Good place to meet people or to grab a pint on your way to or from somewhere but hardly a destination pub. I have to say the range of beers is excellent and the service good. The decor is typical Nicholson's so Victorian in character. It does lack a little personality but I am happy to return and wish this pub well. Of particular note is the Pilsner tanks installed selling unfiltered Pilsner Urquell although at £5 a pint you might just have a quick one.

Agree fully with the review below. Not a place to go for character or a quiet pint. But a good atmospher, and a suprisingly good range of ales including at least two stouts when I was in over Christmas. Certainly a good bet if in the area.

There are times when what I want is a local pub, with no TVs, no fruit machines and quirky locals (and, of course, good beer). Other times, I simply want a pub that is easy to find (crucial if you're meeting friends and want to describe the location/pub), has a decent selection of beer and is not a dive. The Globe falls into the latter category, but is not an awful pub for all that.

The Globe is part of the Nicholson's chain - one step (sometimes) above a Weatherspoons. However, like the Weatherspoon's chain, there is a good, ever changing selection of beers. The staff seem competent though not overly friendly (not unfriendly, however). The prices are dearer than a Weatherspoon's (around 3.35 for a pint of White Horse), but cheaper than many pubs in the City.

Were I looking for a charming pub to have a quiet drink, this may not be my first choice. For a quick pint or two with a friend or two, you could do worse.

Surprised by some of the criticism on here. The Globe is not my favourite place by any means but it's a solid enough Nicholsons pub with a good range of ales, and makes a decent enough place to meet given that it's right next to Moorgate tube. Layout is a bit quirky as others have said, basically two pubs that have been knocked together at some stage. The 'Keats' side has a bit more character and you are more likely to find a seat... there is also a third bar in the dining area upstairs. This is usually staffed and rarely gets busy, in fact if you time it right you can get sometimes get a room and a barperson all to yourself up there.

Pride, Harvest Pale, Cumberland Ale, Centurions Ghost, Black Sheep Bitter, Landlord, Doom Bar, Adnams Bitter, Old Rosie. Typical Nicholsons set up. Dark in the Keats section, lighter in the larger bar on the corner. Need to check both bars for ales. Harvest Pale tasted great, I think Nicholsons are upping their game so bad reviews maybe can be reconsidered.
