Celiac's Fayre
Twyford, Hampshire View On Map
Found this cafe on this site, having perused Trip Advisor and not liking what I found there. I'm gluten and soya intolerant and still breastfeeding a milk intolerant tot, so am avoiding dairy too. The cafe is small but the proprietor (a coeliac herself) was brilliant. She was as flexible as she could be - given that I hadn't warned her of our extra needs in advance. Don't expect gastro but do expect good cafe fare and at reasonable prices too. Our food was fresh and tasty. I would happily eat here again and again. She also sells gluten free products.

This is an Italian influenced restaurant, with knowledable staff and fair prices. Almost all of their menu is available gluten free, including pasta and pizza. The food is excellent.

The Chancel
Plymouth, Devon View On Map
I'd recently heard good things about The Chancel on Facebook so I emailed them to check their gluten free options. I had a call back to say they offered gluten free bread, pasta and even pizza in addition to much of the menu being naturally gluten free. They did warn me that they had a very small kitchen and they did prepare gluten containing dishes, but were able to give me enough confidence that they would take cross contamination seriously. We arrived at the restaurant in St Andrews Street and when we were seated at our table we found an anniversary card waiting for us, a lovely touch which was much appreciated. The staff were extremely friendly and immediately came over to discuss the gluten free options with me and the vegetarian options with Abby, without us needing to ask. Abby was told that if there was something she fancied and she could see the ingredients on the menu they would do their best to make it for her.

The option of bruschetta to start was extremely tempting, but we had walked from home on a cold night so we both decided to go for some warming tomato and basil soup to start. This was extremely tasty and we both loved it, and as you can see from the photo mine came with some extremely impressive looking gluten free bread. The bread looked so impressive, that I immediately had one of those "is that really gluten free" moments. However, the waitress had stated it was GF on bringing it to the table and it was suitably different to Abby's Tiger bread to put me at ease. The bread was good and overall this was a very impressive starter and perfect for the cold occasion. The portion size was generous too.

For the main course, I decided to go with one of the naturally gluten free steak dishes rather than gluten free pasta or pizza. I decided to go with my favourite fillet steak, and was extremely happy to be told all the steak sauces were already gluten free. This meant I could have peppered sauce, something I love and a rare treat! The only downside was that the chips were not gluten free. Again I was told this without needing to ask, and received new potatoes as a substitute. Another enjoyable course, though I have to say the steak was not quite as tender as I usually expect of a fillet, but enjoyable none the less. I definitely enjoyed being able to have the steak sauce for a change too.

For dessert I was given a choice of creme brulee, or surprisingly sticky toffee pudding. I am a big fan of creme brulee and was too full for (and maybe slightly wary of) sticky toffee pudding. The creme brulee was creamy and delicious as you would expect, and a nice light dessert to finish off the meal. Overall we were very well looked after, the food was good and there was plenty of gluten free choice. I suffered no ill effects so they managed to prevent any cross contamination in their small kitchen with no problems. I would definitely go back for another meal, and it's great to be able to add another restaurant to the gluten free friendly list.

Stratton House Hotel
Biggleswade, Bedfordshire View On Map
Me and some friends from the Beds and Mid Herts Coeliac support group recently visited the Stratton House Hotel in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire for a Gluten Free meal. One of our group had dined there a number of times before and we were all looking forward to the meal. It didn't disappoint. The options for Coeliac diners is extensive with plenty of choices for starters and main, and it was unfortunate that we were all so full from the very large portions that we had no room for dessert as one of the choices was a Black Forest Roulade! There was also gluten free beer available, in the form of Pathfinder Ale from Glebe Farm. The starters were very good, with my wife having a huge portion of Mussels and I had the liver pate, served with a good amount of bread and salad. We had also been given gluten free bread rolls while we looked at the menus. A very nice touch. For the main course I went for the chicken and ribs, served with some excellent big fat and crunchy chips. Unfortunately I wasn't expecting quite such a large portion so couldn't finish it. We'll definitely be going back, I really want more of the chips - they were delicious and I'll save room for dessert next time. Well worth a visit for the good food and service. All reasonably priced too.

Village House Coaching Inn
Findon, West Sussex View On Map
We stayed at the Village House Coaching Inn in Findon near Worthing and when we booked we asked if they could cater for a Gluten & Wheat Free breakfast. Upon arrival we were told that gluten free bread and GF sausages (from the butchers over the road) had been bought for breakfast. A nice way to start a day out :-)

Teesdale Hotel
Middleton in Teesdale, County Durham View On Map
What a pleasant surprise! This place has certainly improved in quality since last year. New chef produces interesting menus and great quality food, very reasonably priced (3-course meal for 3, including wine, for under £70) - and really understands gluten free. Friendly, welcoming service too. We'll certainly be coming back.

