Harbour Meal

Dutch Pancakes and local ale make a meal with a difference. On deck in the sun or below deck out of the wind friendly atmosphere with entertainment during the season.

And great food. Excellent pancakes! We'll be back. There was a great family feel with lots of good banter between the various groups there. The Captain and his Lady looked after us with great enthusiasm. Do go if you can.

We only had a brief visit to the Albatros. We didn't eat although the food looked good. The boat was lovely and it's a must even if only quickly as it's a wonderful thing to be sitting on the deck with a pint in the sun (if there is sun). The beer was good. A lot of the tables were... More

My husband and I decided to try The Albatros for dinner on the last night of our holiday in Wells Next The Sea. Oh how we wish we'd visited it sooner! The staff are friendly and up-beat and the pancakes were the best I've ever had. There was a huge choice of savoury and sweet pancakes, We had mushroom, garlic... More

We found this place on a floating Dutch barge on the quay side at Wells. Really enjoyed the ambiance here. The food was very good. We had pancakes and Dutch Apple cake. Good surroundings, nice people and good beer too. Access to below decks bar/ eating area could be tricky but there are tables laid on deck.

This is a trip straight back into hippy 1960s Holland - a restaurant on an old Dutch boat in Wells harbour. It is Dutch owned and makes authentic Dutch pancakes and other Dutch specialities such as Erwtensoup - not quite like my Dutch mum used to make it, but still very tasty. The 'crew' is very friendly & accommodating, allowing... More
