Gluten Free Diet and Coeliac Disease

There’s an ever growing number of people who choose to follow a gluten-free diet. To help diners we serve gluten free buns and a range of gluten free menu items. 

Our buns are individually wrapped at the bakery and arrive to your table as such. We have specific food preparation stations, grills, fryers and utensils for all of our gluten free orders. We have teamed up with Coeliac Society who regularly audit our kitchens to ensure we comply with their strict guidelines.

Why do we serve our Gluten Free bun in its wrapper?

We scoured the country for the perfect Gluten Free bun to complement our tasty handmade burgers. We use a gluten and wheat free bakery to bake our personalised bun. We wanted to ensure our customers have confidence in our product and therefore chose to serve it sealed and allow our customers to build their own delicious Gluten Free meal.

Gluten is the protein component found in wheat, rye and barley. Gluten gives elasticity, strength and the ability to ‘hold’ food products together, such as burger buns.

Gluten intolerance is different from a condition called coeliac disease – this is an auto-immune disease caused by a reaction to gluten, which must be avoided for life.

Coeliac disease is a lifelong, autoimmune disease caused by the body reacting to gluten and is estimated to affect approx. 1 in 100 people. In people with coeliac disease, consuming gluten causes an immune reaction to the lining of the small intestine resulting in a range of symptoms.
