“Basic Pub Grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

We came here as a get together as The Lord Nelson is big enough to seat quite a few of you without booking. The deals 2 can dine for £10.99 are great - just what you want when catching up with friends - a nice pinot grigio at average prices and a quick meal... We ordered and 10 mins we were eating. Staff polite & helpful but maybe short staffed!

“Delicious Meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

When myself and husband go out for a meal we always choose The Lord Nelson Hotel every time. The menu`s are easily read and have a great variety of meals to order at a reasonable price too. The meals are delicious and plentiful with choices to compliment your meal serving baked potato, chips or boiled new potatoes. The eating area is disabled friendly and have a good amount of tables to eat at. This is an order at the bar policy and pay with cash or credit/debit cards welcomed. It is a great place to go for a romantic meal or meet up with friends or family for a get together over a meal and drinks.

“Disasterous Meal.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

Well, I was a part of a party here, with over 30 guests. Service was appalling. We had one waiter to serve us all. By the time he had all the meals out, the first had finished. (The waiter was excellent - but for management to expect him to serve that mainly on his own is unbelievable.)

To be honest, I felt sorry for him - as he would have been better off leaving the food in the kitchen. I had a simple meal of Gammon with Pineapple and Chips. The Gammon appeared as if it was cut in half to share with someone else!!! The Pineapple was a slice cut off the pineapple, with the skin and core....(It is good to go through the hassle of fresh pineapple - but at least peel it!)

Many of the others either had cold meals served to them which they had to send back - or ended up being disappointed.

As for Bar service, we can't complain about the drinks - as we struggled to get one! The two barmen we serving as fast as they could to customers - but in the end they run out of glasses. They were all dirty along the bar as they were so stretched serving that they couldn't get time to wash them.

Lovely setting - but we won't be returning.

“Anchovies served in a TIN !!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

We have frequented both the Bar and the restaraunt at The Lord Nelson for many years, and love the place. However we went for dinner in a group of 10 the other night, and were not all pleased with what we had to eat or the service. For starterssome chose ortiz anchovies
esp with toasted wood fire bread - -nineteen dollars?

The Anchovies may very well have came from Spain, but they were serverd in an non descipt TIN on a plate with a couple of bits of very ordinary Toast. Reckon you could put same togetheer for may 2 dollars. Shame on who ever manages the restaurant, the rest of the food was wel below average. We will not be going back until they change the management of the once highly regarder restaraunt. No one take well to being royaly Ripped Off.

“Best value in 10 years travelling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Read my review. Cant be bothereed retyping it.
Brilliant value, under £75 for this level of service, location, Bed, Breakfast, evening meal, 2 good beers and an excellent extravagent welsh whisky... by 3 Staff who are genuinely happy, freindly and eager to help. Born and raised happy? Managed to stay that way, with no need for any silly customer service training.

If I am anywhere near Milford Haven in future I wont even have to look on Trip Advisor, I know exactly where I want to stay. And my boss will be more than happy with the price, again.
David.
