The Nelson Burton Joyce

Tucked away down Chestnut Grove at Burton Joyce, The Nelson is a cozy and amiable, good old fashioned pub with a vibrant atmosphere and a great restaurant. Blending a country feel of wooden floors and terracotta tiles with stylish wall coverings, The Nelson combines a feeling of times gone by with informal modernity. The central bar and separate dining area merge to form a chattering assemblage at busy times as the staff go diligently about their business. Find yourself a comfy nook and take it all in.

The Lord Nelson can be hired for exclusive use for weddings, parties, wakes with award winning buffets available for any occasion.

“We pride ourselves on sourcing only the best local produce, and serving great meals to our loyal customers”
