Things to watch out for in gluten-free London
  • Unmarked menus - some restaurants are very gluten-free friendly but don't mark the options on their menus (booooo!). This should be changing soon with the introduction of the new Food Allergen Regulations. In the meantime, ask your waiter what they would recommend!
  • Gluten-free option - some menus will mark a meal as a 'gluten-free option'. This means that it isn't actually gluten-free, but they can adjust the ingredients easily for you. Just make sure specify that you want it gluten-free!
  • Allergy vs intolerant - many restaurants will ask if you have an allergy if you indicate you want a gluten-free meal. They are just checking if you are coeliac so their chef can take extra precautions with the area the food is prepared in. If you are intolerant (like me!) or opt not to eat gluten, just let them know.
