Aqualung . left this review about The Globe

This corner pub consists of a long smallish L shaped room with a wooden floor. There were no less than four TV screens showing the World Cup even though there were only a few in. It was also having a very bad hair day as the landlord said that he had been waiting for a delivery. The three hand pumps were all unused and half of the mainstream rubbish was not on. I ended up with the John Smiths Smooth Crap (£3.50) which failed to impress.

Roger Button left this review about Globe & Ale House

My 2003 Good Pub Guide describes the Globe & Ale House as a “small low ceilinged tavern with lots of old pictures, artifacts and an enthusiastic helpful landlord offering at least 4 ales”. Somewhere along the lines it all went to pot then. Ales seem to be a bit of a lucky dip as to availability and when I did pluck up the enthusiasm to enter during one of its quiter moments, all I found was a poor quality Old Speckled Hen. The other 2 pumps were off (they also appeared to be Greene King IPA and Abbott although this isn't actually a Greene King pub to my knowledge). The interior has been ripped apart in an unsympathetic refurbishment (presumably when the Ale House moniker also disappeared) and only a remnant of a window pane near the front doorway remains from any of its traditional décor or furnishings. Plasmas come at you from all angles but it is compettion with the music - either show the match or play the music – not both please! The only thing of note is an old newspaper front page but this is now concealed by a fruit machine. You can tell where the priorities lie in this place. On a Friday and Saturday night the place is crawling with meat heads and disco dollies but the general public on the street are kept safe by the bouncers. A total waste of what was once probably a half decent pub and out of the 50 odd pubs I visited during the week, this was certainly not one of the better ones.
