The lord nelson inn, the lord nelson pub, the lord nelson restaurant.

Company description
Due to the demands of passing traders from Birmingham to Coventry, the building became a Turnpike providing shelter and pasture for grazing horse. Bread was baked in a bake house which was situated where the Victory Restaurant now stands. Around 1870, Ale was brewed where the Mary Rose Restaurant is now situated. This is when the establishment became known as 'The Lord Nelson Inn'. About this time, coal mines were sunk and the local settlement grew into a mining village. Flowers and Sons Brewery later bought the property and a variety of alterations took place. By 1897, the room now known as the 'Victory Restaurant' was converted into a concert room.
The Sperrin family came to the property in 1974. Extensive renovations and alterations were needed; with their perceptive eyes and a great deal of hard work, the establishment was soon made 'shipshape'. By 1982, the 'Lord Nelson' had also become well known as an eating house. Today it is still run very much as a family business. January 11th 2012 the Sperrin family opened a Brewery at the Lord Nelson called The Sperrin Brewery and their first real ale was named " Band of Brothers". The unanswerable question has always been 'Why is it called the Lord Nelson Inn? There is no confirmed evidence, but it is reputed that maybe Lord Horatio Nelson and Lady Hamilton called here on one of their many journeys around the country.
Sister Pub & Micro Brewery The Lord Nelson Inn is home to a microbrewery that extends the property, known as the Sperrin Brewery, which is a midlands based, award winning brewery that has an ever growing selection of real ales, ciders and lagers. The Lord Nelson Inn also has a sister pub and restaurant, which has built in accommodation. The Blue Boar Inn was built in the 1940's completed during the early part of the Second World War. I
