“Wonderfully Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

My husband and I and 2 friends stayed here only one night, but we'd definitely come back again and stay longer next time.

We stayed in The Blacksmith Room which was very large and quite comfortable and our friends had (I believe) The Stable Room next door, a cosy twin room. Unfortunately for my personal taste, the double bed was a bit hard, but our room (obviously a family room) also contained a couple of twin beds which were better for my back. Spacious bathroom and the room was warm, despite the cold drizzle and fog outside.

On arrival, we wanted lunch, which the pub does not serve, and the owner directed us to a very nice butchers just 5 minutes down the road which did sandwiches. We brought them back, bought our drinks and even though we didn't expect it, we were provided with plates and napkins - a nice touch of hospitality.

They do evening meals and a glance at the meal showed a lovely variety of home-cooked items, but we were fortunate enough to be there for Friday - Steak night, and the four of us enjoyed a well-cooked and quite reasonably priced steak dinner (£18.95 for two meals, including a large glass of wine each).

The only negative comments I would have is that the rooms adjoin the smoking area connected to the back of the pub and the sounds of conversation, although not raucous, was clearly audible in our room, but the pub closes at midnight and after that, it was beautiful silent all night long. Also breakfast is not included in the price, but if you request it, you can have breakfast at a cost the next morning. We're not breakfast people and there's coffee in the room, so this was not an issue for us.

Next time we're up in that area, we would most definitely stay and would recommend it to others as well.

Just dropped in on our way between London and the North East via the A1 for some lunch having found our first choice unable to serve after 3pm.
Sunday lunch for 2 with a drink of coke came to £14. Great value for money I thought.
Service was excellent; friendly, prompt and able to assist with my wife's dietary requirements.
Sunday lunch was nice. Vegetables not over-cooked, decent yorkshire pudding, loads of tasty gravy and nicely cooked beef. My only wish was that the roasties were cooked a little more as they were a little underdone on the inside.
However, for a pub Sunday lunch at this price, highly recommended. Nicely decorated inside and space outside to enjoy the sunshine (and a bouncy castle that day for the kids).

We have just had a family engagement party and baby welcome party here. I wanted to say that the hospitality, food and service was amazing. How they managed to accommodate our requests, I will never know, it was simply fantastic. The children at the party were happy, this was down to the provision of a bouncy castle and play area (both provided by the land lord). Happy kids mean happy parents. Our bar request was fulfilled, the venue was perfect, the food was outstanding and highly recommended, even the weather was kind to us... so I want to say a huge THANK YOU on behalf of all my family and our friends for making this day extra special.

Our family stayed overnight at The Lord Nelson we ate our evening meal and breakfast at this B and B/ public house.
The choice of evening meal was good and, if hungry try the mixed grill, it defeated my brother in law who enjoyed it immensely.
The rooms were clean and perfect for our needs, an overnight stay to rest before continuing travelling.
The breakfast's were also lovely and the staff were incredibly helpful, even giving us fresh milk for tea in our rooms, I would recommend The Lord Nelson without hesitation.
