Palmers Green, London View On Map
For anyone in the North London area, head to Aragosta in Palmers Green. The majority of their pasta and pizza dishes are available with a GF option and a lot of their meat and veggie dishes are also gluten free. Unfortunately, none of their desserts are gf, but if you ask nicely then they will make you a lovely pancake! Gluten free dishes take a while longer to be delivered to your table, especially since the pizza bases are made from scratch, but every item is worth the wait. Particular favourites of mine are the Pollo Vesuvio and Pizza Dino. Lovely staff, great wine list and the offer of a free liquor after the meal make this a very worthwhile place to stop.

Marks and Spencer

Marks and Spencer now have a good range of Gluten and Wheat Free products, including Bread and Cakes. I picked up a Lemon Sponge Cake and some of the Brownies and Pecan and Chocolate Cakes. Looking at their website there is also a range of GF products to order online.

Now do Gluten and Wheat Free sandwiches, salads and cakes. The service from the very knowledgeable staff at the O2 was very pleasing. When ordering the cakes ask for them to be wrapped if you have Special Dietary Requirements, as they will bring you a sealed one that is not cross-contaminated. I had a Cheese and Coleslaw Sandwich and a Chocolate Brownie. Very tasty indeed. The Sangers are made with Genius Bread.

Chicago Rib Shack
Knightsbridge, London View On Map
They have Gluten Free options (spelled 'Gluton') on the menu. Our server was very knowledgeable about Special Dietary requirements. I had a huge T-Bone Steak, along with some enoyable Cocktails, including a Mohito and an Old Fashioned (if anyone knows the recipe do let me know?).

La Tasca
, Chain View On Map
La Tasca offer advice on their website, from which customers can download a document with a complete breakdown of which of their foods contain allergens. Best of all, their in-restaurant menus states which dishes are not allergy-friendly - this is the holy grail of dining out for me, so that what I see on the menu is what I get on the plate!

I asked many questions on policy and provision for allergies of Wagamama, and found their awareness to be excellent. Their website lists the menu options which might be suitable for a range of intolerances. Waiting staff are trained about dishes and can advise allergy sufferers on what is suitable for them, and they are also happy to modify dishes where possible to cater for multiple needs.

Signor Valentino
Quayside, Cardiff View On Map
A gold star goes to Signor Valentino in Cardiff Bay, as despite having an unavoidably gluten filled menu - a given in an Italian restaurant - their staff are incredibly knowledgeable on the suitability of their dishes for allergy sufferers, they didn't make me feel awkward for asking and there was plenty to choose from - their swordfish is fantastic!

The Black Swan Hotel
Ravenstonedale, Yorkshire Dales View On Map
We stayed at this B+B just outside the town of Kirkby Stephen whilst in the area for a friends wedding. On arrival the first thing that you notice is how nice the location of the hotel is and the quality of the rooms. One of the party we were travelling with is himself a hotelier and his being impressed should be a good guide.

Our friend had booked the room for us so shortly before we arrived we phoned ahead to ensure that they could deal with our gluten free diet. As it was quite late in the day they were asked that we bring our own sausages/bread for breakfast but I think that had we phoned a little further ahead they would have been able to provide this. They were able to provide us with a gluten free muesli however so we would have been able to eat had we not taken our own stuff.

There was a bar/restaurant as part of the hotel but due to the fact that we had to get to our friends wedding and were then there during the evening we were unable to try this so I can't report on how good this was.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Black Swan and I really expect us to head back and explore the area further at a later date.

Bath House Hotel
Chard, Somerset View On Map
We stumbled across the Bath House Hotel when looking for accommodation near to River Cottage HQ. My partner was given tickets to the River Cottage Autumn Fayre as a birthday gift and as usual, we left finding somewhere to stay to the last minute.

Initially we were attracted by the online pictures of the rooms; we were fully aware that you don't always get what you see online however when we arrived in our room, we were thoroughly both surprised and delighted. We stayed in the Hollywood Suite, which was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated. and extremely comfortable. We especially liked that it had both a shower and bath. When we go away, I like to relax in the bath, whilst my partner prefers to shower- so we got the best of both worlds, which also made getting ready to go out for the evening much quicker!

When we arrived Karine was so welcoming; she sat us down with a drink of our choice and went through the breakfast menu for the following morning. As this point, I highlighted that I was a coeliac- expecting to have to explain what I could and couldn't eat, Karine promptly assured me that they could adapt any dish for me. Music to my ears! Expecting to have to settle for a bowl of fruit or yoghurt, I was spoilt for choice. I initially chose the fruit platter, when Karine said 'Have that and have something else, what would you like?' So I took off my gluten free hat and went for the smoked salmon, poached egg and asparagus. It was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. My partner went for the Full English Breakfast and for the first time ever, he couldn't finish what was on his plate, the portions were generous and cooked to perfection.

After we'd chosen from the breakfast menu Karine told us a bit about the local area and recommended places to eat. Again, due to my dietry requirements, we hadn't considered eating at the hotel that evening, as I tend to avoid chinese food given that most of it contains gluten... not the case with The Bath House Restaurant, Oriental Aroma. Karine explained that they have a few coeliac customers, who dine their reguarly. So after a stroll into town, we returned for our evening meal.

