called in for a meal on our way back from Manchester, we have always enjoyed a meal here, but was disappointed today, myself & my partner was still hungry after spending over £30 on a steak a mixed grill , maybe we should have had 3 courses then we would have felt as if we had eaten something .

Thankyou for reviewing the Lord Nelson, I was sorry to here that our meals were not sufficient enough for you, our steaks are an 8oz cut and are mixed grills are 16oz of meat which is accompanied with homemade chips, onion rings, grilled tomato and salad, most of our customers find this sufficient, but if not feel free to ask...

First time I had been here in 20 years. What a change!!!! Met up with family. Was not overly busy. Our food order was pretty straight forward, although I did ask for a portion of raw red onions. Food arrived promptly, was of great quality and very reasonably priced! Nothing was forgotten! Mum was even supplied with a cushion as... More

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

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
