“best in house brewed beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Unless it's changed, I used to go here with work friends in winter next to the open fire and drink their awesome beer (and I don't even like beer)

“Historic pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The Lord Nelson is one of the several historic old pubs in The Rocks and a nice place to stop when you fancy a break from touring around the many antique shops in the area.

“An absolute institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

There is still something special about a night in The Rocks - in many ways, it is the heart and soul of Sydney and the Lord Nelson is a special part of it. It is perhaps the oldest pub still surviving in Sydney - whilst much of the neighbouring areas are being modernised with new office buildings and apartment blocks, this still reminds you of the early days of Sydney.

“Great place to have a drink and a pie.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Found this pub while doing a pub crawl geocache earlier in the day and decided to go back for dinner that night. Great atmosphere. Not a tourist trap - mostly locals. Monday night special was $7 beef pies which were great. Fun time.
