On a recent visit to Norfolk, we came across the Albatros anchored in the harbour at Wells next the Sea. What a delight. The specialty was 'Dutch Pancakes'. Delicious!!!! I would certainly go again when next in the area. There are lots of tasty fillings to try!

Today we will have lunch somewhere we have never been before, said my husband. We went to Wells and walked down the High Street and along the Quay. That is it - The Albatros! We went aboard and chose a table on the deck, there were also tables downstairs. A polite young lady came to us almost immediately and brought... More

We have visited Wells several times in recent years and always fancied a visit to The Albatros, but with my wife confined to a wheelchair it had seemed impossible. This time we were admiring their menu from the quayside when a young lady came off the boat and offered to set up a table for us on the quayside and... More

If you are looking for somewhere quirky to eat then The Albatross is the place. Its a boat full of charm and character. The menu is a selection of sweet and savoury pancakes so if your not a pancake fan then eating here isn't for you. If you love pancakes however, then the choice is amazing. The staff are super...

I can imagine other places trying to imitate The Albatros. Well, don't go for an imitation, go for the real thing. The staff were lovely. The service was great. Teenage son, little dog and me for a late lunch on a rainy Monday. I phoned up beforehand to check dogs were allowed and they were. Ours is a small very... More

We live locally to Wells and my 7 year old daughter decided she wanted to go crabbing and then have pancakes on the pancake boat to celebrate her birthday. We arrived on the boat and obeyed the sign that said 'please wait to be seated', whilst another family pushed in front of us, we waited there 10 mins until a... More

Full of character, charm and atmosphere. We had some tasty savoury pancakes and a few drinks. The service was excellent and the price reasonable. The type of place where you will strike up conversation with the table next door. Great place, lovely people.

Drinks on a sunny eve on a boat - could not be better !. This is a great place to relax. Great real ales and pancakes. Stairs to the bar area are scary steep - you would not want too many beers !
