Park Hotel
Barnstaple, Devon View On Map
I normally dread asking waiters about what is gluten free, but instead of being met with the usual blank stare, the staff at the hotel were so helpful! They told me exactly what was gluten free and what wasn't, and even supplied me with my own separate jug of gravy, which was waiting for me at my place as I returned from looting the carvery. The carvery was delicious - a great selection of veg (with swede mash, my fave!) and a choice of beef or turkey. Naturally, I went for a bit of both! I was also really pleased to find that my gluten free gravy was proper, thick gravy - at other places I have been given thin, watery stuff, but this looked better than everyone elses! When the dessert menu came round, I prepared myself for disappointment - I was eyeing up the pavlova but feared I would be stuck with the fresh fruit salad. But, as luck would have it, the pavlova was gluten free! And my gosh, was it delicious! I was so happy to be able to feel 'normal' and not be left with different food or the rubbish dessert - I always find it so disheartening when restaurants have GF options but never consider pudding! Great food, great wine and a great time had by all - if you're planning a stay in North Devon I would reccommend!

Kingfisher Fish & Chip Shop and Restaurant
Keswick, Cumbria View On Map
While wandering through Keswick we were looking in the many restaurants, tea rooms, cafes and fish amp;& chip shops in the hope we'd spot something nice to eat gluten free. We were about to leave to move onto the next stop on our tour when we decided to look at the menu of the Kingfisher Fish & Chip shop and to our surprise spotted a poster next to the main menu advertising that the sold Gluten Free Fish & Chips and that separate pans used for all products and that it was suitable for Coeliacs. So I ordered a portion. It only took a few extra minutes to prepare and cook and was in a light batter from the pan frying, rather than a deep fried batter. The chips were cooked in separate fryers and I was told they were gluten free too. The food was very tasty. Unfortunately the condiments available (apart from the salt) were not. There was non-brewed condiment available to purchase (I didn't want to buy a whole bottle, it would've been a waste), but the countertop condiment was malt vinegar. The Kingfisher has a fish & chip shop takeaway and an eat-in restaurant.

The Midland Hotel - Sun Terrace Restaurant & Rotunda Bar
Morecambe, Lancashire View On Map
Prior to our visit to Morecambe we had found out online that The Midland Hotel was able to provide Gluten Free food so when we arrived we headed there for dinner. Before we were seated we double checked that they could cater for Coeliacs and were told they could. When we were seated my wife was brought normal bread and they waiter remembered not to serve me any. A minute later he returned with a plate of gluten free bread. A nice touch and a good start to a meal. With plenty of gluten free choice we decided to have a starter and main course and I chose the Pigeon to start and the Blade of Beef for the main course. Both were excellent. My wife really enjoyed her food too. I was too full to have a dessert as well but the waiter did check with the kitchen what desserts could be made gluten free as the menu only listed one GF option. He came back with three dishes that could be adapted, and also said that the chef could make a Poached Pear. I'll save room for a dessert next time. The restaurant is in a great spot and the dining room overlooks the beach and provided some great views as the sun went down. Service at The Midland Hotel was very good and the waiters and waitresses had a good knowledge of gluten free/Coeliacs so the dining experience was faultless.

The Orangery
North Berwick, East Lothian View On Map
While in North Berwick we spotted 'Gluten Free Cake' on the menu of The Orangery Tea Room. It wasn't home made, but a Honeybuns Chocolate Brownie. The Tea Room looked nice and there is also an art gallery inside the shop/tearoom, but that was the only Gluten Free item on offer. We couldn't find anywhere else to eat GF in North Berwick either.

White Monk Tearoom
Blanchland, County Durham View On Map
We frequently use this delightful little tearoom, and have never been disappointed. The owner is coeliac, so they really understand what they are doing. The soup is always gf, as is the hot special, and there's always good gf bread if you want a sandwich, as well as at least one gf cake option. Ice cream is gf too. Open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. Lovely little village, with really good walks around too!

Jalapeno Peppers is a Mexican restaurant in Barnstaple, North Devon. They clearly label all their food as gluten free - including tacos, fajitas and enchilladas - a first for me! Helpful staff, great food and atmosphere - top notch!

A surf shop, pasty shop and ice cream shop all in one - with a great gluten free range (I should know, I used to work there and was the one that brought it all in!) Gluten free pasties, cakes - all brought in from a delicious company sealed so they don't get contaminated. staff are knowledgable (having drilled it into them before I left) Ice creams are widely gluten free - but ask the staff for info on what you can and can't have and they will kindly oblidge!

Coq d'Argent
City Of London, London View On Map
I recently went to Coq d'Argent for a client lunch. Coq d'Argent is one of the restaurants in the City of London that comes alive in the Summer - especially Friday evenings - as it is unique for 2 reasons. The first it is a rooftop restaurant with a bar that has great views of the City of London and the second is the spectacular roof garden which is the place to be on a nice summer's evening.

