Tickle Your Taste Buds with the Taste of Greyabbey Guided Food Tour!

Foodies from across the borough and beyond will be delighted to learn that a new Taste of Greyabbey guided food tour will take place on Thursday 26 September!

Located around seven miles from Newtownards, this unique tour is based in the historic village which gained its name from Grey Abbey, a Cisterian abbey-monastery that dates from 1193.

The village boasts stunning views across Strangford Lough and has since become a food connoisseur’s paradise with a delectable selection of restaurants that offer first-class dining experiences.

‘Herbs, spices and botanicals’ provides the theme of the tour and it all starts on the Thursday evening at the physic garden in the grounds of Grey Abbey with an informative talk on the use of herbs for medicines and cooking.

There will be an opportunity to walk around the Abbey ruins before moving on to a four-course dinner that takes in four different restaurants – Lekker, Tuk Tuk Asian Bistro, Alchemy and ending at the historic Wildfowler Inn with their delicious autumn platter, local ales and evening entertainment.

It’s a truly mouth-watering prospect and as the dark nights start to close in, treating yourself to an exquisite guided food tour in the historic village of Greyabbey where you can enjoy stunning views, delicious food and a little bit of local history never seemed like a better idea!
