“Welcoming traditional, back street pub, 5 mins from the city centre.”
Review of The Lord Nelson

Restaurant details
Reviewed December 27, 2013

A pub that retains much of the traditional feel, despite a certain amount of modernisation. Very popular, especially on match days when Sheffield United are at home & clearly a 'Blades' boozer, though they do welcome the odd away fan.

The pub itself is tiny but it is surprising how many customers it can accommodate & this only adds to the atmosphere, with a small bar on the ground floor & another similar sized one upstairs. The beer/lager is of the usual kind expected in a city centre pub but the Nelson, (also known as Fanny's to the regulars, though nobody appears to know why. Perhaps an old landlady?), also provides a regular supply of guest beers at the pumps. Can't really comment on the food. I've only ever seen a few sandwiches on offer but this is really a pub for a good drink & somewhere to soak up the atmosphere. One of those pubs where somebody will strike up a conversation. Saying that, it does boast a large number of tvs for its size, showing the usual sports & has a decent jukebox.

All in all, a decent pub that is not to commercialised & run by one of the big chains & for that, it retains its charm.
