Globe Inn, The

The Buttlands Wells-next-the-Sea Wells Next The Sea, Norfolk NR23 1EU

Overlooking a pretty 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 local beer and some delicious, home cooked food.


We are open all day serving a selection of real ales from local brewers. Food is served from 12 noon until 2.30pm and 6.00pm until 8.30pm, Monday to Sunday. As well as our menu and daily changing specials we always offer a Sunday roast. We also have an interesting, wine list.


Come and enjoy our great menu, lots of classics and lots of locally sourced food - mussels from the Quay at Wells, Vension from up the road, etc. Do remember to look at our specials which change regularly and feature fresh, local food, taking advantage of the abundance of produce available from both farm and sea.

In early summer, enjoy the tenderest asparagus and sweet early strawberries, the first sea bass of the year, spring lamb and vegetables, then tasty crab, samphire and the freshest mackerel straight out of the sea. While in autumn, offer sea trout and local mussels. As as autumn turns to winter, take comfort in warming winter food of wild game from Holkham Estate, roasted winter root vegetables and jugs of richly stocked gravy.

The Globe's kitchen also caters for little appetites, making homemade dishes such as little fish and chips, rare breed sausages, mash and onion gravy and pasta. Any special dietary requirements can be accommodated given some notice. Our menu has influences of both British and French cuisine. As well as a 40-seater restaurant, we have a small dining room available for private parties up to 16.

Food is served from 12noon until 2.30pm and 6.00pm until 9.00pm, Monday to Sunday.


The Inn has seven, light and airy rooms, including five double en-suite rooms and two twin en-suite rooms, all with oak flooring. The rooms are simple, modern and beautifully decorated, with flat screen televisions. Three of our rooms are dog friendly. Rooms are available from £110 per night for an en-suite room and a hearty full English breakfast, eggs benedict, or Cley smoked haddock with a poached egg or simple but scrumptious homemade muesli

At weekends we operate a two night booking policy over a Friday and Saturday night.

The bars and dining room have wheelchair access, as does the loo.
Dogs are welcome in the bar area.

Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk Coast.

There is a sun-filled courtyard in which to enjoy your drinks, restful lunch or evening meal and as a resident you can enjoy our beautiful private roof terrace which is the perfect spot to read your morning paper. It is a short walk down Staithe Street to the quay and you’ll see fishermen setting out on a good tide for inshore crab, whelk and the passing sea trout and bass.

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.

I went here with my mother after a dog walk as we fancied something light to eat before heading off home and The Globe did just that. We had the pitta breads and hummous and a plate of chips and it was quick to arrive, lovely and hot and just right to tide us over til dinner. We have been back since for a 'proper' lunch and was equally please with the service, the quality of the food and the cost. It's great value and really delicious. I will be going back and would heartily recommend it to others.
