That's all there is really. Visited at a quiet time..... Prices were reasonable and the steak pie was soft and well presented with tasty pastry. Marked for a future visit whilst on a sunny drive!

We all had the same, Gamon Steak with Cheddar and BBQ sauce. Very tasty. And furthermore, we had a Gourmet taste card and they accepted it without the usual fuss, like calling and booking etc.

Was greeted by a friendly barman, we were taken to a table where it was nice and warm, it been a cool day. We had each a different dish(I had the smothered gammon). All was very enjoyable. I have a Telegraph/gourmet club discount card which was accepted with no question.

Definitely a rough with the smooth evening meal.. Initially met at the bar by a friendly barman, who took our drinks order and allocated our party of five a table.. My father had the New York burger which he later commented on was probably the best burger he'd ever had! Quite an accolade. I had the 'Full Rack Of Ribs'... More

We have had two recent pleasant meal experiences at The Lord Nelson. It's nothing special but worthy of a visit. Friendly service, good food and excellent value for money.

Had Sunday lunch and should have known when it appeared within five minutes of ordering what to expect. Tinned veg and cold. Also partner had one tiny slice of beef. Also ice cream very old as full of ice crystals. Really if you can't be bothered to prepare anything fresh then don't be surprised that customers won't return. Sorry but... More

Had a trip to the Lord Nelson, party of 8 , was amazed at the menu, an American theme. Staff was friendly and service was good at the right price too. A nice country pub offering great food.

Went to the Lord Nelson for Sunday Lunch. Restaurant was about half full so was able to choose our table. Prawns in my prawn cocktail had clearly been frozen as they were not fresh and were very rubbery. The sauce was watery. Roast beef dinner was ok but the Yorkshire was not edible as it was so overcooked. The 3... More
