Globe, London

The Globe is a Nicholson’s pub located on the corner of London Wall and Moorgate and just a short walk from Moorgate station.

Brief History

Originally two separate pubs – the Globe and the John Keats – the two have now merged and the John Keats is now an extension of the Globe called ‘Keats at the Globe’. According to the Nicholson’s website, there were 31 pubs called the Globe in 19th Century and as the emblem of Portugal the globe advertised pubs selling Portuguese wine.

Dead Pubs has traced records of the Globe dating back to 1851 when Moorgate was then called Finsbury Pavement. The section of Finsbury Pavement that the pub was located on was subsequently renamed Moorgate.

Interior and Exterior

The interior of the pub is quite spacious L-shaped room decorated throughout with plenty of wood and flock wallpaper. The area around the large curved bar appeared to be intentionally kept clear which may be a sign of it being a popular pub with city workers at lunchtime and in the evenings. The exterior features a large paved area and a green which is no doubt popular with city drinkers on warmer days.

I didn’t get to visit Keat’s at the Globe when I visited but you can see photos of both the interior and exterior on City Pubs.

The Beer

As with all Nicholson’s pubs you can expect a good selection of beers from breweries around the UK. Six hand pumps are available with Fullers London Pride and Sharps Doom Bar the permanent beers. Guests can features Jennings, Acorn, Lancaster and Moor. Prices are what you’d expect from any other city pub.
