Welcome to The Lord Nelson at Winthorpe

The Lord Nelson at Winthorpe is a beautiful traditional English country pub, serving excellent food and a range of traditional ales, beer and cider. Set in the picturesque village of Winthorpe near Newark on the Nottinghamshire/ Lincolnshire border, and ideally situated for Newark Showground, the pub has a firmly established reputation. The bar has the feel of an old country house with squashy sofas, roaring fires, wooden floors and low beams.

Originally built in 1800s, the pub is a Grade II listed building, bordered by a beck and set in idyllic countryside. The Nelson has a large walled beer-garden, outdoor BBQ, two snugs, a large bar and a newly refurbished restaurant with doors opening out on to our garden. For business events, celebrations and functions, our opulent Private Dining room seats up to 12, and we host weddings and christenings. Whether it's a beer and a burger in the bar, chilling on a leather sofa in our snug with your laptop, free wifi and a glass of wine, or a special dinner celebration, we are delighted to serve you.

The new Directors reopened the pub on 1st July 2016 and you can read about their journey in Bringing the Nelson Back to Life
