Passage To India
Norwich, Norfolk View On Map
Found a fanstastic Indian restaurant in Norwich over the weekend which really catered for gluten free. It shouldn't really be that difficult, as most Indian food uses little flour, and where it does, this tends to be gram flour (made from chickpeas) or coconut flour, both of which are gluten free, but you need to be certain. The first restaurant I phoned was far from certain and when I asked if they catered for gluten free, I was just given a response of 'We do Indian food", which wasn't hugely helpful. However, I then phoned Passage to India, where I was informed that most things on the menu were gluten free and they would be able to let me know if not.

We went early on Saturday evening and were the first people in. The decor and crockery were a little dated, and the food was equally as traditional but tasted fantastic. It was great value for money too, we had popadoms and a pickle tray, Chicken Tikka Massala, a Dopiaza, Saag Paneer, Pilau rice and drinks all for under £25. The Saag Paneer was really well spiced and the Tikka and Dopiaza distinctive and full of homemade flavour. The service was attentive and welcoming. Quite comfortably the best Indian I've had in Norwich so far!

Bryn Guest House
Conwy, Conwy County (Snowdonia) View On Map
This really is the best guest house. A great location and we were able to walk up Conwy mountain without moving the car. A must for anyone who loves walking and enjoys great views. This was our 2nd stay at Bryn and it certainly won't be our last. Alison caters so well for special diets and the selection at breakfast is fantastic. If you are Coeliac you must stay here. Gluten free nibbles in room as well as a good selection of tea, coffee etc. Our only complaint was that we had to leave.

Plas Madoc
Llandudno, Conwy County (Snowdonia) View On Map
We stayed at Plas Madoc for 3 nights having stayed here on 2 other occasions. We would not consider staying anywhere else in Llandudno as we are provided with everything we need here. As my husband is a Coeliac it is very important to us that he is catered for and Anita & Gary have got this sorted and provide an excellent breakfast.Very quiet part of town and just a gentle stroll to the pier and shops etc. Also able to park car in their private car park which is also very important as parking in Llandudno can prove very difficult.

Ditto Restaurant
Whitby, North Yorkshire View On Map
We cannot say enough about this super little understated jewel in Whitby! Our evening was made by the wonderful delights on offer at this restaurant and the fixed price menu. Greeted by wholesome bread and delightful olive tapenade for me and for my husband who is a coeliac they provided delicious gluten free rolls to accompany his tapenade. We telephoned in advance, as we always do, to ask if coeliacs were catered for. The menu is mouthwatering! This is simply how food should be presented. This restaurant cooks with fresh ingredients and the menu glows with tantalising choice. Our starters were delicious and the mains were wonderful and accompanied with amazing vegetables. The duck was tender and cooked to taste, the sea bream enjoyed by my husband was stunning. We finished with the sensational palate tickler being the rhubarb and ginger compote topped by a melt in your mouth creme brulee..... to die for! The service at this restaurant was impeccable, no rushing you here and the atmoshere something to treasure. Please go and enjoy this little jewel.... you will not be disappointed!

Ebury Wine Bar and Restaurant
Westminster/Belgravia, London View On Map
We had dinner there with my inlaws. My mother in law is coeliac which we didn't advise them when we booked but we were pleased when they showed a gluten free menu. To the delight of my mother in law, they even had gluten free bread The food was very good and there was an honest, very well balanced menu, and a very good, not too extensive wine list.

Deep Blue Fish and Chip Shop
, Chain View On Map
On the way home from a great Minigolfing Roadtrip to Liverpool and New Brighton we stopped off at the Deep Blue Fish & Chip Shop in Woburn Sands, as every Sunday and Monday they offer Gluten Free Fish & Chips. We've eaten there once before and enjoyed it, so were looking forward to it. We found out that this time they also offered Gluten Free Battered Sausages and GF Curry Sauce :-) So that's what I had with my LARGE Cod and Chips. Very tasty and worth a look if you're near Woburn Sands/Woburn/Milton Keynes. There were a few others ordering Gluten Free while we were in there too. The food is cooked in a separate fryer from the main one, and different utensils used.

Lunya
Liverpool, Merseyside View On Map
On a weekend away in Liverpool we were walking past Lunya (near the Liverpool ONE shopping centre) and spotted on the menu that a number of dishes were marked with a 'W' - this stood for 'Food made with Wheat' and 'Not Suitable for Coeliacs'. We decided to give it a try. Unfortunately the Lunchtime menu did not use the 'W' symbol and our waiter seemed unsure of what was/was not Gluten Free. He said he could ask the chef once we had made our choices. All of the sandwiches could be made with Genius GF bread, but we opted for the 3 course tapas (with bread) - I asked for the Chef to prepare any 3 GF dishes for me to try. Our order came out in a bit of a haphazard way. The non-GF food was tasty (according to Emily) and the GF food was very nice. However, neither of us got any bread (GF or otherwise). I was also served Battered Calamari at first, until the waitress noticed the mistake - I was served a batterless version a little later, but didn't touch it as I was wary. It was a shame that the meal didn't live up to initial expectations - some staff seemed to know what was OK, while others were very unsure. I had no ill effects (hopefully), but the restaurant could do better in our opinion. We would go again, and think it's worth giving a go. It'd be interesting to see how other Coeliacs got on there.

