Lord Nelson situated in Rutland

The Lord Nelson is a beautifully restored traditional English pub and restaurant in the heart of Oakham's historic Market Place.

Formally Nick’s restaurant, this originally timber framed building has been lovingly restored by Michael Thurlby and his team from Stamford. The 5 bedrooms have been stripped back to show many of its original features complimented with Farrow & Ball paint colours. They are now all drinking and eating rooms. The toilets originally downstairs have been moved upstairs to reveal the old kitchen of the house now with an Aga in the fire place and seating once again for informal drinking and eating. The former restaurant area has been tastefully changed into the bar area, keeping the open fireplace and original floorboards of the building.

Fine Range of Real Ales

The Lord Nelson has 5 hand pumps, 2 are dedicated to Adnams Best Bitter and Castle Rock Harvest Pale Ale. The other 3 are for our guest beers. These tend to be from micro breweries the length and breadth of the country, plus a selection of old favourites from the regional and national brewers. they also showcase the seasonal and one-off brews from breweries across the country.

Food of the Highest Quality

The pub specialises in stone baked pizzas, cooked in specially imported Italian ovens, and you choose your own toppings, from the traditional to the slightly quirky! They also offer a selection of antipasto, snacks, main dishes, and daily and seasonal specials, using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. An impressive, and varied wine list, which regularly changes, displays the best of both the old and new world, and compliments both the food and the surroundings.
