There are several restaurants at Borough Market that have gluten free options – this post is separate to the market stalls as it is an entirely different experience (and price tag). Please see the Borough Market post for details of options within the market itself.
I have been lucky enough to eat at Roast a couple of times, and it is a lovely restaurant where your gluten free needs are looked after.
Gluten free bread is available (separate toaster) and of course, a lovely roast dinner, complete with gravy. For a detailed review, click here.

I had read a review by naturally gluten free about Elliot’s Cafe and finally made it there in March 2014 with high expectations, as I had read that the chef is a Coeliac. As a minimum I expected GF to be marked on the menu or a separate GF menu – isn’t this what all coeliacs want? – but this wasn’t the case. I had a discussion with the waitress and there were quite a few options.
The menu changes daily, so as well as not being able to remember all the options to tell you, they will be different when you go anyway! I decided on sharing plates (which I did not share!) of beef carpaccio and mozzarella and a side of new potatoes to fill me up which was enough for me as a meal. It was simple, but had good flavours.
I would definitely go back again and it would be a nice place to meet friends as it has a nice vibe.

This was another last minute decision and although there were not many gluten free options, the waitress was incredibly helpful in checking options with the chef. I settled on a steak and salad (chips were not gluten free).

Feng Sushi unsurprisingly, is a sushi restaurant that has gluten free options – including Tamari instead of soya sauce. It is a small chain that has other locations around London.

Open Mon-Sat 11.30am-10pm (11pm Sat); Sun 12-10pm
I have not been to Tapas Bridisa, but I have read that a couple of gluten free’ers have. Spanish food is generally quite a good option for coeliacs, so it is worth checking if you are in the area. It is a small chain that has other locations around London.

I have not been to Rabot 1745, but it has gluten free and vegetarian options marked on the menu. It is cocoa-centric cuisine (ie chocolate flavour with everything), so ideal if you are a chocoholic 🙂
