About the Pub

Remarkable pub often described as a true country pub located in the heart of Sneinton. Whilst a 'small' pub it is blessed with a number of rooms connecting to a central bar. The secluded rear garden fenced with a high hedge is a must in good weather, very quiet for a suburban area. Hosts the Sneinton Festival on the last weekend in July.

Historic Interest

This former coaching inn was constructed from two seventeenth century cottages and was known for a time as Hornbuckles (Whitworth 2010). Grade II listed building (No. 1270632). The Lord Nelson has a heritage interior rated by CAMRA as being of Regional Importance. A passage from the garden leads to the main bar, small and square, with servery behind. Through an arch on the left is a snug whilst at the rear left is a snug bar with a small counter and separate street entrance. Finally comes a plain room on the right. Most fittings are from a refurbishment in the 1950s ( Cave cellars measure 8m x 4m and are referenced MNU 1081 with currently no BGS ref.]. "Farmhouse and attached outbuildings, now public house. Late C17 and early C18, altered late C19 and C20. Painted brick, possibly concealing timber framing, with brick dressings and pantile and slate roofs. 3 brick gable stacks. Rendered plinth. 2 storeys; 3 x 2 bays. L-plan. South front has to left a single bay block with steep pitched roof and coped gables with a 3-light casement on each floor.
