Tell me about your relationship with gluten..
I have been a diagnosed celiac since I was 15 but only recently restarted a gluten free diet.
Why should gluten free travellers visit your town?
Louth is a market town on the edge of The Wolds. It has stunning architecture including an impressive cathedral. The Wolds are beautiful for walking.
Tell me something fun about your town..
The poet Alfred Lord Tennyson attended the King Edward VI Grammar School in Louth. 🙂
Where is your favourite place to eat out in your town and why?
‘Perkins Pantry’ on Mercer Row. The cafe/bistro serves lunches and afternoon teas and almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free. The staff are very knowledgable and willing to answer any questions. Their produce is local. On my last visit, instead of the gluten-containing shortbread with my coffee, I was given a small slice of their delicious gluten free lemon drizzle cake as an alternative. The friendliness and thoughtfulness of the staff, and their chocolate brownie!, make it well worth a visit.
- Thomas2Â inÂ Lincoln is a lovely cafe with a good knowledge of gluten free food. They always have gluten free bread and many of their other dishes are also either gluten free, or can be made so. Try their gluten free chocolate brownie!
- Uncle Henryâ€™sÂ near Gainsborough has a range of gluten free dishes labelled on their menu and they are always happy to mix and match so you can choose anything you like. They are also a farm shop selling several varieties of their own gluten free sausages as well as other products.
- The Royal OakÂ inÂ Aubourn, just outside Lincoln, is a lovely pub in a beautiful village setting with an extensive gluten free menu. Their prices are reasonable and it’s a great place to take friends.
