Just had to write another review as once again Rachel and Neil produced another extremely enjoyable evening - of a different type - taster - 5 courses at a special price of £20.00 per head for Mad March! Once all diners were seated and had their drinks the fun started. The appropriate cutlery was brought to each table and then the special taster dish was served by the brilliant waitress. The dishes were then announced by Neil (owner/head chef) and everyone tucked in. It was simply gorgeous and very well organised. Well done yet again the Globe and Rainbow.

This is a well regarded country inn, just off the busy A21. It has a comfortable bar and wooden floored dining area. On our visit there were good real ales from Harveys and the nearby Old Dairy Brewery in Cranbrook. For lunch we had lambs liver and bacon on mash, fish pie with leeks and pie of the day with brocoli and mash. These were all well served and up to a good standard. The staff were friendly and helpful, which always makes a visit enjoyable(other pubs- please note !) We paid £52 for our 4 main courses with 5 drinks, and went away happy.There is a good outside terrace for warm weather, and and an effective log-burner for the cooler months. There were notices regarding special menu evenings and tapas.

We stopped at this pub while exploring the area, and we are delighted that we did! The place is cosy and friendly, and was filled with people of all ages. The small number of cars in the parking area compared to the number of people inside indicates that there are a lot of locals walking to the pub for a lunch.

The staff were all friendly, and the pub was spotless.

Our food was superb, far exceeding good pub food, but was at average pub prices. I understand fully while the locals keep going back.

This is our second review of the best place to eat in the area, the food is really much much more than pub food. Neil is an excellent host and Rachel and her team are friendly and attentive. As important its really reasonable prices. We have taken friends many times and they agree about the quality of the place and the food in particular. We have also had many Sunday roasts here but to give an example there is always a varied menu sometimes with game. Its such a shame we are moving away from the area as we will really miss this place but hope to return when we are in the area visiting friends and family. Thanks Neil and Rachel!!!

The staff are friendly and offer a warm welcome. The food is very good and certainly not just general pub food. The price is incredibly generous. This place is an asset to the locality.
