Really great old pub decor, the green tiles on the wall and the polished concrete floor create a lovely traditional English pub feel. We wanted pie and chips but they were out of pastry so we had fish and chips and scampi and chips. We also ordered a kids meal for the little one, cod with skinny fries and free... More

Firstly I am sorry that you had to remind the staff about the kids free ice cream. This should have been offered when your plates were cleared, we... More

Enjoyed coming to the globe with family while visiting Wells. Great food at reasonable prices, right in the town centre. Friendly service was great. Kids fish & chips was a hit with ours & the burgers are fantastic.

Found this pub on an evening walkabout in Wells looking for somewhere to eat. Just off the main streets. Had a great range of Cask Marque ales. Good range of meals, from burgers and steaks to specials. We opted for mains and desserts. Pulled pork burger and chicken and BBQ sauce requested without cheese. Dessert choices were chocolate brownie and... More

Called into the Globe in Wells for lunch, food was great, they have a little courtyard at the back where we sat in the glorious sunshine. Also dog friendly - they provided a bowl of water for our two collies. (They have a beautiful collie themselves called Oscar - I nearly left with him!) well worth a visit, good food... More

Was pleasantly surprised by the food in here. It was easy to get gluten free roast options and there was plenty of food and good cider. Will go back soon as it is reasonably priced too.

Venison burger to recover from long morning of walking. Hearty but nothing special, more blue cheese in the burger would have been cool
