There are some very good points about this place ad some pretty bad ones too! Four of us went for a quiet lunch, or so we thought. The music was anything but conducive to enjoying a relaxed meal. However, the staff did turn it down...More

Visited this pub but didn't stay for a drink as we couldn't find a table outside and inside it was quite dark and didn't appeal to us. They did food which seemed expensive to us.

Charming, 'proper' pub, tucked away in a quiet corner of the Market Sq. Ground floor bar / dining room with a good range of real ales and an attractive, reasonably priced menu. Didn't eat on this occasion, but will certainly be back to try it....More

The Lord Nelson is a beautiful pub tucked away in the heart of Oakham. As just one of two towns in Rutland, Oakham itself is packed with character. The Lord Nelson fits in perfectly – dating back to the 1500’s the building has been lovingly restored the KNEAD Pubs way.

With charming dining areas throughout the building, you’ll be able to find a cosy spot next to the Aga or enjoy a breath of fresh air in the secluded pub garden. The Lord Nelson is bursting with character, but its relaxed atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for a bite to eat and a chilled out pint.

A centrepiece of the Lord Nelson is the delicious food, fantastic selection of ales and range of wines and other beverages. Here at the Lord Nelson we’re passionate about serving up the perfect pint, along with a mouthwatering meal that combines traditional pub grub with a modern twist.

Our well-known, stonebaked (and scrumptious) KNEAD pizzas are always on the menu, plus a great range of lunch or dinnertime dishes. That’s what makes this pub in Oakham the ideal spot for dinner with family, a bit to eat over a meeting or simply a quick drink with friends.
