What about the beer?

Its a pub, not a restaurant!

I assume as Everards bought it that most of what's on offer will be Everards?

 

EDIT:

Actually, now I'm wondering if I'm remembering wrongly which brewery bought it?

Has it changed much, decor and atmosphere wise? It’s one of our favourite pubs, especially in the winter months when the fires roaring. Often quiet over winter and very snug.

Went last Wednesday the day before they started food and all the hand pulled was independents. Had a pint of Titanic. Expect tiger will be on by now.

Titanic is not bad, but it's pretending to be Guinness, which it isn't. I mentioned in another thread that I went into the Anchor at Hartshill the other day, an Everards Pub. No draught beer on. Food was good. Co run by an ex RN cook.

If you are in the area and like your real ales another Everard's pub that comes highly recommended is The Seven Stars in Rugby. It normally has up to 12 real ales on and a couple of real ciders - Oakham JHB and either Tiger or Old Original are usually available together with a number of regional real ales. It has won Rugby CAMRA pub of the year for the last few years. It doesn't do hot food except on Wednesday evenings which is Pie and a Pint night, but if you are lucky you may be able to get one the landlord's excellent home made scotch eggs. They go pretty quickly!

 

It's just over a mile's walk from the Brownsover Road moorings via the Tesco's Car Park and the footpath over the railway.

Does anyone know if the Nelson still allows dogs inside, we are going to go see what is like tomorrow?  The everards website points to the old web site from when the pub was privately owned, which is a bit bizarre, so there is no information on it at all.

Nice idea!  One small suggestion: it may be best to choose a Chef who fancies himself as a bit of a petrol head rather than a petrol head who fancies himself as a chef. Or maybe just fancies himself... :)

Yes still dog friendly.  New tenants have a dog of their own.

Thanks!

At the Nelson at the moment and other than the beers, nothing seems to have changed, well I think they have put new doors on the toilets if that counts.

 

Very dog friendly, treats and water supplied, and lots of cooing over the dog.

 

Just realised they have wifi, I don't think they did before
