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.

Otto Cafe Regent
Cambridge, Cambridgeshire View On Map
We noticed a blackboard sign outside the Otto Cafe Regent in Cambridge that showed it offered Gluten Free Meals. The menu shows a good selection of Gluten Free dishes. We didn't eat there as we were not that hungry at the time, but have noted it for our next visit to Cambridge.

1066 Cake Stand
Hastings, East Sussex View On Map
The Cake Stand stall is at Hastings Town Centre Market on Thursdays and sells a selection of Gluten Free Cakes and Savouries. They also do Vegan options and can make Egg and Diary Free Cakes too. I really loved the Kugel (German Potato Cake). Can't wait to buy some more on my next trip to Hastings. Very friendly and knowledgeable people and well worth visiting for some very tasty food. They haven't got a website, but you can find them on Facebook for more info.

Mezze at the Green Dragon
Downend, Bristol View On Map
A range of delicious vegetarian GF mezze dishes on their menu. Friendly service and delicious food. Not sure why there's no GF meat dishes though!! (but you could probably request them to be made).

Harbour Side, Bristol View On Map
A good selection of English/Mediterranean foods. Will make GF food on request. Glad to see more sea food back on the menu (considering harbour-side location). New soft furnishings mean there's no longer a warehouse feel to the place. Great cocktail bar.

Thali Cafe
4 Locations, Bristol View On Map
Authentic healthy fresh indian food (i.e. not the greasy imposter you normally get in English Indian restaurants). Dairy free Thali option. Ask for GF. Got a great BBC review for their re-fillable Tiffin takeaway service. Wonderful chutneys. Great atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended. Ooo and now they do cakes too.

Pizza Provencale
Clifton, Bristol View On Map
Lovely atmosphere. Home-made GF pizza bases and a range of GF topppings (although if you want low-lactose cheese like cheddar, you should ring in advance). Awesome BBQ chicken. Mmmmm. They also do takeaway service.

Las Iguanas

Have GF food labelled on their menu. Limited choice of carbs as their potato dishes and fries are not GF, but the peri chicken is tasty and the Quinoa, orange and beetroot salad sounds nice.

Skegness, Lincolnshire View On Map
If you are hungry and in the neighbourhood then this is a good place to stop off for some lunch. Food is home cooked, nothing fancy, the place is clean and the staff friendly. Most important, if like me you need to eat Gluten free food then Poppy's has a whole page of the menu dedicated to this with a wide choice including puddings. I believe the owner is Gluten Free.

Best Western Kings Manor Hotel
City East, Edinburgh View On Map
We booked into the Kings Manor Hotel as they could offer Gluten Free food in their restaurant. We checked in quite late and while we were doing so the manager mentioned that the restaurant also had Gluten Free rolls that we could request with our meal. A nice touch. An even nicer touch was found when we got to our room, as a box of Gluten Free Chocolate Biscuits were waiting for me, along with a letter explaining that the restaurant could offer Gluten Free items, what they were, and also the items available at breakfast. It was very pleasing indeed to see the effort the Kings Manor went to make our stay there comfortable. We had two meals in Lauders Restaurant at the Kings Manor Hotel. The menu has a 'c' next to any dishes which are 'Coeliac Friendly'. As I am always as careful as can be when taking the risk of dining out I asked a few questions, stated clearly I was a Coeliac and checked the items listed. On the first night of our stay I had the KMH BBQ Ribs to start, followed by a huge Rib Eye Steak. I chose the Mash Option as it was marked GF on the sides option. The 'c' marked menu says the Steak would be served with fries, but on the sides menu fries were not marked as 'c'. After the big meal I was too stuffed to get a dessert too. On our second visit I again had the BBQ Ribs, which were once again excellent. I then opted for the Coq au Vin which was marked as 'c' on the menu, but the waiter came back after taking the order to inform me that he had checked and the gravy/sauce had flour in it. I changed my order to the baked cod, and chose mashed potatoes to accompany it. Once again the meal was very tasty. This time I was able to fit in a dessert and chose the Creme brule. This was not marked with a 'c' but I guessed that was because it was served with handmade cookies. I checked with the waiter and the kitchen confirmed the Creme brule was Gluten Free and that they could serve it with Gluten Free biscuits instead. A very tasty dessert indeed and very filling, especially with the biscuit! Perhaps the restaurant could rework the menu to make it simpler for Coeliacs to order, often a separate Gluten Free menu works very well. A few GF options clearly listed and done well is better than lots of options listed unclearly and done less well. All in all our stay at the Kings Manor Hotel was very pleasant. It's only 7 minutes by train to Waverly Station in Edinburgh City Centre, plus it's just a twenty minute or so walk to 'Edinburgh's seaside' of Portobello & Joppa and a little further on to Musselburgh. The hotel also has a very good Leisure facility with a Pool, Sauna, Steam Room and Gym.

