JD WetherspoonÂ can be found all over the UK and have quiteÂ a few locationsÂ in and aroundÂ Glasgow. This bar/restaurant chains does cheap drinks and a wide selection of bar food at good prices. Wetherspoon isn’t a place for a romantic meal but it’s great if you’re lookingÂ forÂ aÂ cheap night out with a fairlyÂ varied menu andÂ lots of daily drink deals.Â Most importantly Wetherspoons also caters for coeliacs. Their menuÂ uses a gluten free symbol toÂ show whichÂ of their dishes are free from ingredients containing gluten.Â There are quite a few options for the gluten free of us, particularly their curry and meat dishes,Â and some of these are pretty tasty! The only thing I would say made me feel a little uncertain about eating here was when I saw this at the bottom of their menu:
‘We monitor the presence of gluten in all our products; however, we cannot guarantee that any items are free from traces of gluten.’
This lack of guarantee is due to the fact that their gluten free dishes are made in the sameÂ area as their dishes which do contain gluten so mostÂ restaurants would probably have toÂ say the same thing. Wetherspoons howeverÂ doÂ recommend that gluten free customersÂ changeÂ any order which comes with chips for aÂ jacket potato to decrease the chance of contamination.Â So far,Â from my experience of eating here, I have not had any problems with cross contamination and their Â£1.50Â Disaronno and mixer will definitely entice me back! Having an eating place like this with gluten free optionsÂ available, wherever you choose toÂ travel around the UK, is great for coeliacs.
