If you’re travelling in the South West of England, and should be anywhere near Exeter, it looks like this place – the Halfway Inn near Sidmouth – would be worth checking out.
They do bed and breakfast and have a gluten free menu for dinner as well as breakfast. And it sounds as if they understand the issues involved – and are prepared to provide substitutions where appropriate.
Also, they are clearly interested in supporting local food producers, which I think is fantastic. Their meat comes from a local butcher who knows where his meat comes from, and it is within 4 miles of his shop (4 miles!); and they also have at least one local ale. And nine different ciders available.
Now, if only this was as near to me as the cows are to the butcher … Exeter is a long long drive from here, but I will bear it in mind for a future trip.
If anyone has visited it, please let us know what it was like – thanks!
I’ve written a book summarising what we’ve learnt over 20 years of dealing with the gluten free diet, and it might be just what you’re looking for. It packs the lessons we’ve learned into what I hope is a helpful and straightforward guidebook. It’s available on Amazon, as a paperback or for your Kindle…
