Popped down to Berwick from Edinburgh for some pints in the closest town we're allowed! First couple of pubs we passed were closed, then we spotted The Red Lion. Colourful exterior, with flags and bunting, welcomed us into this good sized bar with three different sections. We were asked whether we had a booking but they happily accommodated us despite not phoning ahead. The staff were ever so friendly and got a good banter with us. Covid guidelines were all followed and enforced, ensuring that people could feel safe whilst still able to enjoy a pint. Just make sure you have a separate booking / table for each different household and follow the rules. They've got a big screen for the football, a jukebox packed with all genres and tastes of music, and a pool table through the back. Lager selection was exactly what you want from a traditional boozer, with Tennents, Carling and Stella. Pretty sure I saw a Guinness tap and they do wee bottles of wine too. Since it's only a 40 minute trip on the train, this will be my new local until the govt dictates otherwise. We'll be back tomorrow 😀.

During this Covid crisis I found that many of the pubs in Berwick require you to book beforehand for a seat. Very hard to get a quick drink. On the way back to our hotel on a rainy night we came across the Red Lion. All the Covid instructions seemed to being adhered to. Staff were attentive. Place is rough and ready but this is a proper pub not a trendy brew bar. Decor particularly the flags on the wall are definitely not everyone’s cup of tea and the language of some of the regulars could offend. But if you want an honest decent pub with good prices and a friendly atmosphere pay this place a visit. We returned the next night and we were almost treated as regulars.

The outside could do with serious and proper refurbishment, the inside was marginally better. There was a rather tipsy and incoherent individual in the bar, not aggressive but not pleasant. On the positive side, the barmaid was very friendly and good fun, but I would only use this pub for a quick pint, not an evening out.
