Some places gain a certain fame for their historic significance, often tied to a particular location or role in shaping a wider cultural history. Berwick upon Tweed would be one of those places. As the northernmost town in Northumberland, and England, and situated just over 2 miles from the Scottish border, history here has always been inextricable linked to the history of the two great nations.
Today, that history is written throughout the town in some of the most famous sights and landmarks and it is a setting which forms a classic backdrop to many contemporary leisure activities, not least of which is to explore the dining opportunities in the numerous high quality Berwick upon Tweed restaurants.
The dramatic Northumberland coastline plays host to many notable visitor destinations and while Berwick is perhaps the best known, it shares with others a ready supply of fresh fish and seafood which finds its way into the kitchens of some excellent seafood restaurants to explore in Berwick.
That classic fish and chips by the sea is very much a part of this coastal culinary experience, but there are also some fine dining opportunities to explore and enjoy the finest fresh catches of the day. Explore Berwick restaurants and you'll find that fine dining is not limited to seafood of course and in addition to some very high quality restaurants in the town, perfectly suited for combining fine dining with fine wine and good company, there are out of town hotspots which make a drive in the country worthwhile whatever the weather.
Classic country inns are particularly suited to making any opportunity for dining out a special occasion, and there are great gastropubs which offer a rather more whole and hearty approach to dining yet still making the most of those bountiful fresh local ingredients.
Add to this a gastronomic tour of the world via Italian bistro cuisine to Indian and Chinese favourites and it is easy to see why eating out in Berwick upon Tweed brings a modern twist to an historic landscape.
