We have steaks, poultry, and glorious seafood. Our specialities are fish & chips, Sundays we serve the best roast dinner on the Island. Yo must try our delicious freshly made desserts, they are fantastic. The bar serves Estrella, Turia ,Bok Damm, Magners cider, malquerida & Free Damm for the drivers. As well as a good selection of bottled beers. The bar has nearly every spirit you can imagine and the new cocktail menu that is incredible.

According to the menu for Sunday Roast on your website (copied below) not only cauliflower cheese goes with a roast dinner, broccoli cheese does as well. I feel well and truly misled and confused.

TOPSIDE OF BEEF
Befriended by crisp roast potatoes, buttered herby new potatoes, fresh seasonal vegetables, cauliflower and broccoli cheese, Yorkshire pudding and of course rich gravy.

Dear cobblersswainy,

As from your previous review on the 1st of April we stated that we cant please everyone all the time. Some people like cauliflower cheese and some don't.

Thankfully leaving poor reviews on tripadviser is not an accurate reflection on our food served at Nelsons Gastropub in this case because we served 60 plus Sunday lunches on the day you where dining, most of which are regular and repeat customers that left tips and re booked for this week.

You see we can be quite confident and say our food is very good because it is.

We have a chef that has 30 years experience working in Michelin star restaurants all over France and England. Trained by the Roux Brothers.

We hope you both find an establishment that serves cauliflower cheese and you don't feel misled and confused for much longer.

Warm regards

After being here quite a few times on our holidays over past couple of years we thought we would book for Sunday lunch very disappointed I have to say . Starter was cold , but thought main always been great and we were be of the first sittings so shouldn’t be no problem . I sent my beef back as I’d asked for well done but it was bloody , the main problem was more that it was so tough . To be fair the new waitress asked if I wanted alternative meet but I didn’t like any. The rest was also cold , Yorkshire pudding was frozen not like it used to be all fresh and piping hot and lacking cauliflower cheese !
We didn’t once get asked if we would like another drink , got charged in full even though sent meat back .
Needless to say didn’t stay for dessert a real shame as used to be amazing.

Hello Kimberley S

Sometimes we cant please every customer and obviously this is the case in this instance. When you ordered your beef well done this is exactly what you got because when it came back to the kitchen i cut a piece and ate it myself. The meat was from the end of a new joint o because you was one of the first customers in on Sunday. The ends are always well done and the centre of the joint is rare.

When i tried the meat iI found the meat to be as you asked well done with no juices running from it. Beef should be served rare or pink if you really like a tender cut of meat! Not well done. Basically you sent back to the kitchen exactly what you asked for!

We serve four vegetables roast potatoes, mash, broccoli ,carrots & peas. Cauliflower cheese does not even belong on a roast dinner. The Yorkshire puddings are certainly not frozen they were made fresh every Sunday morning.

All the time that you where eating your meals you never said that your meals where served cold. My waitress done exactly what she was trained to do. Ask if you would like a different meat. We would have gladly changed it, even though you initially got what you asked for.

You were charged the correct price for your meals because you had good food served to your table. I will not give any discounts to customers that have been served great food.


Yours sincerely

Mark Stone

We had a really enjoyable Sunday lunch there. Excellent food and great service. This restaurant is loaded with character and that includes the landlord Mark and his lovely partner Leigh. They are justifiably proud of what they have done there. It was a long afternoon there and really good fun. Thank you guys !

Visited twice during my week on Minorca in September and the food and the Company were just as good as my last visit back in May.
I still recommend a visit to anyone while on the Island.
