Naturally Nutty
, Manchester View On Map
While visiting Manchester we had a wander around the Christmas Markets. The Naturally Nutty Fudge stall had a line on their sign that stated that all of the products were Gluten Free. Speaking with the stallholder she told me that they used to make some non-Gluten Free products but found that they could make those Gluten Free too, so now are able to be sure of no cross-contamination. I bought a mixed bag of Fudge pieces and very tasty they were too.

Albert's Shed
Castlefields, Manchester View On Map
Ahead of our visit to Manchester I had contacted Albert's Shed to check if they could do Gluten Free food and had received a response saying that they could. We double checked that it would be OK on our arrival and the staff member we spoke to was aware of Gluten Free/Coeliac Disease so we decided to eat there. I chose the Roast Loin of Venison which is topped with Cropwell Bishop Stilton Cheese and served with Dauphinoise Potatoes and French Beans. I was unable to have the Port and Blackberry Jus as the waiter had informed the kitchen I needed to have the food Gluten Free and the Jus contained wheat. Despite not being able to have the accompanying sauce the dish was still very tasty. I liked the addition of the rich cheese to the meat, it really added to it and wasn't too melty, or too crumbly. My wife opted for the Pot Roast Beef which looked amazing and I'm told it was delicious. As we were eating quite late we didn't order a starter or dessert, but when we visit Manchester again we'd bear it in mind as a place to get some good Gluten Free food. The restaurant looks great, with a large patio area overlooking the canal, and is in the middle of the Castlefields area of Manchester. It's well worth a visit with plenty of historic spots to look around, museums and pubs to choose from too.

Brighton, East Sussex View On Map
Metrodeco in Kemp Town are showcasing gorgeous mini Carrot Cakes, great for a treat or as a gift to the gluten free person in your life. Metrodeco are committed to stocking gluten free food there. There is a lot of demand in Brighton and only the usual two cakes are normally available and no savouries, things are selling well so I shall be there for the long term.

Everly's Continental Cafe
Yarm-on-Tees, Teesside View On Map
While in Yarm-on-Tees we couldn't find anywhere that had a dedicated Gluten Free menu, but when I asked in the restaurant One-O-Four they sauid they could cater for Gluten Free options. I chose the Pork Belly with Root Vegetables and Apple Sauce. It was very nice, if a little on the small size portion-wise. A few more vegetables would have added to the dish. The menu offered a range of dishes and the service was very good. The other food served looked good and I am told it tasted great.

The Book Inn - The Book Cafe
Leigh-on- Sea, Essex View On Map
The Cafe at The Book Inn on Leigh-on-Sea, Essex offers a selection of Gluten Free cakes. On our trip to Leigh-on-Sea on Saturday, our first visit to the town, we were very pleased to see that "gluten free cake"was being advertised on the board outside the shop. I went for the Chocolate Cake and I also bought a Chocolate Brownie to have later in the afternoon after our nice long walk back to Southend-on-Sea. The cakes are well priced and if I'd had room, and time, I might have tried more! The Book Inn bookshop was well stocked too and the split between the bookshop and cafe is very well done. One of the walls of the Cafe was also being used as a display for a local photographer, David Shields, and showed his Football and Seaside montages. A very pleasant experience in all.

Parmo's Italian
Middlesbrough, Teesside View On Map
While up on Teesside we stayed at the Best Western Middlesbrough and asked when we checked in if the restaurant could do Gluten Free food. We were told they could, so booked a table. The choice for Coeliacs is very limited, but I did have a very nice Fillet Steak with seasonal vegetables. Even though I'd stated that I'd prefer the vegetables rather than the chips (which were not Gluten Free, and rarely are anywhere) I was still served a bowl of chips. When I mentioned this to the waitress she took them away and brought out the vegetables. The Parmo in the name of the restaurant is a nod to the famous Teesside dish of 'Parmo', unfortunately these are not Gluten Free so I'll be having a go at making one at home!

