Description: Overlooking a pretty, leafy Georgian square in the bustling seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea, The Globe Inn is a great base for a break on the beautiful north Norfolk coast or an ideal spot for a pint of beer and some simple, home cooked food. Accredited with 4 stars and a silver award by Enjoy England, the Inn offers exceptional quality in all areas. There is a sun-filled courtyard for alfresco eating and dining and a perfect spot to read your morning paper whilst having breakfast. With loads of fabulous local producers on the doorstep, typical dishes will include: Wells' seafood risotto, local pigeon breasts, Norfolk sirloin steak and Mrs Temple's wonderful cheeses. The town offers a central base for the nearby beautiful Holkham Beach with more than four miles of golden sand, and the world-class bird watching sites of the Holkham Nature Reserve, Cley-next-Sea and Titchwell.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Only called in for a lunchtime drink but the menu and food looked good. We plan to try the food when we are next in Wells.

“Speculative dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We popped up to Wells for a change, walked past the globe and liked the look of the place. Hadn't booked, but after a short wait at the bar a table came free. The standard and quality of the food was exceptional, belly pork for me and fish and chips for my wife. Even tempted to a dessert. Nice warm atmosphere, friendly service. Looking forward to popping back and trying their lazy Sunday lunch. We will return.

“Lacks basic service standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Visited Saturday lunchtime on the back of a review in a local brochure.On arrival the bar was busy so we were shown to a table in the 'restaurant' which at the time had three other customers in it at 1pm.

We were given the restaurant menus but only fancied a quick sandwich as we had our young daughter with us, on asking for the sandwich menu we were told that we don't normally serve sandwiches in the restaurant!!! The only other customers in the restaurant were also eating sandwiches!!!
The attitude of the staff , or lack off, lacked basic service standards and couldn't even crack a smile.
I would say that if your bar is full then offer food in the empty 'restaurant'

“best food in Wells”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

recently refurbished (though decor still a bit subfusc), and producing the best food in Wells (its rival, the Crown, is in a poor phase). Raw materials from Holkham Estate, cooking assured, modern british style.
