We’ve been visiting the lovely pubs in this area for a few years and where its true this is an idyllic pub situated in a beautiful little hamlet –when compared to the other pubs (mostly under new management) located within a mile or so of the Lord Nelson we feel the Nelson is let down by the mediocre food charged at premium prices and most importantly (for us) the ambience that country pubs are suppose to have. The proprietors lack the warmth and hospitality that is offered elsewhere and that is all too apparent when frequenting the pubs around the area. To sum it up, the Lord Nelson in our view is good, but not good enough.
If you liked piped music, television, pub games and terrible food then you will score this place 0/5. Frankly, this beautiful building is a delight, set opposite the Church in one of the most attractive and unknown villages in England.

Not only is the building interesting with its beams, but there are decent pieces of furniture here - it is a great mistake to think that simple buildings cannot carry good contents.

The proportions of food were generous and excellent. More importantly, it is still a pub, with many casual drinkers enjoying pints at the bar while we finished our lunch. There are two rooms that can be used for private functions, one with its own "sitting room" that can be curtained off. The service was excellent and the wines sensibly priced.

This is a rare find. It is a reminder of what all country pubs once were - peaceful, welcoming, log fires and congenial service and company. And on a winter's day, above all, cosy.

Well Done, Mr Landlord. There are few such places left!
