered were "Have you figured out which pub you called yet?". I repeated, "This one" then pressed redial on my phone and we watched the phone ring together.

The food was nothing more than acceptable. Bog standard pub fare. Beer was at the tail end of the barrel.

“Very good food option if in the area”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

A couple of tables had been reserved on the week night we went but had no trouble getting seated. Starters were plentiful as was the main course. Beer battered mushrooms very tasty. Fish and chips were good and steak pie hearty. No room for dessert sadly. Warm service from the staff and good value for money. Would recommend.
