We ate at this restaurant located in the Lord Nelson Hotel for three mornings this week. The buffet was terrible. No one in my family would eat the food.

Just met friends here for brunch today. I normally enjoy the food but today I found the Eggs Benedict to be lacking. There was hardly a spoonful of hollandaise sauce on the eggs to the point I wondered at first if they forgot to add any! The meat and English muffin were very dry. Not disappointing enough to stop coming,... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at the Lord Nelson for our Anniversary and for one of our dinners we chose to eat at the Victory Arms Pub, attached to the lobby of the hotel. My advice to a potential diner who is staying at the hotel is that no matter how convenient or close this restaurant is to... More

We never did get past the apps menu and ended up sharing 4 apps for our meal. All were great especially the shrimp toast. The hot buffet breakfast is a must especially the omelette station.

The Arms is a lovely pub in the Lord Nelson Hotel across for th Public Gardens. They have great service and drinks. I did not try the food but there is great ambiance. They have a small but very sunny patio to sit and watch people coming and going at the Public Gardens. A nice place to stop and have... More