Café Andaluz
George Street, Edinburgh View On Map
While in Edinburgh we managed to get a table at Café Andaluz in the city centre. We had tried to eat there on our first day in Edinburgh but as it was very busy for the festival we had to get a table on the Monday before we flew home. It was worth the wait. The Gluten Free options were extensive, the food was very tasty and there was very good service too. We chose seven different Tapas dishes and all of them were excellent. I could have quite happily stayed there for longer and tried every Gluten Free item on the menu (there is plenty of choice). For dessert I had the Creme brule which was the biggest I had ever soon, it's a seriously big version! The Mohitos were very good too.

The Quay Bar and Restaurant
Musselburgh, East Lothian View On Map
While promenading along the coast we popped into the Quay Bar and Restaurant in Musselburgh and noticed that they offered Gluten Free options (although the menu said 'Glutin'!?). The food was predominantly Indian, but there seemed to be some good options for Coeliacs dining there. We didn't eat there but have noted it for our next trip to the area.

Cooks Collection
Ampthill, Bedfordshire View On Map
While making a flying visit to Ampthill in Bedfordshire today I walked past the Cooks Collection cookware shop and noticed a sign in the window that said they served Gluten Free in their Tea Room. I headed inside and had a look on the menu/blackboard and a chat with the staff who showed me the Gluten Free Cupcakes, Cookies and Cake. They also have Gluten Free Rolls, and the soup was GF too :-) The Tea Room is open seven days a week too. I had a Cupcake which was very tasty indeed.

Canal View Bed and Breakfast
Saxilby, Lincolnshire View On Map
Our hosts were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was beautifully decorated and the ensuite was the largest and the best of any B and B that I have stayed in. I require a special diet and they even found biscuits that I could eat! Breakfast was excellent and the gluten free sausage was delicious!

The location was ideal as a base to explore Lincoln from, with a convenient train service and I would recommend you stay here. It is excellent value for money

Johnsons Butchers and Farm Shop
, Cambridgeshire View On Map
We headed to Johnsons Butchers and Farm Shop as we'd heard that it was home to a Crocodile Enclosure (!?), which it certainly was. It's also home to a good Butchers, which stocks Gluten Free sausages, and a Farm Shop which stocks a range of Gluten Free foods. I picked up a few cereals I hadn't seen elsewhere. The Farm is also home to a Tea Room - the brilliantly named 'Eccentric Englishman Tearoom'. Unfortunately we arrived too late to check it out.

Wood Green Animal Shelter
Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire View On Map
We were visiting the Wood Green Animal Shelter for the Festival of Cards event and on visiting the canteen/restaurant noticed they sold Gluten Free products (we first spotted a sign saying 'Gluten Free Bread Available'). Unfortunately by the time we got to the restaurant all the sandwiches and cakes had sold out, but the member of staff said they normally do have a large selection. I noticed the site is also available for events, so may be worth noting for Coeliacs looking for a venue in the area.
