Why the Bristol Food Tour is so brilliant

Last weekend I spent a leisurely few hours with seven fellow foodies walking and eating my way around Bristol. I was on the Bristol Food Tour, run by best friends Alice & Jo.

I’m not going to give away too many secrets but the Bristol Food Tour is designed to show locals and tourists alike the hottest undiscovered indie food gems around the city. I like to think I know a bit about Bristol’s food scene but I visited places I’ve not been to before and learnt a lot of cool stuff along the way!

On our tour (which encompassed Gloucester Road and Stokes Croft) we stopped off at eight venues, both sweet and savoury, tasting everything from ice cream to Japanese gyoza and pizza. By the end of it, I was stuffed!

The girls have recently launched their new south-of-the-river tour and, if you prefer to travel on two wheels, they’ve just teamed up with Cycle the City tours to put on Bristol’s first food culinary cycle tour!

Expect interesting facts and tasty samples at a range of brilliant independent businesses around Bristol. This is a really great activity to do with friends and family and a perfect gift idea, too. I went alone but the group I was with was great fun. I really can’t recommend this experience enough!
