100% Gluten Free Venues (UK)

One of my missions has been to visit all the 100% gluten-free venues I can find. Whilst this is much harder abroad, I thought I would at least try as many as I can in the UK. I actually compiled myself a list of them to tick off as I go – so why not share it with you all? I thought a guide to 100% GF eateries would be really helpful.

I have actually tried quite a few of these places myself already, some also on numerous occasions. When you find a place you can safely eat at – you tend to drift back there.

To make this easier to browse, I have listed the places in by country in the UK then by alphabetical order of county. There are also some notes against each one with the type of venue/menu it is.

This is compiled of places I know to be completely free of gluten. However, the places themselves may use ingredients which are ‘may contain’ and therefore out of my control. Things may also change so always make sure to check with the venue before and when you arrive. Some of my top tips for eating out gluten-free can be found here.

If I have missed any places in the UK which are 100% gluten-free then please let me know either via email ([email protected]) or by using my contact form. I’d love to add them in! The more the better. Also the same if you notice any changes to places in this guide (i.e. no longer GF) before I do.
