The town’s pubs and restaurants have an abundance of delicious local products from which they can create mouth-watering menus.

Berwick is a Slow Food town. Slow Food is a network of producers and people who simply love good food.  Food producers are a key part of the slow food movement which is very much about knowing where your food comes from. Berwick Slow Food group was established in 2006 to celebrate the rich food heritage of this historic border town and its thriving food scene today.

On a visit to Berwick you might choose a traditional fish and chip shop selling locally caught cod and haddock. If it’s a sweet treat you’re after, having completed a long day walking, cycling or exploring, we have tea shops and cafes filled to the brim with cakes and delicacies.
