If you’re looking for a quirky watering hole south of the river that’s easy on the budget – then skip on over to The Lord Nelson. With plentiful bric-a-brac, student discounts and a happy little patio – you’ll feel as though you’ve stumbled into genuine kitsch heaven.
Don’t get too exotic with your drinks order – stick with beers on draught and the wallet-friendly spirit-mixers. And if you’ve arrived on an empty tummy, order yourself one of the beefy burgers. We hear they’re the best kind of hunger stoppers.
For the crowd, expect a young, carefree and pretension-less set. Nare a hipster in sight, just a few chummy pals enjoying their bevvies.
Best Bars tip: The game boards are a big draw here. And with such a friendly atmosphere, we reckon you should try and challenge your neighbours’ tables to a few rounds of Jenga. Don’t do this after too many pints though, you’ll be knocking that tower over faster than you can say, well, JENGA!
