3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Service was very quick to say it is supposedly home cooked food. £10 for a lasagne that isnt very meaty seemed a tad overpriced - ive had better but then again ive had worse. Partner said his meal was okay. Drinks £2.50 each which is a little steep but seems the norm now. Chips werent great especially for £2.50 and... More

The place is a great location, but an odd mush mash of pub and American themed diner. Food good, but the sides and extras a little below par - never serve cheap ketchup! Drinks too expensive , especially overpriced pump cola.... Could be spot on but came away a little disappointed.

On our way back home we passed several pubs and by chance we stopped here. The barman was helpful and very pleasant , he was the only person in there apart from us so he was probably over the moon to see somebody. Two ladies came in asked for the menu read it then left odd i thought but our... More

Thankyou for your review of the Lord Nelson. I would like to point out that the two ladies you mentioned had already eaten and asked for a dessert menu, but after looking decided they were too full and left. Most of our food is homemade and we use high quality ingredients to make them, but as you only had two... More

Called in for lunch not been before. Nice welcome from the man behind the bar, who brought the menus, found plenty of choice both in food and offers, had the 2 courses for £9 95, the pie on the main was very tasty and the sweet delicious. The pub had a very nice atmosphere and the service second to none.... More

Stubbled across this pub/restaurant on our way from junction 36 M1 to the Woodhead pass/Flouch roundabout. The outside could do with a lick of paint and a few bits and pieces to add a bit of curb appeal but don't let that put you off!! Inside the tables are neatly laid out and the staff were very welcoming and friendly... More

Thankyou for your kind review of the Lord Nelson, I was pleased to here that you enjoyed your visit and will return. The pub is due for a refubishment next year which will spruce it up as it is looking a little tired in some areas, however we keep it to the highest standards possible. Hope to see you again...
