This is without doubt thee best pub in Dorset, excellent food and service, nothing is to much trouble, it is not part of a chain and they capitalise on this by not allowing children under 5, a policy which is highly commended after all there...More

As I write this, I am still in The Globe. The food was so good I had to write about it almost immediately. I had the pork ribs and paprika chicken. It was all served piping hot and quite quickly given how busy it was....More

I’ve never review here before but about my 5th time visiting, actually quite disappointed with the food looked great just tasted bland. I hope this one experience won’t put me off their food as it’s usually good standard

Wonderful food, excellent service and atmosphere. Even after the Bank Holiday, this place was so busy, but the service was still high. The Thai fishcakes were second to none. It's a pity we go back home in the morning, otherwise we would be back there...More

A most enjoyable evening. Excellent food and great value for money in a very pleasant atmosphere. We had a set meal and felt the portions were very generous.

Found this via trip advisor and it was lovely. Had outdoors dining and on the wonderful weather it was great. All the staff were attentive and approachable and liked a chat. Cannot wait until my next visit down here go try again.
