Gluten Free in Methven

Hi all,

We are staying in Methven in a couple of weeks and would like to know if any of the supermarkets sell Gluten Free products like bread etc. If you also know of any restaurants that have Gluten free meals it would be appreciated.

Methven is a very small village. Outside the ski season it is quite sleepy. It has some shops but it's not famouse for shopping. You will be able to get Gluten free products in supermarkets in Christchurch or Ashburton. I would not expect a lot of choice for Gluten free meals in Methven eateries.

Hi helbel09,

In Ashburton, go to New World supermarket - heaps of Gluten free - better range than most Australian supermarkets.

Resturant wise, try Last Post Cafe in Methven, best in town... Out of 6 entrees, 4 are Gluten Free... Out of 6 mains, 2 are Gluten free... Talk to the wait staff or the chef, and they will make alterations for you to suit.

Blue and Brown pubs also have some Gluten Free options also, as does Shackeltons resturant with 3 out of 4 starters, 2 out of 6 entrees and 3 out of 8 mains all Gluten Free. Steelworx resturant is another option...

So, all in all, you will dine in Methven OK.

Hope this helps.
