Are you looking to treat your partner this Valentine’s, or do you simply want to take a loved one out for a nice meal? We’ve done a roundup of 2017’s winners of the FreeFrom Eating Out Awards.
Based in Clapham, London, these guys sure know how to run an award-winning establishment that caters for all dietary requirements, and it’s just as well, as they were the ‘Overall winner’ of last year’s awards. All of their staff are trained in allergen management, all of their dishes are gluten free, and all of their food tastes amazing! It doesn’t get much better than that!
As we all know, a trip to the seaside isn’t complete without fish and chips. Well, thanks to David’s Fish and Chips, a trip to Devon doesn’t have to be without the mandatory dish. Aside from the warm, friendly welcome you receive upon arrival, they don’t make diners with a dietary requirement feel any different to those without. Their menu features a huge selection and they even have gluten free vinegar, accredited by Coeliac UK. Now that’s what we call service!
If you’re looking for a traditional, gluten free pub lunch, then look no further than The Old Queens Head in Buckinghamshire. They have a dedicated GF menu, which they take great pride in – no dietary requirement is too complicated for them. For once, feeling proud about having a dietary requirement is actually a thing!
When it comes to curry, they often contain something you probably can’t eat. Well, un-phased by food allergies, if you’re ever in Brighton, you must visit Curry Leaf Café. Their traditional Indian cooking means that a lot of their food is naturally free-from, but even if it’s not, they will happily cater for you, with real confidence and kindness.
With fresh ingredients and a guarantee that all dishes are prepared on site, no diet is too daunting for The Eating House in Derbyshire. A designated area within their kitchen is reserved for the preparation of allergen free food to ensure no contamination, and they don’t fall short on dessert, either, with a vast selection of gluten free cakes.
With more and more independent restaurants offering free from dining, it was about time chains joined. Pizza Express have really stepped up to the mark, and make eating delicious Italian food possible. Think you’d have to miss out on their trademark dough balls because you’re gluten free? Think again. Not only do they offer a gluten free variety of dough balls whilst guaranteeing that everything is stored separately, they offer gluten free beers, too.
Going away and want to stay somewhere that specialises in allergen dining? The Star Hotel in Dumfries & Galloway makes this possible. With a widely free from menu, almost everything is possible, and if it’s not, they’ll try their best, including whipping up gluten free batter so you can enjoy that much-loved pub classic, scampi and chips.