Churchills Chippy
Southend-on-Sea, Essex View On Map
While walking along the Eastern Esplanade in Southend-on-Sea we noticed that a new Fish & Chip shop had opened since our last visit. We had a look in the window and I noticed that a small sign showed that they could do Gluten Free batter. I asked the staff and they could do Gluten Free batter. Before I ordered I ask how the Fish was fried and if they used a separate fryer for the Gluten Free orders and was told that the didn't. Unfortunately I could not order. A shame that they were going to the effort of making up Gluten Free batter, only to then cross contaminate by using the same oil/fryer as regular orders.

Saf Restaurant
Shoreditch, London View On Map
I'd heard about Saf from a friend who did a raw food course earlier this year. Saf stands for "simple authentic food" and also means "pure" in Turkish. The theory behind the raw food movement is that raw foods are more nutritious than those which have been cooked and consequently lost their nutrients. Heating food is OK as long as the temperature stays below around 46C, on the Saf menu all items heated to over 48C are marked.The décor of Saf Shoreditch is clean and modern. The restaurant extended back some way and I could see a pleasant looking courtyard garden out at the rear. The waiter advised a new menu had been introduced the day before my visit. In 2010 Saf Shoreditch won the Evening Standard award for best vegetarian restaurant in London.There was a good range of starters, salads, sandwiches and main courses and the gluten free items (of which there were many) were clearly noted on the menu. I chose the Thai red curry which included butternut squash, aubergine, okra and tofu in a spiced coconut curry sauce served with black rice on the side.

Would I go back? Yes, the food was delicious. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed; I felt totally at ease dining there alone. However next time I would choose something more filling and not go on a day when I needed fuel for a high impact aerobics class later that evening!

Handmade Burger Co
, Chain View On Map
The Handmade Burger Co shows on the menu that many of the burgers can be made/served Gluten Free, so I gave it a try. The ordering system sees you choose your food and then pay for it at a till, rather than waiter/waitress service. However, I asked the staff member who showed us to our seats about Gluten Free options and she said that all of the burgers would be OK without the buns, or by not adding certain sauces. I was told to tell the person taking my order at the till and that they would be able to answer questions about the side dishes too (which are large portions that are enough for two to share). I opted for a Bacon & Cheese Burger, the Fries & Homemade Coleslaw. The staff member made sure the order went through as 'Gluten Free' and said that they would make the meal without the bun and with no Worcestershire Sauce. I also asked about the Fries and was told that they were cooked in a separate fryer that was not used for any other gluten containing food items. The Handmade Coleslaw was also Gluten Free. The food came out and it was really tasty and so nice to be able to have a Burger and Chips. Eating the burger without the bun was not a problem as the food was so filling anyway, who needs any stodgy starch filler! Well worth a try and great to know the staff have been made aware of Gluten Free options.

Cafe Andaluz
2 Locations, Glasgow View On Map
While in Glasgow I headed to the Spanish Tapas restaurant Cafe Andaluz in the city centre knowing that they were able to cater for Coeliacs and have Gluten Free options. I had eaten at the branch of Cafe Andaluz in Edinburgh in August and had a great meal. Our server was aware of Gluten Free option, and the menu has 'GF' denoting the many many Gluten Free dishes on offer. There are so many dishes to try it takes quite a while to whittle down the choices to just three or four tapas dishes. As my friends were sharing a Paella (all of the three on the menu are GF) and had Garlic Bread to start, I had Vierras con Serrano (Seared king scallops with basil creamed leeks & crisp Serrano ham) which was three larger scallops and a great choice to start and well recommended by my waitress. The three Tapas I had for 'main' were Patatas Bravas (Fried potatoes mixed in a spicy tomato sauce & alioli), Carne de Res Picante (Spicy beef on a bed of rocket with a Manchego cheese & chorizo dressing), and a Paella Valenciana (a combination of rice, chicken, pork, shellfish & seafood, flavoured with saffron) The Mayador Cider served was a nice accompaniment to the meal too. I definitely had no room left for any dessert which, oddly, is the only section on the menu with no Gluten Free options. There are three Cafe Andalaz restaurants (two in Glasgow and the Edinburgh branch). I can't wait to give the other Glasgow one a try next year.

