The Globe Inn

photo
NAME GLOBE INN
ALTERNATIVE NAMES GLOBE HOTEL
ADDRESS 23 ALBION STREET
The Globe has always been a popular pub name. It was at one time associated with Portugal and indicated that a tavern sold Portugese wines. It is now associated with Shakespeare because of the Globe Theatre where his plays were performed during his lifetime. It is an easy symbol to represent and to recognise.

To 1920 this was a home-brew pub. Note the long sequence of female brewsters. No doubt Lizzie Causer and Lizzie Garbutt are the same person.

It closed on 16.5.1963.
