Went with a few friends for some food. I just wanted a pizza. It was over priced and very bland. The base had no seasoning g and the cheese was flavourless. £1 for garlic wasn't reasonable. Have been to the Tobie Norris in Stamford a few times which is owned by the same group and normally had a good meal.... More

Food was bland. Pricing doesn't make sense, paid about £15 for a pizza with hardly any toppings and a bland base.

Amazing food! Rustic, tasty and well priced. Original features and modern decor well balanced. We had the "knead calzone" and chicken Kiev. Also great gin menu...it was very busy when we arrived about 7.20 and were lucky to get a table. It's a busy pub as well as restaurant and pizza seems a very popular choice.

We always enjoy coming here, although it's a shame you can't book a table. Food is great as is service.

Ross D, Operations Manager at The Lord Nelson, responded to this review

Thank you for your review and we are thrilled you enjoy the food and service. Unfortunately we try not to become too 'restauranty' and continue with the casual dining so that people feel welcome to pop in for just a coffee and a glass of wine without feeling they have to dine. We look forward to seeing you again soon!... More

Great place for a beer and a chat with mates but 9 times out of 10 the food is either over cooked/burnt or tasteless. If you want a cheap pizza and some wine however this is the place to go.
