As storm Chiara crashed into the UK, we were blown into the safe haven of the impressive Globe restaurant. Looking for both a Sunday roast and alternatives for a main course, this cosy and welcoming restaurant came up trumps. A superbly presented roast beef, with exquisitely cooked vegetables and a confit of duck, with a honey and sherry jus, was exactly what we were hoping for. We look forward to returning and will be happy to keep an eye on the front door again, should the winds keep on blowing!

What can I say but thank you for stepping into the breach to become our doorman last Sunday lunch...appreciate it. So glad you enjoyed your meal despite the constant opening and closing of the front door. Our roasts are becoming very popular and our diners like to be able to choose another option from our A' La Carte menu. Aaah thanks for the offer of keeping an eye on the front door but I think we'll try and find you a table away from the elements outside !! Thanks once again.

We went as a party of 5 for Sunday lunch. The Globe has only just reopened after lockdown, all be it with much reduced seating for social distances. We were shown to our table straight away, we ordered drinks, We had already pre booked the traditional Sunday lunch, our lunch arrived within 15 minutes, a plate full of freshly prepared food, it was beef on the menu today, accompanied with Yorkshire pudding, gorgeous roast potatoes, the vegetables arrived separately, cauliflower cheese, parsnips, glazed carrots, & green beans, individually gravy boats completed the order. The lunch was a great success with our party, it took some eating because of our large portions but we got there, we left room for deserts, there were 5 to choose from, I myself had a cherry chocolate brownie with cherry sauce & with vanilla ice cream, which was very delicious. I must say this was our first time at the Globe, and it won’t be the last, the staff were friendly quick and efficient, we weren’t rushed which makes a change, so we felt totally relaxed. Price was very reasonable, so all in all 5 happy people, can’t wait to go back.

Dear Alan Thank you for this amazing and detailed review. Like so many businesses emerging from lockdown this has been a challenge but also one we were prepared to undertake. The support from our loyal customer base, friends, foodies and other independents has been so encouraging we are delighted with the first weekend back and seeing your review on Trip advisor has been the icing on the cake. Thanks once again.

We visited the Globe for Sunday lunch with friends. We had visited this restaurant previously for an anniversary dinner and were so impressed that we had to return. It is a family run business and it is very apparent that they have pride in the high standard of food served and in the high standard of customer service.We will certainly return and would highly recommend.

Dear Voyager, It was lovely to see you again and thanks for bringing your friends along to sample our cuisine. It was nice to chat to you about the herbs the chefs use and yes we should visit your allotment and maybe we can grow our own veg one day but probably best to stick to what we know best. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

We went here as a "bubble" of 6 people for lunch on Sunday and had the most fantastic time! Highly recommended! The menu was a really good selection including an amazing Sunday roast with all the trimmings (very generous helpings), but I can highly recommend the falafel starter - I would go back for this for sure. The chicken kiev schnitzel was generously covered with garlic butter (yummy) and the kedgeree fishcake looked amazing so I'm going to try that next time. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and the staff treated us incredibly well throughout. After the meal the chef came out to speak to us and we were (very easily) tempted into desserts and cheese. They also have a lovely outside sitting / dining area which I believe was created during lockdown, this is a real bonus and as the weather was lovely when we went, we sat outside and had drinks while we perused the menu. After lunch we went back out and had dessert there too, I can see why this restaurant is so well rated and I will personally look forward to returning. Keep up the excellent work!

Dear Boo, Thank you so much for leaving us this wonderful review. We love Sundays here, its so lovely seeing families and friends get together and enjoy each others company over some good food and delightful wines. I must agree the Kedgeree fishcake looked and smelt amazing it is a very popular dish with many diners. Yes you are correct we did develop the courtyard during lock down and so glad we did. We've had a few good afternoons/evenings out there !!! Looking forward to your second visit.

