What can we say? Beers brewed on the premises, good food, good location - The Lord Nelson has it all. From a plate of bread and cheese and a pint of Three Sheets to a full meal, you can get it all here.
The brews produced in-house are excellent, and generally of a 'british' style - big, malty tasting, full-bodied kind of brews. It made me homesick for a while, since one of my regular haunts back in Wales brews similar beers in-house and usually resulted in some brilliant nights out. I'm over that now though! Personaly favourites? Three Sheets, Nelson's Blood, Admiral Pale Ale. note : not every brew is available all the time - they're made in fairly small batches and shuffled regularly.
The brewery was added during the 1980s, so don't kid yourself into thinking it's always been this way! Enjoy it now with the benefit of knowing you wouldn't have had it this good in the 70s!
As food goes, the ploughman's lunch is famous, and the rest of the menu is top quality and not badly priced.
