Gluten Free Restaurant


Went to Bruno’s Brasserie in Cambridge tonight!


And they know all about gluten! Or should I say how to keep food free of it.




Since going on a gluten-free diet a couple of years ago, I have generally been much healthier.

However, I’ve just found out that I have gall-stones. Does anybody think there is a relationship? Probably there isn’t but it would be nice to know if there was!

Pub With a Gluten Free Menu


We went out last night to the White Pheasant at Fordham, which is about 7 miles north west of Newmarket on the Ely road.

They mark all courses which are gluten-free. Last night all the mains were acceptable.

It’s quite expensive, but if you’re in the area, it is worth a visit.

Not So Welcome Break


I came down the M1 last night from Derby to Leicester to watch Ipswich.

Feeling peckish, I went into the Welcome Break at Leicester Forest, to look for something like bacon and eggs. The reason I went there was about six months ago, I had done this and the manager cooked them for me personally. He knew all about coeliac disease and acted properly.

No such luck this time, as the irritable cow said they were off. Everything else was not gluten free. Except possibly faggots, but I don't know about them, let along fancy them!

Finally when I got to the Walkers Stadium, there was only pies to eat. Not even chips, either inside or outside. The only thing with any nourishment was a normal Pepsi.

I shall be complaining!
