Eating out is a continuous pain for people with Coeliac Disease, I have found a number of really brilliant places that I just cannot fault and each with their own Gluten Free desirable item. I am so pleased that so many restaurants are taking on board the benefits of offering gluten free meals to patrons (I get a bit bitter that vegetarians get so much more than I do) so here I am creating a list that I will add whenever I discover a new place in the UK.
Check out their online menus for which dishes are Gluten Free.
Although some dishes are gluten free I would still always advise staff when ordering that you are a GF customer so that they can inform the chef to prevent contamination. I have not personally eaten at all of these restaurants, therefore I advise that you always check with each restaurant before dining to ensure they can meet your specific requirements.
