Are you planning a trip to London? Are you looking for gluten free recommendations? Check out my 3 day gluten free London itinerary.
Slug & Lettuce: The cutest place to grab a quick cocktail! We honestly stumbled upon Slug & Lettuce while waiting for Mayfair Chippy to open, and I am so glad we did. They do have a GF menu available but we didn’t actually eat there so I don’t know how Celiac friendly it is. I will say that the drinks were amazing and totally worth stopping in for.
Mayfair Chippy: Eating fish and chips is a must when visiting London, and Mayfair Chippy did not disappoint! They have a dedicated fryer for both the fish and the chips which makes this even better for those with Celiac Disease.
BrewDog Tower Hill: BrewDog was a bit more tricky to eat at with Celiac Disease. They do not have a separate gluten free menu you just have to order based on the servers suggestions, but they do have a gluten free beer! I ended up ordering a burger with a gluten free bun + fries. I did double check that the fries were in a dedicated fryer, and at this location they are! Unfortunately I would say the burger bun was pretty dry and next time I would just order it wrapped in lettuce.
Yorica!: Yorica! was to die for and I need to figure out how to get them to open a location in the US! I would literally spend all my money here if I could. Not only gluten free, but also top 14 allergen free! By far the gluten free best dessert in London and definitely worth putting on your travel itinerary. The desserts here are magic!
Coppa Club Tower Hill Igloos: Let me just say this brunch comes with an incredible view! The igloos are located right on the Thames River overlooking the Tower Bridge. While I highly suggest having a reservation since it gets incredibly busy we were able to get in without one! Reservations are booked months in advance and it can be difficult to secure one. If you are unable to make a reservation but still want to eat in an Igloo here is what I recommend. The restaurant is typically less busy for breakfast/brunch than it is for dinner. If you go a few minutes before they open they save one igloo for walk-ins. Ask if you can sit outside in the igloos and hopefully that one is available. Good luck!
Leggero: 100% gluten free & 100% delicious. I love finding places where I feel like I could order one of everything on the menu if I really wanted to. If you want a stress free dining experience I would recommend eating here. Great Italian food and yummy desserts. I ordered the homemade focaccia, pink ravioli, and pumpkin cheesecake.
The Alchemist: The Alchemist was my favorite place we ate in London BY FAR! This restaurant was not even on my radar when researching gluten free menus in London, but was suggested by a local. If you like science, craft cocktails, and delicious gluten free food you MUST stop here. I would highly recommend making a reservation as this restaurant gets super busy especially at nights and on weekends. I ordered the gluten free fried rice, and tried several cocktails off the drink menu.
Honest Burgers: Best burgers and even better onion rings! I never had a gluten free onion ring before this and now I know what I was truly missing out on! Fries and onion rings are in a separate fryer and they even had gluten free burger buns.
Beas of Bloomsburry: It is not a true London experience without having afternoon tea. Bea’s of Bloomsburry offers a totally gluten free afternoon tea that includes mini sandwiches, a scone, lots of desserts, and obviously your choice of tea.
Leon: Perfect place for lunch on the go. A healthy fast food restaurant that offers several gluten free options. I had to stop in a try the gluten free chicken nuggets.
