13 of us rocked up at 12 o’clock on a Saturday and had a brilliant time. The landlady was amazing, chatted away to us, offered us free crisps and entertainment. Cheap, cheerful and chilled. Loved it.

What a find! The lady behind the bar is amazingly friendly. A large group of us arrived and she kept us all entertained, lots of drinks and free crisis. Excellent!

Staff were great but I have to give it one star simply because the real ale had me on the toilet all day the next day! Pity.

Having visited this fine pub many times over the last 3 years on my trips to Berwick i felt that i should say a word of praise for the place. This is indeed a proper pub where drinkers enjoy good beer and plenty of banter...More

You just have to visit the Free Trade is just fantastic as it's never changed inside, it's a proper pub with great atmosphere and fantastic banter. There is a good choice of drinks and it's cheap as well 🍺🍷🥃

Brenda, in her 80s, about to retire, so be quick! Daughter is following on so fear not. Fantastic atmospheric wooden interior, with beautiful, beautiful stained glass. Brenda told about the friendly ghost which haunts the place (I'm not suprised, the pub was built in 1700s)...More

Most fun in Berwick. Missed it out the evening before, didn't think it was my cup of tea. Called in Sunday to friendly staff and customers. Great time! No clique, don't miss out!

Traditional pub with good beer. A group of nine of us who were on a golfing weekend went in on the Friday night, the place was quite busy with a good atmosphere. They have a pool room and we played this for a good part...More

Proper pub. Decor as it should be, with friendly staff. Hadrian Hadrian and Border Beer on hand pull. On way from Rail Station or a walk up the hill from town.
