Happily, no! The Globe reopened last week after a facelift, some TLC and generally sensitive upgrading. It is now part of the same local group that run the Marquis Wellington - and you can see the top notch review I gave them incidentally just the other week on this blog. They are still an Everards pub, another great local institution. All the usual Everard Ales are available - my favourites being the Sunchaser and Beacon - although The Boy likes a pint of Original. They also have a selection of guest ales and ciders. When we visited, The Boy sampled the Everards Au which he gave a good thumbs up to as very refreshing on a summers day. As ever, the beer seems well looked after.

It's great to have the Globe open again. It was lovely to see so many people coming in, just like we had, having a little nosy round and exclaiming on the changes before settling down for a quiet pint. I truly hope it is a success and that the Globe recaptures the great spirit I remember from when we first moved here. I've had birthday celebrations here, and I even came here in my wedding dress, in between the ceremony and the reception. I hope many more people get the chance to make fun memories here like we have. Ten out of Ten Extreme Points, if only for the nostalgia!
