About The Admiral Nelson

There can be few establishments as well celebrated as the British country pub, and if you’re in Northamptonshire, then there aren’t many better examples of the genre than The Admiral Nelson in Braunston. They have all the key elements. There is a scenic rural location, on Dark Lane on the outskirts of the village and overlooking the canal, an open log fire to keep you warm as the nights grow longer and a menu filled with British classics. Go for the Cambridgeshire Truckle cheese, English mustard glazed ham with chips and fried eggs or the buffalo burger, with buffalo meat from, believe it or not, Warwickshire. Then there are the pies: seafood, beef brisket, cheese and chicken, lentil and root vegetables or ham hock and leek. You’ll never be stuck for something to choose at The Admiral Nelson: just close one eye to concentrate, point your one working arm at the menu and wait for the food to arrive. Book today.

Clearly a great chef because the meal was delicious. Service was good albeit a little slow when wanting to leave by would definitely return in the future. Thank you

Fabulous friendly pub - the staff couldn't have been nicer. Beautiful location next to the canal. Top notch Sunday lunch - one of the best I've ever had. Will definitely be coming back.

Good food 🥘 good service polite and helpful staff. Arrived early but was not turned away or pushed to buy a drink 🥃 first. Was also made a starter which was not on the menu nothing was to much trouble.
