Gluten Free in Weymouth, Dorset

On our recent minigolfing trip to Weymouth we had found that there a number of places in the area that offer Gluten Free options and can cater for Coeliacs :-)

Here's a rundown on where and what we ate.

Stanley's Coffee Shop - great Gluten Free cakes from Honeybuns.

The Wellington Arms - a few Gluten Free options, with knowledgeable staff and a nice friendly pub. I had the Chilli.

The Old Harbour Fish & Chip Shop - we visited in 2009 and this time I had Cod Roe and Chips (for the first time since being a Coeliac!)

The Lugger Inn, at Chickerell - quite a few options for Coeliacs. Knowledgeable staff. A nice pub. I had the Chilli (again)!

There was also an Italian Restaurant in Weymouth that has Gluten Free options, but it was fully booked on the Saturday night. we'll try it out next time we visit.

Thank you also goes to fellow BMGA Tour Minigolfer Peter Jones for a Gluten Free Fish & Chips tip-off, as he'd spotted the 'Gluten Free Options' sign in the Old Harbour Fish & Chip Shop window. If only more places advertised the fact they offer menu choices for Coeliacs - they'd certainly do more business!

Looking through some of the local tourist information and pamphlets I also noticed that in Bournemouth there is a Mexican restaurant with a Gluten Free menu. It's called 'Coriander' and the website is http://www.coriander-restaurant.co.uk/ - we'll check it out next time.
