First time visit for a family birthday. We had to pre order our food in advance as we were a party of 14 but still had to wait far too long for our starters to arrive. My son had pizza for his main and it was like a frisbee, he struggled to chew it. I really wish I'd complained at... More

There were 8 of us dining and all had fabulous meals served by friendly staff. It's not the cheapest pub around but the food cannot be beaten and is well worth the money. We did have to wait for our food for about 45 minutes but didn't mind because all the food arrived piping hot and was freshly cooked. We... More

The Nelson is a great pub. Fantastic for families due to outdoor play area, friends nights out or special occasions. The restaurant is really well laid out with top notch food and service. Bar area has a great atmosphere. By far my first choice venue for miles around for a meal out or just a drink.

We arrived on a dark wet and cold night looking for the disabled spaces in the car park which was poorly lit. Could not find any and unable to drop my disabled wife off near the door as someone had parked their car across the entrance road. We mentioned the car to the waitress who seemed to know whose it...

Just wanted to say a few words on how amazing this place is. I had a surprise birthday party here the weekend and it was outstanding. The food was superb. Ed made sure everything ran smoothly all night and gave us a fantastic service. Anyone wanting a great country pub with beautiful Food, give the Nelson a try. Thank you... More
