Had an enjoyable meal, albeit a restricted menu on a sun evening, we were well fed and watered. My only comment would be more gravy please with the roast dinner :)

I came across The Lord Nelson Inn when looking for a lunch spot to meet a friend halfway between Chepstow and Frome. It's easy to get to from the M4/A46. The standard menu was varied with daily specials on a blackboard including a homemade pie of the day. Pleasant atmosphere with friendly locals with plenty of helpful advice. Would definitely return.

Nice to see what a pub like this is really like in mid winter and freezing, pissing rain.
Great warmth with a couple of log burners, friendly locals, very friendly and capable bar staff, good beers (for my preferences) and good food with excellent service. Homemade ice cream and waffle as a dessert would be recommended.

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.

My wife and I were staying in Cold Ashton nearby with my wife's parents and had already spied the Lord Nelson earlier that day when visiting and decided to book in for an evening meal. The menu was very diverse and varied and offered a great selection of both home cooked specialities and some great offers.

My in-laws decided to have the steak and the fish and chips which were on offer that evening (£18.95 for two dishes, can't go wrong!). Both came beautifully presented and in good portion sizes too and the in laws were very happy in their food choices. I had the steak and ale pie which was really nicely cooked, very tasty and went down a treat on a wet cold Halloween evening. My wife had the mushroom risotto which was really well cooked and delicious. Both of the waiting staff were really friendly and kindly fetched drinks, condiments and ensured our meals were all in order.

Alastair and Claire made us feel very welcome and came over during the evening to say hello, collect plates, take dessert orders and given how busy they were that evening we felt very welcome at their pub.

The dessert choices were great, some lovely sticky toffee pudding and a gorgeous honey/vanilla ice cream.

The atmosphere has been made very friendly and given it was halloween the children coming in and out were welcomed into the pub with a tray of sweet things which didn't disturb the dining guests, both publicans were chatty and friendly with the children and parents alike.

Would we return? Most definitely, it's now firmly on our list of places we know in and around Bath and we look forward to a return visit.

Thanks for a lovely evening and a superb end to our holiday week.
