With charming dining areas throughout, The Lord Nelson in the market square of Oakham is bursting with character and provides a relaxed atmosphere for you to enjoy the perfect pint and mouth-watering meal.

Dating back to the 1500’s, the building has been completely restored and is now a beautiful pub packed full of character, very reflective of its surroundings in the county of Rutland. With a relaxed atmosphere, The Lord Nelson offers you the perfect place to come for a bite to eat or meet with friends for a drink, of which we offer a fantastic selection of ales, wines and spirits. But who can resist our famous stonebaked pizzas, or the great range of lunch or dinnertime dishes on our menu, all using locally sourced ingredients.

If you’re looking for a room for private hire, be it for a business meeting over lunch, a family gathering, a party, wedding or a wake, we have lots of character rooms for you to choose from.
