“A classic pub experience”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I highly recommend this pub, whether you are just travelling through or staying at this lovely town.
A variety of high quality beers (both local and national) are on tap on regular rotation, and the service is excellent.
As others have already stated: if you are looking for a classic pub experience, then this is definitely the place to go.

Reviewed September 2, 2013

Just wanting to highly recommend this traditional bar in Berwick. Martin the bar man is a great host who has tales to tell whist serving behind the bar. Just proper beer proper bar and proper people. Magic , definitely go this bar if you like old school crossed with quirkiness.

“If you like pubs, this is a must”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a great little pub. It is quite scruffy with a lot of old photos of pop stars and celebrities which are worth seeing, as there are some unusual ones.

The beer selection is excellent, and if you like beer you will not be disappointed.

Friendly staff.

“Proper Beer, Proper People”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

An excellent range of local, non-industrial beer which changes regularly, good atmosphere, and eclectic decor. No loud knobs, WKD, or alcopops. Pork scratchings to test your fillings on. What's not to like?
