Quench your thirst with a drink by the bar, or relish a hearty meal in our Restaurant and choose from an extensive range of wines and beers.

The Honest Lawyer has become a Nelson icon with friendly service, a relaxing atmosphere, excellent food and unique accommodation, making it a perfect stop for locals and visitors alike.
The Honest Lawyer was first opened in 1995, but could easily be mistaken as an English Country Pub. With a stunning view of the Waimea Estuary and the mountains in the distance, our location and establishment are one of a kind.
In the Summer there's plenty of seating outside, a Giant Chess Set, and beautiful grounds with an orchard, and paths winding around the water's edge. The Winter months are a perfect opportunity to relax near the fire, try our Mulled Wine and a hearty meal. Our relaxed atmosphere and stunning surrounds keep the locals and regular visitors coming back.
Inside, there are knick-knacks, historic drawings and memorabilia, and a huge tree in the middle of the bar. Whether you're after a hearty pub meal, a relaxing drink, or somewhere unique to rest your head, we provide it all under one roof. If a Country Pub & Hotel is what you're picturing then you won't be disappointed!
