What is a Tasty Tour?
Tasty Tours offers guided food tours of different parts of London that highlight the most interesting and delicious bar and restaurant concepts. They won’t just be pointed out, you’ll get to try samples of what they offer and really get a feel for the atmosphere and what they’re all about. We love little independent businesses and hidden gems, and want to show you London’s personality and the people that make it what it is.
If you’re looking to take your team out for the afternoon, if you’re in the food industry and are looking for R&D opportunities or if you’re visiting and want a whistlestop tour of the best destinations, a Tasty Tour is a relaxed and enjoyable way to take in several venues in one afternoon. You’ll eat a whole range of different foods (or drink lots of different drinks if you’re doing a bar tour), learn a little about the area and go away with plenty of inspiration.
Most of our customers are corporate groups, and we’re very used to adapting and creating bespoke itineraries with a particular theme in mind. But our own itineraries are pretty good too, so no worries if you want to keep it general.
Below is a selection, but you can also tour Brixton, Bermondsey, The Square Mile (surprisingly juicy) and Shoreditch, for both food and bars. Just get in touch to discuss what you’re looking for.

What do you need to know?
Food or drink tours can run with 2 – 12 people any day of the week. They do tend to work best in the afternoons, especially for larger groups, but get in touch if you’re looking at different timings. You can book an existing itinerary or we’ll create one for you, and if you’re not quite sure what would be best for you we can make recommendations.
The tours go ahead regardless of the weather, but in the case of torrential rain or blizzards itineraries may be adjusted to spend more time inside and less time braving the elements.
Costs start at £95 per head but vary according to itineraries, dates and numbers. Get in touch and we’ll provide a quote for you.
I’m Amy and I’ve been working in food and restaurants in various venues around London since 2009, so I’ve always needed to have a good understanding of what’s out there, what’s new, what’s successful, who’s reinventing themselves and why, and what it means for their customers.
I have a food blog where I review restaurants and try out recipes, so I’m pretty much always planning my next feed. I like keeping food tours relaxed and flexible, making sure we see some great venues and also have an enjoyable afternoon. I love doing them and hope you will feel the same!
I also do restaurant marketing and PR, and mystery dining – for more info on that side, check out Tasty Comms.
The guided tour from Amy was a really special treat for my team, we had a fabulous day out. The tour was well-organised, informative and most of all, great fun and with plenty of new food discoveries and things to try.
We all loved the interesting places Amy took us to and the clever way they each fitted our theme for the day. We enjoyed each location so much that many of the team now have plans to return to the restaurants Amy introduced us to.
Having been on a few of Amy’s tours now, they have helped us grow our food offer throughout the business and kept us informed, ahead and fed (!) by the concepts we visited.
On top of this the tours are great fun and Amy is a fantastic guide to some real hidden gems.
Our tour host was the delightful Amy Lainchbury. We enjoyed a food taster in all the venues and enjoyed an informal chat with the manager/owner about the concept, how it came about, the customers, what’s popular etc, to help give us more of an insight.
We had 8 stops planned for the afternoon including my personal favourite Crosstown Doughnuts. Tours finish with a light dinner, on this tour we stopped off at Blacklock for a very large plate of chops, giving us the opportunity to have a relaxing drink together, to round off an interesting and informative afternoon in casual, sociable way.