PJ.s Bar And Grill
Covent Garden, London View On Map
I had a great meal at PJ's in Covent Garden on a recent revisit. The menu still has plenty of Gluten Free options, with at least one starter and one dessert too. I chose to go for a main and hope I'd have room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding dessert. The main course I chose was the Rump of Lamb served with Dauphinoise Potatoes and Spinach, a dish I've eaten there before and one that is very tasty. You get a very good portion too. I did manage to have room for dessert and it was a treat to be able to have a pudding like Sticky Toffee Pudding while dining out. As PJ's is in the West End they have entertained a lot of stars over the years, as you can see by the photos of them visiting dotted around the restaurant, as well as the many gold plaques lined up around the tables. On my visit I sat on the Su Pollard and Amanda Barrie table! If you're a Coeliac and heading to London then I suggest you make a visit to PJ's where the food and service are very good, at prices that are reasonable too.

Heathwick House
Weymouth, Dorset View On Map
After my hubby was diagnosed with the coeliac condition last year we have been looking for an establishment that caters for gluten free diets and at last we found it. Nothing is too much trouble; chocolate gluten free biscuits in the room, sausages for breakfast even pancakes if you want and toast yes toast (my husband was completely made up !!) also all the nice touches like home made preserves were lovely. The hotel and rooms are also very clean and well presented; additionally things like glasses for wine were put in the room when Ruth noticed we had wine on the side. I would recommend to anyone perfect, quiet and accommodating.

Honest Burgers
Brixton Village, London View On Map
We arrived at Honest Burgers to find that as a result of a delayed delivery that they hadn't quite opened up. In retrospect, this was lucky for us since the tables would certainly have gone and we'd have joined the queue which, although moving, I never saw less than 10 people in it at any point. The menu is very straightforward. On offer was a choice of 5 burgers, including one vegetarian, plus a special. The burgers range in price from £6.50 to £9 (for that day's special) and this price includes a side of triple cooked rosemary salt chips.

The main reason why we chose to eat at Honest Burgers is that they serve their burgers in a gluten free bun from the WAGfree Bakery. Yep, this was one burger I didn't have to have with salad instead of the bun. The bad news was that the buns weren't ready when we arrived. The waitress said they'd be about 20 minutes and did we want to wait? If we did she'd put the ticket for the order on the side and would check back on how they were progressing. I looked at the queue, remembered the hour's walk I'd had to get there, thought about having a burger in a bun and decided to be a bit less British. Um, actually, yes please, I would like to wait for a gluten free bun. "No problem" said the waitress.

I went for the cheese burger with Stilton. So how did it taste? The burger patties are made from 35 day Ginger Pig chuck steak and are served medium rare. The burger was delicious, juicy and perfectly seasoned. The red onion relish was sweet and this complimented the Stilton which had melted on top of the burger perfectly. The triple cooked chips were equally amazing. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Cooked with rosemary and salt they were simply delicious. What about the WAGfree sesame bun? It was SO worth the wait! Light and sprinkled with sesame seeds, I was impressed with the texture as well as the taste of this gluten free bun. It did not crumble at all. This is definitely eating with your hands territory so what you don't need is a crumbly bun. The WAGfree sesame bun, however didn't suffer from any crumbling which is a common problem with gluten free bread. It was the perfect partner for my juicy burger. What I really liked about the Honest burger was that it was the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. I came away feeling satisfied but not stuffed. I should also say the service here was fantastic. Despite us wanting to wait for a gluten free bun and therefore taking up one of their precious tables in the process, they volunteered to take off the cost of our drinks from the bill. This was definitely not required by us, I was really grateful to have a burger in a gluten free bun.

The only drawback - and this is really a result of their popularity -was the large queue of people waiting for a table. I felt a little uneasy as we waited for the delivery of the gluten free buns from WAGfree with the eyes of 15 people in the queue checking out why our food was not being served! If (like me) you don't like queuing, come early. But make sure you do come. Honest Burgers is honestly brilliant.

