It is with the heaviest heart that as of 3pm today – Thursday 19th March – The Globe will be closed for the foreseeable future I have made this decision as I have the most AMAZING, SUPPORTIVE & LOYAL customers. You have bought me to tears everyday this week.
However I now feel I have a moral obligation to my team, their families and yourselves. Guys…..sadly we now need to practice social distancing to slow down the spread of this virus.
I can hear you all shouting…... ‘one more drink…. Close NG party??’ !!!! I would love nothing more than to do this But if every pub/bar/restaurant and hotel in The UK does this, our already overstretched NHS and police force will inevitably end up spending their time caring or dealing with alcohol related problems. They currently need to be solely focused on caring for those suffering from this virus.
We are going to quietly close, gather our thoughts and begin the planning of our re-opening PARTY Like many, I don’t quite know how this is going to pan out, 20 years of my life have been dedicated to this industry, its in my blood. We will NOT go down without a fight. I have every intention of re-opening The Globe and bouncing back from this. It is going to take time, patience and understanding on many, many levels potentially for several years to come but ultimately we need you as much as you need us so we will do everything within our power to protect what we have created.
All I ask is that you ALL, our loyal customers, friends,
suppliers and aquaintences
STAY SAFE & HEALTHY. LOOK AFTER EACHOTHER AND BE KIND.
We are all in this together and fighting our own battles.
See you in the other side for the biggest hugs.
Karen & The Team @ The Globe
Please please message if you need anything in the coming days/weeks or months….. We are here to help and will do anything to help where we can.

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.
