The Globe reviews

By Marta W.

Standard beers, and standard foods, but all of a reasonably good standard. Very handy for Baker St tube. This is a fairly nice pub to spend some time, but I wouldn't make a specific trip.

By Samuel C.

I was there numerous time while stationed at RAF Lakenheath, food was awesome and atmosphere as well. I would like if some one could please tell me the name of the Pear beer thta comes solely from Wales. It was the most delicious drink I have ever had. Trying to see if I could get some imported to the US.

By Linda A.

Worst food I have ever had must be really difficult to ruin ham, egg and chips. Chips overcooked, egg served broken did not look appetising Portions really small but just as well because food almost inedible. Will not be revisiting

By Jade W.

This pub is awesome i love everything about it.

I would definitely recommend going there the staff are friendly and the food is great.

The two guys that run the place are very nice would make a special trip to drink at this pub.

I went to The Globe during mid Sunday afternoon, the beer was cold and good quality, served by friendly Australian barman with an unusual Mohawk hairstyle. The homemade pie was a supreme meal, if somewhat pricey. The Globe's a nice place.

Located opposite Baker Street station, the Globe is a Taylor Walker pub that's popular with the scores of tourists who flock to the famous attractions nearby.

The Venue
The Globe is fairly large and set out on two floors – the upper of which (given the rather predictable title The Sherlock Bar) is exclusively for dining. Downstairs, it’s all sticky floors and tables, fruit machines, and dingy wall paper – expense has definitely been spared.

The venue’s outside area is on top of Marylebone Road, where the throngs of customers are encouraged to rest their drinks on one of several rotund barrels or on several long trestle table to the side.

The Atmosphere
The pub’s popularity is almost certainly down to its location – evenings play host to a steady influx of tourists and an after work drinks crowd who favour convenience above comfort – meaning that the place has all the noise and clamour without any of the charm to justify it. Bar staff are efficient enough but somewhat harried and downtrodden.

The Food
The food menu - which helpfully includes a Union Jack flag key to indicate “Classic British favourites” – is a bit on the steep side for what you get. Main meals like steak and ale pie (£9.45) and bangers and mash (£8.49) are available alongside sharing platters (£10 to £12) and lighter bites such as jacket potatoes (£5.15 to £5.75) and sandwiches (£5 to £6).

The Drink
The expected lagers such as Becks, Kronenbourg and Stella Artois are available on draught (averaging at £4 a pint), and a fair selection of big name bottled beers and ciders (including Aspall) is also present. Commendably, several options for real ale are on offer at any given time, and are sourced from a range of breweries including Young’s and Adnams. The wine list is brief and unfussy, with house bottles priced at £14.79.

The Last Word
Weary travellers and eager tourists could do worse than stop off here for a pint, but the authentic London pub experience the venue sells itself as providing is not one that is worth repeating.
