I was born and brought up in London and have eaten in pubs across the UK. I have never reacted to pub grub the way I did today. From the engaged and keen staff to the simple furniture and uncluttered bar the Lord Nelson Inn welcomes your in. The gentle background music and attentive but not intrusive people moving around...

This was our first visit with friends. We received a friendly and relaxed welcome. Loved the ambiance - what a proper pub should feel like. As it was Tuesday it was steak night so we two men indulged our carnivorous nature whilst the ladies chose the alternative chicken dish. £30 for two including a bottle of wine, this would be...

Twice we've eaten here, but each time the first course was so delicious we ordered a second. This meant we didn't leave till too late to go much further. We would go well out of our way to bring friends or family here. Wood stove in the middle adds to the welcome of the staff.

Been many times. Always friendly staff, great atmosphere, good food (wish the food was a bit cheaper - but you get what you pay for!). A great pub, almost always busy and for good reason.
