On Belfast Bred Food Tours you'll discover the city's fascinating culinary history in the company of Barney, a cheeky chef from the RMS Titanic.

Defrosted after 105 years frozen in an iceberg, Barney has just 2 ½ hours to search Belfast for the finest ingredients. His mission is to recreate a first class banquet served on the iconic ship.
Written by Seth Linder, performed by Michael Lavery and Stephen Beggs, and directed by Paula McFetridge, this mouth-watering dramatic tour gives you the chance to chat with local chefs and savour a wealth of free samples at each location including:
  •     gourmet delights at century-old Sawers Deli, established in 1897
  •     Northern Ireland's celebrated seafood at Mourne Seafood
  •     locally sourced traditional Irish Stew at The Dark Horse
  •     superb artisan beers at the atmospheric John Hewitt.
Finish up at St George's Market, one of the finest food markets in Europe, first opened when Barney was a boy!
This monthly tour is available on various Saturdays throughout the year. Check for a full list of dates and times.
Tickets cost £22, including all food and drink samples. The meeting point is Sawers Deli.
Tickets are available in person from the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre (9 Donegall Square North), by phoning 028 9024 6609 or online at

There's an old Belfast saying: "If you can't get it in Sawers, you can't get it anywhere." Selling a range of fine foods, it's Northern Ireland's oldest deli.
