Earliest 1753

5 Bulwark Street

Commercial Quay



This was closed for misconduct in 1849 but James Barker managed to reopen the following year. I don't know for how long although have reference to this in 1859. Another "Globe" was active on Commercial Quay in 1859-60 however. Could this be one and the same?

It has been suggested that the pub later became the "Blue Post."

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports Advertiser, 17 February, 1849.

The landlord of the "Globe," in Bulwark Street, was fined 5, and 11s. costs, for keeping a disorderly house, of which a complaint was made on the Monday previous.


From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports Advertiser, 17 February, 1849.

George C. B. Rolfe, hawker, charged with stealing a tobacco box at the "Globe" Inn. From the evidence, it appeared that the box had been handed to Rolfe, who had requested a pipe of tobacco; that it them passed through the hands of several present in the room, and not being returned to the owner, the present charge was made against Rolfe, as the party to whom the box had been delivered by the prosecutor. - The Bench considered that no felony had been intended, and, after some advisory remarks, discharged the prisoner.


From the Dover Express and East Kent Intelligencer, 21 May, 1859.


Catherine Macfarlane was summoned for an assault upon Sarah Pope, the landlady of the "Globe" public-house, Commercial Quay.

The complainant said - I am the landlady of the "Globe." On Tuesday evening, about half-past ten o'clock, the defendant came into my house and called for a glass of beer. I told her that my beer was "out," which was the case. She then began to abuse me, and struck me across the arm with her hand. She also threatened to "do" for me. The defendant had insulted me on the preceding evening. She was on the step at the time, and I closed the door against her.

Jane Parrot, a lodger at the "Globe," said she witnessed the assault on the complainant by defendant on Tuesday night.

The defendant denies touching the complainant with any intention of assaulting her, and the Bench ultimately dismissed the case as too trivial for their interference.
