Look for our GF symbol
Coeliac UK’s Gluten Free (GF) accreditation scheme is here to give you confidence and peace of mind when eating out gluten free. Whether you’re eating out with friends, having a meal in hospital, or eating lunch in your school canteen, when you see our unique GF Trademark, you know the venue meets the requirements of our strict Gluten Free standard.
In these unprecedented times we have been working with GF accredited venues more closely than ever to ensure they continue to meet the Standard when they reopen post lockdown, or shortly afterwards.
The past year has been a very difficult time for hospitality. Due to this, our usual programme may not have been carried out in your area yet. So when you eat out, please make sure you call the restaurant and discuss your dietary needs before visiting.
Please remember that our GF Accreditation scheme only covers delivery or takeaway when it is delivered directly by the accredited food business itself, not via a third party delivery company. We are actively working with our contacts to make sure that safe practices are in place, but please take care using third party delivery services.
- Check Coeliac UK’s Gluten Free on the Move app or our Venue Guide for venues catering gluten free in your area and keep an eye out for the GF trademark
- Be aware that restaurants that used to offer gluten free options might not be able to do continue doing so straight after opening up. It’s always best to check by ringing the venue in advance.
- If they don’t have a gluten free meal on the menu, try phoning to ask if they can modify any meal to make it gluten free. Ask to speak to a manager or even the chef if possible and make sure they understand cross contamination.
- Book over the phone when you can. That way it’s easier to explain that you have coeliac disease and will need a gluten free meal.
- If you’re browsing or booking online, remember that venues have been closed or operating under different circumstances so information might be out of date – it’s better to phone in advance. There is often a notes section when booking. Be sure to write down that you’ll require a gluten free meal and that you have coeliac disease, so that venues can make sure they’re able to cater for your requirements.
- Be clear to your server that you have coeliac disease and eating any gluten at all will make you ill. Give examples of foods that contain gluten and always ask about cross contamination. Remember to double check if a separate fryer is used for gluten free options. We recommend you speak to a manager to be sure that your requirements are understood as a health necessity and not a dietary choice.
- Not sure if the server has given you the gluten free option? Ask them to confirm the meal they’ve given you is gluten free. If they don’t seem confident, ask them to check with the chef. And if you’re still in any doubt that the meal is safe, do not eat it.
- Had a great gluten free experience when eating out? Share it with us and our gluten free community on social media and be sure to tag the restaurant too so they know they’re doing a great job catering for those who need to eat gluten free.
And above all, don’t be afraid to speak up and advocate for yourself. Your health always takes the priority.