The James Munro
Liverpool, Merseyside View On Map
We headed to The James Munro Gastropub in Liverpool as we'd heard they could cater for Coeliacs. We found the staff to be very helpful and they had a prepared a Gluten Free menu with options for Coeliacs. Dishes with sauces could be amended to have a GF sauce instead and those off-limits were clearly marked. We managed to have a brilliant four-course(!) meal and would gladly eat there again. The service was excellent and food very tasty. The Monkfish was especially nice. The fourth course, after the Cherry and Chocolate Mousse was a nice Cheeseboard. Eating out Gluten Free at The James Monro was a pleasure and felt 'normal', with no major concerns over what was going to be served up :-)

Hotel Felix
Cambridge, Cambridgeshire View On Map
My girlfriend and I went to Cambridge this weekend for our anniversary and stayed at the excellent Hotel Felix, a modern, elegant hotel on the outskirts of the city. Graffiti, the hotel's restaurant was equally modern and elegant with attentive service. We'd booked it well before I found out I was gluten free, so this was going to be the first test, and I was very impressed. The menu had a star next to all the dishes which were suitable for coeliacs and a diamond against those that they could adapt to make gluten free. The menu wasn't restrictive with the majority of dishes already gluten free.

The menu was also very inventive. For starter, I had Baby Squid stuffed with Chorizo on a bed of Tomato which had real tasty Spanish flavours. My girlfriend had Ballotine of Goose with Roast Pear, Port Syrup and Goose Scratchings which was equally as good. The main courses were the real highlight. I had Roast Breast of Mallard, Confit Leg Boudin, Potato Rosti, Brussel Sprout Chiffonade and Plum and Orange Jus. The breast was cooked perfectly and the Leg Boudin (a duck sausage) was sensational, absolutely packed with meaty flavour. The Rosti was all caramelised on the outside and had a great texture. My girlfriend had Fillet and Braised Blade of Tilbury Beef, Shallot Tart Tatin, Crisp Bone Marrow and Cavalo Nero which received equal plaudits. The only let down of the dish was the Bone Marrow which was a crispy nugget, lacking any real filling. Neither of us could resist the Bitter Chocolate Delice with Rapsberry Ripple Ice Cream and Salted Caramel Sauce which tasted as fantastic as it looked.

The restaurant clearly seemed to have a gluten-free influence and with an increasing number of people eating gluten free they're on to a winner. Providing me with a gluten free bread roll was real attention to detail and the bread is probably the best wheat free bread I've tried!

Aldi
, Nationwide View On Map
We've found Aldi supermarkets to be a stockist of loads of Gluten Free products. The great thing is that their ranges are so clearly marked as to what is 'Gluten Free' and also highlights other allergens. It makes it so easy to do a shop there, and very easy to spend on some tasty food and drink. If only other supermarkets cared enough about Coeliacs (and other groups with allergies/intolerances). But well done to Aldi for taking the step forward and offering a brilliant shopping experience for those on a Gluten Free diet. It's much appreciated.

Plas Mawr
Machynlleth, Powys View On Map
When we decided to travel to West Wales and explore Aberystwyth, we quickly settled on Plas Mawr as a place to stay as it's location (whilst a few miles out of town) looked to be ideal. Once booked we were quickly in touch with Tina (the owner) to ensure that she could cater for a Gluten Free diet. She was very friendly and when she was unable to get hold of Gluten Free sausages, asked if we could bring our own whilst she would still provide other GF items.

On arrival we were met and shown to our lovely, spacious room. We arranged what time we wanted breakfast and the following morning headed down. They had managed to source a gluten free muesli that we had never seen in any stores near us and thanks to the good range of options, a heart breakfast was had. At the end of the holiday she was more than willing to let us take the cereal with us.

B&B's can sometimes be a bit hit or miss but we would definitely suggest Plas Mawr.

Black Lion
Machynlleth, Powys View On Map
We were staying in a nearby B&B and were flicking through the information pack when we saw the menu for the Black Lion. We were immmediately drawn to it as throughout, all Gluten Free meals were made obvious.

We headed straight down there and on arrival we found a very pleasant pub with just one other couple there. We had read that we should try to book in adavance but chanced our arm and there was a table for us. However, by the time that we left then the pub was almost full, always a good sign!

Often when eating in a pub then options can be limited but at the Black Lion there were actually too many!!! Eventually we settled on a steak and duck in plum sauce, both of which were delicious meals. If staying in nearby Machynlleth or Aberystwyth I would really go out of your way to visit the Black Lion.

London Bridge Hotel
London Bridge, London View On Map
This hotel is a nice business hotel in the centre of London. The rooms are modern, free WIFI and gym. When I explained that I would like to have a gluten-free breakfast, the front desk made sure that my needs were fulfilled. In fact, the breakfast was so good and abundant, I got up earlier, just to be able to enjoy the full experience!

