Lovely lunchtime drinks.
Aug 2021
Called in here lunchtime Monday 16th Aug for drinks with friends. Excellent efficient and friendly service. We sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed being able to have a drink without worrying. The Nelson to me is the best pub in Farnham. It seeps history and is always a warm comforting place to visit. We only had drinks so I cannot comment on food etc. The staff were really very nice and made us feel so welcome and when we left an hour later they wished us a great afternoon. Its the small details that make things seem very good to us and the Nelson has that touch.

Sad
Aug 2021 • Friends
Normally a lovely visit to this pub for a drink. Sadly not this time! When I enquired bout a regular drink on the bill the young man (not Sam) got quite cross- this was after having 2 other drinks that were not ours added to the bill as well. This was a regular haunt but I will not be coming back with my friend. Food was ok but chips a mixture of burnt and crispy- not too great. Maybe check the attitude of staff who believe they are right and disagree with a customer.

Food and atmosphere
Jun 2021 • Couples
We have been to the Nelson a few times recently but never eaten. Wow were we impressed. Amazing sausage and mash and scampi with fantastic service from Annya, Neil and Sam. 10 out of 10 to the chef.
Some silly game called football was playing on the TV outside which meant for an understandably buzzy atmosphere and hats off to all the staff that managed both the floor and the football crowd. Never an easy task. Highly recommended.

A real jewel in Farnham
Oct 2019
I travel the country for work so spend a lot of time eating out...but have never come across a place that ticks all my boxes like The Nelson Arms in Farnham. A large roaring log fire welcomes you into this beautifully cosy pub and restaurant with lovely warm lighting. The atmosphere was happy and the service was exceptional. The menu has something for everyone. Starters ranging from Crispy Teriyaki Beef to Breaded Asparagus to Homemade Soup with crusty bread and butter plus many others. For my main I chose the Homemade Chicken and Mushroom Pie with veg and homemade chips which was completely delicious but I could have easily chosen Roasted Pork Belly, 1/2 Rack of BBQ Spare Ribs and Chicken Combo or Steak, Stroganoff or a Risotto to name a few...the sweets were also very moorish... I understand that Carl the landlord has only been running this pub for a year but it’s very clear he has all the qualities to succeed.

Lovely Sunday roast
Aug 2019 • Family
Staff are very friendly and accommodating, we hadn’t pre booked a table but they managed to fit 8 of us in on a very busy day (Soapbox was being held in Farnham). We all had the roast beef, very nice indeed, great presentation.

Sunday lunch
Jan 2019 • Family
Visited for Sunday lunch and was very disappointed, only roasts on the menu, no starters or desserts or alternative mains, the roasts we did have were average at best with over cooked meat. The front of house we’re very polite however. Won’t be rushing back anytime soon, such a shame as they used to do the best Sunday lunch in Farnham.

Traditional Pub with excellent food.
Dec 2018 • Friends
I have eaten here a few times now since it has reopened and I am really impressed. This is a traditional pub with an open fire and a lot of history.
New owner Carl and he’s delightful team work so hard to make you welcome. It really has a lovely atmosphere.
They serve fresh food that tastes wonderful. The sticky toffee pudding is the best I have ever tasted! They are doing a Sunday Roast which I suggest you pre book as it is getting very popular.
I have never been a pub sort of person but since finding this little gem I find myself meeting up with friends for a chat and a bottle of wine and feeling very comfortable in the surroundings.
