“Great Pub just seconds from the Sea”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We were staying in a holiday flat just around the corner so The Lord Nelson was our local, .Great selection of food from sandwiches to main meals. I would recommend the scallops which were excellent. A fine selection of Adnams beers also. Well worth a visit.

“real pub”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

ate here bank holiday friday. was very busy as expected. guess we was lucky to get a table .I had the sea bass & my partner had lemon sole . we had pate as starters. food was good. remember this is a pub & not a restaurant. & be prepared to get barged about & locals slamming there paper on your table. but that's part of the fun. would like a session in there on the aspells next time im in town

Southwold is always a good place for fish and chips, but today's fish and chips at The Lord Nelson was superb!
