Welcome to the Nelson Tavern, Christchurch

The Nelson Tavern has recently undergone a major refurbishment. We are a family and dog friendly gastro-pub that specialises in traditional home cooked fayre accompanied by a wide range of quality real ales all served in an upmarket and warm atmosphere. 

Our ales are that good that we have recently been Cask Marque accredited and we are also very proud to have been awarded a 5 star hygiene rating for both the kitchen and the cellar.

We offer a huge range of fine wines and branded sprits that you can enjoy in our bar whilst taking in some of the great live music that is on offer - we love live music here at the Nelson, if you are a local band or acoustic player drop your details in to the pub and let’s see if you can entertain our locals!

For those sunshine filled days we have a large south facing patio garden with plenty of comfy seating for people to come and sit, chat and relax. Our function room can cater for any occasion – weddings, baby showers or parties – we look forward to helping you put on an event to be remembered.

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for details of our upcoming events. We look forward to welcoming you to the fabulous new-look Nelson
