The Globe Inn, Appley Cross, Stawley, Wellington, Somerset
Pick a fine day when you’re staying at Fuzzy Orchard or Ham Bottom and stroll up through the fields to the Globe at Appley Cross. It’s only a couple of miles and when you get there you’ll be glad to get inside the cool of this centuries old pub. It’s a friendly old place with a very jovial atmosphere and if you like rustic charm, well, there’s a bonus because The Globe is full of it; great thick walls, all lovely and buttery yellow in the bar, brick floors worn with use over the 500 or so years the building has stood here, and fireplaces in every room. The dining rooms are cosy so it feels a bit like you’re at a good friend’s house; mismatched old chairs, settles, pine tables, it’s lovely. Service is good too; anything you want, just ask. The food is pub fare and if you go on a Friday in the warmer months you can join in the happy vibes of pizza night.
In the summer when the sun is beaming down, it's lovely to sit in the beer garden, with beautiful Somerset countryside all around; and there’s just such a happy relaxed air, everyone chatting and enjoying themselves, just how it should be in a proper country pub. That walk across the fields is just as good in the winter, rewarded with a nice pint by the fire. Otherwise, it’s just a ten minute pootle through the lanes. Dogs welcome.