Sainsbury's
, Nationwide View On Map
Sainsbury's are the second largest grocery retailer in the UK and in my opinion, the best of the larger supermarkets for Gluten Free choice. Whilst others are starting to ctach up, Sainbury's have generally led the way with a wider selection of foods in their Gluten Free range. In total there are over 850 stores across the country so you generally won't be too far from one and if you have the choice I would recomend heading their to stock up.

Tesco
, Nationwide View On Map
Tesco is the largest grocery retailer in the UK with over 30% of the market. As such it is never too hard to find a store near to where you will be. Given their size they don't have the greatest selection of Gluten free goods but the range is improving and you can even get fresh bread in some stores now. If staying in the UK then Tesco will be a good starting point as should have the essentials although you may want to go elsewhere for a greater choice.

Zizzi

Zizzi's were always quite good at providing gluten free information on their menu's but we were pleasantly surprised to find that they now offer Dove's Gluten Free pasta. Couple this with risooto's etc. then there are plenty of choices!

Cassons Restaurant
Chichester, West Sussex View On Map
We think it's worth the half hour drive from our home to eat at Cassons, as the food, welcome, and atmosphere are outstandingly good. I hadn't realised that Viv, the great talent in the kitchen, had previously cooked to Michelin standards, but on reflection, I'm not at all surprised. Presentation, menu design and balance, but more importantly, quality of ingredients are all of the highest standards. The owners are passionately interested in what they offer and our recent choice of suckling pig cooked three ways was so magnificent that on subsequent visits we asked for it again. The roast beef served for the Sunday lunch - what a deal for the quality - was exquisitely tender and tasty roast fillet, perfectly aged and beautifully cooked. I don't know how they do it for the price.

Today was no exception, and we could tell from other tables that we were not alone in our appreciation. The wine list is excellent and there are half bottles, good house wines by the glass, which is very good for us at lunch and driving. Cassons has great individuality, and a personal touch, which we like very much. Their gluten free bread, the excellent sweets, we can't fault them. We were recently disappointed elsewhere and are so relieved to find Cassons always reliable. If on a budget, I would rather come here once than have two inferior meals elsewhere. As I come from a catering background, I am hard to please. And no relation to the owners!!

The Mad Hatters
Launceston, Cornwall View On Map
In the weeks before our trip to Cornwall I spent a lot of time searching the internet for gluten free Cornish pasties. I even sent out a couple of requests on Twitter but to no avail. Eventually I happened upon the website for The Mad Hatters tea shop in Launceston.

We entered the very friendly tea shop which was filled with tea pots of every possibly type imaginable. The place was packed and lucky for us the only available table was in the window.

After a long drive (and the prospect of another 2 hours to go), opening the menu to see such a long list of gluten free options made me very happy! Of course, I went for a gluten free Cornish pasty. It came served with either baked beans or salad. I went for baked beans - they were Heinz and gluten free. How did it taste? Delicious and definitely worth driving 3 hours for! The gluten free pastry was very flavoursome and had herbs (maybe rosemary?) in it. The pasty filling was the traditional beef, potato, swede and onion combo.

The other thing I found really interesting about The Mad Hatters was the other patrons in the tea shop. Many people think eating gluten free is a lifestyle choice, and not a medical requirement or a necessity for a healthy life. A number of the other clients in the tea shop were in the more mature age range and I could hear at least one person on each table ordering a gluten free item. I'm fairly certain for my fellow diners, the need to eat gluten free was not a lifestyle choice. I'm amazed that gluten free pasties weren't more easily available in Cornwall. Based on how busy The Mad Hatters tea shop was, there is clearly a demand.

Launceston is located just off the main A30 going straight into Cornwall. If you're travelling down to Cornwall for a holiday, it really is an easy stop off. Why waste your time in motorway service stations when you can visit somewhere as fabulous as this? If you're en route to a self catering holiday cottage The Mad Hatters can also provide gluten free items to stock up on for your holiday to either freeze or eat straight away. Just pre order and then stop off to collect! No need to miss out on a Cornish pasty or scone just because you can't eat gluten.

Dolls House Restaurant
St Andrews, Fife View On Map
Just had a lovely meal at the Doll's House. Good service and delicious food. I've had great meals here before, but this was my first meal here since discovering that I'm wheat allergic. The waiter was very efficient at checking with the chefs and last night all the starters and mains were wheat free! Superb! Apparently they usually try to have at least two wheat free mains and starters. I will be back!

Gourmet Burger Kitchen
, Chain View On Map
I had a fantastic meal at the GBK at Cabot Circus in Bristol on Saturday night. The member of staff I spoke to there was brilliant and very knowledgeable. She made sure that my food was cooked and prepared to minimise the risk of cross-contamination. It was excellent to be able to have a main meal and a side order (the Grilled Halloumi Bites were very tasty).

The meal out was hassle-free - a big change to many experiences of eating out as a Coeliac - and added to the enjoyment of a great weekend away in Bristol :-)

I recommend GBK not just to Coeliacs - but to 'normal' people too ;-) I hope I am able to eat at other branches of both in the future too. We have conformed that all GBK can cater for Gluten Free.
