Our historic Norfolk pub up for prestigious award 

The former watering hole of Admiral Lord Nelson – which happens to be a Woodforde’s pub – has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.  

The Lord Nelson in Burnham Thorpe is in the running to be named the county’s Best Destination Pub in the Muddy Awards 2023, hosted by Muddy Stilettos. 

The 17th century pub is rich in history and offers a range of our customers’ favourite beers while serving up some of the county’s best pies and seafood.  

Jessika Cross, General Manager and Head Chef, said: “It’s fantastic The Lord Nelson has been recognised in the Muddy Awards.  

“Norfolk is home to some exceptional pubs, so the fact we’re among the finalists is testament to the quality of The Lord Nelson. 

“Whether it’s our rich history or our delicious beer and food, we certainly have something for everyone. It would mean the world to win, so please vote if you can.” 

Built in 1637, the pub was renamed The Lord Nelson in 1798 in honour of the victory at the Battle of the Nile.  

The pub’s look and feel has been preserved since it became part of the Woodforde’s family in 2021 –and even includes wooden settles where the Admiral once sat. 

Visitors can also see a range of memorabilia related to Norfolk’s greatest son while enjoying a pint of our bitter named after Nelson himself.  

Joe Parks, our CEO, said: “The shortlist is great news for The Lord Nelson, which is a true celebration of Norfolk’s rich history. 

“Norfolk is the home of great beer and great pubs, and Woodforde’s Brewery is incredibly proud one of our pubs is up for a Muddy Award.”
