Booked for early evening on Valentine's Day. Tables set with balloons, confetti and a silk rose. Only a few people in and the restaurant was rather chilly. However, the food was very nice - we had a steak and home made chips and salmon and new potatoes (the accompanying sauce was a bit thin), there were ample vegetables. Lemon tart... More

There is a very good menu with lots of choice and will definitely be going back. My husband had gammon, chips and peas off the light lunch menu but there was plenty. Me and my... More

We quite often lunch here with two friends. On this occasion we booked the Xmas lunch offer six of us(all family). The food was not bad but the veg was very much over cooked, but what was very annoying was that we were charged for pots of gravy that we never ordered or needed.

Thankyou for your review of the Lord Nelson, I was sorry you were not as satisfied as usual and your veg was a little overcooked. I have had a word with the person on duty that day about charging for the gravy, for which we never charge people for sauces or gravy. Having looked into the bill, it seems that... More

Early evening on a chilly November evening, - most important word here is chilly, as that was inside the pub, whether or not there was a problem with the heating I have no idea, but sat with coats on whilst dining, - anyway the food, served quickly, served hot and very tasty. But the overriding memory was the chill.

I do not usually leave reviews, but after reading the unbelievably harsh one by C H, I felt compelled to do so. I was at the Lord Nelson at the same time enjoying a meal with family (which was very good from a large homemade menu and a very generous portion), when a power cut hit the whole village. The...
