The Honest Lawyer has become a Nelson icon with friendly service, a relaxing atmosphere plus excellent food and 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.

We're situated just ten minutes by car from Nelson city centre and five minutes drive from Nelson airport and Richmond. A wonderful base from which to explore the Nelson, New Zealand, region where there is something for everyone to do, regardless of your tastes.

In the Summer there's plenty of seating outside, a Giant Chess Set, and beautiful grounds with an orchard, barn 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!

We also cater for Weddings, Conferences & Functions offering professional, efficient and friendly service.

We have 13 rooms to choose from, each uniquely decorated and designed to suit an indulgent break. All of our rooms have en-suites and facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including free tea and coffee or fruit juice, Sky television, fax machine, internet jack points, hairdryers, ironing facilities and central heating. Port-a-cots and room service are available on request.

The Rose Cottage is situated in an adjacent building and boasts a king-size bed, as well as a sofa bed, in its open plan bedroom and sitting room. It has its own parking, a small front garden and en-suite bathroom. The unit offers privacy and comfort and is perfect for a longer stay.

The Honeymoon Suite is popular for newly married couples or a romantic weekend away. Opulently furnished, the room has a canopied king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom complete with a claw foot bath and large shower.

The Hotel rooms are all furnished to reflect the English character of The Honest Lawyer. Each has a king-size bed, or king single configurations, and en-suite bathroom. Our outside cottage rooms offer private parking and a spa bath, ideal for relaxing after a day exploring the Nelson region.

The restaurant is open for breakfast from 7am. There is a snack menu available throughout the day, as well as lunch and dinner menus. Food is available until 9.30pm.
