The Globe Inn

Nor­folk

Olive - - EAT -

On a Ge­or­gian square in Wells-next-the-Sea, The Globe Inn is as pop­u­lar with walk­ers as it is the bird­watch­ers who flock to this time­less North Nor­folk coastal town. The pub has strong links with the town’s farm­ers and fish­er­men – ex­pect to eat lob­ster and crab de­liv­ered straight from the quay, and beef that has grazed on the salt marshes on the fringes of cen­turies-old es­tates.

With such fine food on offer, a good walk is re­quired to burn off the calo­ries, and the pub is the start­ing point for a num­ber of coastal routes. One of the best is the 8.5-mile walk to Morston Quay, which passes fish­er­men’s

huts and creeks with lots of bird-spot­ting po­ten­tial, although the cir­cu­lar walk via the deer park on the his­toric Holkham Es­tate and the pine woods at West Sands, is also a win­ner. The Globe Inn’s An­to­nia Bournes says: “It is such a fab­u­lous area for walks but we are also very lucky to have the Coasthop­per bus ser­vice just up the road, which means our res­i­dents can leave their car and walk as far as they want, catch the bus back to Wells-next-the-Sea, then the next day they can set off on the bus to where they left off and carry on walk­ing.” the­globeat­wells.co.uk
