Recently under new management and the family have done a fine job indeed. A wide selection of snacks and draught beer (Doom Bar was the best when I visited). Also they had a shellfish kiosk served out of a side window making the establishment genuinely Cockney indeed! Mixed and friendly crowd. Music selection was enjoyable enough (Cool for Cats by Squeeze, Madness, other pub favourites). I shall return soon for sure!

2nd visit to the Nelson on Friday night.

It's been over 7 months since my last visit and the pub has had a mini face lift and has smartened itself up.

Food was being eaten on my arrival, it looked okay.

3 ales on the pumps now, my 2 pints of Doombar were very good.

Still plenty of locals in the pub but they are fine and in no way spoil a visit to this pub.

The area is rough around the edges but the people are honest and fair.

Get off the DLR at Island Gardens and experience it for yourself.

My first ever visit to the Lord Nelson last Friday night.

After several beers in The George, myself and 2 work colleagues moved on the Nelson not knowing what to expect.

The pub is large with the bar to your right as you enter. A Ska dj was on “OLAS BOSS” so the pub was pretty full, most seemed local & to know each other.

No real ale on hand pull, the only hand pull they had was turned round. My pint of Smooth was fine and the barman was a very pleasant chap.

Garden / Smoking area out the back, fairly non-descript décor but a pleasant enough pub.

It’s close to work so I may return

The Pub had the outside redecorated October 2009. There are now 3 Real Ales available as well as a good selection of beers, wines & spirits. There are some great seasonal specials on at the moments, and the fortnightly Quiz is ever popular. A pool competition is being started on Sunday nights. The lighting has also been changed.

Didn't like this place at all. Beer was vinegary and served by a surly barman.
