A great atmosphere and the food was very good. Whitebait a must. Was in Burnham Market for a weekend break and after an evening at The Lord Nelson one of the locals said hello in the morning whilst I was shopping in Burnham Market. Really friendly and full of locals.

If you are going to see Nelson's birthplace or are in the area them this tiny pub is really worth a visit. There are not many places like this left which provide a portal to a bygone age. One can really feel the history. The food is not bad either. Been there a few times recently.

Although we didn't eat there, the menu looked very inviting. Instead we enjoyed the atmosphere of this very old and cosy pub. A fine selection of ales and like most pubs in Norfolk; a very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Great restaurant. A very quaint restaurant in the heart of Rutland. Srves excellent pizzas. A pity we need to go to the bar to get our drinks!

We were staying at The Hoste and disappointed with the food and service, so walked here for 2 evening meals . It was brilliant. Excellent food and first class service. Well worth a visit.

A place where you could sit back and imagine the old one-handed tar, with his nasal intonation making obnoxious pompous references. While going down famously with the locals. Food was good, but the price very slightly reflects the name and history. Worth a walk around Nelson's old hood while here, and imagine the youngster playing in the rectory garden.

A safe haven from some of the less desirables in the Hoste - the big wigs and name droppers - a good honest pub !

Unique surrounding, pleasant lunch; very fresh and tasty crab salad. Always welcoming to the walking group with or without the dogs and they don't mind the muddy boots.
