The Old Nelson is housed in an 18th century building, which was once a school. In 1998 the Old Nelson was a Millers Kitchen house, a subsidiary of Greenalls. In that year the pub won a Greenall’s ‘Golden Windmill’ award for the ‘Millers Kitchen best accommodation sales growth’.
The Old Nelson later became part of the Premier Lodge chain, owned by Whitbread. It opened as a Brewers Fayre restaurant after a £350,000 makeover in October 2004.
