We were doing a house-clear nearby and needed lunch. We'd heard good things about this place. At about 1pm, the public bar had a few mild inebriates in, adding character to what is definitely a traditional, un-selfconcious pub. Enjoyable music choice (for us old folk, anyway - mostly 60s and 70s). Menu was pretty standard pub grub; we had a... More

Lovely pub to have a drink but the room didn't live up to what the previous reviews had led us to imagine. Although the room was clean but just a bit tired, the room was very cold and the bed was very hard and uncomfortable. On the website where we booked the room it stated that the bed was supposed...

We visited the Nelson Railway on Sunday with our two sons age 3 and 19 months. The kids menu was really good and had a wide variety of food, which also had scampi which my boys love. My husband and I had a roast beef which was very tasty. The only thing I will mention is the lady at the... More

Had a very good night here. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the general atmosphere is welcoming. The room was warm and clean with a comfortable bed and excellent (and very large) en suite bathroom. Spent a lot of the evening in the pub with a group of friends and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating.... More

Good room - clean with all basic amenities. Decent, freshly cooked breakfast and good value overall. Our evening meal was disappointing - limited menu and poor choice of wines (only had 3 available and ran out of the Rioja after two bottles) and the vegetarian meal (Stuffed Peppers) in particular was very bland. No table service. Lively bar, very busy... More

We travel to see my son and granddaughter in Nottingham two or three times a year and usually find a low cost bed and breakfast for one or two nights so that we are not rushing back to Manchester. This time a checked out quite a few hotels on TripAdvisor before booking this pub/hotel had excellent write ups and was... More

This was our third stay here and it is consistently good in all areas. The room was the one of our choice and it was lovely and warm. Very comfortable facilities. We had an evening meal prior to going out and was delicious and cooked to perfection. We had breakfast which was piping hot. The dining room is cosy and... More

Visited with a group tired, cold & hungry after a long walk. Pub provides a warm welcome, good range of beers & tasty, good value food. It's a pity I don't have a local like this near me. Highly recommended.

Stayed overnight in an excellent double room- very spacious, clean and well furnished. The pub itself is a proper pub with a great atmosphere and wholesome grub. The best bit though is the staff - all helpful and welcoming, providing great service.

This place us a gem. The rooms in the B&B are warm clean and quiet. The food is very good quality and the veg was fresh and very well cooked. The staff, well what can we say, apart from the fact that they are wonderful and Emma in particular manages to juggle the needs of delegates, travellers and the locals... More
