Cracking beers, superb food menu, friendly and professional staff and pub with loads of history and character. Sandwiches and beer in the garden with family sat in the sunshine in beautiful Topsham- Saturday afternoons don't get much better than this!

We booked a table for Mothers Day. We have eaten here many times but our experience this time was different. We asked if the Roast Pork came with crackling and were told it did. When it arrived it did not have any so we asked for it. Several minutes later we were told that the cook burnt it and there...

Thank you for posting yet another review for the Globe. Your previous reviews have always been very complimentary so we are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. Our team and managers have not changed however we do have quite a few team members to enable us to cover all day every day. The pork is...

It might be a small menu for the lunchtime special but WOW! Amazing food. Great presentation & brilliant flavours. They've definitely got an outstanding chef. The staff were so helpful, adapting a meal for our veggie friend who fancied the non veggie meal. All in all - the best St Austell pub in the SW without a doubt!

I visited with my partner who isn't very adventurous with his food choices. There was plenty of choice to suit us both. I had blackend cod which was delicious, my partner had cider cured ham egg & chips which was also really good. We stayed over in one of the court yard rooms which were very spacious & modern. Would...

I along with 2 friends booked for a Saturday night stay. Very impressed with our rooms in 'boutique' style, lovely and warm with a well equipped bathroom( only downside there was the shower curtain, shame not a screen).

As we live nearby we regularly go into Topsham on Saturdays for shopping in the market and lunch. We have used many of the venues in Topsham over the years and have now been going to the Globe Hotel since it was taken over by a well known brewery and was extensively refurbished. We keep going because we find the...

Another visit to The Globe with family for lunch. My partner went for one of the specials - turkey, stuffing & mushroom pie with mash & peas - best pie he has ever had! Lovely presentation. Was told it would be about 20 mins but it didn't feel that long. Good service as always.
