“Christmas 2013”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

WOW! We had my works do here in December. There were 12 of us. We pre-ordered our food and it came presented beautifully. Lots of it!
The main course was Massive, the turkey was succulent and the 5 different sorts of veg was very impressive. We had to have a break betwee courses. Most of us chose the alternative to christmas pudding which was a very rich chocolate cake.
We left very full up and satisfied and happy, great value for money!

“Good place to eat”
Reviewed 27 November 2013 via mobile

Just returned from the Admiral Nelson after dining with my husband and daughter. The food was excellent, well prepared and extremely tasty. We live locally, but somehow missed what is on our doorstep will definitely be returning to sample more of what's on the menu.

“5 stars just doesn't do it justice! Fantastic!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We first discovered the Admiral Nelson when passing through Braunston on our narrowboat a couple of months ago. We ate here on a saturday night & were so impressed we changed our route home & rearranged our ittineary so we could stay an extra day to sample the Sunday Roast. Wow, was it worth it! The saturday night food was fantastic enough, but the cuts of meat for the sunday roast were out of this world, turning a nice afternoon out into a real occasion, the best sunday roast we've ever had. The food is so exquisitely prepared & presented, forget any notions that this is just pub food, this is a-la-carte at its finest. Price wise, it's fantastic value for the quality on offer & the staff are helpful & friendly. The atmosphere is relaxing with great views over the canal & local countryside. We have since returned by car even though it's a 190 mile round trip for us -it's that good & we are eagerly looking forward to our next visit, whether that's by car or boat! One word of warning though, it's rightly very popular, so really it's essential to book.
Adrian & Sam, Staffs.

“Lovely country place to eat, relaxed environment with good service and lovely food”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Have eaten here a few times and all has been good so it's about time I left a review. The staff are always welcoming, the atmosphere is friendly, the table settings are low key and snug. The menu is not hugely extensive, which we like as it helps with making our food choice. Dishes are cooked and presented beautifully, and are very tasty. The steaks are so well cut, cooked to perfection, tasty and juicy. Good value for money and great,friendly service.

“Great food”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Loved the food and so well presented. Very tasty and so full of flavour. Good service and a good selection of drinks. Lovely open fire and comfy sofas. Only one down side is the toilets could do with a re-fresh.