Having booked the lunch, I let the classically French restaurant know in advance that I was a coeliac and thus ate gluten-free. As soon as we arrived, I didn't even have to mention that I was gluten intolerant, our waiter already knew and asked which one of us diners ate gluten-free. The waiter then took some time out to go through the menu with me explaining what was gluten-free and what could be modified to be gluten-free. I really felt like the restaurant made a big effort to accommodate my dietary requirements. I was also offered gluten-free bread which I gratefully accepted (and, as usual, ate too much of!).

We ordered from the a la carte menu and for an entree I had the seared scallops with mussel in saffron, broad beans and coral aioli and for my main I had baked stone bass with baby artichokes, fennel, courgette, tomato and saffron stew - both of which were absolutely delicious! I would definitely return here being it for lunch or dinner.

Oggy Oggy Falmouth
Falmouth, Cornwall View On Map
Whilst we were walking through Falmouth we saw a sign in the window of Oggy Oggy mentioning that they provide Gluten Free Cornish Pasties. This seemed too good to be true but we stuck our head in and they do indeed stock them. Oggy Oggy looks to have multiple franchise locations throughout the South West and beyond so I am unsure if they stock Gluten free at all locations. The Falmouth location also has an attached tea room but on this occasion we just placed an order to collect our pasties later on in the day. They ask for about 15-30mins to prepare the Gluten Free pasties but believe me, it really is worth the wait.

Having picked up our order later in the day we headed back to our appartment and heated up for a delicious dinner. Had I not known otherwise I would have never know the pasty was GF. If you are in Falmouth I really suggest stopping by and getting your traditional Cornish delight!

NomNom Gluten & Egg Free Bakery
Hampstead, London View On Map
While in Hampstead we walked past a small marquee/tent that had a large banner on the front of it that said Gluten & Egg Free Bakery! This was a very nice surprise indeed and there were lots of different cakes to choose from. My, non-Coeliac, friends were as amazed as me to see the stall and the food on offer! I chose a chocolate brownie and a ring donut. The Donut was the first I've had since being diagnosed (way back in 2008). Both were very nice. Looking at the NomNom Bakery facebook page it says that they can be found outside The House of Mistry health food shop in the centre of Hampstead every Saturday.

Mayfair, London View On Map
I was treated to a late breakfast on a Saturday morning at Aurelia. Aurelia is a relatively new restaurant serving contemporary Mediterranean cuisine in Mayfair. For breakfast, I had the "The full Spanish" which consisted of fried egg, homemade baked beans, pan con tomate, grilled chorizo and Iberico ham. I requested if it could be done gluten-free and I was delighted that they could. The pan con tomate was served on gluten-free bread and, for something so simple, was so refreshing and tasty - I wanted more! I also tried one of their fresh juices which was served in a lovely little caraf. I tried the carrot, orange and ginger which was just lovely. The restaurant wasn't too busy at the time I was in there (only a few other tables seated) but the service was pleasant and attentive. I would return here for breakfast and hopefully I will get a chance in the future to try lunch or dinner.

The Food Hall Delicatessen
, Northampton View On Map
The Food Hall Delicatessen is next door to the Are You Being Served? Tea Room in Northampton and stocks a selection of Gluten Free items. I picked up a bag of Corkers crisps to snack on as I had never seen that particular brand before. There was a good range of meats, cheeses and other Deli items. It's worth a look if you're in town.

Ty-Coch Bungalow
Four Crosses/Llanymynech, Powys View On Map
We found Ty-Coch in Crossed Grain Magazine that goes out to Coeliacs & would highly recommend this B&B-we have stayed twice already & plan to return again this year. To say its "home from home" doesnt quite cover the welcome you get as a guest -its more like being a family member. The food is excellant and comes in abundance-everything is home made & freshly made & always served up with a smile. Last time we stayed it was harvest time for the plums & we came away with a carrier bag full-made several pots of jam when we got home. We have stayed on route to Cornwall & Devon in the past,its a good break on a long journey-this year we hope to stay on way down & on return journey.

Are You Being Served? Tea Room
Northampton, Northamptonshire View On Map
While in Northampton we spotted on the menu of the Are You Being Served? Tea Room that they had Gluten Free food available. We went inside and asked what was available and were told they had gluten free bread, muffins, crumpets and that the soup was GF too. The staff were very friendly and I had a look at the menu which looked good and then asked the question about where the bread would be toasted should I opt for that. I was told it was prepared and cooked in the same places as the non-Gluten Free food. I said that as a Coeliac I couldn't eat there then. So, the Tea Room should be OK for eating Gluten Free, but not if you're a Coeliac.