We have just eaten Sunday Lunch at the Globe and as usual the food is excellent. The Roast beef was superb, beautiful and good quality vegetable and fantastic Yorkshire puddings. As I am on a diet i had the pan seared tuna which was so good and the chef was good enough to remove the potatoes and add in more sweet peppers. During lockdown Steve and Claire have worked hard and now there is a lovely courtyard where we enjoyed a drink when we visited them last week. We cant recommend this restaurant highly enough

Wow Wow Wow !!! Thanks for this superb review. We did actually sell out of the Roast Beef this Sunday and we're really pleased with the feedback people have given. Being a small family owned business we can make adjustments to the dishes to cater for different dietary requests. Thanks for mentioning the courtyard it was a struggle to get it finished with all the restrictions of lockdown but we're really happy with the result and great to see people coming outside to enjoy it. Also thanks for your advice on the herbs. Looking forward to your next visit and more gardening tips !!

Brought my partner to Worcester for a birthday weekend as a surprise. After booking hotels etc., he unexpectedly told me he really fancied a roast dinner on his birthday which was on a Sunday. Quickly hit trip advisor to search for a good roast dinner in the area and 'The Globe' popped up. After viewing the reviews and the photos, decided this would do the trick! Telephoned the owner to book a table. Arrived on the day and was not disappointed. It was the best Sunday roast we have ever had! Enough to feed an army, with every element delicious in it's own right. Beautiful surroundings, excellent service and friendly owners. My partner was delighted and the birthday candle in the dessert at the end was a nice touch. Highly recommend and will definitely visit again when in the area.

Dear Dorismineral Thank you for your review we appreciate each and every one of them. So glad your partner had one of "the best Sunday lunches he had ever had" for his birthday treat. Its great to meet someone with a passion for cauliflowers although it was funny when he couldn't finish the extra side order of cauliflower beignets !!....Please pop by when you're next in Worcester. Thanks again

A visit to Worcester for a friends birthday is the only reason I got the opportunity to visit the Globe.I would have never come across it if we were strolling around Worcester and had decided to have lunch or an early evening meal. The fact I am bothering to take the time to leave this review can in its self speak volumes. It is an absolute Gem !! On arrival it was an extremely professional organised greeting insuring covid rules are adeared to . The team were so friendly and it has that perfect balance of personal / professional service that some how in the last few years has been lost but in the Globe they definitely make the whole experience special . I cannot praise it enough and as i sat there waiting for my food and chatting to my friends I had no real expectation of how beautiful the food was going to be .To me my main focus talking to the friends I hadn’t seen in a year . I had chicken confit ( was a set menu as pre order was required) The chiefs ability to make everything on the plate absolutely delicious didn’t stop on main . My pudding was the nicest pudding I have ever had banoffe toffee crumble (this man is extremely talented chief) After we all sat out side talking and it was a lovely tranquil setting in the heart of Worcester. When in Worcester this is going to be my ‘go to ‘restaurant looking forward to the next meal I try because a friend said to me every time they go they try something different and it’s always amazing food. Had to put this in my review as this has never happened in all the years we have been eating out ... . On returning from the toilet My other half commented how great the men’s toilets smelled a conversation we never had I just don’t think it’s a mans normal conversation . 🤣

Wow, Wow, Wow!!!! Thank you so much for this detailed review of your time with us last weekend and the weather made it extra special. Its so lovely to finally see friends and family getting together after such an extraordinary year and at last we can now serve you inside with the added benefit of our courtyard for drinks afterwards. So glad you enjoyed the chicken confit and the banoffee toffee crumble with our homemade white chocolate and banana ice cream.. Haha love the closing comment about our toilets....Looking forward to your next visit.

When the opportunity to eat out arises it’s hard not to pick Globe Bistro. Eating with family for lunch, we all went for the choices on the set menu, which is excellent value at £25 for three courses. Broccoli and spinach soup, chicken Kiev schnitzel and the ‘to die for’ lemon meringue cheesecake which has got to be my all time fave dessert. Fab food and super service! Thank you!

Dear Mineycat Thank you for your review. Our set-menu is proving to be very popular on Thursday evenings and Saturday lunchtimes so thank you very much for highlighting that. I agree the lemon meringue cheesecake does have the Wow!! factor. Thanks once again.

As soon as you enter this wonderful restaurant you are greeted by friendly staff. The food is absolutely fantastic. I had the most gorgeous chicken in a wonderful sauce and others with us had steak and gammon also fantastic tasting and beautifully served. Great wine list and beer options. Would advise booking as it unsurprisingly gets very busy.

