Pancakes and Ale

Even if your not staying on this charming little boat, no trip to Wells is complete without a stop at the Albatros. Dutch pancakes, filled omelettes and local ales. Top Class

This welcoming, hearty ship serves some of the best pancakes ever! They have such a variety of pancake flavours to choose from including sweet and savoury. I especially love going here at Christmas after a long walk then a glass of mulled wine and a pancake!
