My lovely hometown, which admittedly is most famous for William Shakespeare and The RSC Theatre, is also packed with eateries and tea rooms. Some of them are absolutely fantastic at catering for dietary needs, so I thought I’d share my top places to go.
My first place is Bensons Restaurant is Henley street ( almost opposite Shakespeare’s Birthplace). Their gluten free options really are fantastic, you can get things like a breakfast with bottomless tea for around £5 all gluten free, right through to lunches and afternoon teas. They also have a separate dairy free menu, and really do understand the cross contamination risks and take many precautions ( hooray I shout).
Loxleys Restaurant and Wine Bar in Sheep Street is my next choice, and no not because of the wine element ( although they do have a great choice) but because they have really good gluten free options. The dinners or pre- theatre menus are delicious, AND they can manage to provide gluten free sausages on their breakfasts, plus is a really quirky and luxuriously decorated restaurant that is worth a visit when you are next in the vicinity.
if you have a sweet tooth you’d be mad to miss Hoorays gelato parlour. They have gluten free waffle cones, plenty of gluten, dairy and a few nut free options and some delicious vegan offerings that are worth a visit on a hot day.
In Bridge Street there is Huffkins Bakery, they do a mean peanut butter brownie that is gluten free ( and eaten well out of the way of mini me)
So here’s my top places for starters, I will be updating the post when I find other free from dining delights.
