Explore The Tour 

During the 3 and half hours tour you will visit four over-the-counter eateries, sourcing local Scottish produce as well as one drink establishment to sample various Scottish beverages. We will finish the tour in one of the oldest golfing pubs in the world for the last food taster.

Whilst touring, you will discover the history of two very historic areas of Edinburgh: Morningside and Bruntsfield. Both of these neighbourhoods are away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and give you an authentic look at local Edinburgh life.

In each of the eateries you will get the opportunity to sample a taster of a particular food item. Samples are not meal replacements, therefore we recommend that you munch away and buy other bits and bobs to eat or to take away for later or even to buy as a gift. In doing so you will be supporting independent business in the area.

Whilst you’re sampling the taster you will find out about how that particular food was lovingly made.

You will definitely leave feeling full, so no need for dinner!


The tour will commence at 2pm outside the Barclay Viewforth Church in Bruntsfield. It will finish around 5.30pm in the Golf Tavern Bruntsfield.

£40 per adult. £15 for 6-15 year olds. Under 5’s go free- leaving you with extra money to spend in the eateries along the way.
