Just wanted to say a big Thanks to Ed and all the staff for a great family lunch this weekend. Even though the pub was very busy with bookings and a function in the marquee our food and service was top notch as always. A special mention for the children's meals that my nieces had, they were fantastic!

After a final decision of going to the Nelson, one we have not been to in a while, we were excited to try it again. On arrival we entered into the restaurant area. After waiting for nearly... More

Firstly I'd like to pass on huge compliments to the chef - your food was fantastic! We visited your restaurant recently as a family of four, we have been before but not for a very long time. We shall certainly be back in the not too distant future. We started off with two sharing plates - the mixed tapas and... More

We normally have beers and G&T's but went to the wine list for a good Italian, or French or Spanish white. Waste of time. I have ordered wine in possibly a thousand restaurants, I am very old, but this was the worse white wine selection I can ever remember, shocking choice. Either their wine wholesaler choose the selection or the... More

We chose The Nelson from TripAdvisor as it was half way between us and our friends. It's in a beautiful location and the pub itself is lovely. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. It was also very busy - a great sign! Great value kids roast dinners and my mushroom pie roast was gorgeous. Would recommend... More
