We stayed in the courtyard room with our son and dog. The room was well presented with subtle hues. Lovely white brick tiled bathroom and the most comfortable bed. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially Tomas. The food was delicious. Well above pub food standard. A very tempting menu. I have to mention that when we asked for Nutella for...

Well-equipped twin room with a good shower and lavatory en-suite. The beds were very comfortable. A high quality dinner (reviewed separately) and breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled egg: poached haddock and kippers also available. My only fear would be that, in the summer when Topsham must be heaving, the dining / drinking(?) in the courtyard could be noisy. The...

We had a good stay at the Globe in Topsham. After a warm welcome we found our room, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Because of the age of the inn, the windows were single glazed so it was a little bit draughty, but nothing worth complaining about. The staff were very attentive and polite. We had a very good meal in...

We had a room in the main building above the bar. The was a little noise but nothing that disturbed us. The room itself was was comfortable and a good size, it was also clean and tidy. The service was good and friendly and my wife and I enjoyed our overnight stay whilst we were in the area.

This was the perfect place to take our student son turning 21 together with parents and grandparents. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Well cooked food from menu that has enough variety but not too ambitious. Portions plentiful. Nice relaxed atmosphere with great service. Much more than a pub, a really nice restruarant experience.

We stayed at The Globe for a night, and it was a very enjoyable stay. I will mention the slight negatives first, which are the car park, only in use in the Winter I believe, and a challenge to get in/out of! Despite the best efforts of the staff, I still got blocked in by a selfish fellow guest meaning...

The Globe was warm and very welcoming when we arrived for our booking. We were taken to a lovely table and the server was prompt to get our drinks order and explain the specials available. I had a specific question about an option on the menu which was dealt with without making me feel fussy or difficult and the four...

We stayed for 1 night in January, room was very comfortable and recently refurbished, the staff and hospitality were excellent and our evening meal and breakfast both 10 out of 10. We will be highly recommending to all our friends. Lovely central location for topsham and easy access to lovely walking and cycle paths.

We visited the Globe last night for a works night out, we have been here on a number of occasions with work. The food as always was very nice, no problems on that score and the service was good. What we are very disappointed with is - this is now the third consecutive occasion where we have been over charged....

Dear Woodesclan1 Thank you for your review regarding your visit to the Globe restaurant on Saturday 31st January. We were sorry to hear that you were charged for a bottle of wine rather than a glass of wine. Please accept our sincere apologies for this. The team member needs to remember to select the glass size required first otherwise the...

The Globe is a delightful old inn and its menu is very attractive. I had lunch with a friend, and we both decided on the steak and kidney pie, which was beautifully presented with smooth mash, green beans and a dinky little pot of amazing red wine jus. The pie was the best I have ever had - well-shaped, well-flavoured...
