Popped into a local Greene King for a spot of lunch. First thing to note that the Greene King chain are pretty poor when it comes to a gluten free menu. Not only is there a lack of accomodation for my wifes condition on the main menu, but it appears that even the carvery is far from trouble free. Apparently the roast potatoes and parsnips get thrown in the general purpose fryer making them a total no go. There was a sign saying all gravey now contains gluten alternatives available. You do however have to wait for you dinner to go cold before the cold gluten free gravey arrives. We have also noted a gluten and nuts disclaimer in small print on the back of the menu which, to paraphrase, says we cannot be arsed with your food intolerance because we are a sloppy arsed bunch in the kitchen just pushing volume not care and quality. This really tells in the food quality. It really was not a great meal. Today the tables were only slightly sticky and I will be wiping my feet on the way out to relieve myself of all the vegetables and detritus that have been decorating the floor around my table. What peeves me the most, my wife being the Coeliac, is that I have had to pay more for the carvery being the weekend and receiving 2 fag paper slices of meat.

nice atmosphere, not all sat on top of each other. Food arrived in timely fashion, as ordered, and hot.
Scottish Kaz came across as a very nice and helpful hostess

Food & drinks lovely & great price. Outside rear seats/tables looked a bit sad & needed a coat of paint or varnish, some tables broken. 1 part closed for repair
