Just had dinner in bar at the Globe and yet again so pleased with the quality and service in this fantastic pub/restaurant. The staff are very helpful and professional with brilliant service. Great food with a varied ,local menu. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Did not stay but a happy local customer. Would happily recommend to friends or relatives.

We stayed two nights here in a courtyard room (#11). We chose The Globe as we had two spaniels. Our room was very comfortable. Often dog owners get shoved into the smallest room but this was large with a huge comfortable bed. Shower was first class -though oddly no towel rails.
Both breakfast and dinner were terrific and service very good. Staff all over were very friendly and helpful.
Loved the real ales and the pub area was very cosy with the real fire.
Parking somewhat tight to say the least but there is a very cheap car park just 100m away so unload and park there. Would deffinatley like to return. Topsham is a lovely village!

I stayed for one night on a business trip and will stay here again when in the area. The staff for hotel, bar & restaurant were helpful but not intrusive. Room was comfortable, quiet and the food was very good.

Arriving in Topsham amidst some of the worst weather in decades did not bode well for the rest of the weekend. The Inn is easily found though parking is not so. The car park is accessed from Fore street through a very narrow arch that bares the scars of previous encounters. Once in, it's clear that there must be somewher else to park. After a (potentially very expensive) foray to the Swimming Pool car park, we decamped to reception to book in and enquire. Sure enough, rather than the £8 or so at the aforementioned, we were redirected to a much heaper and (as it turened out) much closer one in the back streets. Just ask. The staff are more than just helpful.

The rooms were lovely, well sized and furnished and the bathrooms excellent. Though we did not eat dinner there, the menu looks lovely and the diners we did see were enjoying good helpings of what looked like very good food.

The bar, we did use and lovely it was too. Good St Austell beer and excellent service.

A good nights sleep in a large comfortable bed prepared us for a wonderful cooked breakfast which set us up for the 200 plus mile journey back to Bedfordshire.

Staff were excellent and very knowledgeable about other places in the village.

.... The Mighty Saints beat Exeter in the last three minutes so....

Room Tip: Some rooms are over the bar others face the quiet courtyard. Up to you, though there are only 19 ro...

One night stay, but will return again. We had one of the old waney floor rooms over the bar, but the noise did not keep us awake. Beer is excellent, breakfast also. Staff were more than helpful. Really can't recommend it too highly.

Parking is an issue even in winter - in summer that might be problematic as the hooray-henries are always bedblocking down by the harbour (so my brither and sister who live inTopsham inform me).

Room Tip: It's not far to stagger to rooms 1 & 2.

We visit this hotel on a regular basis and the service is always good and the staff friendly and welcoming.

On Saturday we attended their Burn's Night Dinner and had an amazing evening. The quality of the food was exceptional. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the entertainment.

We had a really excellent evening and would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Sorry, touched swimming pool rating in error - there isn't one?

This was my visit to Topsham and we had a very pleasant experience at the Globe. The staff were friendly and fun from check in at reception, in the bar and the restaurant. We stayed in a room above the bar - the room was a good size, well appointed (superb shower!) and immaculately presented. Some friends who had children with them had a family room which was equally nice. There was some noise from the bar but after all it was New Year's Eve and I was fairly oblivious to it!! Breakfast was excellent and we would have no hesitation in staying there again. One big plus point is that the hotel does have parking which is a big bonus in the town.
