Unfortunately I cannot say that I enjoyed my visit to the trader last night. Our table was booked for 7pm While waiting I ordered a glass of house wine to be told they had run out - on a Friday before the weekend?? The meal was served after 8 pm. My fish was over cooked and very dry. I was offered mushy peas which I ordered but was served garden peas. Of my friends' orders - 1 returned her steak because she could not cut it; nor was she asked how she wanted it cooked; Ice cream tasted of sugar and milk - supposedly clotted cream ice cream but it was very white in colour; chocolate fudge cake was very sweet - and so on. Drinks I thought were not good value and when a friend asked for house wine she was served it !!! The waitresses were very polite and very rushed. The only people who said their main course was ok had chicken. I think The meals were cheap £7.99 for 2 courses so I suppose we got what we paid for, but it is possible to eat good at reasonable prices. Please re think your menus trader !!

Recently renovated with a new owner, trader is once again becoming a popular venue with modern décor, friendly staff and, more importantly, good innovative chefs providing tasty food; plus, of course, Bateman's traditional ales

A warm and friendly atmosphere, with open fires. In the summer there is a large beer garden to the rear. The food from the Rustic Kitchen is something to beholden. Menu has something for everyone, portions are large, food is delicious and cost prices make it great value for money

I went to this pub on a friend's recommendation for lunch at the weekend. It was a good 'honest' pub. I didn't drink any ales, but I think if you like a good ale or two, you'd appreciate the quality and range here. What I did have was amazing food! The food was delicious and a real suprise. I didn't think a little pub in Beeston would have food like they do. I had a special smoked fish platter which was delicious. Well prepared, presented, tasted great and fresh! it's worth a visit if you're in the area.

My wife and I have eaten here on a number of occasions and the food is reasonably priced and always of a very high quality. The staff are also very courteous and attentive. You may need to book in advance, especially later in the week and at week-ends. Our only less than excellent visit was one Friday when service was a little slow, but the food was still excellent once it arrived.

We have been to trader Hotel Free House for 20 years and have always been delighted: the huge range of real ales, the freshly made & inventive food, using local ingredients, and the very efficient & friendly staff. And now they have introduced drink, food & music festivals with imaginative themes. They deserve their many awards including being a CAMRA member. Highly recommended

A lovely traditional pub with 'cricketers-themed' decor. Original 1930's art deco interior. Fair selection of beers, etc. Just a comfortable place to hang out with elegant style and not too noisy.

If you are looking for a traditional local pub that concentrates on Beer not food then I can recommend the Warncliffe. We have used this pub for several years and find its a real pub for real people, but in spite of this its not a spit and sawdust style pub. You can relax and enjoy a chat in comfort.

After visiting several times to enjoy a drink and the food I have no hesitation in recommending to others. This is a very friendly pub with a selection of well kept beers wines and spirits. First class food is available, from locally produced ingredients. A good selection is available to be eaten in either the pub or restaurant, and all prepared by an excellent chef.
