Great food at reasonable prices

This is a buzzing little restaurant with a small but great menu. We chose fish and chips and belly pork and loved them. Portions were ample and we were glad we hadn't chosen starters; no room left for a pud either! Wine was reasonably priced and service was friendly and efficient. It's a bit... read more

My husband took me here for lunch on our wedding anniversary. The food was fabulous. We shared a Mezze plate (although I recommend having one of these starters to yourself). My husband had the Greek-style wrap which he enjoyed and I had the Chicken Burger which was best Chicken Burger I have ever eaten. We shared a chocolate and lime... More

...Tripadvisor asks "have you been again since your last review?" And tells me that if we have I can review it again, so I will, because it's deserved. So, yes, tripadvisor, of course we have, an embarrassing number of times in fact, and we keep going because the food is consistently great. Last time I had a melt in the... More

I have been a few times to Nelson street and sincerely it is always a pleasure going there. The staff are so friendly and always trying to help with anything you need. Moreover, the food is fantastic, just the right amount of food, very tasty and good quality.

This is my 3rd time here and although the 'originality' has worn off, we weren't disappointed by another good meal. Portions aren't large but what we got was extremely enjoyable. We both had the set menus and both the starters and sweets were delicious. Decent wine list to match and prompt service. Very little else to add and will definitely... More

We've probably eaten at Nelson Street at least half a dozen times, and we've never been disappointed. The cooking is simply outstanding - modern English, and almost everything has a deliciously surprising twist; the service is friendly but efficient; the atmosphere in the evening seems to buzz whatever the day of week.. Our latest meal, for a birthday celebration, was... More

Nelson St opened only a few years ago, but it was like an oasis bursting into a desert (if that's not mixing metaphors.) We've been many times, and we've got to know the owner and his staff, and I remember the owner (who is also the head chef - he trained at the Ivy) saying he wanted to introduce London... More

Nelson Street serves a very good range of altogether different food which sets it apart from any other restaurant you may have eaten at before. The service is very welcoming and friendly, but it can be a little slow when they are busy, or have a large party to look after. The venue is a little on the small side,... More

I've been here now countless times and the staff are so friendly and always very accommodating. The food is excellent and with an ever changing menu there is always something new to try. The table by the kitchen is a great one to sit at.
