One room with bar to the right. One turned round hand pump - rest keg. Don't drop a coin at the bar - you'll never find it!

Will Larter left this review about Oliver's Pub & Kitchen

A modern bar with exposed RSJs, recycled timber from pallets and scaffolding boards, and corrugated aluminium. There's a fashionably exposed kitchen and the bar top is a mass of silver: mostly the keg fonts but also two stainless steel hand pumps. These were offering Batemans XB and XXXB. Despite the barman pouring off two whole pints before serving me, the XXXB was pretty poor. And how do they make any profit from a barrel with that amount of beer in the pipe to pour away?)

The building had been empty for about 10 years and almost derelict when it was revived by the present owner (Oliver Something, or Mr Oliver?). I took my beer to an area to one side where two battered sofas surround a tiny fireplace, in which was stood a very small paraffin stove. It was interesting to see some original tiling on the floors - where that was not possible to preserve they have filled the gaps with 2p coins encased in a plastic resin.

Alan Winfield left this review about The Lord Nelson

The Lord Nelson is situated on Eastwoods main shopping street.
When i first went in this pub it had two rooms with a fairly basic bar and a more comfortable lounge,the pub used to be an Ansells tied house and there were no real ales on here,i had a drink of keg Ansells bitter and this was a very poor drink.
In more recent years this pub has catered for Eastwoods younger drinkers.
