Seafood Restaurant on the the North Norfolk Coast

Welcome to beautiful Wells – next – the – Sea

As a Husband & Wife Team  we  are now ‘living our dream’ of owning our own restaurant in Wells-next-the-Sea, the beautifully quaint and picturesque fishing town regarded as one of the UK coastline’s finest treasure.

We are a small, intimate and informal Restaurant of 10 tables with an ethos to create a friendly, relaxed and welcoming dining experience from our young and enthusiastic team, centred around beautifully prepared local and seasonal seafood dishes, with dishes developed from travels afar and each chef’s passion for different cuisines we aim to offer a fusion of dishes to amaze your taste buds, and seafood platters being a popular constant. Although we will be offering a smattering of ‘landlubber’ dishes from award winning butcher Arthur Howell on our monthly menu to make sure every taste is catered for.

For our talented Kitchen brigade using local is a top priority and we are proud to supply Crabs and Mussels from Andy Frary on his Andorra Star 2 boat, Lobsters from Billy Ward on his Predator Boat and Oysters from Richard Loose from Brancaster,and all other Seafood is supplied by Soletrader who sources the best suppliers up and down the coasts of England.

Nothing better than getting our deliveries so fresh with wellies still dripping with the sea…