The Church Bar & Restaurant
Northampton, Northamptonshire View On Map
Upon arriving in Northampton we spotted The Church Bar & Restaurant on Bridge Street and decided to have a look at the menu. We were pleased to see that it stated that a Gluten Free Menu was available. We decided to give it a try later in the evening. We were not to be disappointed. The conversion of the Church, which was built in 1138, into a Restaurant has been very well done indeed and the dining environment is excellent. A lot of original parts remain, such as the stained glass windows, but the dining rooms have been updated and the lighting and heating makes the place very comfortable to spend an evening. The Gluten Free menu offered around four starters and five main courses, while the dessert menu had around five choices too. So there is plenty to choose from. I opted for the Chicken & Duck Liver Parfait to start; this was served with a beetroot, onion and tomato chutney and was very good indeed. My wife had been served a plate of bread to nibble on before the starters were served, unfortunately they do not bring out any Gluten Free bread, or crackers, which is a shame. For the main course I had Roast Chicken Breast with an interesting and delicious Beetroot and Potato Dauphinoise style side, French beans and a sherry cream sauce. This was an excellent meal, with a good size portion and a large Chicken Breast served. Following the two courses I was too full to have a dessert, but the choices looked great, with much more than is normally available when looking at GF Puddings. The service was also very good and I would definitely dine there again in the future. Looking at the website for The Church Bar & Restaurant they do not show the Gluten Free menu or make a mention of being able to serve it. Hopefully this is something they will add soon to make more Coeliacs aware of their offer.

Covent Garden, London View On Map
Wahaca is billed as 'Mexican Market Eating'. Having been to Mexico and tasted the fantastic street food they have there, this had a lot to live up to. Wahaca is the product of Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers. I was lucky enough to see Thomasina do a cooking demonstration at Jimmy's Farm Festival the year before last. She clearly had a real passion for mexican food and flavours and I have wanted to go to Wahaca ever since.

Thomasina has done a fantastic job with Wahaca. It's certainly the most authentic mexican food I've had outside of Mexico and tasted fantastic. We opted for a selection of the street food. Highlights had to be the Pork Pibil tacos, beautifully slow cooked tender marinated pork and Queso Fundidio, a mexican cheese fondu with cactus and carmelised onions. Make sure you save room for the dulce de leche ice cream too - salted caramel ice cream with Valrhona chocolate - sensational. The atmosphere was great, perfect sharing food, and all very reasonably priced.

There's just one minor grumble. Being gluten free can be tricky and it's made even trickier by confusing allergen menus. Our waitress was quick to get the menu for me, but it was difficult to understand what I could and couldn't have. The menu only referred to things which either contained wheat, contained no wheat, or couldn't guarantee trace free. Coeliacs will know that it's more than just wheat that contains gluten but thankfully mexican food doesn't use a lot of gluten containing ingredients. I was absolutely fine with what I ate but it would have been nice to have had no doubt in my mind.

Overall though, will definitely be going back!

, Chain View On Map
I visited Chiquito for an impromptu dinner with a friend at the O2 . It is a Mexican food chain and luckily there are a number of items that are gluten-free on the menu. I had the chilli beef enchiladas with rice and they were quite tasty. The evening we were there the restaurant was quite busy as there was a show on at the O2. I would return to this chain of restaurants.

Gauthier Soho
Soho, London View On Map
Walking down Romilly Street in Soho we came to a front door and other than the golden sign on the right which told you you were at Gauthier Soho, you would just think it was a door to a house. I rang the doorbell and the door opened welcoming us inside.

We decided on the set lunch menu (which was very reasonably priced given the calibre of the restaurant) which was 3 courses although there were extra courses included such as an amuse bouche and pre-dessert palate cleanser. I had advised the restaurant in advance that I was gluten intolerant and the friendly and attentive waitstaff were able to advise me what dishes were gluten-free or which dishes could be modified to be gluten-free. I was offered gluten-free oat cakes instead of bread and my fellow diners were spoilt for choice with a wide selection of bread.

With the set lunch menu, you could also choose to have a half a bottle of wine and as there were 4 of us, we got a bottle of red and a bottle of white. I asked the Sommelier if he wouldn't mind choosing the wine for us as he would know best what would go with our lunch - and his choices were excellent. It was a really nice relaxing lunch and at no time were did we feel hurried. The courses were nicely spaced out and before we knew it, we had spent a few hours at the restaurant. The waitstaff and Sommelier we very nice and you got the feeling that each person really enjoyed working at the restaurant. Alexis Gauthier (chef and owner) also found the time to pop out and say hello which was a really nice touch. I really enjoyed lunch at Gauthier Soho and I haven't been able to stop talking about it. If you are ever stuck for somewhere to eat in Soho, want to have a nice relaxing lunch or need to impress, I strongly recommend Gauthier Soho. I'm looking forward to returning soon!
