Gluten Free Plymouth News in Brief 12/02/13

Plymouth Greengrocer Update

It has been great to hear that products from two local gluten free producers recently reviewed on this blog are now being stocked at Plymouth Greengrocer in Plympton.  Sweet and savoury items from Let Them Eat Cake and delicious puddings from Traditional Puddings are now available in store.  I personally think it’s fantastic to see so many local gluten free products available to buy in one place.  This Saturday Plymouth Greengrocer are holding a gluten free open day where there is a gluten free Chinese cooking demonstration, a chance to taste samples of their gluten free foods and also enter a competition to win £30 of gluten free products.  I will be popping along and am really looking forward to the event.


Las Iguanas Gain Planning Permission

Some of you may remember that I brought you news that Mexican and South American influenced restaurant chain Las Iguanas were set to open in Royal William yard.  The opening has been held up by red tape, but Las Iguanas have finally been granted planning permission and have now pencilled in an opening date for May 1st “if all goes according to plan”.  You can view their gluten free menu here.  The group have now launched Plymouth focused Facebook and Twitter pages to enable you to keep up with progress.

Le Bistrot Pierre

Another restaurant chain coming to Royal William Yard is Le Bistrot Pierre.  I previously reported news that they were set to open this month, however they have informed me that they are now working towards opening the week commencing 18th March.  More info on their gluten free options here.

Your Suggestions

I’ve had quite a few suggestions of places to eat out in Plymouth recently.  Here are a few recommendations I have received.  I have not tried any of these myself so please take all normal precautions when eating out:

  • Rock Salt Cafe: Gluten free bread available including a “lush” burger in a GF bun – thanks to Sarah Ram
  • The Chancel: Gluten free bread, bruschetta and pasta available – thanks to Sharon Lewis-King
  • Saltram House Cafe: Gluten free cakes, bread and scones served – thanks to June Gamble
  • D&M’s Cafe: Menu colour coded with gluten free choices, including “really tasty” cottage pie – thanks to Amanda London
