A popular Lympstone pub is under new management who promise ‘a fine selection of craft ales, cider and wine’ and an atmosphere to encourage all.

The team behind organic charcuterie company, Good Game, and barbecue smokehouse, The Pig and Pallet, have taken over the helm of The Globe Inn – a traditional pub in Lympstone, near Exmouth.

The pub will be ready to launch on Friday, July 20, and promises ‘an assured menu, a fine selection of craft ales, cider and wine, and an atmosphere to encourage muddy dog-walkers, local residents and food aficionados alike’.

Steve Williams and Pete Woodham-Kay have worked with Heavitree Brewery to spend four weeks renovating the premise.

The cellar has been refitted by St Austell Brewery, who are also providing craft beer.

The team are also working with an independent UK wine importer, with a chalk mine cellar that stores a ‘revered selection’ of European wines.

Best known for producing naturally dried game and cured meats and running popular beer and smokehouse restaurant The Pig and Pallet, in Topsham, Steve and Pete says they are keen for The Globe Inn to continue operating as a ‘community watering-hole’.

Steve said: “As our first Good Game pub, we wanted to launch the sort of place where we would go ourselves. I have been drinking in The Globe Inn for 15 years and it has always has a relaxed atmosphere, with great food and drink.

“We’ve got a terrific team on-board who are all equally passionate about warm hospitality and service.”

Diners have been told to expect a combination of ‘bold flavours, with gutsy mains alongside creative side dishes’. These include macaroni cheese, charcuterie platters, venison burgers and handmade pies.

Pete said, “We’re very much looking forward to joining the community and championing the best of the River Exe.”

The Globe Inn is open every day, serving lunch from Wednesday to Sunday and dinner from Tuesday to Saturday evenings.
