Welcome to the Nelson Inn
The Inn was built around 1776 and remained as a private house until early in the 19th century. For much of it’s early years the pub used to be more or less a farm with a sack over the door where locals came in for a drink. We had thought, being so landlocked, that it was a bit odd having such a nautical name, but we are assured that it received it’s name ‘when Nelson‘s great victory at Trafalgar thrilled the whole country’ – that would have been around 1805, so who are we to mess about with it now!
We plan to sensitively restore and redecorate the pub over the summer months, with the intention of opening our doors in the Autumn. If you would like to keep up to speed with our developments, Like us on Facebook, or subscribe to our mailing list below and we will send you the odd update. By subscribing to our mailing list, once we are open, you will be entered into our monthly competition to win a meal to the value of £50.

Being foodies at heart, our menu, is something of an eclectic mix, striking a balance of hearty pub classics, complemented by more exotic influences from around the world. It changes regularly and reflects the seasons but always offers a mix of traditional British dishes alongside something a little different.
We're currently working on our opening menu with the chef team but to whet your appetite, click on the link below:
With the help of the AllTrails App, we are planning to create a circular walk from the pub and through the surrounding area, to help you work up that thirst/appetite. You will be able to view the walk details via a number of ways (varying levels of tech savviness required -Ed)
