Please note that due to the nature of the historical foods we’ll encounter on this particular tour, while we can cater for vegetarians we sadly are not able to cater for gluten-free, dairy-free, and/or vegan diets, as we are not able to provide appropriate alternatives to the historical foods we’ll be sampling while maintaining the context and theme of the tour.  The Georgian’s seemed to have somewhat different needs to our 20th century palettes!
Samples of an alcohol based beverage are often included on this tour but will not be served to under 18s.  If you look under the age of 25 you may be asked for a form of ID before we offer you any alcoholic samples.
You’re still welcome to participate if you are under 18 and/or have special dietary needs but you may miss out on some of the samples; however, we recommend any of our other tours which can better cater for your needs.
