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

The Truscott Arms, London *CLOSED*

By on February 25, 2015 in UK Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

The Truscott Arms is a gastro pub in Maida Vale, a short walk from the canals of Little Venice.

August 2016 update – this venue has unexpectedly closed due to a 333% rent increase.

August 2017 update – rumours it was reopening, but with different owners, it is unlikely the menu will be the same.


They have a fantastic gluten free menu, and even have fish and chips!  As there are coeliacs in the owner’s family, they have set out to make coeliacs feel normal going out to the pub by providing gluten free beer and lots of safe food options.  If you look at their website, you will find a page dedicated to gluten free.

I visited on a Monday night and only the bar menu was available, rather than the full menu (Wednesday to Saturday), but I could still have lovely fish and chips!   Gluten free fish and chips is a rare treat for me and it was well worth the trip from West London 🙂
