About us

"For me, the Lord Nelson really is the family business. My father, John Illston, took over the pub 20 years ago and set to work creating a pub to be proud of.

It was built upon the belief that a pub should be a haven; somewhere warm, welcoming and wholesome and where you can unwind in a truly classless environment.

The pubs great reputation suggests this vision was well and truly achieved.

Now that keys have been handed over to David and me, we intend to carry these values forward and will continue to do so as long as the pub remains in our hands.

Weċ ˘rought together our experience of the hospitality industry along with the knowledge of our staff to make the Nelson a pub we are really proud of; a place where locals and holidaymakers mix and everyone is welcome (including the dog!).

We hope you find the pub an inviting environment where you are able to leave the stresses of everyday life outside.

Once you walk through the door your only concerns should be what to eat and what to drink!

We hope to welcome you soon!"
