“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We ate here on a Sunday evening one of the few places you can dine in Littlehampton on a Sunday Evening, they serve food till 7pm but we were told if you book a table in advance you can eat anytime on a Sunday,

This is a section in the main pub, it was spotless clean and the tables were set out to a high standard the black granite table tops looked lovely and the décor was cosy and inviting!


The meal ( not pub prices were erring more on the restaurant side) but this compensates for the excellent food, the service was faultless, we will return again and again as we are locals.

There was a wide selection of meats & fish and vegetarian all fresh and cooked to order they even serve Lobster hot or cold! The desserts were excellent as well,

We couldn't fault anything! This is the same family that own the Vardar so very high standards and service

“Yum, yum & yum”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Wanted a Sunday roast, and we got one that far exceeded expectations. Huge bowl of veg & spuds to share, all cooked perfectly. Not the cheapest two course meal but well worth it to actually enjoy a meal out and leave feeling full and satisfied. Only criticism was the custard in my syrup sponge which had split and possibly 'caught' in the pan as tasted bit burnt, but hey at least it was homemade! Top marks for a lovely meal in a lovely spacious environment which I thought was simply a pub from outside. It's not, it's much better!

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

My family and I had lunch in the Nelson Hotel last Sunday and it was truly magnificent. We were 4 adults and 2 children and all our meals were tasty, hot and plentiful. I would thoroughly recommend the Nelson to anyone and I am hoping to persuade my fellow residents where I live to consider Christmas Dinner there during December for our yearly "do."
