Dining 100% gluten free at The Oxford Place in Leeds.
We recently dined at The Oxford Place in Leeds for the first time since the restaurant changed hands. I'm very pleased to report that it is still offering excellent and 100% gluten free food.
|I had the Ham Hock Terrine starter|
We first dined there when it was called 2 Oxford Place in February last year and have tried to visit the restaurant and Leeds as often as possible since then. It really is that good.
|The meal was preceded by an appetiser / amuse-bouche of Gazpacho soup|
Once again we had two superb meals. After having starters and mains on Friday were were unable to fit in a dessert. But we did leave room for pudding on the Saturday.
|Not the most summery of desserts - but the Sticky Toffee Pudding was absolutely delicious. It was a giant portion too|
It was brilliant to feast, safe in the knowledge that the meals were 100% gluten free.
|Look at the size of the crackling that came with my Pork Belly main course|
|Some fresh Oysters to start my second meal at 2 Oxford Place|
|The best burger I've had in years|
There are very few places which offer 100% gluten free options and so it's brilliant to find a restaurant able to cater for people with Coeliac Disease.
Little things like NOT having to explain to the waiting staff that I have a medical condition before ordering, or asking to see a 'special' menu, makes a BIG difference. And eating with the knowledge that there is no risk of cross contamination with any gluten containing ingredients is a relief.
Long may The Oxford Place continue offering diners - Coeliac and otherwise - superb food and service. I really hope some other restaurants take a leaf out of The Oxford Place's book and make the switch to 100% gluten free.

We are really looking forward to our next meal there later this summer.
