Dropped in after meeting friends that live in the village. Beautiful, home cooked food. I opted for the steak which was cooked to my preference. Staff were friendly and attentive. With the quiz as well, it was an entertaining evening. Will have to come again sometime.

I'm pleased to say it's just as good as it used to be, with delicious food at a reasonable price. We had the nachos to start... More

We choose the special of sticky porky loin in plum sauce which came with hand cut chips and salad. The food was hot on arrival and well presented, the salad was very fresh and everything tasted great. The... More

Taking my parents out for a thank you meal as they had been helping with DIY all day. We had planned to go to a pub further down the road as it was more local but had not registered the bonfire event at that one. So we continued up to the Lord Nelson. Within mins of walking through the door... More

After visiting Penistone bonfire we decided to go for food locally and as we have passed the Lord nelson numerous times we thought we would recommend it to the group. On arrival there was no welcome so we found ourselves a table and eventually we received menus that turned out to be all different to each other. Also one of... More