Wow, the service alone was second to none but the food was out of this world! Freshly cooked to perfection, and made to order I was in food heaven. We ordered between us, Salt and Peppercorn Spare Ribs and Chicken Satay. The satay sauce was brought out in a separate dish so that my partner and I could still share; he had the sauce whilst I shared the chicken skewers, which were delicately marinated and succulent on their own. We then ordered my 'old pre-coeliac favourite' Sweet and Sour Pork- this was adapted with gluten free coating and sauce, it tasted absolutely amazing. I always find that gluten free substitutes never taste as good, however even my partner agreed that it tasted better than the gluten version! We had Malaysian Noodles, which were adapted with rice noodles as opposed to egg noodles and again, these were fabulous. My partner also ordered Chicken with Cashew nuts, but because the Sweet and Sour Pork was so good, we couldn't manage to finish the chicken (despite it being another tasty dish!).

So to cut a long story short; in finding a fabulous, welcoming place to stay for the night, we also found a superb resturant that caters for coliacs. We couldn't have asked for more.

Llandudno, Conwy View On Map
We went to Barnacles in Llandudno on two occasions last week as they do gf fish and chips,they have other gf things too on the menu, pies sausage the lot, we ate in, the staff were all clued up even bringing Bill the gf vinegar, if all eating houses were all so easy being a coeliac would be so much easier to live with. It was lovely seeing Bill enjoying fish and chips. Very easy to find down the main street.

French Connection
Stourbridge, West Midlands View On Map
If you are looking for a Coeliac friendly place to eat in the West Midlands then the French Connection is a good place to go for a quick lunch, or a full meal. They are fully up to speed with our needs and will make as much of the menu as is reasonably possible suitable. Today I had a lovely chicken with garlic mushrooms with salad and a gluten free roll (I was given the choice of bread or a roll).

The Alasia
Weston Super Mare, Somerset View On Map
Went to the Alasia Restaurant, in West Street, Grove Village, opposite the Playhouse Theatre. The lovely friendly owner Michaela is a coeliac and it was great to be able to choose anything from the menu. Everything is gluten free.

Had a lovely meal of battered fish and chips with homemade tartare sauce and minty mushy peas - the batter was so light. Followed this with chocolate nemesis - a very rich dark chocolate baked cheesecake.

Didn't need any more all day. Would love to go there again some time when in the area.

The Little Cupcake Cafe
City Centre, Belfast View On Map
The Little Cupcake Cafe is "Belfast's first cupcake cafe" and it is in the style of the growing, ever popular American style cupcake cafe. They sell a wide variety of cupcake flavors as well as cupcake towers, giant cupcakes, cake toppers, and a few other things. They rotate one different flavor of gluten free cupcakes every day, but you can order any kind you want in advance. They also rotate one different vegan cupcake every day. It is located right in the center of the city, right near city hall - very easy to find. However, I was never lucky enough to actually HAVE one. I was staying over a weekend and a bank holiday; businesses had strange hours and I couldn't make it in to get a cupcake because I had lectures all day. From what I hear though, they are good; plus they are centrally located and affordable.

Hotel de France
St Helier, Jersey View On Map
Just back from a break in Jersey, we stayed at the Hotel de France in St Helier. I told them I was coeliac on booking and they asked me to email a week before arrival to let them know what I needed them to buy in. I sent them an email to say I'd need bread for toast and sausages if the breakfast was full english. I also added a bit about cross contamination, etc. On the first morning the head waitress told me they had bought in a new toaster, and the chef was putting together a cooked breakfast for me so nothing was contaminated from the buffet. It consisted of sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes. This was brought out every morning with my gf toast without having to remind them. On the last morning they were full of apologies, they had been buying the sausages in fresh every morning and were unable to get some as it was Sunday.

We ate at the hotel one of the evenings, they had no problem putting together a gluten free dinner for me, even though nothing was marked on the menu.

Waterloo, London View On Map
I would particularly mention Cotto, a pizza and pasta restaurant in London. The owner is a coeliac and several members of his family also work in the restaurant - including one of his sons who is the chef - so everyone is very aware of the needs of coeliacs. The restaurant has a separate kitchen for the preparation of gluten-free food and just about every item on the menu is or can be gluten-free. It is the only restaurant in London where I feel completely confident in eating a meal. The easiest way to find Cotto's is to take the Bakerloo line to Lambeth North station. When you come out of the station you can see the restaurant on the other side of the road. Cotto's is near the Imperial War Museum, the London Eye, Waterloo main line and tube station and St Thomas' hospital.

I did not stay in this hotel, but did eat an evening meal 3 nights on the trot without any problems.

They have a very good understanding of gluten free. I would highly recommend it.

Cottage Lodge
Brockenhurst (New Forest), Hampshire View On Map
My boyfriend thought that Mary Poppins had opened a B+B, such was our welcome at this charming cottage. We were informed that gluten-free muesli, gluten-free sausages and gluten-free bread were all available at breakfast and she even had a dedicated gluten-free toaster! The fear of being accidentally poisoned vanished and so did my aches and pains after a wonderful soak in the corner bath. I can highly recommend this place and will certainly be returning.
