The Brook Inn
Washbrook, Suffolk View On Map
We had heard that The Brook Inn at Washbrook (near Copdock), which is very close to Ipswich, Suffolk did gluten free food. Prior to our recent visit we'd had a look on their website and saw there was a lot of gluten free choices. When we arrived we received a nice welcome in the relaxed pub and restaurant and sat down to look through the menu. It really does have a lot of options for Coeliacs, with plenty of choices of starters, mains and desserts! We opted to have a starter and a main. For my starter I had the goats cheese with a red onion chutney, while my wife had the chicken liver pate, made gluten free by substituting the normal bread for gluten free bread. The portions were very good and the food was delicious. For mains my wife and I both went for the Belly of Pork that was served with an apple schnapps sauce, crackling, mashed potatoes, vegetables and a ratatouille. The portion was large and the pork was very tender indeed. Great crackling too. After the main meal we were feeling full, but couldn't resist going for a dessert too. I had the chocolate brownie, with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. A very nice way to round off the meal. My wife had the Chocolate Puddle Pudding (not a gluten free choice) and found the rich chocolately dish to be too chocolately! We'll definitely be back to try out more of the dishes on the menu. We had a chat to the landlord who told us that they were looking to add more choice! The pub is easily reachable from Ipswich and was nicely busy for a Tuesday night, with a number of regulars enjoying the food on offer.

Monty's Caribbean Kitchen
Barnstaple, Devon View On Map
Drawn in by the Caribbean beats, the sunshine and the amazing scents wafting down the street, my friend Hannah and I stumbled across Monty's Caribbean Kitchen almost by accident. I'd often seen the make-shift sign on the roundabout in Roundswell, Barnstaple, advertising the Kitchen's presence from 5pm until 8pm every Saturday, but I'd never really gone to investigate.

We'd decided to walk to Sainsbury's to get something comforting to cook for dinner, but on the way we came out right next to the trailer on Old Bideford Road and we couldn't resist how amazing the food smelt! The Kitchen arrives each week with a new menu, and up this week was jerk pork, jerk chicken, goat curry and a sweet potato curry. I asked what was gluten free and was told everything except the goat curry, which has dumplings in. I was a little sad because I tried goat in Uganda and loved it, but the rest looked so amazing I was over it pretty quickly! We decided to geta regular portion of each of the jerk chicken, pork and sweet potato curry, which comes with rice and peas and salad. When we were handed over the portions I couldn't believe how generous they were - they were positively bursting! I think it was a severe case of 'eyes bigger than stomach'.

As Caribbean food just eminates sunshine, it was only right we ate it in the back garden and enjoyed it with some fruity smoothies! The jerk chicken and pork were amazing - full of flavour! I preferred the pork, it's one of my favourite meats and I don't get to eat it as much as chicken, and it was so tender! The sweet potato curry provided a bit of sauce to mop up with the rice, and it was sweet with a spicy kick. Again, I just couldn't believe the flavour bursting from these dishes. I've always wanted to try Caribbean food and now I'm desperate to get my hands on a good cook book!

Finding Monty's Caribbean Kitchen was definitely the best suprise of the night and the fact they are a small trailer hidden off the main road makes it even more of a treasure trove.

Leon
, Chain View On Map
When you live in rural North Devon, it doesn't get much more exciting than going to London. A far cry away from the country lanes and rolling feels, the buzz of the big city never fails to excite me. One of the things I love the most about London is the fact there is SO MUCH FOOD that is gluten free, and it's everywhere! At home seeing 'GF' on the menu is a novelty but at least here I know I can find something round the corner. We had a bit of a wait in Kings Cross and decided to visit the chain Leon. We'd first discovered this 'naturally fast food' place when we got stuck waiting for a late-night train last year and it was our savior from boredom and starvation!

The idea is that there's a simple menu - most of it gluten free - and you can choose what you want and whether you want anything extra like fries.

I had a browse of the menu and was torn between the meatballs and chicken, so I opted for the chicken option with salad, and fries (obviously). I was pleased to see all of the gluten free options were clearly marked which made it really easy for me to navigate and choose what I wanted without having to quiz the staff. The chicken came with brown rice, a wedge of lemon, a dollop of mayo and a medley of salad including cabbage and beans (I think!). The lattice fries were delicious and I loved the flavouring on them - they reminded me of curly fries which I haven't been able to find gluten free yet - so it was worth it just for that nostalgic moment! If you're after food on the go and you want something clearly labelled and relatively well-priced then Leon is a great go-to. Itís nice to see so many chains offering gluten free food - I just wish we had more of them at home!!

Balincourt Hotel
Bournemouth, Dorset View On Map
We stayed in the Balincourt Hotel in Bournemouth (great location for the Boscombe Chine Mini Golf course), which can cater for Coeliacs for breakfast (and evening meals if required). There were gluten free cereals available and the full English breakfast was a great way to start the day.

