The Honest Lawyer Country Pub is exactly that a country Pub. We really enjoyed our stay and will certainly stay there again .Very welcoming staff, smiles everywhere ,lovely warm and spacious room , excellent en-suite. We were able to sit outside beside the estuary for a glass of Pinot Gris then venture inside for dinner once the sun had gone down. The seafood chowder was the best we've had. The Honest Lawyer is one of those places everything's there and you make it work for you. Its not 5 star and it does not claim to be .Its a country pub with a flair and ambience all of its own . There's heaps of parking at the door.We ate well ,had a couple of wines and slept very well.

Great location and ideal spot in summer with the large outdoor area. Would like to see fresh fish on the menu more often since it is Nelson!
