Horrible place
I had heard this was supposed to be a nice pub .
Food menu availability is too limited and not very good
Drinks expensive
Rude staff

We won't be going back . The place is a dump . They call the car park a garden when in reality it's just a few old chairs and tables slung outside . The pub is dirty looking God only knows what the kitchen hygiene is like . We've been to the Oat hill a few times and always thoroughly enjoyed it . I think we will stick with the Oat hill next time .

As Carlsberg would probably the most expensive pub in Market Harborough !

Been to this place a few times. I see that it has been tidied up with new decor. Pity they didn't get rid of the old staff when they threw out the old furniture. Expensive pint of beer and no atmosphere staff not very friendly and unwelcoming and miserable , can go to so many other places in Harborough Which offer much better service and value too. whenen you compare prices here it's a rip off with the Nags offering £2 pint big difference . Probably won't be too long before this place shuts down .

Went there as I used to be a regular for over ten years. Moved to other side of town so a bit out of my way now. Sat in the lounge with my friends who have never been. Had told them what a good pub it was. Anyway I am fifty and my friends took up the bar stools. I pulled up a chair and rested on the back of it. Was asked not to do this! Really! Anyway had been their two weeks previously and had not been welcomed then. Will not go back.

Great traditional pub
Apr 2017 • Solo
Situated in the heart of the estate at the back of Cov. Rd., the Nelson is a great local pub.

The bar has a pool table and dart board a the the lounge has TV with BT Sport. The landlords (a lovely couple, Tim and Jan) are mainly rugby folk but will happily put on the football if it doesn't clash.

The food is simple but fine pub grub and the beer (from the Wells stable) is always superb.

It's in my top 3 pubs in Mkt Harb.

Went to the beer festival with my teenage son and stayed to listen to the bands and enjoy a few drinks.

Great couple of hours, even the Morris dancers couldn't spoil my pint!

Always a warm welcome from Tim & Jan. Excellent food.

I think the previous reviewer must have got the wrong place! Firstly, The Admiral Nelson is not next to a canal, secondly, the food prepared by Tim is first class. He would be mortified to hear his food is a let down, as he takes pride in presenting excellent food - always prepared from scratch and not the pre-prepared rubbish served up in most pubs.
The Nelson caters for many tastes and serves excellent real ales alongside the home cooked food. This is a real pub - not a plastic reproduction and attracts a wide cross section of people. Well behaved dogs are made welcome and will even be offered a treat from the dog biscuit tin in the bar!

Nice place, but rather disappointing food
Nov 2015 • Friends
We went for Sunday lunch with friends on a rather gloomy November day. The setting would be beautiful on a nice summer day-quiet and peaceful by the canal. The pub has a nice atmosphere, with comfy seating, books etc. The food let down the experience. My husband and I each ordered the roast beef, which was described as very slow cooked brisket. I wasn't surprised that it was fatty, but we both found it tough and gristly.

I think you have the wrong place. We are not located next to the canal and we do not cook food on Sunday . All I can say is that I am very sorry you did not enjoy the food where ever it was.
