Nice pub food for a mid week meal, plenty of choice and lovely homemade food on offer. Prices are reasonable and its never normally that busy mid week to enjoy your dinner.

This pub/restaurant was new to me. I had an early evening meal here with friends, before tackling the Woodhead Pass, to return home to Manchester. The sole member of waiting on/bar staff was on top of his game - cool, calm, collected and polite. There was a varied menu, with a 'specials board' too. The food was nicely prepared and... More

We were a group of 13 people booked in for Sunday lunch. Two courses for £10.95 which was good value. The roast dinner was cooked and presented very nicely and the dessert choice was very nice too. I had treacle Sponge. There was a menu if you didn't want a roast. Staff nice and friendly, they were busy so we... More

We often come here as you don't have to book and the service and food are very good. The last time we came however, for our son's birthday, the service was very slow or non-existent (the waitress forgot my gin and tonic) and the food (when it arrived) very dry and not very hot. The staff were very nice however.... More

Once again we met up with friends for a much needed catch up. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Our order was placed and was served in what seemed a very short space of time. All the courses were served very hot which is something we all appreciated. The starters are of good proportions and very well presented, the... More

We have called twice now before eight pm , first time was told they had stopped serving ( before eight on a Friday !) and tonight were told that " there's a forty minute wait for food but then it may be too late to serve you"! Well, they won't get the chance again!

Thankyou for taking time to review the Lord Nelson. We serve food until 8.30pm, however on Friday we had a large party of 30 walk in who took up half the pub and did not order until late, so we could not take anymore walk in customers. This is very unusual and 99% of the time we would have fitted... More

Went here a few weeks ago for a family gathering. I must say I was so disappointed in the meal I had. I asked for a medium steak, others ordered different things, it took forever for the food to come, but my steak was very well done, it was like rubber. Another meal of Pulled Pork ribs was also overcooked.... More

Thankyou for taking time to review the Lord Nelson. I have looked into the problems that you incurred on that day and I appologise for the various mix ups, we did unfortunatly have a few staffing problems on that particular day which did not help, however I have addressed the problems to ensure it does not happen in the future....
