Family pub and restaurant based in Holme, Peterborough

The Admiral Wells is an independent, family run free house located in the pretty village of Holme in the Cambridgeshire Fens.

Different nights at the Admiral Wells include:

  • Fun quiz night - every Tuesday at 8.30 pm



We are conveniently situated 5 minutes from the A1 and about halfway between the busy city of Peterborough and the historic town of Huntingdon. We are an ideal stop for commuters yet the area could not be more rural. Sitting right next to Holme Fen Reserve and the famous Holme Fen Posts (taken from Crystal Palace and marking the lowest point in Britain) it is a real haven for nature lovers.


In recent years the pub has undergone extensive refurbishment, with charming bar areas complete with cosy log fires and a light and airy conservatory in the restaurant overlooking the beautiful gardens and play area. Our large beer garden is an attraction in fair weather, particularly with families.


Well known for our excellent home-cooked food and range of real ales, we have customers travelling from all over the area to enjoy a meal or a drink at our pub. We look forward to welcoming you too.
