If I could give 6 stars I would, the food here is amazing whatever the occasion. We stopped by for a light lunch and was blown away as usual, each time the food is simply divine! The staff are fantastic, the rooms are lovely and decorated for Christmas. I can not recommend this place enough! Even if you only want... More

Met for a surprise birthday gathering. Had a room all to ourselves. Enjoyed pizza and desserts. Most impressed with hand made pizzas and amazing desserts. Pub bit downstairs, collection of rooms upstairs in the olde worldie building. Lovely service. (Dogs allowed, check days of the week. If you have a inhaler take it with you just in case). Would advise... More

As a regular visitor to The Lord Nelson I thought I would leave a review. Always greeted with a smile, friendly bar staff, food delicious (we love their pizzas) You are able to take dogs in the restaurant, which we have found with a small puppy quite a challenge in this area. My only recent disappointment would be they have... More

Without doubt this place produces the best pitza in Rutlnd, beer used to be of equal quality but recently I have had a couple of disappointments. A good real ale should have a head that last for the duration of the drink, a good pint will normally last about five gulps - 5 minutes. On Sunday I had a pint... More

First visit here, recommended by a friend for its excellent hand made pizzas. Presently surprised. Very busy on a Thursday night, lots of different seating areas, high and low tabled and chairs. Dog friendly but check first as I think it might only be on named days. Hence a little doggy smelly but not offensive. Will definitely recommend to friends... More
