Our Stokes Croft Tour route is a true celebration of our favourite independents in Bristol and currently takes place down Cheltenham Road and through the bustling hub of Stokes Croft.
Our South of the River tour also features a range of excellent independents in Bristol, and includes stop-offs in the new Wapping Wharf development and explores some great food and drink venues South of the River in Southville.
Our East to West tour visits the Old market area, and the city centre. We'll lead you through St Nicholas Market and take you to some off beat choices in the heart of Bristol for a yummy variety of foods.
Keep your eyes peeled on our social media portals and the Contact & Book page as every now and then we organise one off event tours. We are also more than happy to organise a bespoke or private tour with you for a special occasion or corporate event.
Where do we meet and where do we go?
Whichever tour you choose to book on, the meeting place will be revealed via email in the week before your tour. If you have any questions about your tour, just email us.
We like to keep the places we visit a surprise, but you can get an idea of the kind of food available on the tours by following us on Instagram and Twitter, and liking us on Facebook.
Who are your tour guides?
We have a fantastic little team of tour guides who are buzzing to share their expert knowledge and insider info with you.
That's really up to you. If you feel they've led a great tour and you want to tip, they'll graciously accept and they get to keep every penny - they've earned it! Also, if you've enjoyed your tour please take a minute to write a review for us on TripAdvisor - it really helps us spread the word about our tours.
Can you cater to my dietary requirement?
All of our tours are suitable for those who eat meat and those who choose not to, unless you are booking on a themed tour. We can also make arrangements for most dietary requirements. Some are trickier than others, and because we want to ensure that you get the most out of your experience with us, it's important to let us know when you book if you have any restrictions. Just drop us an email if you have a query.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Your place includes all the food and drink samples offered on the tour. Most of the places we visit provide tap water, but you might want to bring a bottle of your own, if you like.
Sometimes people want to buy extra drinks on the tour - a delicious coffee or a pint from the pub, or even a cocktail if the mood takes you - and all are cool with us and make the places we visit happy too! We might also visit places with shops on the tour so please feel free to browse and buy things if you fancy. This is a long-winded way of saying bring money!
It's worth noting our fair city doesn't always deliver fair weather so if it's looking rainy or cold on the day, do dress appropriately as we will be outside a lot of the time, walking from place to place or sampling food outside an interesting landmark.
Do you cancel tours if the weather is bad?
We run tours come rain or shine, so dress for the day! We have only ever cancelled one tour due to heavy snow as it would have been dangerous to run it. In such extreme cases we would give you as much notice as possible and would happily refund/rebook your place.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
We certainly do! These are £50 each, with a £2.50 postage and packaging fee. They are valid for six months from date of purchase. We also do E-Vouchers which are just £50, to save on P&P.
What if I can't come/Do you do refunds?
We cannot give refunds, and we require you to pay in full to secure your place on the tour as they sell out very quickly. If you're unable to attend for any reason, contact us via email as soon as possible and we'll get back to you. We may be able to reschedule your booking if you let us know no less than one month before your booked tour. Email us to enquire.
Do you have a minimum/maximum number of people on the tours?
The minimum group size for a public tour is 4 people. The maximum group size for a public tour is 8 people. We have a few reasons for limiting our tours:
Most importantly, we like to keep the groups relatively small so you all get to have an intimate experience on the tour. We believe we're unique in this way as everyone can relax and chat while sharing delicious food and drink. We find it often feels like we're leaving a group of friends behind at the end of a tour! Logistically, a lot of the places we visit are small or incredibly popular which means a group of 8 (plus a tour guide) takes up quite a lot of space! However, if you'd like to organise a private tour for less than 4 or more than 8 people, just get in touch and we can create something bespoke for you.
Where would you recommend parking?
We'll let you know the meeting point in the week before your tour. All of our tours are in fairly central areas of Bristol. On-street parking is an option, but it can be limited, and you need to be aware of residential parking restrictions. There are multiple large car parks in the centre of Bristol, and good bus and train links. If you are flying into Bristol Airport, we recommend checking out Parkhero! Otherwise, don't hesitate to email us and we will offer suggestions as best we can!
