If you're not into big screen football it's sometimes a frustrating task to have a relaxing weekend pint in Barnet. However, if you're prepared to venture a little off the beaten path, the Lord Nelson is not only usually football free but a visual treat. Tucked away behind an anonymous looking main road, it was quite a surprise to find such a lovely pub, its interior appropriately festooned with anything vaguely nautical or watery - barometers, paintings of ships - even bath taps on the mantelpiece. Two beautiful model boats sit in front of a large stained glass window alongside fresh flowers, whilst a scattering of Tiffany lamps create a warm, glowing atmosphere. There's no sideways glances when you come here (well, apart from the pub's menagerie of dogs and cats) - just relaxed regulars and pleasant service. Along with three or four well-kept ales, you'll find some great food, freshly prepared by the landlady herself. Certainly the best pub in Barnet by a long way, we just wish the welcome from the landlord was a little more friendly, which is the only thing that lets the Lord Nelson down.

Landlord information


There is a small error in the opening text. There is no Landlord at The Lord Nelson, there is a Landlady and there was a grumpy barman but he is here no longer.
