Traditional pub a few minutes from HB main station. It's dark, musky, low ceilings and offers pub grub as well a good selection of beers on tap. No Guiness here, only Murphy's stout.

The've got lots of screens all over the place showing mostly football and a dart board.

They have happy hour every week day evening with reduced prices and the place gets extremely busy. Pop in for a pint.

Why I like it? Lots of expats here. It's great to get away from the depressing locals with their constant pessimistic attitudes. Positive vibes are all I ask for...

I come here with friends often and try to come around Unhappy Hour. Beer is slightly cheaper. They have Boddingtons (also available in cans in many Coop food stores) and others. This is a pub and can get crowded and noisy. Nice and quiet during lunch time.

This superb pub is close to the railway station just a couple of minutes stroll.
The pub is decorated in a reassuring and traditional style with nautical overtures - well what else would you expect with the name Nelson?
The selection of draft beers is great and has both local and UK beers on tap. The staff are friendly and efficient and the beer is in excellent condition.
The food is very good and generous portions too.
For the sports fan there are live games and a darts board completes the authentic pub atmosphere.
One of our group was celebrating their birthday and suddenly the whole staff broke out in song, a round of drinks appeared and a huge chocolate cake too!
