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.

La Tasca

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!

I highly recommend this place as there were no problems or hassles with my food.

The Post Office Tea Rooms
St Leonards, East Sussex View On Map
The Post Office Tea Rooms in St Leonards, East Sussex is one of the best places for Gluten Free options I have ever visited. The food, service and prices are great. We've visited Hastings on a number of occasions and always struggled to find many places to eat out Gluten Free, this has now changed with the discovery of the Post Office Tea Rooms. We were visiting the area for three days and we ate at the Tea Room on each of them as there was so much variety on offer. On my first lunchtime visit I opted for a dish from the Breakfast menu (served all day), this was the Scotch woodcock. I'd never heard of it before, but it was delicious. It consists of scrambled eggs on toast topped with anchovies and capers. It's a must try meal. I finished off with a dessert of the Lemon Sponge Cake. On our second visit I tried one of the special, the Lamb Hot Pot with Vegetables. My wife chose the Bubble & Squeak as we had seen a fellow diner order this the day before. The Hot Pot was a big portion full of lamb and potatoes and was very filling and very tasty. On our third visit I opted for the Bubble & Squeak, which comes topped with two fried eggs. Again it's a big portion of very tasty food, well prepared and at a great price. My wife chose the Cream Tea which looked very good. I also found out that GF Cheese Scones are always stocked so I'll be trying those next time too. The Post Office Tea Room run a number of events throughout the year, including Fondue Nights (Fridays), Knitting Nights (men welcome too) and special nights with food chosen from/inspired by a favourite/famous cook book. There is also a Christmas menu which can be Wheat and Gluten Free (including GF stuffing). I dined with my wife and friends who are not Coeliacs and they all said their food was great too. The fact that we were told that most of the dishes are made to be Gluten Free (e.g. no flour in the stews, and the dumplings can be made GF too) means that if you're dining there you'll be able to work your way through most of the menu. That's something I plan to do on my future visits. The Post Office Tea Rooms is not only a great example of a Tea Room from a bygone era, but is also a blueprint of how Coeliacs/Gluten Free can be catered for. I can't wait to go back again!

Salute @ The White Swan
Rothwell, West Yorkshire View On Map
Recommended by the Coeliac UK Society, Salute @ The White Swan in Rothwell is my go to restaurant for any occasion. I''ve been there for work lunches, to kick off nights out with friends, family meals, romantic meals... I'm not a coeliac myself but my sister-in-law is and their menu says they can provide any of their pasta dishes as a gluten free option (well worth the additional £2). The menu is MASSIVE and has so much more than pasta dishes...and they have a great wine selection too. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone, and knowing that I can recommend it to coeliac sufferers too is a great bonus. Oh, and they do all this as takeaway too!

The Old Harbour Fish & Chip Shop
Weymouth, Dorset View On Map
The Old Harbour Fish & Chip Shop in Weymouth is a great place to get Gluten Free Fish & Chips. The food tastes great, the service excellent and very good prices. There's always a friendly welcome from the team there too. Coeliacs/Gluten Free diners can choose from Cod, Haddock, Plaice, Rock & Chips and they also serve Cod Roe! On our recent visit I pigged out and tried the Cod & Chips (with two Cod Roe on the side) and on our visit the following day I had the Cod & Chips, with the double serving of Cod Roe too - it's something I really miss from my pre-Coeliac days. We visit Old Harbour Fish & Chip Shop every time we're in Weymouth (more often than not for the town's annual Miniature Golf competition) as it's such a great Chippy. Well worth a visit.

The Plan Café
City Centre, Cardiff View On Map
A sign on its window indicated that, according to The Independent, it is one of the top 50 coffee shops in Britain. We peered inside. The tiny café was open for breakfast. Not only that, the menu included vegetarian, vegan, organic, and gluten-free options. Looking at the GF cakes and pastries on the counter, I started salivating. "It's really gluten free?" I asked the tattooed woman behind the counter. She nodded reassuringly. "And you can even have gluten-free 'eggs and soldiers,' if you'd like." "What's that?" I asked. "A popular English breakfast. It's toasted bread, cut into sticks that you dip into soft-boiled eggs. We can make it for you with gluten-free bread." I sighed happily. Away from home, I had come home. Actually, The Plan Café was better than home, since at home I don't buy gluten-free bread.

Soon I was greedily thrusting my crisp, buttery gluten-free "soldiers" into runny yellow organic egg yolks and washing it all down with excellent Fair Trade cappuccino. It turns out the "barista" has won numerous awards for the café's coffees. Gary's organic oatmeal porridge with seasonal fruit and specialty green tea were equally good. Contented, we promised our friendly server that we would return for lunch. And return we did, reveling in the vegetarian chili, homemade soup, and gluten-free sandwiches.

Llys Meddyg
Newport, Pembrokeshire View On Map
We treated ourselves to several dinners at Llys Meddyg. A three-course dinner cost about $50, but it was worth it for the ingenuity, flavor, and presentation. The food was not only delicious, it was also amusing. An appetizer of "smoked salmon" consisted of locally cured salmon served under a large glass bell filled with "smoke"; "duck served three ways" included crispy thin slivers of duck breast prosciutto contrasting with creamy duck-liver mousse and pressed duck-liver terrine, drizzled with raspberry vinaigrette. The main courses were invariably good, and the desserts were memorable.

