Really beautiful & comfortable old inn. Exceptionally well decorated, really felt quite luxurious! Great pub to have a drink in too. Everyone is very friendly, particularly Bailey the pub dog if you get to meet him. Topsham is beautiful and so are the surroundings - The Globe is the perfect place to stay after a day's exploring.

Room and bathroom were a good size. Breakfast buffet and cooked breakfast lovely, but had to pay extra. Food at the Globe in the evening was also very good. Topsham is a lovely town with a couple of other pubs for meals too. Only down side was that the parking is a couple of minutes walk away in a paying...

Have just returned from a relaxing two night break at The Globe, stayed in a courtyard room which was very stylish and comfortable,beautifully clean and with all the facilities required. The bed was much too soft for us but thats a personal preference and the room was a little too hot and stuffy and quite dimly lit. Bathroom was very...

Visited the bar recently for the first and last time. The prices charged are a joke for a high street fairly standard bar. Would have walked out and refused to pay had I not have been with two guests. I almost fell over when the barmaid said £28.45 for two small bottles of water, medium wine, pint of beer, coffee...

We have stayed here a few times now and I've finally found time to write a review! There's always a warm welcome in the cozy bar and the rooms are excellent. We have stayed in different ones each time and found them all to be of a very high standard with excellent bathrooms. We've also eaten here on several occasions...

All rooms in The Globe have recently been refurbished to a high standard. We stayed in room 19 overlooking the courtyard which was very comfortable but a little hot and stuffy. It would have better if you could open the bathroom skylight to get a flow of air. It was also a little dark. Apart from these little things the...