Natural Bourne Grillers
Bournemouth, Dorset View On Map
While in Boscombe, Dorset earlier this summer (for a Minigolf tournament at the great Boscombe Chine Mini Golf course) we'd found a number of suggestions for Gluten Free options from the Gluten Free Vegetarian UK blog that had lots of reviews and suggestions for restaurants and takeaways in the Bournemouth, Boscombe and Southbourne area. One of the restaurants we were most looking forward to visiting was Natural Bourne Grillers. The online menu had certainly whetted our appetites and it was the first place we dined on Thursday. So good was the food and service that we also booked a table for Friday night! Natural Bourne Grillers is a steakhouse and grill and all meals can be prepared gluten free! The chef told us that he has friends with coeliac disease so he makes a real effort to make sure the food at the restaurant is safe and tasty. It really was great and I can't recommend it highly enough. On both days I opted for the 10oz bacon cheeseburger! It was a massive burger (two 5oz steak mince patties in a good gluten free bun with plenty of cheese and nice bacon) and came with hand cut fries and a great coleslaw. On the Saturday we also went for the BBQ chicken wings which were very good. We will definitely be heading back again. There are plenty of other items on the menu and they have a number of daily specials and offers during the week. There is also no corkage fee when you take your own alcohol which is great. I'll definitely dine there again.

Kingfisher Fish & Chip Shop and Restaurant
Keswick, Cumbria View On Map
I spotted Kingfisher Fish & Chip Shop on your Kindle App whilst staying in Keswick. There's a takeaway and a restaurant but we decided to eat in the restaurant. There were several posters advertising Gluten Free fish & chips and these stated that they used rice flour rather than batter so people with a dairy intolerance could eat it as well. The fish had a light, crispy coating and was really tasty and the chips were really crispy. I would definitely eat there again.

The Pillars Tea Room
Keswick, Cumbria View On Map
I was looking for somewhere to have lunch in Keswick and decided to try The Pillars Tea Room as their board outside advertised a Gluten Free Menu. They offered Gluten Free sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, jacket potatoes and scones. I had a cheese and tomato toasted sandwich and it was delicious.

The Baguette Box
Bicester, Oxfordshire View On Map
Called in on the off chance that they may serve GF food. The place is run by a lady called Sonia who could not have been more helpful. She was able to offer GF rolls with a range of GF fillings, and GF cookies. Very helpful lady, very attentive staff, please visit if you have the misfortune to go to Bicester Village - there's more to the town than just a designer outlet centre.

Art Café
Oxford, Oxfordshire View On Map
So on a recent trip to Oxford my friend and I headed to the supermarket to purchase a picnic lunch to eat in the park. Now I have to say on this occasion I cheated a bit as on the way to the supermarket I discovered a cafe that did gluten free sandwiches - something you rarely see and I therefore couldn't turn down. At the Art Café the glutenous sandwiches are already made up and displayed in the window but you can choose any of the filling combinations and they will make one up on gluten free bread for you. The sandwich was delicious and not too expensive and went perfectly with our carrots and hummus for our picnic in the park (though I have to admin the sandwich did not last the walk to the park).

I'm pleased to say that whilst the sandwich was a little bit of a splurge I did refrain from purchasing one of the many gluten free sweet options, which unlike GF sandwiches, you see almost everywhere these days!

abokado
, Chain View On Map
Out of chance I stumbled across abokado the other day. I was looking for a small (cheap) snack to last me until I got home from my morning of sightseeing and so thought I'd go in and check the place out. Well imagine my surprise when I realised that items that were gluten free were labelled with 'gf' and at least 50% of the products were labelled so! Even better were the prices, Shwrap's (basically a sushi roll) were £1.49-£1.68 and you could get a meal (e.g. rice paper rolls with edamame salad) for about £5. Whilst it wasn't as good as getting fresh sushi it definitely satisfied me and at those prices I will be back.

Black Horse Pub
Amberley, Gloucestershire View On Map
Went here for a meal with some friends and was very pleasantly surprised by a note on the menu saying all burgers (beef, chicken, veggie etc) could be served GF, as could some of the sausages. I tried a beefburger in a GF bun with chips which was delicious and had no coeliac episode afterwards, which has happened to me several times after supposedly having a GF meal in restaurants. Apparently the management there are new and there is admittedly a fairly limited 'pub-grub' menu, but I would definitely eat here again if I'm in the area. It was lovely to go for a pub meal and not have to go for the safe 'steak and new potatoes' offering!

