We have just returned from a lovely week in Southwold, and twice we decided to eat at the lord Nelson, once for lunch and once again for dinner. The pub is very popular, and we understand why - good food, great atmosphere and charming staff. The crab sandwhiches we had for lunch were very tasty, and the lord Nelson make very good chips. Our eldest daughter, who can be quite picky about food loved the "bangers and mash", and had it both times we visited. The pub has a nice garden, and thats were we had our lunch. During lunch we noticed what looked like an amazing burger, so my wife decided that on our next visit she would have that, and she was not dissapointed. A large beef patty, well cooked between a lovely toasted brioche bun, with a generous amount of good quality cheese and crispy bacon and a tart, came with refreshing take on a coleslaw ( no mayo) and a pickle. I my self went for the fish and chips and didnt regreat a second, evan after tasting a bite of the burger. The fish was perfectly cooked, the batter amazing and the home made tartare sauce was among the best I have tasted. The chips, as mentioned, are also very good - large and perfectly crispy. The fish and chips is also available as a take-away option, but then without the great tartare sauce, to bad for our baby sitter who was looking after our youngest daughter! The pub is very popular, and since children have only acces to parts of the etsablishment, families planning on eating should come early to find seats, we noticed quite a few families leaving, slightly dissapointed. All in all, a great and friendly pub, we hope to come back soon!
