It’s time to discover our rich food heritage

A Taste of Berwick-upon-Tweed

Berwick is now England’s most northerly town, but over the centuries it has been fought over and changed hands between the Scots and the English at least 13 times.  

Today the district’s peaceful, unspoiled landscapes and heritage coastline produce a wide variety of food and drink ranging from crabs, lobsters and oysters to artisan breads baked in a wood-fired oven, farmhouse cheeses and ice-cream to honey from hives set in the fields and hills on either side of the English-Scottish Border.

The town itself is full of reminders of its food-producing heritage - old salmon fishing shiels and ice-houses, herring yards and smokehouses, breweries, granaries and maltings. Within a 30 minute drive you will find picturesque fishing harbours, a traditional smokehouse and Northumberland’s only working water-powered corn-mill.  

Explore these pages and find out about the food and drink produced within 25 km of the mouth of the River Tweed, today and in the past.

We regret that, after much discussion and delay, the operator of the boat trips is unable to offer a service this year.

Mouth of the Tweed apologises for the disappointment caused.
