Judges comments - July/August 2017

'Busy pub - we had not booked so were lucky to get a table. The staff were very friendly and when I mentioned we were coeliac they immediately told me they had a separate gluten free menu. Felt confident that they would take allergies seriously.'

'The separate gluten free menu were clear to read and they seemed able to adjust dishes to suit other allergies. What I particularly liked was the choice - a good range of starters and puddings in addition to the mains which is quite unusual. They also told us that some of the specials for the day could be tweaked as well. We had one main waitress but for more difficult questions another member of staff came to help. I was confident that they had handled the food properly but mainly because they all seemed very competent when asked about allergies.'

'Fabulous food - it looked wonderful and was very carefully presented - looked absolutely beautiful and accompanied by seasonal vegetables. When I asked for these to be served without butter or dressings this was followed through clearly by the staff.'

'A very enjoyable experienced - the staff were excellent, the range of food substantial and the menu exciting - it made you feel normal having allergies and free to enjoy fresh, quality food that just happens to be free from as well. A place I would really enjoy taking friends and family for a special occasion.'
