Typical Holt's pub, friendly atmosphere and never any trouble. No food but the highlight has to be the 16 year old Saturday night disco in the vault. Always a good night - cheap and cheerful and never a bad word.

This is my 'local' and if you like traditional ale with typical northern hospitality (we will make anyone feel welcome) then it is worth a visit. No food is served but you can purchase 'bar snacks ' . Most beer's are cask conditioned but others are available

This pub probably has the last traditional vault in the trafford area.
The beer is always kept to the highest standard.
A good selection of Joseph Holt cask ales
The atmosphere is what makes this such a good inviting pub.
The employees are friendly and share a joke.
If you are ever in the Trafford area a visit is a must.

A traditional Holts pub that are sadly disappearing.The place was quiet on the Sunday afternoon we visited but the ale was superb.If you want to sample great beer in a proper Manchester pub then this is the place for you.

The Lord Nelson (AKA "The Nellie") is a throwback to how pubs used to be, no nonsense, no kids not even any food! Just good beer at a good price.
I suppose the only concessions they have made to the modern era is the showing of football on the many screens and the Saturday night disco.
The atmosphere is pleasant, never any nastiness or trouble, sometimes a little sedate but if what you are looking for is an old fashioned English pub and a good drink, this is the place for you. By the way Holts's Bitter is legendary - get it down you, tastes like nectar.
