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 occasionally hosts live music on a Friday or Saturday night and charity quizzes on a Sunday evening. Locals are very much involved in charity fund-raising events organised from time to time.
Children of all ages are very welcome in the restaurant however we do ask that they are supervised at all times and remain at your table whenever possible. Baby changing facilities are provided. In the summer moths children can enjoy the 'Life's a Beach' play area and mini football pitch.
You're likely to be rubbing shoulders with Friendly locals and walkers enjoying the nearby River Trent or cyclists taking advantage of the flat roads around and about. Although the bar area isn't huge it sits in a central position in the pub so you'll most likely always find some elbow room.
In the summer months crowds spill out into the extensive garden with outdoor seating. Planters full of herbs add to the fragrant atmosphere complimented by the lovely smell of the pizza kitchen at full tilt!
Local and National hand-pulled ales sit alongside continental lagers, ciders and a wide range of spirits and liqueurs with cocktails also available. BT Sport draws in the crowds for big games but you'll usually be able to find a quiet corner. It's a great stop-off point for a cup of tea or coffee if you're out and about enjoying the local countryside.
Dean is the big bloke with the big smile that will greet you behind the bar - he's the general manager, he's been there right from the start and has been with Moleface Pub Co. for five years. Head Chef Andrew Goodburn looks after all things culinary and oversees the work of the eight other chefs.
The area around Burton Joyce is very popular with walkers and cyclists. The Nelson is a stone's throw from the river trent and a path leads right by the pub and down to the river.
