The Globe, Newbury
Muddy says: A super dog-friendly, hip hangout that boasts a cool culinary collaboration with a Muddy Award winner. Who’s up for yappy hour?
There are dog friendly pubs and then there’s The Globe – a hip hangout for you and your four-legged drinking partners. Owners Colin and Katie and pub dog Dave, took over The Globe (formerly known as The Snooty Fox), and transformed this tired old boozer into a trendy tavern that wouldn’t be out of place in the Big Smoke .
The original name was revived, along with many of the original features, with graffiti wall art, funky fixtures and a wall of 80s snacks, giving it that urban vibe.
More than just another pub, Colin and Katie have created a community with their limitless charm, plus live music events, the now legendary quiz nights (watch out for the practical round), gin tastings, foodie celebrations and more. If it brings people (and dogs) together, it’ll happen here.
Rather unusually The Globe has collaborated with Colline’s Kitchen – this year’s Muddy Award-winning Best Newcomer. Colline runs cafes at Living Saucha Yoga Studio, but more importantly she’s now making all the food for The Globe, too. This is not your standard three courses. More of a grazing platter of all-time snack faves like sausage rolls, wings, bread and pickles. Pop along, take your dog and don’t be offended if you furry BFF gets a warmer welcome.
