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.
