Well what's not to like about this beautiful pub. Great staff, great food and beautiful location. Can't wait to visit again specially on a lovely summers day.

We arrived at 12 and were told politely that the restaurant was fully booked, but we were welcome to eat in the bar. We duly chose a table by the window and ordered the Sunday roast at £10 per head. When it arrived, it was very tasty and cooked well, only being let down slightly by roast potatoes which were... More

Thank you for your lovely review of The Globe, we do like to hear when our guests have a great time. I love a good Sunday roast myself especially in a nice cosy pub with real ale available. We are now starting our rotation of guest ales so be sure to return to sample some. More

Impromptu Sunday surprise for our grandson. Chose this pub because others were busy and the particular location is quite exciting to reach for a young boy. You have to drive over the canal on a tiny bridge then along the towpath to reach the pub. On arrival we were told the restaurant was fully booked - despite the fact that... More

Many thanks for your review, I'm very sorry to read that you did not enjoy your visit. Our restaurant was indeed fully booked yesterday lunchtime, however we space the bookings out so that we can give you the service that your deserve, this clearly worked as you were served quickly and found the front of house team able to help...

An early Saturday evening meal. Insufficient staff with a nonchalant attitude (3 to cover the bar and restaurant) meant that one course took an hour and three quarters. We gave up on dessert / coffee. By the time we left, it was easier for the staff to list what was on the menu rather than what wasn't. They really should... More

Many thanks for your review, I'm very sorry to hear of your disappointment. We did stock out of some items on Saturday as these are items that we were removing in preparation for our new menu, I'm sorry if this was not explained to you at the time. Apologies for there being insufficient team levels, we base our numbers on... More

Took some French friends to the Globe, with some trepidation after reading recent reviews here. We received a very warm welcome. The restaurant was full but we were invited to sit in the bar area to eat. Having been told that there was a 45 minute wait for food, it arrived much sooner. We had lamb shanks and the duo... More

We had a lovely meal here - food was fab, atmosphere is lovely, short on staff the day we visited only one person taking orders and serving drinks so we felt a bit sorry for her but other than that a lovely birthday meal and it's a very popular place due to its location by the canal and being such...

Stopped by for lunch. Great location by the canal and nice homely feel inside. The pub wasn't especially busy, maybe 20 customers inside. Went to bar to order food and drinks, no staff so I wait.... Start looking for staff and return to bar and wait... 5 minutes elapse then 3 members of staff come to the bar and take... More

Four us went for lunch on a Monday; the waitress was good, we ordered drinks no problem and we ordered three sandwiches and the chicken fajitas and were told it would take about 20 minutes; so far, so good but it went rapidly downhill from there!

The Globe is always a great place to visit; on the banks of the Grand Union canal a mile or two outside Leighton Buzzard. With plenty of seating inside and out giving a choice of sitting on the canal bank/garden, in the many small areas in the bar, or in the more formal restaurant. It's walkable along the towpath from... More
