Guide to Gluten-Free Dining

Check out these fantastic restaurants, cafes, eateries and bars in Bury St Edmunds who offer great gluten-free options!

Gluten Free On The Menu

Along with vegetarians and vegans, dining options for those who are coeliac or gluten intolerant have been extremely limited for many years. With the exception of the occasional restaurant or niche and specialist eatery, those who need gluten free food may have felt like dining included interrogation of waiting staff or asking to scrutinise ingredients lists on menus.

Thankfully, these days, many eating establishments have got serious about offering realistic (and delicious) options for those who wish or need to avoid gluten and such places are on the rise. Bury St Edmunds boasts a veritable smorgasbord of forward-thinking independent and family owned restaurants, cafes, eateries and bars which serve a great range of gluten-free meals and drinks!

We've picked a selection of eateries that provide either a separate gluten free menu or who have dishes that can be prepared gluten free clearly marked on their menus, making for an easy and enjoyable meal.
