Visited Nelsons last Friday lunchtime with our son and young grandson. We ate outside on the patio as it was cloudy but warm. The restaurant is basic but spotlessly clean both inside and out. It was quite busy when we arrived which meant we had to wait awhile for our meal, but we were in no rush and so this... More

Ate here twice. First visit two of us had piri piri chicken (very tasty but not much meat) and one of us had salami pizza which was very good. Second time, one had pork chops (under cooked), one had chicken kiev (very good) and one had fish & chips (excellent). Desserts OK, but my tiramisu was still a bit frozen... More

Lovely restaurant. Excellent food. Brilliant price. Nelson is the most friendly amiable man you could meet. All his staff are extremely helpful and after visiting his restaurant for the last five years we have got to know them well. You must try the tropical salads with your meals.

Thank Lesley R
