Silver winner 2016

Judges comments - July/August 2017

'I had booked before we went and had said that I was gluten free and when we arrived the lady behind the bar already knew and was very happy to accommodate our requirements. The menu was varied with lots of dairy and gluten free desserts which was a pleasant surprise. All of the allergen information was clear and easy to understand.'

'The food was fabulous from our starters through to our desserts. Tomato and beetroot soup - lovely flavour and came with home made gf bread which was very tasty. Very flavoursome red pepper paté with crusty home made gluten-free bread and salad which was. Gf Burger with bacon and cheese, chips and salad – very tasty and filling. Gluten-free syrup sponge and custard – very light and tasty – better than the gluten version!'

'It wasn't the cheapest meal I have ever had but it offered so much choice that we were really happy with the bill. Especially as they had made such an effort to make sure as many people as possible were catered for.'
