Charming, 'proper' pub, tucked away in a quiet corner of the Market Sq. Ground floor bar / dining room with a good range of real ales and an attractive, reasonably priced menu. Didn't eat on this occasion, but will certainly be back to try it....More

We dined in the Lord Nelson on our first night in Oakham. It is very reasonably priced, extremely dog friendly and the food and drinks menu were exceptional. Will definitely return and recommend.

The inside of the pub is amazing with lots of different seating areas. Eclectic decor was very interesting. The Roast Chicken sharer for 2 was very tasty and huge. Could've fed 3 people at least. My hubby went for the roast beef which he thoroughly...More

Tried this on a whim. Lovely food at great prices. Nice staff and quick service. The Rose Lemonade is delicious and as is the Lamb Kofta's and Pepperoni Pizza. We were both too full to have a dessert.

The Lord Nelson is a beautiful pub tucked away in the heart of Oakham. As just one of two towns in Rutland, Oakham itself is packed with character. The Lord Nelson fits in perfectly – dating back to the 1500’s the building has been lovingly restored the KNEAD Pubs way.

With charming dining areas throughout the building, you’ll be able to find a cosy spot next to the Aga or enjoy a breath of fresh air in the secluded pub garden. The Lord Nelson is bursting with character, but its relaxed atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for a bite to eat and a chilled out pint.

A centrepiece of the Lord Nelson is the delicious food, fantastic selection of ales and range of wines and other beverages. Here at the Lord Nelson we’re passionate about serving up the perfect pint, along with a mouthwatering meal that combines traditional pub grub with a modern twist.

Our well-known, stonebaked (and scrumptious) KNEAD pizzas are always on the menu, plus a great range of lunch or dinnertime dishes. That’s what makes this pub in Oakham the ideal spot for dinner with family, a bit to eat over a meeting or simply a quick drink with friends.
