For a Wednesday evening, the restaurant was full, which may have been the reason for the delay in between courses. However, the staff explained and apologized for this.. Nice friendly atmosphere and vast range of starters and main courses. The food is of a high quality for fish and meat lovers. Will definitely visit again and make sure to use... More

Six of us ate here to celebrate a friends birthday on a Saturday night. Welcome and service throughout the evening was very good. Menu is quite extensive and prices are reasonable. Food quality was mixed, starters were all good, steaks were good, but the duck dish was like rubber. Setting is a bit sterile and not in keeping with the... More

Took Mum to The Nelson this Friday evening for a belated Mother's Day meal. We had the pork, swordfish and haddock. All 3 meals were extremely tasty and HUGE, we couldn't finish them. The crackling on the pork was outstanding :) Dessert we had creme brulee, lemon meringue and cheesecake, again all huge and full of flavour. I do believe... More

This was the first time we've visited the Nelson and my daughter took us for my birthday dinner. The staff were very friendly and helpful as soon as we entered. My husband and I were shown straight to the table where our daughter and family were already waiting. We were asked if we would like our drinks straight away and... More

Just wanted to say a big Thanks to Ed and all the staff for a great family lunch this weekend. Even though the pub was very busy with bookings and a function in the marquee our food and service was top notch as always. A special mention for the children's meals that my nieces had, they were fantastic!

On a warm Saturday afternoon, joined by my partner and 93 year old grandmother, we had the choice of a few local establishments. After a final decision of going to the Nelson, one we have not been to in a while, we were excited to try it again. On arrival we entered into the restaurant area. After waiting for nearly... More

Firstly I'd like to pass on huge compliments to the chef - your food was fantastic! We visited your restaurant recently as a family of four, we have been before but not for a very long time. We shall certainly be back in the not too distant future. We started off with two sharing plates - the mixed tapas and... More
