Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Globe

Side-street alehouse with an elongated bar, an attractive side lounge and another side room at the back. Run by Banks & Taylor, although I couldn't see any of its beers on the eight of 12 operational handpumps. Having said that, the choice of guest ales in a range of styles was excellent, with a couple from Mallinson's and others from smaller breweries elsewhere around the country (e.g. Massey's Golden Bitter from the Heritage Brewing Company in Burton, £3.50). Also has a draught cider and a range of bottled beers (examples of which are on display around the bar, along with a fine display of pump clips and other breweriana).

Called into this 2019 Good Beer Guide pub, and what a sight along the bar with an array of cask beers. It is a B&T pub and there were 3 of their beers on, plus Clearwater Mariners, Trumans Zephyr, Oxford Craft Beer (Shotover) Triploid, Brunswick Offilers Nut Brown, Bath Frosty Hare. Colchester Brass Monkey and Everards Tiger. It is a true locals pub too, and would be great to live close to. Lovely atmosphere and good service for the 20 of us that turned up. We sampled and enjoyed 5 of the beers on offer.

A rather unprepossessing looking place on approaching, situated on a backstreet corner and with the pub sign missing from its bracket although the Banks and Taylor signage give some clue as to what lies within.
Once inside there is an elongated L-shaped space with boarded flooring, a partially deep red ceiling, wainscoted walls and a front wood burning stove set in an old fireplace. The bar is in the front corner, stretching along to the side. At first you see three pumps but several more are to be found along the side offering an exceptional range. Yesterday found Everard's Tiger, Rockhopper Pale, from B&T there were Little Sheff, Black Squirrel, Shefford Bitter and Shefford Pale Ale, additionally Evan Evans Jester, Batemans XXXB, Bude Summerleaze Golden Ale, something called Blazing Saddles, couldn't read the brewery plus a couple more I didn't record as well as a perry from Cornish Orchards and a cider. Milton Cyclops had appeared when we returned for a last one before the journey home. A very good line up indeed and most beers enjoyed by our group of four. One turned up vinegary but was changed without any fuss or question, always a good sign.
The bar has a huge number of CAMRA awards displayed above the gantry and throughout the pub high shelves display beer bottles and hundreds of pump clips. Shelves contain beer related books including various editions of the GBG.
There is a bit of a beaten up sofa down the far end but generally seating is traditional with cushioned benches and chairs at tables for four with some larger reclaimed dining tables too. Decor includes plenty of breweriana such as mirrors and old brewery advertisements, Fremlins, Bass, Greenalls amongst others. A shelf has a range of trophies with ironically placed clips beneath for the likes of Fosters, Guinness Extra Cold, John Smith's Smooth and more.
There is a usable dartboard right at the far end beyond a recessed area which may be a storage space or may be part of the pub, unsure on that one. An outdoor area to the rear remains unvisited. The gents' facilities have framed short jokey phrases and ditties above the urinals.
Easily the best of the pubs we visited in Dunstable and certainly deserving of the title "Destination Pub", do not miss this one if in town.
