My mum is a coeliac and she always opts to go here for meals as we've never had a problem with this restaurant. There are so many gluten free meals that she can have and there is no fuss from the staff like other restaurants. I would highly recommend booking in advance as the place is often booked up. It...

Plenty of choice of gf and non gf dishes and with 6 gf desserts to choose from I was in my element!! Reasonably priced, very pleasant staff and our food was swiftly served which all added... More

A whole menu designed to be almost all Gluten Free is truly special. The food was delicious and well cooked. The choices on the menu made me feel normal for the first time since being diagnosed as a coeliac. A lovely choice of puddings too which was a real treat and the prices were really reasonable. Lovely atmosphere and plenty... More

Lovely pub, great range of choice on the menu for both GF and non GF eaters. We both ordered off the specials board, surprised by the mighty portions of food, great value for money. I had the last bit of GF steak pie which was absolutely delicious and came with a decent portion of veggies. Pushed ourselves to have dessert... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review Emily and glad to read you enjoyed your various courses at the pub. The GF options are wide and, of course, can be eaten and enjoyed just as much by non-GF diners. Come again soon. More

We wanted to take my Nan out for a nice meal and fortunately we found The Brook Inn. Specialising in GF food we were well catered for. Our puppy was also welcomed inside which was nice as the weather wasn't ideal for eating al fresco. The food tasted home made with real passion. Thoroughly enjoyable and we will definitely be...
