Living and travelling gluten free in the UK, Australia & around the world!

London 100% gluten free

If you are a coeliac, sometimes you wake up on the weekend and just want to have a safe gluten free treat or a meal without asking a million questions.  This listing was born out of my need for cake one weekend!

The criteria I use for inclusion is that the food has to be 100% gluten free (ensuring no cross contamination risk) and have its own outlet that you can visit.

Clapham SW4


Mommi is a Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian fusion) restaurant and bar in Clapham: small plate dining, contemporary cocktails, boutique Latin wine list and craft beers, with Miami styling and bespoke art insignia. Add on a compulsion for authenticity of execution, a passion for prettiness and a dedication to effortlessly healthy deliciousness – and there we have it. A recipe for a good time.


Open kitchen “cheffing” with a Japanese Fire Robata Chargrill, a beautifully intricate Raw Bar and a flaming Hot Tempura Kitchen adds a sense of foodie voyeurism to those dining in booths – safe in the knowledge that all the food is “officially” gluten free – as accredited by Coeliac UK.  The food is designed to share and gluten free beer is available.  

With a tagline of  “Gluten Free & Flavour Full – and one heck of a party” you won’t be surprised that there is late night live music at weekend, and for the morning after, you can have a stand-out power-ballad bottomless brunch!  In the warmer weather you can enjoy the outdoor terrace.  On Sunday lunchtimes they have teamed up with The Kids Table to entertain kids aged 3-10.


Can’t get there?  Ordering via Deliveroo is available!

  1. Kirsty says:

    Me and my mum are looking to eat out in London on Friday.
    Possibly near the covent garden/Oxford Street area, although doesn’t have to be quite there.
    She is coeliac so was wondering if there is any recommendations of places that aren’t too expensive that do good seafood close to there at all.

    • The Coeliac Plate says:

      Hi Kirsty
      Sorry I missed your query in time. I wouldn’t have been much help on the seafood front anyway, but I hope you found something suitable?

  2. Sally says:

    Hi Caroline,
    Only just come across your website, it is brilliant. One of my best friends has recently discovered she’s coeliac and is really struggling to eat out, as a lot of places that claim to be GF don’t think about cross contamination in the kitchen. She’s coming to visit me in London next weekend and I can’t wait to take her to a couple of the places you’ve listed. All sound delicious! Thank you.

    • The Coeliac Plate says:

      What a good friend you are to do the research for a safe place to eat! If she is missing bread, try to get to Beyond Bread 🙂

  3. lock Azul says:

    Excellent Collection

  4. Dona Rita says:

    I love this list. Being a coeliac myself, I’ve recently started a food company selling Gluten Free Pão de Queijo (Brazilian cheese bread) in London. I’d be happy to send you some to try 🙂 Thanks for this inspiring list. And please feel free to take a look at our product xxx

    • The Coeliac Plate says:

      Hi Pedro, I actually had you on my list to contact and I would love to add your pop ups to the Street Food listing. I will be in touch! Caroline

  5. Joanne says:

    We are staying at the Double Tree Hilton in Westminster. Are any of the restaurants you list for people with celiac disease in that vicinity?

    • The Coeliac Plate says:

      Hi Joanne, not in easy walking distance, but London has fantastic public transport with buses and tube, so you can easily get to the central London options. For example if you walk to Westminster tube, in two stops you can get off at Bond Street and be very close to Selfridges on Oxford St. As a tourist you are likely to visit Covent Garden and you can change after one stop from Westminster to the Piccadilly line to get there. Also have a look at Cotto which is on the other side of the river, not too far from your hotel.
      The concierge at the hotel will be able to help you with directions to all the places on the list – there may be direct bus routes as well!

  6. karina van der Leeuw says:

    Thank you for your great article. Cant wait to try out a few places for our next visit. During our last visit I came across a great Fish Restaurant where they serve the best GF Fish and Chips! Its just off Portobello Market and its called
    They also serve GF beer from the tap! The owner explained how the daughter of a good friend had been diagnosed with coeliac disease which inspired him to learn all about it and to now offer GF options in his restaurant. Beautiful fish and chips and really lovely place. I can highly recommend it!

  7. Sandra says:

    Hello, thank you so much for sharing all these information! I love going to the markets in London, but I refrained from doing so as it’s usually quite difficult to find delicious pastries that are both gluten free and refined sugar free. Thanks again for this post!
    By the way, I would like to add a fantastic raw cake maker, Mr. Prempy’s, at Stoke Newington farmers market. All of their cakes are free from dairy, gluten, refined sugar and eggs, and they taste absolutely heavenly! Just to clarify, I don’t work for them, it’s just it wasn’t everyday that I get to find something that ticks all the boxes of my dietary requirements and still tastes so wonderful. Hope you would find this information helpful. 🙂

    • The Coeliac Plate says:

      Hi Sandra
      Thanks for the tip, I will get in touch with them regarding going onto the London list!

      • The Coeliac Plate says:

        Hi Sandra
        Just to let you know Mr Prempy’s have now been added to the list! Thanks for letting me know about them 🙂

  8. Caroline says:

    Some great tips and recommendations. Will need to visit these!

  9. Leroy says:

    Hello. I am coming to a meeting in London from California for work. I have been gluten-free since my Coeliac diagnosis in 2007, but this is the first time I have tried to travel so far, and for so long, since being diagnosed with several other autoimmune diseases in 2013. I am more than a little anxious trying this. I can’t eat any gluten, oats, corn, eggs, chicken, dairy, shrimp, sulfites/sulfates, or any nightshades (tomatoes, chili peppers, eggplant, etc.). Cross-contamination on food preparation surfaces and from deep fry oil, etc., would be a problem for me. It seems like the chances of getting sick while eating out for a week would be very high. And a week is too long to fast. Traveling back home while sick could really be a challenge. I am wondering, if anyone could recommend some markets in or near south bank, or Charing cross/Piccadilly Circus areas, where I could get suitable food to take back to my hotel or something.

  10. Anne says:

    Thank you for sharing! As a celiac patient traveling can be difficult, this has easier my mind! Can’t wait to visit next year and try some of these!

    • The Coeliac Plate says:

      Hi Anne, yes, finding 100% safe places while travelling myself just made me feel so much more relaxed, thus the list was born!