For dessert one evening I chose the warm, gluten-free chocolate mousse with homemade passion fruit sorbet, sprinkled with tiny candies that exploded in my mouth like fireworks. I could hear them crackling and popping as I crushed the tiny confections between my teeth. Gary chose "mock poached egg on toast." It was impossible to tell that it wasn't a real egg by looking at it. You had to taste it to discover what it really was-and oh, what a delicious surprise! The "egg white" was warm coconut mousse, filled with a hidden globe of bright yellow mango custard "yolk"; the "poached egg" was placed on top of a caramelized slice of pan perdu and accompanied by a color-coordinated scoop of mango sorbet. This edible trompe d'oeil was served with a cup of half cold, half hot green tea. Using some alchemical secret, the chef had divided the contents of the cup vertically in half-and the contents stayed divided until Gary had finished drinking it.

The restaurant at the Beachcroft Hotel (a Best Western) in Felpham, next to Bognor Regis, offers a good range of very tasty Gluten free food. I had Garlic Chicken to start, followed by the Lamb Cutles for a main course. They also had Gluten Free bread available, which is always a nice touch. Unfortunately they didn't have any Gluten Free desserts on offer. Good prices, great serivce and good food.

On our second visit to Abarbistro in Southsea we were able to have a brilliant four-course Gluten Free meal. We had Houmous and Tabouleh dips with GF bread (in place of Pittas) as an appetiser, for a starter I had the Ham Hock Terrine, followed by Belly Pork for main and a Creme Brule for dessert. An absolutely great dining experience.

The White Horse Pub
Southsea, Hampshire View On Map
The White Horse Pub near Southsea common doesn't offer a Gluten Free menu, however as the town has a severe lack of places to dine Gluten Free we asked at the bar if they could make anything. The barmaid knew about Coeliac Disease/Gluten Free and was able to tell me what would be OK, upon ordering the fact it had to be GF was relayed to the kitchen too. I opted for the Ham, Egg with mash rather than chips, and it tasted good and was OK.

The Cherry Tree
Jesmond, Newcastle-upon-Tyne View On Map
We dined at The Cherry Tree with friend's as part of a birthday celebration. As there was a large group of us we were ordering from a set menu rather than the a la carte option which struck fear when received in case none of the options were Gluten Free. However, after a quick phone call prior, we were reassured that 2 out of the 3 starters, all of the mains (albeit one with a slight change) and 2 of the desserts would be safe. Not bad considering that our friends had chosen the items for the menu without considering GF requirements.

We started with a tomato salad served with peach and feta, an odd combination that tasted great. We then had beautifully cooked rump steak with a friend ducks egg and hand cut chips for main before an elderflower jelly for dessert. All in they charged £30 per person for the set menu.

I did have a quick look at the a la carte menu and it isn't immediately obvious what is/isn't GF but the staff were all knowledgeable and based on the success rate we had, I am sure there are plenty of safe items on the a la carte as well.

Soho, London View On Map
Having recently experienced the seasonal deli delights of Ottolenghi's in Islington, I was very excited to hear about the opening of his more formal restaurant, though they call it a brassiere, Nopi.

I was presented with a gluten free menu, with that day's menu on. The menu changes with some frequency, as the the food is fresh seasonal fare. It's fantastic that somewhere that changes their menu regularly makes the effort to have a gluten free one that is up to date. I pretty much wanted to order every single thing on the menu.

When you are bored with all of the french and modern european fare, Nopi is a breath of fresh air. Totally inspired food. Asian and middle eastern influences, with fantastic ingredients and ingenious combinations. The silver mullet could not have been happier than beside a salad of green papaya, mint, mango and peanuts. The Presa iberica carpaccio with manouri and pine nuts was so pretty and colourful, and didn't need to be chewed, it melted in your mouth that easily. Clean and simple.

Seared prawns with fennel, white oregano and feta blew my mind - hearty yet delicate, such an exciting and addictive mix of flavours I could have licked the pan they were served in.

I'm not a big dessert fan but was tempted by my companion to share a palate cleansing sorbet - Melon and Elderflower. It positively sang and danced in my mouth making me shriek a little in delight. Totally my sort of dessert. Like all the food at Nopi, it was all about clear interesting flavours at their best.

I am now totally addicted and in love, and am plotting on how I can eat Ottolenghi's delights weekly without going broke. If you fancy taking me out to dinner there, let me know. That is, if I ever find my way out of the marvelous mirrored bathroom.

The Compass Bar
Leith, Edinburgh View On Map
The Compass Bar has been a favourite since I found it over a year ago. It's more of a restaurant than a bar, and has a variety of nuveau-Scottish dishes and friendly service. I've never been disappointed. They don't have a separate gluten-free menu, but many of their dishes are gluten-free, or can be made gluten-free. This itself is not unusual. But I was pleasantly surprised last week when the server came out with some gluten-free bread. That was a nice touch.

Chancellors Restaurant at The Gonville Hotel
Cambridge, Cambridgeshire View On Map
On a day out in Cambridge we decided to check if the restaurant in the Best Western Gonville Hotel could offer Gluten Free food. It could! The waitress just had to check with the kitchen staff and came back to inform us that the vast majority of the menu could be OK to eat, some with a few changes. I was also told that they had Gluten Free bread and rolls. The restaurant is only open on a Friday and Saturday, but there is also a Brasserie that is open from Sunday to Thursday (that I guess would be OK for Gluten Free dining). My wife and I both opted for the Duck Terrine to start. Mine came with a Gluten Free bread roll, while my wife's came with the Melba Toast. This was a great starter and very tasty indeed. For main course I ordered the Pork Shoulder with Sweet Potato Mash and a Pork Jus, my wife ordered the Lamb Leg Steak and both were delicious. As both dished were Gluten Free I was able to try some of the Lamb dish too, and as it was a big serving it didn't really make a dent ;-) We were too full to have a dessert, as is so often the case, but most of the items on offer were OK to eat. The service and food at the restaurant was great and we would visit again.
