I’m Nell (short for Ellen) - owner of Leeds Food Tours and your personal foodie tour guide! I’ll be the one taking you around the city and showing you my favourite independent restaurants, bars, street food vendors and more, to give you a taste (see what I did there?) of Leeds’ best food & drink.

Leeds Food Tours champions independent eateries and local suppliers and aims to show you a good time by feeding you a tonne of tasty food whilst sharing a knowledge of Leeds' culinary scene, along with some of the history of food & drink in Leeds, Yorkshire and beyond.

Leeds is constantly changing, with new places opening all the time, meaning it can be hard to keep up! It can be tempting to take the easy way out and avoid complicated decision making by sticking to what you know, but I'm here to show you all the best places, both old and new!

During the 11 years that I've lived in Leeds, I've become more and more passionate about supporting small, independent eateries and suppliers and have loved getting to know the people behind these businesses. At the same time, I've come to understand why it's so important to support the local economy and promote sustainable living. 

Now it's time to share everything I've learnt, and take you on a food tour!
