The Albatros would be it!! What a wonderful, friendly, quirky place to stay! We only wish we could have stayed longer. From the navigation maps, original nautical features to the range of board games available, every elelment of The Albatros added to the whole experience and atmosphere. Even after we arrived home we were prompted to look up a history... More

Been to this resteraunt a number of times over the years, and it has come to be a bit of a tradition! The setting is relaxing and combined with good food, real ale, and friendly staff creates a fantastic unique experience! Will definitely return ☺

As always a great visit - food and beer excellent in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. When in Wells I thoroughly recommend a visit to The Albatros.

Nice unusual place to meet with friends over a drink. Beware of the plank when exiting if the tide has come in!

This was great for something a bit different. There is a good atmosphere in the little cabin bar and seats on deck with lovely harbour views. A number of real ales available. The pancakes are a generous size and very yummy and good value for money. My only, very slight, criticism was that they were busy and evidently understaffed and... More

Came here 3 weeks ago and had a great time.. pleasant staff, some yummy pancakes and games down inside the boat. Came back today and had a totally different experience... There is one staff member who is incredibly rude. An older man, slim man with grey hair who be quite frank has the same customer service skills as a piece... More

We arrived having cycled from Hunstanton that day and were shown the captains cabin. Fantastic experience, we were the only ones on the barge and slept really well. We have enjoyed the barge before for food and certainly always found the crew to be helpful. Many thanks to the owner for his interest in his customers.
