Review on The Lord Nelson
This refurbished and revitalised local boozer aims to bring some deliberate 'shabby chic', retro style and metropolitan food to the leafy village of Burton Joyce. Set up by the team behind Larwood & Voce in West Bridgford, the Lord Nelson is as flexible as they come, offering breakfast and brunch at weekends, an daytime bar menu, family-friendly Sunday lunches and more ambitious restaurant-style evening meals.
Local produce is at the heart of things (an allotment is in the pipeline), and the line-up of daytime stews and bakes, pies, roasts, sarnies and the like gives way to dinner menus featuring Mr Woods' local pigeon and wild mushrooms on toast, slow-cooked blade of Manor Farm beef with roast garlic mash, and grilled hake fillet with chickpea, red pepper and tomato casserole. Desserts are homely offerings like warm plum and almond tart with Blackmore Farm clotted cream, and the bar offers real ales, bespoke cocktails and decent wines to satisfy the drinkers. There's also plenty of seating outside for sunny days.
