About the Pub

Beautifully refurbished side street local a few minutes walk from Tonbridge station featuring an always interesting selection of cask ales, real ciders and keg beers. Formerly a failing Shepherd Neame house, the Nelson re-opened in May 2018 and has been rejuvinated under the stewardship of multi award-winning owners, Matt and Emma. The pub's interior has a nautical theme as evidenced by the choice of the Nelson Saloon, Trafalgar Snug, Hardy's Public Bar and Victory Sports Bar. Spacious and comfortable, the decorations include a ship's wheel, naval brasses, a Nelson painting, a barometer and a ship in a bottle along with much breweriana. The sports fan is well served with televisions and a drop-down screen for the bigger sporting occasions. The cask beers offer a range of styles and beer rarely seen in the area, and are supplemented by 10 keg taps.Real Kentish cider is served from Chiddingstone, Double Vision, Turners, Dudda's Tun & others.

Meals are served from opening time until late with main meal offers during the week Sunday roasts are served until 4pm after which the pub reverts to its normal menu.
