“I believe that the refurbishment has enhanced the customer experience and Abbie’s team is doing a phenomenal job at keeping up the standards of the pub and of our local community. I had a wonderful time at The Lord Nelson, and I look forward to my next visit.”

Customers can also look forward to a wide range of live music and entertainment taking place at the venue as part of the improvements.
