Description: We took over Foxtons on 1st December 2012! The turnaround is now complete. We invested in completely new toilets, redecorated the interior spaces, opened a new Foxtons yard garden to the rear, a real suntrap! We replaced the awful charity shop seating, invested in new kitchen stuff (which you cannot see!) introduced Bose sound driven by iTunes and improved the food and smartened the service up. Our general manager is well known locally and together we have employed two new chefs and kitchen staff. We introduced a comprehensive wine list and Proseccos and Champagnes. Wines from Majestic amongst others and we have 35+ to choose from Our new winter menus offer something for all from belly pork to 21 day aged steaks from local farms. Or, try our shellfish and fish from local suppliers. Soup and salads, huge gourmet burgers. Lunch and dinner service 7 days a week coupled with a variety of beers and lagers like Belhaven Best, Peroni, Guinness and a weekly guest cask ale Like Timothy Taylor's Landlord. So we hope you can come and see us soon and enjoy! Foxtons welcomes children and we have a childrens' menu too. We strongly recommend that you book for Thursday, Friday & Saturday dinner and Sunday lunches as we are often fully booked. We are open for food 7 days a week. Sunday lunch served noon to 6.30pm every Sunday

Well done to the new owners of Foxtons,far better in every sense of the word.
Brilliant fresh food,great prices.
Service was bit scatty at times,we had a number of different servers,not sure if they knew who was covering what table that is my only criticism.

Looks better and feels much friendlier.

Many thanks indeed for your feedback and constructutive criticism on the service. We are actively working to improve our table service and this has not been helped by the failure of our EPOS till system last week. That will be replaced this week hopefully. So next time we hope that the service is a bit more organised!

Like many good restaurants in Berwick we are proud to serve locally grown and sourced meats, sea food and produce. North Northumberland is blessed with amazing farm land and the North Sea, then of course we have three talented and hard working chefs to cook it to perfection.

I hope that you return to Foxtons Wine Bar and Restaurant soon and try our menu again and we look forward to your comments. We are running a competition from this week to win a free meal for two plus fizz for one lucky couple who submit a TripAdvisor review (and provide their email to enter the draw), so hopefully you will enter that too! This prize is worth £80!

Was out for a walk and walked past foxtons wine bar. Looked a very busy place, so we decided to try after looking at the menu outside. Staff were very attentive, and amazing with my two children.
Food was of great value, I very much enjoyed my roast beef, gravy could of been a little better.

Overall a very happy place and great experience. Will be returning on our annual trip to Berwick.

Thanks for taking time to give us some feedback. We offer free meals for under ten year olds on a Sunday and we know that that helps mums and dads keep the cost of having a Sunday lunchtime treat down. When you come back next year I am sure you will enjoy the gravy more as our head chef has spotted that criticism!

Once again many thanks for your custom and your comments.

My wife and our friend run The Cross Inn, in Paxton, and as we close on a Monday we like to get into town to have a bite of lunch and a drink to relax. I work on a busy holiday park also and get Monday afternoon and Tuesday off. So time together is important. Most weeks we find ourselves going to Foxtons for Lunch. Creatures of habit we love to sit in the window on the platform watching the world go by.

As we are are in the trade we are very aware of service and standards. I have to say that the manager whose name I don't know, I am sorry (but will find out next week) , always greets you with a smile and a hello and I find her very professional and welcoming. Also as we have been coming in a bit now, its nice she remembers us and most importantly what wine I like to drink. which to me, being from the service industry I find refreshing. (as well as the wine)

The other girl, also that works Monday with the manager (with the blonde hair) I also find very good and friendly, she always asks how we are doing at The Cross, and again remembers what you like to drink and where you like to sit. Top marks also to her (again, next week we will ask your name). Little things like this go a long way with a customer.

As a long time Foxtons customer I now enjoy going again, and as we have not done dinner yet and only Lunch, I recommend the Steak Sandwich and any of the light bites. We will come along for dinner though if we ever get the time as I am sure it will be just as nice.

If you want a nice place in town to relax, have a great glass of wine and some good value for money food then we recommend Foxtons.

Also we welcome the owners and staff of Foxtons to The Cross in Paxton anytime and we will look after you as you look after us. Have a great year guys. Joanna & Eddy Coulson.

Berwick itself felt a little run down as a city after travelling around the countryside in England - Foxton, however, was a special find. Service was excellent - we were promptly seated, attentive staff, friendly and open offer to check that we were happy with our meal etc.

Food - AMAZING quality for the price we paid. We had the prawn starters which was had a beautifully fresh salad and juicy prawns, followed by very well made salmon, fantastic texture and really good blend of taste. Our friends had the halloumi with sweet potato wedges (tasty wedges!) and the pork fillet - fairly generous portions on mains, just perfect starter size. Will definitely stop over again if we're in the area.

Dear Anita, many thanks for your lovely comments. As you may have seen in our menus all our seafood is caught locally and supplied by Collins of Eyemouth. The pork was reared locally too, in Lowick, near Berwick and supplied by RG Foremans the local butchers.

Our chefs love working with such quality ingredients as it allows their skill to shine. Fresh produce, good skilled cooking equals fabulous tasty food.

As new owners of the business we want to make sure as many people read about our restuarant and TripAdvisor comments are a great way to achieve that. We always welcome constructive criticism and listen carefully to feedback, complaints or compliments. This is how we can continue to improve our menus and services.

So we do hope you return and try our menu again and we look forward to your comments. We are running a competition from this week to win a free meal for two plus fizz for one lucky couple who submit a TripAdvisor review (and provide their email to enter the draw), so hopefully you will enter that too if you make it back this way. This prize is worth £80!

We are very pleased to hear that you discovered Berwick and of course Foxtons. We are even more pleased with your comments and feedback, this is very kind of you to take the time to review our food.

It is especially pleasing to get feedback on good service whcih we are working to improve. As new owners of the business we are seeing a big increase in visitor numbers to Berwick, which is great for our amazing historic town and district, but we need to learn more about their tastes and what their feedback is. So it is most helpful that people mention specific dishes that they enjoyed (or not).

Eve is very pleased that you mentioned her personally as this gives a real boost to anyone and helps them deliver the same or improved service to our customers.

Every restraurant needs feedback and yours was most helpful. Meanwhile I do hope you return and try our menu again and we look forward to your comments.

We are running a FREE competition - you can win a free meal for two plus fizz for one lucky couple who submit a TripAdvisor review (and provide their email to enter the draw), so hopefully you will enter that too! This prize is worth £80!

So visit Foxtons, have a meal and then provide a comment to TripAdvisor, provide us the email address you would like to receive the prize at and you are automatically entered into the competition.
