I've been frequenting The Barrels whenever I've been in Berwick over the past 7 years or so and it remains to be one of the highlights of the town. The selection of ales and spirits is fantastic and the eclectic look and feel as well as the memorable visitors makes it an unmissable visit!

If you like great beer, a trendy & unusual atmosphere, then this is the pub for you. My Husband likes his 'real ale' & the range on offer is amazing . The whole place is surrounded with hundreds of brilliant photos of bygone days, & famous people,, which always starts off a conversation. Would thoroughly recommend this pub.

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.

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.

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.
