Crystal Palace gets 'Cheese Crawl' this weekend
Crystal Palace’s foodies are set to unite on Saturday (July 12) at a pub crawl with a funky twist.
Good Taste Food and Drink in Westow Hill is organising a cheese crawl around seven of the town’s independent pubs.
Starting at The Paxton in Gipsy Road at 2.30pm, people who buy a drink will receive a piece of cheese.
The cheese, beer, wine and charcuterie shop’s owner Manish Utton-Mishra said he wanted to organise something social outside of his shop.
Since announcing it on social media, he has been encouraged.
He said: “It has been quite phenomenal. From what I have seen on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter there are 40 or 50 people coming.”
Anyone who gets stamped at 7 bars will get a 10 per cent discount off every purchase for a year.
One winner, who makes the organisers laugh the most over social media, will get £100 of goodies from the shop.
Good Taste Food and Drink has been up and running in Crystal Palace for three years and Manish was full of enthusiasm for the independent shops and their customers.
He said: “We have an amazingly loyal customer base here. All of the independents do. Everyone has got their own favourite bars and they are fiercly loyal.”
Let Manish know you’re going so he can get enough cheese ready by Tweeting @GoodTasteFood #cheesecrawl or searching Good Taste Food and Drink on Facebook and leaving a comment.
