    From the moment we arrived the staff were very welcomimg and made us feel comfortable. Service was very prompt and our meals arrived shortly after we ordered. Meals were very tasty and the drinks were icy cold.

    We were excited for the meal as the aromas were great and atmosphere and staff welcoming. However we believe my steak was given to the table beside us and taken by wait staff after the patrons had tasted chips from plate. A few minutes later it was delivered to us but our other main was another 5 minutes. The wait staff upon asking advised that they wouldn’t do that but the meal was lukewarm and very disappointed

    Ash provided excellent table service. The mussels are to die for. Great food, clean decor, nice and quiet in the Parlour room. Would definitely dine here again.

    My eye filet with blue cheese sauce was excellent and my husbands chicken scallopini w creamy mushroom & caper sauce was delicious! If you go for a dessert highly recommend the traditional sticky fig pudding even 2 in the last 2 weekends and we will be back ! Thanks ????

    We really enjoyed our meal at the Nelson. The sticky fig pudding was the best desert we ever had! The pub itself is quite boring looking, no atmosphere really. The staff were all lovely..thank you ????

    Fantastic experience. Can’t remember going somewhere with such great service and food. The entree chips were to die for. Steak cooked to perfection. Can’t wait to go back.

    It was our first time there and it was such great atmosphere. The customer service ladies were friendly, approachable and always had a ready willingness to help. My bad I missed to ask for our waitress’s name but she had long platinum blond hair and a beautiful inviting smile. Thank you for wonderful contribution to our first Geelong visit. Would recommend to anyone!

    Food was WAY overpriced and did not match in quality. Very disappointed how expensive our meals were, and it was very average food! I would not go back or recommend anyone to go there, infact i would warn ppl to stay away!

About the restaurant

Would you like some history with that? We all love a history lesson, especially when it´s served with some hearty pub grub and a brew. This Geelong pub takes its name from a famous English naval commander who fought against Napoleon in the 1800s. Pretty cool huh? The sight was originally home to one of Geelong´s first hotels back in 1849, but was rebuild in the twenties when they gave it a snazzy art deco facade. Today, the formidable building has been renovated to look like it did back in the roaring twenties with the inside taking you even further back in time to a Victorian manor. The Lord Nelson certainly looks a treat, and with award-winning goodies on offer, the dining experience is an all-rounder. Come in for some typical pub food while enjoying a beer. Maybe even the pub´s own Old Admiral beer, brewed in Australian´s oldest pub brewery in Sydney. The Lord Nelson Hotel is not just a pretty sight - it´s a site with delicious bites. Best dish: crumbed pork cutlet
