Popped in for an impromptu meal on an early Saturday evening. Lovely waitress Rosie found us a table and nothing was too much trouble. Tasty, fresh food served promptly and with a smile. We have been here so many times - it never fails to impress

A Saturday evening visit. The food was cooked perfectly to our liking and tasted amazing. We were surprised to get a booking late in the afternoon, however due to the location it appeared many people were taking a chance after an evening stroll. I think I would always book.

We had been highly recommended to go to the globe for lunch. It was quite a staid and traditional place , the toilet area could do with a good clean as you could smell them on the approach which is not nice. The four choice was very varied not a dedicated theme to good gastro pub style food. The service...

Stayed here for a Royal Marines charity golf day at Exeter Golf and Country Club. Nice rooms and excellent food with good quality service. Would recommend to anyone staying in Topsham, great location and nice walks as well.

My wife and I spent a night at the Globe and thought it would be nice to dine in. Unfortunately, the chef must have been having an "off day" because our starters, pickled herring and pork cheek were disappointing. The herring were soft, grey and mushy and the pork was wrapped in 'chewy' ham and bland. However, both of us...

We stayed In a 2 bed apartment in the hotel. Access is via your own door off the street but you do go past diners in the restaurant to get to your internal flat door. This can be a little weird but once you are in the flat it is excellent. Everything you could want is available in the kitchen....

We had a nice meal here. Food was a bit mixed- the lamb was especially good, some of the other meals standard pub food. The setting is lovely. We were a bit disappointed that we couldn't be accommodated at our preferred time when booking as it didn't seem that busy. Service was efficient.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, but the food was shocking £12.95 for a roast dinner that could have walked off the plate it was so raw.
