About The Gluten-Free Dining Guide

Alice Reeves, Founder & Editor


I’m Alice and I live in Brighton, UK. I was diagnosed with chronic IBS after suffering years of unexplained stomach pains and started following a gluten-free diet in 2007. While locating gluten-free dining options has become significantly easier within the last few years, it can still be a bit of a pain. Especially when you’re new to the whole gluten-free thing and aren’t entirely sure what you can and can’t have.

By writing this blog, I hope to encourage all restaurants to think a bit more about their allergy-free options. Rather than simply (and lazily) removing the gluten-containing components of a dish, it would be fantastic if more places provided “proper” gluten-free alternatives. I’ve been served soup without anything to dunk in it, pâté and terrine with nothing to spread it on, told that breaded chicken nuggets are gluten-free (good job I’m on the ball) and had to leave restaurants because none of the waiting staff – or more worryingly, the chefs – could tell me what was safe to eat.

A couple of months ago I got an email from a lovely colleague of mine, Alli Wilson, about her new venture Cheeky Vegan Baker.
