Recently visited for Sunday lunch, which is always busy so booking is needed. We had the veggie roast which was very good. The staff at The Nelson are excellent, very friendly and helpful and the food is good pub grub.

We all had the lamb roast. The Yorkshire puddings were stone cold. They had clearly made them earlier then left them out. We asked for some warm ones and they did come back warm - but burnt. There was plenty of lamb and roast potatoes....More
