UK 100% gluten free – Northern England

Northern England 100% gluten free

Welcome to this series of posts aiming to capture all the 100% gluten free venues in the UK.  This listing covers all of Yorkshire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire, County Durham, Cumbria, Northumberland and Isle of Man, but at this stage Yorkshire & County Durham are dominating the scene.

Northern England 100% feature pic_opt

For other regions of the UK, including London, please see the UK 100% gluten free page.  Please subscribe (see box to your right), or connect via Facebook or Twitter for updates.

The criteria I used for inclusion, was that the business has to be:

  • 100% gluten free (ie no cross contamination risk), and
  • have its own outlet that you can visit, such as a shop, café or a stall at a market.

If you know of a business that fits the criteria that is not listed, please let me know via the contact page.