Pollen Street Social
Oxford Circus, London View On Map
It was my birthday last week and this time last year I had my first taste of Michelin starred food at Maze, London, by Gordon Ramsay. I was instantly converted. The Head chef at the time, Jason Atherton, crafted some simply stunning dishes. One year on, I'm a year older and Jason Atherton has opened his own restaurant, Pollen Street Social. It's rapidly becoming one of London's hottest restaurants and just before we dined there, it was awarded a Michelin star within 6 months of opening.

We went on a Wednesday lunch time, the place was packed but had a real buzz and atmosphere. The service was impeccable from the moment we entered. I informed our waiter that I was gluten free and he ran through what options I could have and what they could adapt. We decided to go for the very reasonably priced lunch menu (£25 per head). For starter, I went for the pressed ham hock, coco bean, squid, piccalilli gel and wild watercress. The dish tasted as stunning as it looked.

Jason Atherton takes a lot of inspiration from Spanish cuisine and that was clear in my main course. I had roasted black bream on a bed of Catalan paella with sprouting brocolli and black olive. This dish was less about inventive cooking and more about sheer flavour.

I'm not normally much of a dessert person, but I need to save a few superlatives for this! Unfortunately, the two desserts on the lunch menu weren't gluten free, which gave me the rest of the menu to choose from! It was an easy choice, I love rice pudding and judging by the previous courses I knew this one would be something special. It all worked together brilliantly, easily one of the best desserts I've had.

You're given a little something to take away with you when you leave, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for anyone thinking of going! After only 6 months, Jason Atherton has created a very special place indeed, Pollen Street Social has a very bright future ahead.

They provide Spanish style tapas meals although the menu has changed recently and there are now no options to have a meal that is not tapas. Having said that, the menu is great with all gluten free options clearly marked, the staff bent over backwards to help me with my meal. A few years back I had a lunchtime party for twenty people at this restaurant and they were very accomodating, provided a totally gluten free menu with the exception of the bread, haha ... everyone had to live my life for the day! Excellent meal and service on that occasion

The Seine Rigger
Banstead, Surrey View On Map
A nippy October evening found me in Banstead, Surrey in search of fish and chips. But just not any fish and chips, gluten free fish and chips. I'm not sure how long it is since I last had fish and chips but since I don't have a deep fat fryer at home, it must be a really long time. I had heard amazing reports of The Seine Rigger in Banstead and the high quality of their gluten free fish and chips.

The Seine Rigger operates a very successful take away fish and chip as well as a restaurant. As we approached the restaurant we were greeted with a huge queue of people waiting for their takeaway fish and chips. On a Thursday night, at 7pm. A very promising sight indeed. Peering into the restaurant we saw it was very busy and there were only 2 tables left free, one of which had thankfully been reserved for us. We settled at the table and I decided to go traditional. Cod, chips and shared portion of mushy peas. In order to provide truly gluten free fish and chips the Seine Rigger have recently bought a separate standalone fryer where all the gluten free fish can be cooked without any chance of cross contamination.

When my gluten free fish and chips arrived I was impressed. And very glad that I'd barely eaten that day! The cod was chunky, fat and firm. The batter tasted to me just as I remembered regular batter tasting and it stayed crispy even when it took me a fair while to eat it as we were chatting so much.

Chef James later explained to us that their fish comes directly from Billingsgate and they always use fresh fish, never frozen. Given how busy the take away and restaurant was I assume their turnaround must be short on using the fish too. Chef James said he'd prefer people to let them know in advance if you'd like to order gluten free fish and chips so they can prepare the batter fresh. However this isn't essential and if you go there on a spur of the moment decision, providing gluten free batter won't be a problem.

For dessert, I didn't even need to look at the menu. I'd already heard they offered a gluten free pineapple fritter. Wow.cWhen the pineapple fritter was placed in front of me I could barely contain my excitement. It was, frankly, a taste sensation. The gluten free batter for the fritter was slightly different to that of the fish. It was more biscuit like in texture, I think from the sugar in the pineapple. The service was fun and friendly. I guess some restaurants would consider us to be the troublesome table. Three women all needing gluten free food. Despite our repeated questions, we were looked after fantastically well by Kim. For the record, the tartare sauce is gluten free and is made by the restaurant. The ketchup is made by Heinz and is gluten free. Really looking forward to the next time!
