We hadn't been to the Nelson in ages, but what a pleasant surprise.We were shown to our table by a very friendly waitress. We placed our order for drinks & food. My husband (who is a retired butcher) ordered the rump steak, I had the sirloin and our son had the mixed grill. The meals were excellent, the steaks were cooked to perfection, they just melted. They had a good selection of sweets. Overall we praise the Nelson for its service and excellent food. Keep up the good work.

Took a friend for a quiet lunch and found it to be a lovely pub with a good menu. Food was very good and staff very friendly.

Decided to visit The Nelson for a Christmas meal which had been pre booked with some of our friends on Sunday 17th Dec.

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly waitress who seated us all and took our drink orders. When she returned she gave us the Christmas menus but forgot the children’s menus which she then said she would get, but vanished. We waited for her to return but then she reappeared occupied with another busy table.

Eventually i had to chase another waitress down to get the children’s menus we requested so we could place our order. Again after browsing the menu we felt abandoned as we had to grab the attention of yet another waitress to order our starters.

To cut a long story short, In my opinion the food was excellent but we were let down by the service provided which was average to poor.

We spent the entire meal chasing different waitresses for basic requirements that would be standard procedure in any other restaurant.

I do not expect in any restaurant to be constantly chasing staff asking basic questions like can we order more drinks, can you clear the table, can we have the desert menu? Etc

I would return here again because the food was very good. However, i think this place could be a lot better if the waitresses focused on their customers needs a little more and If they also concentrated on dealing with their own tables instead of covering the entire restaurant.

This is why i believe we ended up chasing them though out our entire meal which ruined what potentially could have been an excellent review.

Not our first, and certainly will not be our last visit to this fabulous pub, we were a party of 25 and had nothing but excellent service from the initial point of booking, Ed and his team are amazing, nothing is too much trouble, and the staff are extremely efficient and friendly. Food was once again AMAZING, everyone commented on the standard and the portion sizes, and the atmosphere in the pub was fantastic.
Thank you all for making it a very special day for me.
