Some weeks ago my elderly wife and I were driving to Bristol on the A420 when we were badly held up by road works at Ford so when we finally got through both nature and hunger called so instead of continuing on the Marshfield bypass we went into the village at into the first pub we saw which was The Lord Nelson. Although it was well after 1 o'clock we were warmly welcomed by the landlord and some other friendly people who were probably Locals. Two fires were burning brightly and as we were late we only had some coffee and really excellent Minestrone Soup with crusty bread. As we liked the Nelson so much in every way we took a look at the whole Menu and a very nice looking Specials Board deciding we would definitely return for a full meal.
We have now just been back but for a Sunday Carvery for only £8:95.Luckily we had booked as we were later told this was a very necessary as they regularly serve over 100 with their Carvery. We had a choice of Beef, Pork or Ham and had some of each carved for us. They were all beautifully cooked and really delicious as were the vegetables. They seemed really busy with several families too. The service from their staff, some quite young, was first class and the whole atmosphere warm and friendly. We shall definitely return but next time take some friends with us and probably as we are both retired for a weekday lunch or evening meal. We would recommend the Nelson to anyone - their December Christmas Menu looks really good too.
