The perfect spot to pop in for a pint of in-house brewed beer. Sydney's oldest pub is a welcoming place to catch up with friends or just try some new beers! Staff are really nice and most importantly the beers are delicious!

We first went to the bar on the ground floor, it was like walking into a 1800's bar. Old beams, chalk board signs, then we decided to have dinner and went upstairs. Completely refurbished, very modern decor. We had very good food with great service.

Hi there, The Lord Nelson is a pub that serves great beer and what looked like good food as well. We were not interested in clubs and nightlife, so cannot help you with that, sorry
