Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wish this was our local. Warm welcome great beer and lovely atmosphere. Lovely beer garden for sunny days. Nice traditional pub. Try the port wine challenge! Only stayed for a couple of drinks but wish we had more time could have stayed all afternoon! Proper...Yorkshire pub.More

The wake for a young family man who was born, grew up & who’s family/friends still live in the village/area & was the pub he was a regular before he had children. Pub opened up for it earlier than their usual opening times as it...started at lunchtime so is clearly available to be used for certain occasions out of their usual opening times. It is only a small place inside but has a good amount of outdoor space available & hold a max of 40 to 50 people, it is typical cosy village pub the staff are friendly & there’s a good range of beers, lagers, soft drinks etc. The food was done by the pub which was one platter half brown half white bread egg mayo, one platter of tuna half & half, one platter ham half & half plus 5-6 small cakes which was each cut into quarters so giving four small quarters per cake. The food wasn’t anything special just basic sandwiches & shop bought cakes there also tea/coffee available that was in thermos flasks & was not particularly hot. The amount that was paid for the food was really very expensive for what was provided as the food was supposed to cater for 40 people. It was a lovely afternoon there but I would suggest if you are wanting some sort of food you would probably be better organising it yourself rather than having the pub do it & supply it.More

Every few years we travel to Luddenden and always visit The Nelson, A very friendly place which serves excellent food on a Wed night and weekends and pulls an excellent pint. The quiz on a Tuesday is worth playing We will be back.

Unfortunately, the sunday roast was a long time coming, dry and lacking in taste, and the carrots were barely cooked. The sandwich with chips was ok, though, but the piped music was intrusive and tinny. I can't really recommend the place on the basis of...our experience this time.More

We were invited to a surprise 60th Birthday party at The Lord Nelson Inn. The setting is in a tiny village with narrow streets steep slopes and very little parking. Inside are several small room a very well stocked bar. Packed with locals and a...great atmosphere, very friendly bunch. The pub had laid on a buffet which was lovely. Would certainly recommend a visit if you are in the area.More

We visited the Lord Nelson for a Wednesday lunch and had a great time with lovely food. The welcome was warm as soon as we walked in. A simple and varied menu of popular favourites. My steak and potato pie was lovely and the chips...were not the usual fries but proper chips of the sort you'd hope for in a good chippy. What's more is in a cracking location!More

Came as part of a large group of 35 for the Bradford literature festival's Brontë Heritage Tour. The pub is hidden away in the beautiful surroundings of Luddenden foot. Despite tight timings the staff managed to serve everyone with their homemade plate pies very efficiently,...and we all left replete to continue our tour. We'd never been to Luddenden prior to this trip, but now I'm certain we'll return to the pub which is steeped in history, as a former haunt of Branwell Brontë.More
