Upper West St

About Us

We are a freshly opened and family run café / bistro tucked away down a quaint cobbled side street in the centre of the historic town of Berwick upon Tweed. Upper West St offers informal dining in a modern and rustic environment.

Choose from either comfortable sofas to relax on, or bar stool if you just fancy popping in for a drink. We also have an enclosed patio to the rear where you can catch some sunshine.

Our Food

Here at Upper West St we offer an ever-changing menu with fresh ingredients sourced locally and menu options ranging from a simple open topped Danish-style sandwich, to a hearty three course meal.

We also offer a great choice of L’ Art du Vin to complement your food.

Our Menu

Everything we offer has been inspired by what we like to eat & love to cook ourselves, served in a relaxed atmosphere. All our produce is locally sourced from suppliers who deliver to us on a daily basis meaning your meal is as fresh as can be.

Our Menu


We can seat up to 50 guests for a private gathering, whatever your event may be. Please contact us directly and we will happily cater to suit your needs regarding menus & budget. A variety of seating options are available; from the more relaxed and ambiently lit low-level sofas to more formal dining.

We aim to cater for everyone and our dedicated team will ensure this.

Gin Tasting Event

Gin-lovers in Berwick your moment has come!

You’ll start by creating your own ‘perfect serve’ G&T with your own choice of garnish – then we will sample five more gins from our selection of 100 gins from Scotland, the rest of the UK, Europe and the US. We will nose botanicals to match each of the gins – all with different flavour profiles – and you might find you prefer fruity, savoury, green or grainy gin! At the end, we will get you to tell us which ones you like best and give you your own personal gin report with recommendations for gins best suited to you.

Contact Upper West Street direct for tickets: email info@upperwestst.co.uk or phone 01289 331711.

Ticket price £30. Price includes six samples of gin outlined above, your own personal gin report, and sharing boards with tasty bites at the end of the night.
