A friend and I visited Wells to do the Wells Art Trail. We'd been thinking of fish and chips for lunch but after spotting The Albatros we decided to try it. We went down (backwards) to the bar part and each chose a savoury pancake,...More

We went to the Albatross for a drink to avoid the rain. We sat downstairs as most of the tables upstairs were not under cover. There were a good selection of drinks - hot, cold, alcoholic and non. There was a great atmosphere. Staff were...More

Arrived in Wells on the sunniest of August Sundays. The world and his wives and children were there; most of them, it seemed, desperate to join the long queues at the various quayside fish& chippies. This was our fifth or sixth visit to the town,...More

A friend recommended this restaurant to us, and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was great - vegetarians are well catered for. My pancake with spinach, tomatoes, asparagus and grilled halloumi was delicious. We sat on deck and enjoyed...More

Visited for lunch and had a salami and mozzarella pancake which was very nice. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The boat setting is obviously very cool and different and the interior is charming & quirky to match. We sat inside but...More

My favourite place in Wells - the pea and ham soup is divine as are the pancakes. It's a very chilled and relaxed place and there's music as well at the weekends and Sunday afternoon. You can sit downstairs or up on deck - either...More
