What a roller coaster of a year we have had!
It is with ANOTHER heavy heart that I am announcing that The Globe will not be re-opening this time round….. YET.
We did all that was asked of us in Tier 1, we embraced adapting our business to ensure it was viable and that our discerning customers were still able to enjoy a PUB experience.
Tier 2 is a different ball game.
The past 36 hrs have been spent deliberating and number crunching. The conclusion is always the same though. It is not financially viable at this point in time to re-open.
The Globe has gone into preservation mode! The pub, the bank balance and the team are being preserved until the time is right.
By doing this we will be able to come back and come back stronger, to be able to survive January & February and be flying by the spring.
Like the government, this will be reviewed on the 16th December. We are keeping everything crossed for Tier 1 or a lottery win. Sarah and I haven’t spent the last 2 days putting the Christmas Decorations up for nothing!
We really hope that we are able to welcome you all back to The Globe this side of Christmas.
In the meantime, stay safe and save some pennies ready for our re-opening 😉

The Globe - History
15th-century pub with a garden and terrace on the banks of a small lake, plus Modern British menu. One landlord of the Globe who held a special place in the towns cricket history was Thomas Taylor. He was one of the Hambledon Club team who, on l8th June 1777, beat All England by an innings and 168 runs (the other Alresford man in the team was Richard Veck). Among the entertainments at the Globe was the Melon Feast; the fruit being judged for perfection before becoming the principal dish.
On the 26 September 1943 the B17 Flying Fortress “Lady Luck”, carrying a full bomb load, got into difficulties over Alresford. Captain Robert Cogswell ordered his nine crewmen to bail out remaining on board the aircraft himself in an attempt to steer the bomber away from the town. The plane crashed just east of Alresford Pond Captain Cogswell having jumped to safety himself shortly before it crashed.
The plaque in Soke Gardens honours Captain Cogswell of the 303 Bomb Group, US 8th Air Force and his conduct in saving Alresford from a potential disaster.
Soke Gardens can be found down the lane to the right of the Globe on the Lake pub at the bottom of Broad Street.
