Closed since October 2017 but was that of a popular rural Inn drawing trade from the many surrounding villages and larger conurbations of Wellington, Tiverton, Wiveliscombe and Taunton. The Globe is well known for its atmosphere and character and has a healthy mix of wet and food trade. Food is freshly prepared and locally sourced where possible with an inviting menu served lunchtimes and evenings. The Globe also offers a wide range of local real ales, good wines together with a fine collection of Somerset brandies and cremes. Sadly the Landlord recently passed away hence the reason for closure and sale. The sale of the Globe Inn presents a unique opportunity to buy a well established rural business poised to grow further under new ownership, ideally an 'owner driver' couple.


The Globe Inn is being offered on a private Free of Tie lease with an annual rent of £25,000. The lease will be fully repairing and insuring.

The incoming tenant will be required to pay the first quarters rent in advance plus a £12,500 rental deposit.

Alternatively, the premises is available freehold at an asking price of £375,000.


We understand that the property is connected to mains electricity and has its own water treatment plant. Propane gas cylinders are used for cooking.


To include furnishings and equipment as per an inventory to be supplied, but excluding the owners personal effects.
