The Lord Nelson
Tucked away in Oakham, the beautifully renovated Lord Nelson offers real ale, fine wine, stone-baked pizzas & a menu full of traditional and quirky dishes
Welcome to the Lord Nelson, a Knead pub since 2011 but full of history all the way back to the 1500s. You’ll always be welcome at the Lord Nelson, with an Aga in the fireplace for winter, an idyllic beer garden for summer and plenty of casual dining space for when the weather is, well, just British. With a bit of TLC we’ve kept the originally timber framed building and freshened it up with our own Knead twist: we’ve decked the walls with our signature enamel signs and picked out our favourite bits of history to make sure the Lord Nelson is always packed with character. Our menu has got something to suit every palate, from stone-baked Knead pizzas (including a gluten-free option) through to antipasti and deli focaccia sandwiches. Our team handpicks the ales we have on offer, with at least three guest ales that they think are pretty marvellous. Please note: Our building is very (very!) old, so there are steep staircases and uneven floors. Because of this please accept our apologies that well behaved children are only allowed in the Lord Nelson before 8pm and we cannot permit children in the bar area.
