Edinburgh Food Walking Tours

Presently we cannot provide food tours in Edinburgh due to COVID-19 lockdown resulting in all bars and restaurants being closed.

I am hopeful by early August they will have reopened. But this will depend on how well other areas have coped with coming out of lockdown.

Once bars/restaurants are operational again, for the rest of 2020, we plan to offer private food tours.

  This is to conform to social distancing requirements and ensure your enjoyment of our food tour.

Click on book now button for further information on our private food tours in 2020 and our regular food tours that should running in 2021.


Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Take care.


Discover Edinburgh’s food culture and history with Eat Walk Edinburgh, the original Edinburgh food walking tour.

Eat Walk Edinburgh tours are all about local sourcing. The company is based in Edinburgh, our guides are local and our tours showcase locally sourced, Scottish food and drink.

We live in a beautiful city with a fantastic array of restaurants and bars which we love to share.

Get a taste for Edinburgh’s vibrant food and drink scene with our two guided food tours.

Edinburgh Old and New Town Tour

The three-and-a-half hour Edinburgh Old and New Town food tour explores both the medieval Old Town of Scotland’s capital and its elegant Georgian New Town. Don’t be put off by the name New Town, yes the Old Town does date back in part to the 1100’s but the New Town dates back to the 1700’s so is worth a visit.

There are five food stops en route, three of them with a drink tasting. All of the stops have been carefully chosen not only to highlight Scotland’s iconic food and drink but also because many of the venues are much loved by local residents. This food tour takes you off the tourist trail.

As well as delving deep into Scotland’s natural larder, the Old and New Town food tour illustrates Edinburgh’s past and present; its history and the day-to-day reality of 21st century living in such a historical city.

Guests will be given audio headsets so you can listen live to the guide as you walk at your own pace or stop to take photos. Tour size is limited to 8 people so you all get a chance to get to know each other on the tour.

The Edinburgh Old & New Town food tour takes place Monday to Saturday at 1pm and Monday to Thursday at 5pm. Private tours are available at other times.

The Canongate Brunch Tour

 Eat Walk Edinburgh also offers a mid-morning tour of the Canongate, the lower half of Edinburgh’s fascinating Royal Mile.

The Canongate tour stops at a mix of eateries, bars, and shops. Visiting local shops provides the opportunity to meet local shopkeepers, who love to chat about their produce and have some tasty samples to try.

Weaving between venues, the tour visits some of the (intriguing) nooks and crannies that are a feature of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town. The guide will explain the local history and stories of these lesser known sights
