Camping close by, the weather turned and we wanted a place to eat. Having read good reviews of the pub, we went in and found ourselves to be one of three families eating. It's a small pub, but good. Banoffee Walnut waffles were amazing. The...More

We stopped by the Globe having seen the reviews on this site and we weren't disappointed! The wait for the food was acceptable despite the fact they tell you there could be a wait as the food is freshly prepared each time. The food was...More

This pub was a walk from our holiday cottage. It served delicious food, locally sourced and cooked lovingly. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We have certain allergies and they accommodated our requirements brilliantly. The decor could do with an update, it felt very...More

This is a real pub, a locals pub. And, astonishingly, it serves the most fantastic meals; food which is much classier than regular 'pub grub'. Everything we had last night was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and efficient. We'll definitely...More

Very friendly and welcoming with lovely food. We had children and a dog in our party and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit.

A wonderful welcome was had at this lovely 'proper' pub. The landlord and landlady were lovely. The waitress was great at her job, efficient and friendly. The food was really fantastic, the desserts were to die for! Sat in the pretty, quiet beer garden in...More

We are a local pub that welcomes visitors. Chef Ash rents the kitchen from us and prepares and sources all his meals. He uses mainly local ingredients. We are quite small and so do not have a separate dining room although we do have an area set aside for meals. There is a large sunny garden and a car park to the rear of the pub. Dogs are welcome. Children should be off the premises by 9 pm to comply with our licencing restrictions but can stay a bit later if they are still finishing a meal. We are a pub that serves good food and not a restaurant.
