It was fun to discover very old pubs that I would never have discovered on our own. Will our guide also provided an excellent history of the pub and area.

What a wonderful tour! My husband and I enjoyed it so much. Becki was a wonderful tour guide! We loved all the pubs we visited, all the food and drinks were delicious. It was the perfect combination of food, history, sightseeing, and local culture. Becki was great at pacing us, so we saw everything without feeling rushed. I especially enjoyed our time getting to visit as a group in the pubs. Highly recommend this to everyone.

Cool off the wall locations, we had a fun group and great guide. The vegetarian options were not quite up to the same standard as the non vegetarian options.
