The Honest Lawyer

Nelson’s Country Pub and Hotel situated on the Monaco Peninsula. The Honest Lawyer was first opened in 1995 and has become a Nelson icon.  Styled as an English Country Pub & Hotel with friendly service, a relaxing atmosphere, excellent food and unique accommodation it’s a perfect stop for locals and visitors alike.

With a stunning view of the Waimea Estuary and the mountains in the distance, our location and establishment are one of a kind. 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!  In 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.
