We recently attended a 40th birthday party. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to make sure everyone was well taken care of. The food and service was great. A wonderful place for a short break.

We stopped at the Lord Nelson with our one-year-old daughter on our long drive heading north for Christmas. We pulled off the motorway when she woke up and were lucky enough to stumble across this fantastic pub. There was a lovely atmosphere despite it being four o'clock on a Thursday afternoon, the beer was well kept, the staff were friendly,...
