Only called in for a drink this visit. But we will be back. Friendly staff, menu looked interesting with a great choice but not too much to make your choosing exhausting. A visit to the loos a real must, they must be the most spectacular in Wells!

Thankyou for your great review....we're very proud of our new look & pleased you liked it too. Our Loo's are a must-see & I do hope when next in Wells you pop in for lunch/dinner & enjoy our seasonal menu offerings (many sourced direct from the Norfolk coast & surrounds!) Look forward to seeing you again soon More

Great place! Clean and beautiful rooms, excellent service, nice food and great outdoor tables to have a drink in the sun, simply perfect! The only tiny thing that we noticed is that there was a card in our room to give some feedback but no pen so we couldn't write how much we liked the place. That was our only... More

Great hotel and restaurant in a good location and with a top class team looking after you! Breakfast (Eggs Benedict in my case) was prepared to order (too may hotels nowadays rely on the breakfast bar approach to hot food) and is served in a relaxing environment. Lunch (Venison burger) was again really good and served in the courtyard in... More

Many thanks for your review. Being in the midst of summer school holidays, children/families & young people are inevitable in Wells, the Globe & North Norfolk. You're right, when the Buttlands is busy, we will always be busy! So reservations are the best way to ensure a table in the Restaurant. Im so pleased to hear you enjoyed your experience... More

My wife and I stayed during the early May Bank Holiday, coinciding with our wedding anniversary. The Globe is a wonderful place for a short break: great rooms; good food and really nice staff. We were especially touched by the anniversary card from the hotel; left in our room. So thoughtful. We will be back!

The Globe Inn is a pub that thinks it is an hotel, with hotel prices to match. Upon our arrival, I asked about reservations in the restaurant, to be told they were fully booked for the two nights of our stay. We could however go for a bar meal, but would need to get there early, as service was on... More

TheGlobeatWells, Manager at The Globe Inn, responded to this review

Well, in actual fact, we are a hotel/inn not a pub. On reservation of your room together with your confirmation letter you will have been offered a table in the restaurant for both nights of your stay and we always recommend this option. You chose not to reserve a table and at the weekends we are understandably very busy in... More

I am a 'local' and have enjoyed a nice glass of wine and good food at The Globe over the past few years.We watched the refurb taking place and it works in the new bar area......how ever the staffing situation is poor!

A disappointing review from a 'local' of whom most are excited/positive about their new 'Globe'...I write my response to give clarity on your points but argue a differing point of view I'm afraid. With regard to your 'no orders before 6pm'; our weekend service hours are 12-3 (lunch) 3-5.30pm (afternoon) 6.30-9pm (dinner - orders taken from approx. 6pm), so the... More

First trip since being refurbished , and all looks brilliant. Welcomed by very friendly staff we ordered the seafood platter for two which was to die for! .... Very impressed with the rest room and loved the touch of a glass panel to view the cellar pumps . Will be back soon .

Thanks for your lovely review. Our seafood platter is proving particularly popular; featuring Wells crab from our very own Quay & plenty of delicious fresh fish, I'm pleased to hear it was a hit again. Glad you enjoyed our new loos/cellar...we love them too! Proud of our 'new look' Globe, Look forward to seeing you again soon. More

We enjoyed dinner twice during our week in Wells, and each was superb. The first time, we made the mistake of having a starter, before we tackled the shared fish platter, which was brilliant but which we struggled to finish, being reluctant to leave a single hot prawn. The second time we had the venison burger and the belly of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Accredited with 4 stars and a silver award by Enjoy England, the Inn offers exceptional quality in all areas. We are also proud to have been approved by the Visit England Cyclists Welcome, Walkers Welcome and Welcome Pets schemes. There is a sun-filled courtyard for alfresco eating and dining and a perfect spot to read your morning paper whilst having breakfast. Take a short walk down Staithe Street to the quay and you’ll see fishermen setting out on a good tide for inshore crab, whelk and the passing sea trout and bass. The town offers a central base for the nearby beautiful Holkham Beach with more than four miles of golden sand, and the world-class bird watching sites of the Holkham Nature Reserve, Cley-next-Sea and Titchwell. ... more   less