Dear Pingu Thank you for choosing to come and dine with us..and if I remember correctly one of your party was celebrating a birthday..I hope they had a nice time. The Chicken Diane is new on our menu so really pleased you liked it. Our wine supplier Berkmanns have an extensive catalog of wines and they really are so lovely. Thank you for mentioning booking...yes indeed Friday and Saturday nights are really busy so bookings are recommended. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Excellent meal, would recommend the souffle starter and definitely the felafel. Husband found the peppercorn sauce with the steak a little strong, but steak excellent. Chocolate brownie with sauce and ice cream wonderful. We had booked for 7.45, it was then or too earlier a booking for us, our taxi was booked for after 10.30. Enjoyed the meal, nice ambience to the restaurant. However, when we were coming to the end of our meal the restaurant was emptying. We were brought the bill before requesting it. We asked if we coud have a tea/coffee before leaving and were starting to feel as if we should be departing, this was before 10.30. When I asked for a cup of tea I was informed that the 'machine' was off'. It would have been nice that an offer was made for a kettle could be used to make one cup of tea, the owners apparently live above the restaurant and there were two members of staff sitting in the restaurant. Our Hungarian waiter was delightful and amusing and the food overall very good, but the evening was rather tarnished by its ending and the feeling that we should 'be gone' before 10.30. Will return again but will try to get an earlier table!

A fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxed and I can honestly say the food was probably the best I have ever experienced in my life with the added bonus of experiencing desserts to die for. The staff were very attentive and extremely friendly without being intrusive.. I highly recommend this amazing place and although it was far away as we live in London I look forward to returning.

Dear Junes187 Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this lovely review. To say "The food was probably the best I have experienced in my life" is truly wonderful praise for our dedication to provide the best dishes possible -thanks once again. Tripadvisor is a fantastic marketing tool for restaurants to reach customers further than the confines of their local area so its always great to see people from London and only yesterday we had visitors from Southampton and Cheshire. Would love to see you and your wonderful friends again soon.

We turned up early for our reservation which was no issue for the restaurant and were seated immediately which we appreciated however we were then left for over 15 minutes without being asked if we’d like a drink which seemed a little odd. When we did place a drinks order we said we were ready to order food also. The menu is concise and as you’d expect classically French which we hoped was a good sign of what was to come. The Shiraz we ordered was very good although the waiting staff were rather glum with little interaction. Our starters were a Stilton Panna Cotta which was very tasty but the presentation was sadly lacking, my other half ordered the Soup de Poisson which was poor, the consistency was grainy and gritty, the garlic rouille was dreadfully hot to the taste due to the garlic and the croutons were soggy with no crispness at all. For mains the Kedgeree Fishcake was delicious although the Katsu Curry Sauce wasn’t like any Katsu I’d had previously. Unfortunately for my wife her choice wasn’t enjoyable. She chose the Chicken Schnitzel Kiev which was overbearing on the garlic side yet again, we appreciate that it’s a garlic butter but it was very overpowering to the point of making her feel unwell for a considerable time after. Our desserts were clearly made on-site and weren’t up to scratch, the brownie was extremely powdery and as such not pleasant to eat and the Frangipane had little taste be-it the fruit or almonds both served with not enough of each of the ice creams. All in all the experience was underwhelming with poorly balanced and overbearing flavours, we won’t be in a rush to return.

Called in on the off chance of a table and we were welcomed to a cosy table in the corridor. There in front of us was an ample supply of cookery books to persist whilst we waited for out food. The started of soufflé was quite nice but the Gloucester old spot lunch was absolutely wonderful, couldn’t fault any part of it. The portions were so generous that we didn’t finish and it was all cooked to perfection. This was out first visit and we will definitely be returning.

Spectacular food and drink. Staff were attentive and helpful. After we had finished our food we sat in the garden and drank wine. The Owners/chef came and sat out side with us and chatted with and was an education in food, drink and were great company. Would highly recommend eating her if you visit Worcester.

This was our first visit to the Globe and we were delighted with the experience. I can endorse all the other very positive reviews. We chose the Sunday roast and it was the best of its kind that we’ve ever had in a restaurant. The complimentary homemade cheese straws presented as appetisers were a perfect start. Then the main course arrived after exactly the right interval, just as we were finishing our aperitifs. Beautifully cooked (rare sirloin with all the trimmings and a lovely selection of veg), all perfectly seasoned, with impeccable service. Loved it all.
