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 🍺🍷🥃

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.
