About The Bristol Food Tour
The Bristol Food Tour is a unique walking tour providing you with the opportunity to experience the best of what Bristol's independent food vendors have to offer. We run regular tours on Saturday afternoons suitable for meat eaters & vegetarians, and also run one-off event tours, such as vegan and bespoke & themed tours, too. Our tours include several stop offs for a generous tasting of some top notch food. All food is included in the ticket price. We'll also tell you information about the local area and the stories behind the independent businesses that we visit. Perfect for tourists who are new to the city or for locals wanting to snoop out some new favourite hotspots!
