Gluten free din­ing out in Dorset

All UK restau­rant and take­away staff must by law pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on whether their meals con­tain bar­ley, rye or wheat, among other al­ler­gens. How­ever, there is al­ways the dan­ger of cross-con­tam­i­na­tion be­cause gluten free meals are cooked with the same uten­sils and sur­faces as bat­tered food­stuffs. The re­al­ity for coeli­acs like me is a night of stom­ach pain for eat­ing chips cooked in the same fryer as bat­tered chicken.

From my own ex­pe­ri­ence the best places for gluten free eat­ing out are: Waga­ma­mas, be­cause they take their al­ler­gies so se­ri­ously that only the man­ager will take your or­der.

As a gen­eral rule curry houses are a safe bet.

For take­aways, Some­thing Else Fishy in Mil­borne Port of­fers gluten free fish and chips

The Sand­ford Pub in Ware­ham, where 95% of their meals are gluten free or have a gluten free al­ter­na­tive.
