We strolled up three locks to see what the to see what the Admiral Nelson pub was like now. It had been renovated and re-opened in April, apparently.
The outside looked rather attractive too bedecked in colourful hanging baskets. Bottle chose a cheese sandwich and I had egg mayonnaise. They come with watercress and scrumptious chips for £4.50, very enjoyable. There is another menu for evenings and Sunday roast, although the menu is limited the food is quite different.
The Admiral Nelson’s chickens now occupy the old children’s playground opposite. When I went to see them they all came rushing over to pose for their photograph to be taken. One of these hansom hens laid a tasty fresh egg for my sandwich. We wish the new landlords luck and hope that the pub will make a go of it, as it deserves to.
