Duke of the Sea – gluten free fish and chips Geelong

Gluten free fish and chips Geelong

UPDATE – from Tuesday 31 JULY 2018 new owners have taken over and are continuing to offer gluten free options as long as the demand is there.  Also consider Highton Fish and Chips as they are also owned by the previous owners of Duke of the Sea.

Being a seaside town, Geelong is just the place you would expect some nice fish and chip shops.  Duke of the Sea is in Geelong West, which is less than a 10 minute drive from the seafront.


As one of the owners of Duke of the Sea has Coeliac Disease, they understand what is required for a strict gluten free diet.  They have a dedicated gluten free cooking space, grill, fryer and utensils and the staff are all trained in cross contamination.  I had read this on the website but I still quizzed the girl on the till and all questions were answered as above!

There is a separate gluten free menu online or you can ask staff to point out to you what is suitable for gluten free.

You can eat in (both inside and outside) or takeaway.  We decided to takeaway and go and sit by the Geelong waterfront, just a short drive away.

The gluten free meal came out marked with GF as you can see below, so there was no confusion as to which package was mine.

I chose the ‘DFC’ burger which was southern fried chicken with slaw and chilli aioli.  It was deliciously messy to eat and I loved the hint of chilli. I love sweet potato and couldn’t resist a sweet potato cake.  I shouldn’t have ordered chips as well as I was too full to eat many, but it is good to know for next time we can share chips.

I would definitely eat at Duke of the Sea again if in Geelong and it would be a good stopover point if travelling from Melbourne to the Great Ocean Road.

And if gluten free fish and chips isn’t enough, Gluten Free 4 U bakery is a neighbour, so you can stock up on your bread and cakes as well!
