Thuck Phat left this review about Lord Nelson

The Lord Nelson is off the beaten track but it is definitely worth seeking out. It's a warren of different rooms, many given over to eating including the large restaurant area at the back. There are a couple of cosy bar areas though where you can happily sup without food. There's also a large garden which makes the pub very popular in the summer when they do excellent barbecues with interesting menus.
I only had soup, which was good, but the menu is definitely a cut above the average boozer and there's a focus on local produce.
Beer: Interestingly, the Nelson doesn't have a bar so all the beer is taken straight from the barrel. Abbot and Woodforde's Wherry are standard but over busier periods they offer Nelson's Blood from the Fox Brewery in Heacham which is very good and worth seeking out. It is also always available in bottles.
An interesting boozer which just about deserves it's GBG listing and is worth at least one visit.
