Superb that you enjoyed our delicious wood-fired stone-baked pizzas so much, they really are excellent! You came during an exceptionally busy period and whilst we try to minimise queueing, sometimes even with 5 staff on the bar, the influx is so great that people have...More

A very unassuming place, you may not think from the outside and the bar that the food would be as good as it is. I recommend booking a table in advance so you can sit in the restaurant area rather than the pub side. The...More

Great to read your lovely review about children's food. We cook everything from scratch as you would at home, children are important and that's why we try to give them a nice, homely, homecooked menu to choose from.

Great place for a drink and people watch as they go to the carnival. No glasses thou all plastic when it’s carnival time so you can go onto the butlands.

Glad you enjoyed the carnival and The Globe. Thanks for your understanding about the plastic glasses, there are so many children on the Buttlands and one broken glass would be a disaster.

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.
