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!

Lamorna Pottery

Cute little cafe - does a yummy gluten free polenta cake and nice coffees too! Other menus available (i.e. lunch) but did not get a chance to look at these - too distracted by cake!

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!

Colmans Fish & Chip Shop
South Shields, Tyne and Wear View On Map
My wife spotted a Brown Tourist Sign in South Shields pointing to a Fish & Chip Shop, not just any Fish & Chip Shop, but an Award Winning one! When she visited she noticed that every last Saturday in the month "Colmans Award Winning Fish & Chip Shop" does Gluten Free Fish & Chips. Looking on their website it states that on the Coeliac's Gluten Free day all of their food is cooked in dedicated equipment to prevent cross contamination.

Ebury Wine Bar and Restaurant
Westminster/Belgravia, London View On Map
My wife and I visited the Ebury Wine Bar & Restaurant in Victoria, London on a Thursday evening and luckily we were able to get one of the last two remaining unreserved tables in the restaurant. The bar area was also full, so if visiting I would suggest booking in advance. We had found out about the Ebury before Christmas and had planned to give it a try then, but couldn't make it in the end. The menu that we had looked at online had made us really determined to visit and the choice of Gluten Free options was huge. With multiple options for starters, mains and puddings. On our visit there were nine starters available for GF, eight mains & four grills, seven sides/breads, six desserts and a cheeseboard! Upon ordering we were not disappointed as the food was excellent. Many of the 'normal' menu items are Gluten Free dishes too, for example my wife chose the Pork and green peppercorn terrine with red onion chutney, which when ordered Gluten Free came with GF bread. For my starter I chose the Spiced pigeon breast with oriental coleslaw which was very good. The spicing of the pigeon was not overly done and was flavoursome, while the coleslaw/salad had a nice strong flavour. An interesting way to serve pigeon. For the main course I had the Braised ox cheek with lardons, mushrooms, caramelised round shallots and creamed parsnips and Emily had the Roasted duck breast, orange sauce, potato dauphinoise and buttered curly kale. Both were excellent. I know this as we had specified everything to be GF so I could have a taste of it too. We were quite full after the two courses but couldn't resist trying the Chocolate and nut cake with praline cream for dessert. This rounded off the meal nicely as it was not too heavy a dessert. The service was excellent and the presentation and taste of the food was great. The prices were reasonable too considering the quality of the ingredients and care in preparing the menu. According to the website the a la carte menus are updated every six weeks, so there will always be something different to try! As well as a Gluten Free menu there is also a Dairy Free menu available. We would definitely return.

Galvin La Chapelle
Nr Liverpool Street, London View On Map
I was lucky enough to have my last work lunch of 2011 and the first work lunch of 2012 at Galvin La Chapelle. The restaurant interior is really special and the service is exceptional, however, given that the restaurant has a Michelin star these are things that you would expect of a restaurant of this calibre. The restaurant caters well for those on a gluten-free diet and they even have (get this!) gluten-free bread on offer! For both lunches I had as an entree the Jerusalem artichoke velouté and for the main Crisp fillet of sea bream, parsnips, samphire & red wine jus. I can't quite remember what I had for dessert the first time but for dessert the second time I had the iced praline parfait & honey roasted bananas.

All I can say is that it was all absolutely delicious! On both these occasions I ate from the prix-fix menu (which is a very reasonable lunch menu), I have previously eaten from the a la carte menu and the dishes on the prix-fix menu are of the same yummy standard as the a la carte menu.

Off The Wall
Nr Liverpool Street, London View On Map
I had made the booking online and had mentioned in my booking that I was allergic to gluten. As soon as we sat down (and without me asking) our very friendly waitress pointed out the gluten-free options from the menu (I was impressed!). I ordered from their set lunch menu and had as an entree, the yellow chicory, smoked chicken, tarragon & caramelised walnuts and as a main, the pan-fried fillet of farmed sea bass, crushed new potatoes & sun blush tomato. Both dishes were absolutely delicious!

The only downer was I felt like some dessert afterwards and the only gluten-free option they had at the time was fruit and, well, I was wasn't in the mood to be healthy so I just had a cappuccino instead. I will definitely be returning to Off the Wall!

The Sharnbrook Hotel & VesuviO Restaurant
Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire View On Map
We visited VesuviO Restaurant along with some fellow members of the Beds & Mid Herts Coeliac UK Support Group for a Gluten Free meal. The Gluten Free menu at VesuviO is extensive and there were plenty of options for starters, main courses and desserts. We all chose Pizzas for main course and while the toppings were nice, the bases were a little too crispy, so you couldn't exactly pick them up to eat. My starter of Special Garlic Mushrooms (Garlic Mushrooms smothered in Napoletana sauce with mozzarella topping) was very good. The only complaint I would have is that when our starters were served the waitress brought out a basket of bread for us. However, she immediately noticed that this should not have been sent out for us. We didn't get served any Gluten Free bread as a substitute though. The restaurant is very reasonably priced and if I hadn't been so full from my starter and main course I would have had a pudding too.
