The Lord Nelson was converted from two cottages around 1800 and was named after the famous admiral after his victory at the Battle of the Nile. The pub has been part of the old settlement of Hythe for over two hundred years.
It has two separate front rooms, each with access to a separate bar and a centre ‘snug’ room called ‘The Poop Deck’ which has panelled wood and glazed screens and a separate door off the hall corridor. This snug shares the bar with the left hand front room. Though there is a large rear extension it does not detract from the original front part of the pub, which is all still quite original and it is on CAMRA’s National Inventory. The rear courtyard beer garden overlooks Hythe promenade with views of Southampton Water.
It is a friendly, lively and popular community pub and serves simple pub meals as well as real ales. As it’s stituated on a pedestrianised street, there isn’t a clear image on StreetView, but it can just be spotted in the background of the linked view.
