Rather English - Drink at the Barrels, Berwick-upon-Tweed

A decent little pub in the heart of the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Barrels Ale House is found close to the old Berwick Bridge, which has provided a crossing over the Tweed for centuries, has won various awards for its ales and atmosphere over the years, and prides itself on a good range of drink.
When your author visited on a weeknight in December, the pub was busy with friendly and welcoming people of all ages, and the range of accents on show revealed both the proximity of the Scottish border and the diversity of the Berwick locals. Whilst the music events which are regularly held in the cellar bar of the pub were absent on the evening in question, they sound like great fun, with the self-defining as "world famous".
