I regularly eat here as a family, and we’re never disappointed. The staff are friendly and accommodating (even adding vegan options to their menu after we suggested it!) We always look forward to coming back. Thanks again!

Sure! Mervin the chef can prepare almost everything on our menu as gluten free (aside from the beer battered fish & chips!) We also now offer Peroni ‘gluten free’ on the bar! Cheers!
