About our venue

The Lord Nelson is a family friendly pub which welcomes locals, visitors and passers by. We are on the main Wantage to Oxford road just off the A34. Being on a walkers route, known as The Ridgeway, we are always a popular choice for ramblers to drop in. Quality, value for money food is on offer from an extensive Hungry Horse menu and on Sundays we have an excellent roast. With a wide selection of drinks to accompany your meal and a range of speciality coffees to finish off, this is a great choice. To cater for non diners we have a sports bar with TV screens so you can watch the match in a friendly atmosphere. Alternatively you can have a quiet drink and a game of darts. We also have a large beer garden for al fresco dining during the warmer weather. The Lord Nelson always offers excellent service and our staff and regulars looking forward to seeing you soon.
