About

Artisanal Food and Drink Tours

There’s a British Food Revolution happening and Savouring Bath invites you to taste it, right here in Bath!  Join your host, Jennifer Dugdale, as we discover this top UK foodie destination, while strolling through its elegant 18th century streets and alleyways, learning history along the way.  From ancient pubs to artisanal coffees, breweries to bread, and farmers markets to falafels, residents and visitors, alike, will discover the top food hot spots of this UNESCO World Heritage city.  All tastings are included, along with plenty of dining, drinking and shopping tips.

 

A Choice of Three Tours

Three distinct food and drink adventures await you!

 

1. FOOD HEROES OF BATH

Wednesdays & Fridays, 9:30am – 12:30pm

Nowhere in the world but in Bath, can you stroll the streets of 18th century Britain frozen in time, while encountering the thoroughly modern tastes of a contemporary food destination.  Bath has established itself as one of the leading lights on the British food scene and on this tour, we will experience, first-hand, the tastes created by the city’s innovative food professionals.   Being in such a legendary city, we will also enjoy samples of the infamous food and drink specialities that have left their mark on Bath over time.

Our first stop introduces us to the British Food Revolution that is currently sweeping this country, and with its origins 350 years ago.  Having tasted Bath’s famous spring water, the morning picks up pace and we move into the historic streets, making several tasting stops along the way.  We will learn how a Frenchman is trying to change modern bread consumption throughout Britain, how Cheddar cheese survived WW2, what seasonality has to do with coffee and much more.  In addition to sampling these flavours, our stroll includes tastes of single estate tea, Asian snacks, authentic Indian street food and international craft ales matched with local farmhouse cheese. 

Having savoured all the best flavours on this tour, you will be clear that, while the city might resemble a historic movie set, Bath’s creative “Food Heroes” are working on the cutting edge of the modern British Food Revolution.

 

2.  LOCAL FLAVOURS

Saturdays, 9:30am – 12:30am

Enjoy Bath like a local on this Saturday morning Foodies tour of a thriving neighbourhood.  We will meet in front of the Theatre Royal and learn a bit of Bath history before heading off to our first artisanal food stop to taste a traditional sweet “bun”.  These buns are infamous; over 1 million were sold at the 1851 Great Exhibition in London and your taste buds will find out why!  We will then carry on to a charming square, immersing ourselves in more Georgian era history, while we taste locally roasted coffee or spicy chai latté on our way to the bustling Saturday Bath Farmers Market.  This weekly market, held undercover at the old Green Park Train Station, is where we will literally taste the “West Country”, the beautiful agricultural region surrounding Bath.  From hand made sourdough bread to 3 day old sheep’s cheese, from savoury butternut squash pie to single variety red apple juice, we will meet more than a dozen food producers, hear their family stories and taste their specialities.  Finally, we will head to an award winning local brew house in the same neighbourhood for a private tour of the microbrewery, followed by a tasting of craft ales and a treat from their on-site smokehouse.

On this Local Flavours tour, you will have enjoyed a bit of history, tasted unique food and drinks from the Southwest of England, and truly sampled an authentic neighbourhood of Bath.

 

3.  HISTORIC PUBS & CRAFT ALES

This tour is available on request;  please enquire.

One of the joys of British travel is stepping back in time and nowhere epitomises this better than the charming pubs dotted throughout the 18th century streets of Bath. Nowadays, microbreweries are on the rise and pubs offer a range of “real ales” from pale to almost black, as well as local cider and perry.  Visit these places of living history, stopping to savour England’s national drink, with options for non-drinkers too.  Carefully matched local nibbles and a traditional pub game will feature on this ale trail. 

 

Private visits are available for all tours and groups.  Families, corporate groups and hen parties all welcome.  Group discounts available.
