Costa and Travelines is located in the former ticket office, with a new external entrance among the changes.

As part of an internal revamp at the station by London North Eastern Railway, a sleek new ticket office has also been created in the café’s former position.

Planning permission and listed building consent for the work at the Grade II-listed station was approved by Northumberland County Council earlier this year, although Berwick Town Council has expressed concerns about the colour scheme of a new container unit in the service yard.

Coun Catherine Seymour, member for Berwick North on Northumberland County Council, said: “It was a pleasure walking into the new station coffee shop.

“This is an inviting and a comfortable place with plenty of room to sit down and rest for travellers coming to Berwick and enjoy a coffee and refreshments at our station.”