The Sportsman
Whitstable, Kent View On Map
I write this on behalf of my parents who have visited this Michelin starred restaurant in Seasalter nr Whitstable in Kent twice now. They informed the restaurant at the time of booking of my mother's gluten intolerance and were reassured that it would not be a problem. On arrival they were not disappointed - a member of the kitchen staff came to their table and discussed their requirements and advised what could and couldn't be eaten. They provided gluten free alternatives where possible i.e bread. Mum enjoyed wonderful foods and a lovely relaxed atmosphere and actually was made to feel rather special (in a nice way). Based on their experience, well worth a visit.

Vittoria On the Bridge
George IV Bridge, Edinburgh View On Map
On Friday evening I went to Vittoria's on the Bridge with friends. The place was packed and the restaurant does advise booking, however we were found a table and made to feel welcome. Vittoria's has a huge GF menu and take GF very seriously. I advised them I needed gluten free food and they advised me of dishes which could be adjusted to be GF on top of those that already were. I ordered chicken in a tomato sauce with rice and my meal arrived with a little flag on it I think to differentiate it in what is an undoubtedly busy restaurant. The waiter checked that who the GF dish was for. The food was hot and tasty and all my companions enjoyed their meals. I was impressed by the generous portions and could not finish my meal. The waiters were great especially considering how busy the place was. Vittoria's has a sister restaurant on Leith Walk with a similar menu.

The Wetherby Whaler
Guiseley, West Yorkshire View On Map
Situated on the former site of the first ever Harry Ramsden's, the Wetherby Whaler in Guiseley has kept much of the charm of the old building, along with an excellent reputation for fish and chips. There are high ceilings and glittering chandeliers, and most importantly, a gluten-free fryer. We turned up at about noon on a Saturday and it's lucky we turned up early as the place was packed by the time we left, mostly silver haired women turning up in droves. As we sat down, I asked the waitress what I could have that was gluten-free, as there was no mention of it anywhere on the menu. She can't have been much more than about 18, looked nervous, and said "I'll just check for you". That.s GOOD service for us coeliacs. We LOVE it when you check for us, as it puts our minds at ease. When she returned, she let me know that I could have any fish done gluten-free for me. I chose the regular haddock. Every fish dinner they do comes with bread and butter plus tea included in the price, so I was very impressed when the bread and butter for the gluten-eaters was put on the far end of the table from me. When my fish was brought to me, I almost got a bit scared as it looked so... normal! Perfectly golden brown.

The taste didn't disappoint. The fish was succulent, meaty and wonderful, while the batter was crispy and flavoursome. It certainly didn't taste "gluten-free". The chips were wonderful - I just wish I had remembered to bring my own vinegar. The portions were huge - so big that my boyfriend and his mother didn't finish their plates. I, on the other hand, ploughed through, for it is not often that I get to have fish and chips that is so good!

Fratelli Sarti
3 Locations, Glasgow View On Map
Sarti's is my all time favourite restaurant. We've been going there on every family birthday, anniversary, special occasion etc for years now and I was delighted when my dad phoned up and found out that they'd started doing gluten free pasta. We mentioned that I was coeliac on arrival, and I was pleased to notice that the menu stated that gluten free pasta was available. My dad had been told on the phone that they did gluten free bread but it wasn't marked on the menu and I didn't want to make a fuss and ask.

I ordered my usual favourite (pasta pomodoro) with the gluten free pasta and the order went off to the kitchen. It took a little longer than usual, as gluten free meals often do, but it was just as delicious as I remember it. I know pomodoro always sounds boring since it's just a plain tomato sauce, but Sarti's do it best! My mum asked them what they put in it one time and I know carrot and celery are both on the ingredients list! I don't cook very well so this seems a bit random to me but it obviously works. We love it so much that we used to buy the sauce in bulk to have in the freezer! They stopped selling the sauce on its own a couple of years ago so I hadn't been able to have it since my diagnosis until they started doing the gluten free pasta.

Sarti's is still my favourite restaurant in Glasgow and probably always will be. My family couldn't even find food that compared to it when we were on holiday in Italy in 2006! I'm so glad that it's still somewhere I can go and enjoy a meal just like I used to.