Grill On The Square
Leicester Square, London View On Map
My favourite dinner in London would have to be the gluten free fish and chips! I was so excited to find a restaurant that had that gluten free option. It was my first fish and chips in a very long time, about 7 years! The restaurant is called The Grill on Leicester Square. It had a few gluten free options, but obviously the fish and chips grabbed my interest. It was absolutely delicious - crunchy, flaky, and oh so good! The mushy peas were good too!

Coast to Coast
, Chain View On Map
Loads of my friends have been raving about Coast to Coast and when it comes to food, I'm always more than happy to take recommendations. Especially where steak is concerned. Coast to Coast are a UK chain of American-style restaurants, and the Brighton branch is located on the boardwalk at Brighton Marina. Last week, I went along with a group of friends for dinner to see what gluten-free dining options they had on offer. The allergy information is easy to locate and download from their website - I saved it to my phone as a PDF ready to reference when I got there. They make a point of asking you to tell your server whether you have any allergies or intolerances when you arrive, so I mentioned to the waitress right away that I couldn't eat gluten and she said that was no problem at all.

Armed with my allergy info I went in for a full-on meat-fest right from the start. I chose the slow-baked ribs as my appetiser, a half portion of BBQ sauce-slathered ribs served with homemade coleslaw. For the main I ordered the 8oz Casterbridge steak, described as "the best steak we do" served with fresh rocket, tomatoes on the vine, homemade slaw and sweet potato chips. The ribs were absolutely to die for. The meat fell right off the bone and the BBQ sauce was fruity and sticky and I licked every last little bit off my fingers. Classy. Then the steak came out. Wow. I've never had a cut of rump that's as lean, thick, juicy, and melt-in-the-mouth as this was. What's more, I asked for it rare and it came out absolutely perfect. Top marks for that. The sweet potato chips were crunchy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside - they had a gorgeous flavour and made a really nice change to the usual skinny potato fries you tend to get with a steak.

I was hugely impressed with Coast to Coast. For a chain restaurant the atmosphere was great, the service was fantastic and I'd go as far as to say that my food was faultless. I cannot wait for my next visit - I've got to get another fix of that steak soon.

Foodilic
Brighton, East Sussex View On Map
I've been a big fan of Foodilic on North Street for ages. It's like the healthiest all-you-can-eat you can possibly imagine with mountains of amazing salads to stack your plate with. Dishes on offer include peas, green beans and mange tout with spicy walnut dressing; spicy chickpeas and roasted sweet potatoes; butternut squash with pumpkin seeds and Mediterranean salad with feta cheese. All healthy, flavoursome and filling. Last week (with much excitement) I wandered down to try the all-new Foodilic on Western Road... and was very confused when I walked in. This place is run by the same company, but it's not an all-you-can-eat. Instead, it's more geared towards take-away lunches. In the North Street branch you pay by weight when you get the take-out option, but here you pay per scoop of whatever it is you want. This actually makes the takeaway much better value - and it's less than two minutes from my office. Result!

There's a mixture of gluten-containing and gluten-free stuff on offer at the Western Road branch. All of the raw salads are gluten and dairy free (clearly marked on the board behind the counter) and the staff were on the ball enough to tell me straight away which of the other dishes contained gluten: good sign. I opted for a scoop of each of the four raw salads.

Sabai Thai
Brighton, East Sussex View On Map
The bank holiday weekend has been absolutely glorious down in Brighton, so my boyfriend and I decided to take a wander into the city centre to soak up the sunshine and enjoy a bite to eat. With a hankering for something substantial but vaguely healthy, we wandered over to take a look at the menu in Sabai Thai Gastrobar, based just off North Street next to Pavilion Gardens. I'd never been to Sabai before today, thinking that it would be just another budget Thai restaurant. As is usually the case with Thai food, I was fully prepared to scrutinise the menu and take a gamble on a couple of dishes being gluten-free. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were plenty of dishes marked GF - the first Thai restaurant I've seen doing this in the city.

As my starter, I went for coconut and vegetable soup which was absolutely gorgeous. Delicately spiced, deliciously creamy with a great balance of flavour, it would be a fantastic marinade for mussels too. For my main, I opted for Thai spicy salad with chicken, served with jasmine rice. This is a cold dish which you can order with meat or tofu, served in a sweet chilli sauce with warm rice. My boyfriend went for the Thai red curry with chicken (also a gluten-free dish) so I had to nick a forkful - purely in the interests of research, of course. It was medium-spiced, beautifully creamy and the ideal portion size for a lunch menu. I'll definitely be trying this one next time, as red curry is a particular favourite of mine.

I absolutely love Thai food, and Sabai is definitely up there with other Thai places in the city in terms of quality and value. What sets Sabai apart though is not having to take a gamble on which dishes are gluten-free - I know exactly what I can order without worrying about whether I'm going to be inadvertently "glutened". I reckon this is where I'll be going to get my Thai fix until other restaurants in the city follow suit.
