We've only been home a hour, having reluctantly left Wells around 3.00pm. We've been before but never noticed that The Albatross was open for food and drink. It's really cold there today but we had lovely hot drinks and waffles and pancakes accompanied by a fantastic folk duo. It's not your regular pub or restaurant, but we'll readily go back... More

Had a late lunch at the Albatros moored by Wells Quay. Sat on the deck enjoying the red tinted sky and the shimmering sea enjoying a pint of Nelsons Revenge and a ham and cheese Omelette. My Wife had a brie and bacon pancake and Jill her Aunty had a goats cheese and red onion pancake. The Albatros serves good... More

The Albatros is moored in Wells Harbour, when it hasn't been plonked on the sea wall by a storm! In all the years I and my family having been going to Wells we have omitted to go there, I can't think why, especially when the children were young they would have loved it. I went with my son, now 22.... More

On a nice day this is the best place in wells to have a beer or a G&T. the kids can do crabbing off the side and you can drink beer - fantastic. The views are the fantastic and hard to beat. However - I am surprised this comes so highly in places to eat in Wells - the pan... More

How wonderful to have a restaurant with a difference in Wells Harbour. We ordered our pancakes and then sat on the deck in late October to eat our late lunch. The food came under a cover, to ensure it kept hot and was tasty, fresh and delicious. The staff were so friendly and helpful and even took my coffee to... More

The atmosphere below decks was marred by the strong smell of paraffin or paint which I must say put us off the magnificent pancakes when they arrived.....I think if it had been warm enough for us to sit on deck the experience might have been different. As a mere customer I would suggest that a deep clean of the deck... More
