I popped over to Bath this weekend to celebrate a family birthday, and thought I’d take a break from my usual London-centricity to post some snippets about the gluten free things I came across. I have rather got into the habit of snapping pics of anything GF and interesting.
My family and I went for a lovely brunch at The Cosy Club. This is a restaurant which is part of a small chain, and is a quirky (see the decor!) affordable and very social dining place. The Bath branch was chocka on a Saturday lunchtime, and there was some waiting around involved. We were in no rush though so were happy to sit back and enjoy the buzz.
When we booked our table online, we were able to specify that we would have a gluten-free person with us, and there was a GF menu waiting for us alongside the ‘normal’ menus when we arrived. Grand.
I had a plate of steak, eggs and fried potatoes which I unfortunately forgot to take a photo of. It was a decent, filling meal – not fine dining but a good brunch. It was great to be able to pick from a wide choice of options on the menu, and not feel limited to the usual couple of things.
I also visited The Society Cafe in Kingsmead Square for a coffee and catchup with my friend C. I was delighted to see their ‘Gluten-free board’, where they had some lovely looking caramel shortbread. Excellent teas too.
Bath is only a short train journey away from London, so even if you don’t have friends and family there like I do, it is a lovely place for a gluten-free getaway.
