We walked to the Globe on bank holiday Monday 2 January. The coffee machine was broken, the staff told us that they didn't expect to be so busy as they didn't know it was a bank holiday. They were overwhelmed with visitors and were getting quite stressed. It wasn't the relaxing lunch treat we wanted.

This used to be a lovely place to visit for a meal and something to drink by the canal. Those days are long gone and we are just left with the Rotten remains. Came for a meal with my husband on his 40th birthday, and initially the girl that served us our drinks couldn't do enough for us and was... More

Had a very good Sunday lunch with family. Nothing too much bother and brought us extra gravy (some of my family just love to drown their lunch) It was busy but service was good despite this.

I had lunch there on 27th December in a party of four. Service was slow to say the least, almost an hour to get served. My Ultimate Fish and Chips was deep fried to almost non existence. The prawns could equally have been cashew nuts, so hard and small. To top it I joined my grand niece in an ice... More

We had not booked a table for the 28th December at about 2.30pm but thought we would take a chance. The car park was relatively empty so thought all would be well. Despite there being several tables empty and some requiring cleaning we were told that there was an hour and a half wait. There appeared to be 3 members... More

We have been to this pub many times for drinks on family walks. We did the same yesterday and tried to order hot drink, the only thing available was tea or coffee?? So we ordered our drinks then waited 25 minutes for them to arrive, ok we accepted this may have been a mistake and they missed our order. After... More
