Of the many eateries in Wells in North Norfolk, The Globe Inn comes out a clear winner for me. The recent refurbishment has been a great success and this is a comfortable and relaxing place to dine. The menu is varied, and The Globe serves excellently prepared and presented food made with locally sourced produce. Try The Globe when you are next in Wells - it must rate as one of the best North Norfolk pubs.

I will be detailing some of the village's unusual features in a later article. The Sea Marge Hotel is an impressive building at the eastern end of the high street and is a unique place to stay and a great place to dine.
Galton Blackiston's fish and chip restaurant in Cromer a winner!

Good beer, good food and good company; the Vernon Arms at Southrepps near Cromer in Norfolk offers all three. If you are visiting North Norfolk ensure that the Vernon is on your itinerary.
