The Globe Inn Restaurant

Overlooking a pretty, leafy Georgian square in the bustling seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea, The Globe Inn is a great base for a break on the beautiful north Norfolk coast or an ideal spot for a pint of beer and some simple, home cooked food. Accredite

Had dinner here on a recent stay in Wells. The food was delicious - sea bass and tuna with tasty fishy starters too. It was a pretty quiet evening so the atmosphere was a little lacking - though we had been in for a drink on another evening when the place was heaving and very lively. Service was efficient, but if I'm being honest, not over friendly at times. Would still recommend as the food was lovely.

The Golden Fleece

A higgledy piggedly quirky building with a rustic feel .Freddie dog made welcome too .Generous portions , freshly cooked . Although we didn’t sample them the home made pizzas looked amazing .Good selection on the menu including great seafood platter , local butchers burger , gammon etc Generous portions and unhurried service .Would imagine it’s very busy in the season but plenty of outsider seating to relieve pressure on the rooms inside

Season

Here at Season we couldn’t wish for a better location, being situated just a few feet away from the stunning Harbour at Wells Next The Sea, right on the beautiful North Norfolk coast. Meaning the views from our restaurant are simply breath taking. Our pas

A cold and windy early evening treat. Visited here after a walk at Blakeney. A turn in the weather meant us dashing into this restaurant to try there menu. Pleasantly surprised, a good choice of food and bar drinks. Gluten free catered for and meal when arrived was very good. Polite obliging servers and nice atmosphere in the restaurant with softly piped music. All in all a very good meal we would highly recommend. Good views as the tide came in. I’m sure over the holiday season it would be very busy and popular.

The Crown Hotel Restaurant

Reviewed By Sorce

Visited The Crown on Saturday, the 10th of August and had a fantastic meal! The oysters were to die for – I have never had such beautiful oysters before. All of the other dishes were served beautifully and the produce was top quality. The service for a table of 10 was absolutely excellent and our waitress was friendly and efficient. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant a quiet buzz that enabled you to chat but know that you were in a popular place.Definitely worth a visit and one of the best places in this location.

The Bowling Green Inn

Reviewed By DINERMIGHT

As with so many things, there seems to be a standard formula for pubs now, paint it with some subdued tones, alter the name slightly to make it more jaunty eg 'The Sailor' becomes the 'The Jolly Sailor', print everything to look like blackboards, add a conservatory (but call it an Orangery), locally source your food, triple the price and add some staff for whom smiling is against their human rights and stuff.If that model is your comfort zone you won't like The Bowling Green. Its what you might call traditional in decor, a lot of brown furniture and the ceiling is cream with a touch of nicotine - but don't let that put you off. It doesn't smell of smoke, it doesn't smell of beer, its clean and tidy and therefore bypasses all those reasons the clone pubs mentioned above killed off the drinkers dens of the past. It looks classic but serves a fine and tasty menu at a reasonable price, has a good range of spirits and beers and has a secret weapon in the form of the staff. They're like the landladies of the past that put the life and soul into the establishment, friendly, welcoming, full of personality. Laughing at the punters terrible jokes, cheerily wiping up the spills, its like a glimpse into the ideal pub of yesterday but without the smoke, menu limited to pork scratchings (or 'Big D' nuts) and old bloke staring at you from the corner of the bar whilst muttering to himself.Well done The Bowling Green for being unpretentious and genuine, keep it up.

We always visit for evening meals, lunches and coffee when in Wells. Really lovely atmosphere, friendly, welcoming staff and a range of wonderful choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Cakes are fabulous too! My husband also stops by with the Octagon Cycling Club when they cycle from Ely to Wells for breakfast at Bang! Always more than accommodating! Thank you Bang and see you again soon.

Reviewed By Jimhough

We brought our son and grandson here for a fish supper after a long hot day out. We were surprised that it was open on Sunday. This was news to us but I am aware that it appears to have changed owners as I didn't recognise most of the staff. It seemed busy and we were informed that it would be 10 mins before we would be served. We actually got our food over 30 mins from sitting down, then one of the orders was wrong, we then had a five minute wait for our sides to arrive and another 5 mins before the drinks, again one wrong, arrived. By this time the queue was out of the door and down the street. The quality of the food was comparable to previous visits but the service wasn't. It appeared, I may be wrong, that there were only three working behind the counter plus one serving tables. My point really is that it would appear that you open on a Sunday because it is profitable, so make sure you have enough staff to serve your customers. So be prepared for a very long wait for your food if you go at a busy timeHello Jim,I understand you visit us regularly from your many reviews. The Sunday you refer to was August bank holiday weekend and yes we was VERY busy which you rightly state in your review, you was informed of a wait which you obviously accepted so why then feel the need to complain out it? The shop hasn’t changed hands simply some partners have left, the staff have largely unchanged for over 10 years, but thanks for noticing! I suppose I must apologise for your extended wait and shall take on board the need for a small army of staff next bank holiday. On the upside I’m glad you enjoyed your food.
