At the top of Staithe Street, in the heart of Wells, lies the Buttlands, a quiet, leafy green lined with lime trees and elegant Georgian and Victorian houses. The name originates from the days it was used for archery practice. It is home to The Crown Hotel, a former coaching inn from the 16th century, and the Globe Inn. Enjoy a casual meal in the bar or more formal dining in the restaurant at the Crown, or a pint of local beer and some honest, home cooked food at the Globe. Various events are held in the square during the year, such as Morris Dancing in May.
