A lovely evening, good food and drink, then a comfortable quiet nights sleep (apart from the father-In-law snoring !!!!!

We popped in on the off chance. We were offered a table and had Roasted Smoked Haddock on Crushed New Potatoes with Poached Egg and Chive Sauce. It was presented very well. The waiting staff appeared to be lacking experience. Indeed the Globe has had a lovely makeover. Overall a very pleasant meal in nice surroundings.
We did not stay.

The recently refurbished Globe is a lovely place to stay in Topsham. Right in the centre of town. We came down from London on the train to Exeter, then caught the branch line to Topsham. Dead easy and only a 10 minute walk to The Globe. Our room was lovely with a fantastic shower! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfast.
Don't come by car - use the train. It's dead easy to get around by train, bus, boat or bike!

My colleague and I stayed at the Globe last night and the food was absolutely fantastic, It was the best monkfish and prawn curry I have ever had with baby coriander which looked and tasted wonderful!

Our room was very stylish and generous with the most comfortable bed, I am very happy to recommend the Globe and look forward to returning.

This has been restored recently & is very good for light lunches or suppers. The owners have kept the original beams & paneling instead of modernising everything.The staff are very professional & helpful & we will certainly return .

The Globe has been recently refurbished throughout and it looks amazing! All the bedrooms have been beautifully redesigned with real attention to detail. The bar and restaurant really show off the best of this historic building.

The staff were really welcoming and attentive and the food menu was great.

The Globe is close to the train station (it is only 15 minutes on the train to Exeter City Centre and about the same by car). It is also very close to River Exe and the estuary for scenic walks. Topsham is a lovely little town.

Gorgeously comfortable beds!

I would really recommend a visit!

The hotel has just had a refurbishment and my family and I was lucky to test run the Family and Friends evening/stay. Well I am not just saying that because my cousin is now the new manager of The Globe but the experience was fantastic. Staff was very professional and could not do enough for you. (My father is a bit of a fuss pot and he was well looked after by our waitress) The food was divine (I do recommend the T-Bone steak!!). The bar area was very snug and cosy, there was a good range of beer, which my husband got through very happily.
We stayed in Room 9. The décor has been finished to a high standard. The bed was just heaven and had no problems getting to sleep. There is plenty of tea/coffee/hot chocolate selection to make yourself a brew in the morning. Everything has been thought of. Hair dryers, shampoos and shower gel (and not in those tiny containers you get in other hotels). The room was spotless.
It is set in a lovely location and we only wished it was not raining so we could have walked around the village and the river. Getting to Topsham was really easy to find and not at all far from Exeter itself.

Room Tip: Room 9 was just outside the back door and up some stairs. Very private and not at all noisy.
