Hidden away down a side street, The Lord Nelson is every inch a very nice traditional pub,It is of course as Rex describes it as it would seem he visited a couple of weeks before me. A very comfortable pub inside,It was quiet on my visit but it was not long after opening time, I would guess It has a strong core of locals using the place. As mentioned before there was just the duo of Youngs beers on offer, Bitter and Special,once cutting edge beers to my mind they now struggle to be also ran's, It would be great if this pub could offer something a bit more interesting but this I guess is unlikely.

This is a Young's pub so we weren't surprised to find Bitter and Special on, but on our midweek afternoon visit they also had Hobgoblin on. I went for the Special, which was on good form. I didn't see a menu, but on a blackboard by the door I saw advertised steak pie or steak and kidney pudding, plus mash and peas. Haute cuisine at its best in my opinion. Prices weren't stated, but I would be very surprised if they weren't reasonable.

This is a most delightful pub. Beautifully looked after, with maritime memorabila wherever you look. I don't need to repeat what reviewers before me have described in some detail - suffice to say that little if anything is changed. When we visited on a midweek mid-afternoon there were only a handful of obvious locals in, which meant we could occupy the the seats at the front by the windows.

It's definitely worth a visit to a well kept and clearly much loved pub. OK, Young's and Hobgoblin wouldn't be everyone's choice of an ale selection, but beautiful pubs like this should be cherished and protected as they are a dying breed.

An enticing backstreet Youngs pub. The L shaped interior retains a lot of old character and is fairly plush - pub carpet, lovely tables with a red inlay, nautical ephemera, model boats, really unusual mint and maroon wallpaper, purple padded banquettes. Star of the show is the fabulous Art Deco-style front window with a stained ‘sunrise’ glass panel. Plenty of bric-a-brac around the place, including a large and unusual collection of novelty salt and pepper pots (donated by regulars who pick them up on holiday). Mention elsewhere of the locals, they are a bunch of characters but we got along fine with them. Three ales on; Youngs Special, Ordinary and Long Man Long Blonde, the latter of which was in very good shape. Overall, it felt like a lovely locals pub and one I'd be happy to call my own if I lived in the area. I sincerely hope there’s an ACV on this one. 8.5
