Scrummy food

8 of us, 4 adults 4 children all found the food scrummy. Husband enjoyed the beer and the surroundings. Lots of history about Nelson to take in and staff were very friendly.

Went on car treasure hunt with 25 people. The organiser Tony had booked a week ahead for sandwiches etc, it cost £12 per head and if I had paid £5 a head I would have been disappointed. The group must have spent another £100 between us on drinks. Very poor value indeed. Will not go there again!

Great food. Sandwiches to die for. Went back again. This time, meatloaf (yes, MEATLOAF, hand made on premises) with gravy, mash and veg. Gorgeous. Boss had brie and bacon toastie both times. "Never had a better one", quoth she! Such an historic feel to the alehouse that Horatio Nelson frequented in his younger years. But a beggar to find! So... More

Nelson's local still has bags of atmosphere and is well worth a visit. The meals I've had there have been well cooked and reasonably priced. Pity the range of ales etc is so limited; is that the fault of the brewery?

Very welcoming by both landlord and the local customers. Well kept beer served through a hatch. Sea shanty singers on a Monday evening in February, producing a cheerful atmosphere. This pub is a real star.

Ate here with my partner on Saturday evening. The pub was very busy with a 50th birthday meal going on, but the staff were still attentive. The beef casserole was excellent, good quality meat and a really tasty thick gravy. Meals come with vegetables and a choice of potatoes included. The cheese board was also very good, with a choice...

Very friendly staff had a simple lunch and a drink at lunch time whilst walking. Waitress went out of her way to change sandwich to suit my husband. Very simple very old pub wooden tables and brick floors felt like I'd gone back in time.

Delicious seafood for two - we arrived just in time to enjoy before the kitchen closed at 2.30. Staff were delightful. Sat at Nelson's table.
