Gluten free gastropub!

Last minute decision to come here for more drinks and then a gluten free dinner on Saturday night. Starting with a few cocktails which I would say are small to medium in terms of portion and flavour - I prefer punchier flavours so it was probably too easy to drink...

Had a delightful dinner for six at the Truscott Arms last month. It was Sunday, so one from our party had the Sunday roast. A celiac in our group had his first gluten free fish and chips since being diagnosed 15 years ago. Smallest child had "the best burger of my life" (real quote) and the oldest child sailed through...

Spent a lovely evening here with friends and family. Food is delicious and of a high standard. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We opted for the wine selected to go with individual dishes which did not disappoint,great choices. Beautiful restarant and lively pub great combination, will definitely return.

We came here Friday night drinks and dinner. Bar staff friendly and efficient. Good atmosphere. Great gluten free options. We had a meat platter to share and then fish and chips. All great. Only slight warning is the Friday and Saturday night deposit you have to agree to pay if you cancel or decide to not eat in the restaurant.... More

Puts all other 'roasts' to shame. Sunday roast platter and somehow they know just how much to add. Every aspect of the roast was to a high standard with a lovely vibe throughout the whole building.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely, romantic 3 course meal here yesterday evening. We found The Truscott Arms through a Google search, as my husband is gluten free and restaurants that cater for food allergies are few and far between, even in London! The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive. They made sure that my husband... More

We were here over an hour and still waiting for food. Our lunch arrived but was given to the wrong table they were in the process of digging in to our Sunday roast when the staff realised - plates snatched and dropped on our table When I said that I didn't want food that other people were eating the waiter...

One of the owners has coeliac family members. I was able to have amazing fish and chips! They also have gluten free beer, if that's your thing!

Bar snacks, bar meals and superb fine dining: this place caters brilliantly to all tastes. I was originally reluctant to go as over the years it has been a miserable place ranging from being a dive to being bland and overpriced. Charming, happy, tons of events incl wine tasting, cinema club, quizzes. Very much a come one, come all atmosphere.

Very accomodative. Food was good. Best gluten free fish n chips we've had in London. Mellow place, wine bar feel. Quiet out of the way neighborhood. Close to Warwick tube.
