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.

Bamburgh Castle Inn
Seahouses, Northumberland View On Map
We have been going on holiday to nearby Beadnell for 6 years now but as we go self-catered, we had never really explored any of the local restaurants. Then shortly before we left this year I read about the Bamburgh Castle Inn on a message board and it seemed to good an opportunity to pass up.

We headed to the Inn for lunch as as there were five of us, took a table in the corner although there are some great views over Seahouses harbour. The menu is peppered with items marked 'GF' as they are either inherently Gluten free or they can offer a Gluten Free option. Between us we tried the Mussels in tarragon & hollandaise sauce, Kipper Pâté and Pork Loin served in a cider and honey mustard sauce. All of the meals were huge (the two fish dishes were technically starters but would easily pass as lunch!) and of good quality whilst of a good price also!

If you are in Northumberland then I would definitely check out this place for great, gluten free food with great views and on the assumption that we head there again next year, we'll definitely check out again!

Abbe Guest House
Lowestoft, Suffolk View On Map
We booked into the Abbe Guest House in Lowestoft, Suffolk for a stay in the town to compete in the annual UK Thumb Wrestling Championships. I was able to have a Gluten Free Breakfast on my stay, and the landlady had also baked some GF bread for me to have on my stay too. A very nice touch indeed. Well worth a stay if you're a Coeliac and staying in Lowestoft, the Guest House is on the road parallel to the seafront.

Hamilton's Restaurant and Bar
Lowestoft, Suffolk View On Map
We visited Hamilton's Restaurant & Bar in Lowestoft, Suffolk for two evening meals while on a stay in the town for the annual UK Thumb Wrestling Championships. We had enquired in advance if they could cater for Coeliacs and offer Gluten Free options and had got a positive response. We had a great meal and I had an excellent meal of Rib Eye steak, served with sautéd red onions, a flat mushroom topped with a balsamic roasted tomato. I then followed this with Eton Mess for dessert, which was really tasty. We also returned on Saturday night and I once again opted for the same again. It was nice to know that the chef and staff had also checked further into what was/was not Gluten Free after my first visit as I was offered a wider-selection of desserts on the second visit. Well worth a visit for some nice, well cooked food, at very good prices.

Merrivale Tea Rooms
Great Yarmouth, Norfolk View On Map
While on a day trip to Great Yarmouth, Norfolk we went to the Old Penny Arcade Museum and Merrivale Model Village and noticed on the chalkboards and signs outside the Merrivale Tea Rooms that they offer a 'Large Gluten Free Menu'. And they do indeed. The menu itself shows lots of items marked 'GF' and when ordering we found out that other dishes could be adapted if necessary. The cakes, pies and pastries etc. were home made, and all of the cooking was done in separate cookers/fryers, meaning I was able to have Fish & Chips (which was also served with a good side-salad and lots of peas), it was a very big portion indeed. As there were so many GF options available I was greedy and also ordered the Mushroom, Potato, Tomato and Onion Pasty, which was very well made and very very tasty. After our food had settled we headed off for a paddle in the sea and a wander around the Pleasure Beach and then went back to Merrivale for a Cake. The choice again was huge and I opted for the Chocolate Cake. It made our trip to Great Yarmouth extra special to visit such a nice Tea Room, with excellent service and a wide-range of GF options! It was such a pleasant spot to have a nice lunch. The Merrivale Tea Rooms were established in 1903 and this year won the Tea Room of the Year Award! Well deserved.

The big Fish
Hockley Heath, Warwickshire View On Map
Had a brilliant portion of Gluten Free Fish & Chips from The big Fish in Hockley Heath, everything you should expect from Fish & Chips. Served with Salt and Non-Brewed Condiment too, very nice. I would visit again. I've also heard that all The big Fish shops have now installed specific separate fryers for GF Fish & Chips, great news

Lauriston Place, Edinburgh View On Map
Finding a quick gluten free lunch can be hard. Most places have some form of sandwich. If you're lucky, you can get a salad that isn't very filling, or a stuffed potato that will put you to sleep for the rest of the afternoon. If you're near Lauriston Place, there's the Tupiniquim Brazilian Kiosk.

The kiosk serves savory and sweet Brazilian-style crepes, made from their own blend of gluten-free flours from a mix of Doves Farm flours with rice and maize flour. You can get the crepes to take away, but there are tables to sit outside next to the kiosk, where you can get a salad with your crepes. They also have coffee. Student discounts are available.

The people who work at Tupiniquium are friendly, and it's enjoyable to watch them prepare the crepes fresh to order. I'm partial to savory foods in general, and am a fan of their "Release the chicken" crepe which has a spicy chicken with cheese, sweetcorn and palm hearts.

You can find Tupiniquim where Forest Road and Teviot Place meet Lauriston Place, across the street from the RBS.

Zulu Lounge
Morningside, Edinburgh View On Map
The Zulu Lounge is South African cafe, though a bit smaller - "cosy" is the word they use on their site. They'll make sandwiches using gluten-free bread and have gluten-free muffins. They also make red bush tea variants of espresso/americano/latte.

New Xi'an
Morningside, Edinburgh View On Map
For Chinese take way, there's the wonderful New Xi'an. The food is excellent for a carry out, and they explicitly highlight what items on the menu are or can be made gluten-free.

Cafe Blush
Morningside, Edinburgh View On Map
Cafe Blush is a new favourite. The shop serves omelettes, soups, sandwiches and pastries with gluten-free options for all of them. (The pastries apparently come from a place in Marchmont called Madame Bouvy's Tartes.) The shop is light, comfortable (though it can get crowded), and has free wifi. And the food is good, of course.

The Dogs

In the New Town, there's The Dogs on Hanover Street. It features "nouveau Scottish" cuisine, and they have an alternate gluten-free menu (as well as dairy-free and vegetarian menus) if you ask.

Waiting Room
Morningside, Edinburgh View On Map
I've recently tried the Waiting Room. It's an American-style sports bar/restaurant (think TGI Fridays without the flair, or Applebees), but they have a large menu with many gluten-free options.

The Barge Inn
Seend Cleeve, Wiltshire View On Map
We stopped off at The Barge Inn in the village of Seend Cleeve on a Friday night and found the bar and restaurant to be nice and busy. The pub is situated on a canal so gets lots of passing trade. There was a very good menu with lots of Gluten Free Options. I had the GF version of the Chicken and Tarragon Pie, which came with home made Chips! It was very nice indeed to be able to eat chips that were \'safe\' for a change, rather than having to have boiled or mashed potatoes. For dessert I had the very tasty Flourless Chocolate Cake. We would definitely return.
