Sits on the gate of Merton Place, Nelson's home.
Location: 15 Merton High Street, SW19
Description: A nice-looking pub that stands in the site of the main gate to Merton Place, Nelson's (the one-eyed mariner) home and where he lived in a menage-a-trois with Lady Emma and Sir William - he bought the house but wanted them both to live there. This uncoventional relationship saw Nelson as a hero at sea...and a child at home!
