Overview

Built as a coaching inn in the 18th-century, The Globe became a theatre before being re-born as a thriving inn offering accommodation. Recently revamped, the Grade II listed stone and brick building has been painted in an attractive and eye-catching grey hue; yet step inside and you'll find a sleek, cool and contemporary interior which cleverly blends period features with modern furnishings. Expect leather bench seating, padded feature walls, herringbone wooden tables and a cutting-edge wood-burning stove in the bar.

The sophisticated restaurant boasts dark upholstered and studded banquettes with modern tables, luxurious red leather chairs and rich deep green wall paint. The open-to-view kitchen adds a touch of theatre and the whole places exudes a boutique, Scandinavian feel - simple, stylish, and elegant. The stone terrace to the rear has plenty of chairs and tables for alfresco relaxing.

Things to do

Warwick is surrounded by some of the region's loveliest half-day walks and more adventurous long-distance trails. You can walk by the Avon, follow in Shakespeare's footsteps or take to the glorious Cotswolds. For something a bit more unusual, try the Stratford Town Ghost Walk, visiting local buildings supposedly inhabited by ghosts and spirits

There's plenty of history in this area, with Warwick Castle being a real highlight and one of Britain's popular visitor attractions. Dating back to the 14th century, with the gardens designed by Capability Brown in the 18th century. With so much to see and discover, it's best to set aside a day to explore both inside and out. Or, head to the magnificent Coughton Court, a Tudor country house near Alcester with plenty of fascinating history. There are also refreshment facilities, a walled garden and a riverside walk.

If you enjoy spending time along the river, hiring a canal boat for the day with Wootton Wawen Day Boat Hire is the ideal way to see and enjoy the Heart of England's intricate network of picturesque inland waterways.
