What a super pub. The staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly and accommodating. They couldn’t have done anymore to help us after our vehicle broke down after dark. The food is excellent and they have a vast selection of drinks available🎊🎉

We love this pub and the food is always great. We were not disappointed when we went to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. The food and service again was excellent and positive comments from all in our party of 10.

There is a lovely 8 mile circular walk from Flecknoe to Braunston and the Admiral Nelson falls around the half way point. It's beautifully situated, wonderfully atmospheric, absolutely peaceful and the both the food and service are praiseworthy. We are already planning a return visit.
