Berwick-upon-Tweed has a long history of producing food and drink and is an excellent place to taste the area’s specialities today.
Fresh crab and lobster, oysters from the waters off Holy Island, traditionally-smoked kippers and haddock, farm-made cheeses, ice-creams and yogurts, grass-fed beef and lamb, organic eggs, pork and speciality cured meats, varieties of heritage potatoes, bread from a wood-fired oven, home-made jams and preserves are just a selection of our local produce.
At theChain Bridge Honey Farm Visitor Centre you can discover the story of bee-keeping and sample honey from hives set in the fields and hills around the Tweed valley.
See grain being milled at first hand n the restored water-powered Heatherslaw Corn-mill, only a short drive or bus ride from Berwick. Barley has been grown around Berwick for centuries and Tweedmouth is home to Simpsons Malt, the country’s largest family-owned firm of maltsters.
