I only get to use this lovely pub about once a month but the food is always first class. High restaurant cuisine served without losing the feel of a great country pub. Just had a business lunch with clients and the Christmas menu was fantastic which we couldn't resist despite it being only the 3rd December! Delicious lamb.. wow! Service... More

Hi visited the general area in September 2013. I really enjoyed the meal and the price was good value for money. My grand parents where both born in this part of England and I hope to return again for a longer stay . I am sure I will visit the pub again one day.

Needed somewhere to have lunch, had dog with us and needed to take mother out. This is a pub not far from where my mother lives. Being well past retirement age she enjoyed the food and the service, our dog loved it (sausages) and we had and excellent lunch. The menu was varied, the food well cooked, and the staff... More

I fell in love with this pub when I relocated to South Somerset. It's always buzzing with all age groups ( unlike the pub in my own village). Food fab, staff friendly, owners welcoming. My sons love it here too.

My other half decided to take me for lunch at The Lord Nelson as part of my birthday celebrations. Had an absolutely fine time. The food was very good, well presented, generous portions and very high quality. I went for three courses and each one was fantastic. Only problem was trying to move afterwards as I was so stuffed.

Bristling and busy as the gun deck of HMS Victory, the huge dining room of The Lord Nelson sweeps around the bar to deliver a welcome broadside of good food and ale to esidents and visitors of Norton sub Hamdon, a handsome hamstone village below the soaring hill from which it takes its name and stone. Once called the Nelson... More

We decided to try the 2 Rump Steaks and a bottle of wine for £25 offer on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Excellent choice! Good job we booked a table the offer is popular, and for good reason.

The best experience of a village pub I've ever come across. The two evenings my friend and I spent here were filled with much laughter provided by friendly, chatty locals. Accompanied by amazing food and cider, served by polite and friendly staff, you just can't go wrong. Watch out, we're back in August!
