Just love this vessel that has been converted to a pub/restaurant. So authentic and real here. We enjoyed wonderful views sitting on the top deck in the sun. The pancakes are fantastic!

While on holiday in Wells we decided to lunch at The Albatros. The place was very busy and we sat on the upper deck. The staff were very friendly but seemed a little unorganised. Just as our food was brought it started to rain at...More