, Chain View On Map
I find Leon Restaurants to be great places to grab a quick gluten &l wheat free bite to eat, or if I have more time to have a sit-down meal. I've been to the branches in London (at King's Cross Station, Carnaby Street, Fleet Street/Ludgate Circus, Cannon Street, The Strand and Bankside) as well as the Bluewater restaurant. My experience in each has been very good. The service has always been great. The food is not just fast food, but good food too. There are always plenty of options for Gluten & Wheat Free diners so I never feel like I have only one or two choices of what to eat. There are also desserts (the cakes and snacks are on separate cake stands and have different utensils for serving) and since the Leon Baked Fries become Gluten & Wheat Free I have visited even more! If you visit, make sure to pick up a Leon Loyalty Card as you can then get a free snack or dessert when you get a full card.

The Regent Pub
Islington, London View On Map
I was recently invited to the CELIA Time Craft Beer/Gluten Free event at The Regent pub in Islington, London, where I had the chance to try out the new premium Czech gluten free lager (and some surprise Gluten Free snacks)! It was a great evening and really good to meet the team from CELIA and hear about the process of making it. There were certainly a few of us enjoying the free samples on the night! The food on the evening was supplied by the WAGfree bakery in Brixton, who provided some nice savoury quiches. We were also served a selection of Pizzas that are on sale at The Regent. The pizzas were the best I've had since being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and the bases (from Annie's Larder) are very good indeed. The Regent pub has two sister pubs The Lauriston and The Hanbury Arms and both serve CELIA Lager and Gluten Free Pizzas.

Tempus Restaurant at Hotel Russell
Russell Square, London View On Map
My wife and I recently headed to the Tempus Restaurant at Hotel Russell in central London having seen that the menu there offered Gluten Free options. Before being seated we double checked that they offered Gluten Free choices and they confirmed they could. The service was friendly and efficient and we decided to have a starter and a main. With the starters there was one option, but as I like Ham Hock Terrine this was fine. The online menu shows a different choice of dishes and it appears that one starter is GF. For the main course I had a Slow braised featherblade of beef which was delicious and a good sized portion. With the accompanying mash and vegetables it was nice and filling. The dessert menu had nothing asterisked as GF, so it wasn't worth looking at. I wouldn't have been able to eat a pudding even if there was one available, but it's a shame that nothing had been considered. Overall the meal was very good and the dining room (and the hotel in general) was a nice old setting for a meal. We'd eat there again and it's good to have another option for dining out when in London.

Whole Foods Market
, Nationwide View On Map
At Whole Foods Market stores you can buy a good range of Gluten Free products. Some of the GF products can't be found elsewhere so it can make for an interesting shopping experience to pick up some new and interesting food items. It's always nice to vary the diet when you're a Coeliac. I've found both the Piccadilly Circus and Camden Whole Foods Markets in London to be very good places to shop.

Pizza Face
Brighton, East Sussex View On Map
Pizza Face is a teeny tiny takeaway pizza joint in Brighton, which has a variety of interesting and gourmet-sounding topping combinations. For an extra pound, they will give you a gluten-free pizza on a delicious homemade base made with Dove's Farm flour. It all sounded so good until I realised quite how small the place was. You could fit about three people in the waiting area, and the kitchen and oven were right there, so I could see all the flour that was around. I started to get nervous. I told the very friendly staff I had coeliac disease, and they assured me precautions would be taken (although they are cooked in the same oven, so there would always be the possibility of contamination).

I chose "The Bore", so called because it used boar sausages, but I was pretty amused when my box came out with "GF bore" written on it, because let's face it, what coeliac hasn't been a bit of a gluten-free bore at times?

We went for a short walk and on coming back, the pizza was in the oven. I was twitching like mad, worried about invisible (and visible) bits of flour, and it wasn't until I had seen the whole pizza being made that I realised many precautions had, in fact, been taken by the staff. They wiped down the area of the oven before use, and the guy used his (clean!) hands to turn it rather than the shovel used for the other pizzas. They wiped down the side before they even put my pizza box on the table. They used a clean cutter to cut mine up with. I really needn't have worried so much, but I do tend to get a bit anxious when I don't have full control of my food.

Still, on to the pizza. The toppings were really, REALLY, good, as was the sauce. Very flavourful, not too salty, and just delicious. The base was great when it was hot, but as it cooled it went a bit hard. You could tell it was made with Dove's Farm flour, as it had the same distinctive texture, but on the whole not a bad base. I didn't get glutened. I didn't have a reaction. My stomach bloated up a little because I ate a giant pizza topped with cheese. If you are extremely sensitive to gluten, you may react, but I have been glutened by pizza dust before, and it was clear that in this case good and responsible precautions were taken. Overall, a great day out! This will definitely be my go-to place when I'm next in Brighton.
