Pig Mark 75. The Lord Nelson is a Fuller’s pub and was established by at least 1890, though may have been earlier. The pub was rebuilt in 1927. It is a large, yet cosy, community pub tucked away in the backstreets that offers food and a garden. They have a weekly quiz and regular meat-free menu nights.

Ordered a pint of American Fall and half of Little Victories for £7.15.

Piggy Dave: The Lord Nelson is a Fuller’s pub tucked away in the back streets the other side of the Great West Road that is very popular on Brentford FC match days. A few regulars were here when we arrived and the barmaid gave us a cheery welcome when we walked in. A reasonable selection of Fuller’s beers was on offer and a guest beer, though it was a bit pricy. There was a vegetarian option on the menu, though I didn’t see a vegan main. They do run regular meat-free nights though where you’ll find both on offer. The pub was very spacious with music playing in the background at a nice volume and a restaurant area and garden at the back. There is a very nice feel to this pub and as well as standard tables and chairs they also have comfy sofas with flight cases masquerading as tables. A very welcoming community pub and I would have no qualms in coming back another time.

Piggy Corin: We were welcomed with a cheery ‘Hello’ as we walked through the door, despite the barmaid serving others at the time. There is a pleasant feeling to the place, with several locals chatting or reading newspapers and unobtrusive music playing in the background. Screens are also dotted around, but not showing anything during our visit. This is a Fuller’s pub with a good range of their beers and a guest ale. My half of Little Victories was surprisingly good. There is a large, wooden horseshoe bar with plenty of seating (squashy leather sofas as well as wooden benches) and a separate dining area. This did not strike me as a foodie pub, but menus are placed on tables and the bar advertising fairly standard pie and burger pub fare. Altogether, a comfortable, friendly pub with good beer. Wish it was a bit cheaper, though.
