The Lord Nelson Southwold
A legacy of tradition...


The Nelson as we know it today, was built on the traditional belief that a pub should be a haven, somewhere warm, welcoming and wholesome, a place to unwind in a classless environment.

This began 18 years ago under the guidance of John Illston and is a tradition that we intend to carry forward for as long as the "Nellie" remains in our family.

We hope to see you soon.

David Sanchez & Gemma Illston-Sanchez
