Paula is a coeliac herself and fully understands the problems associated with dining out. Much of the above menu is provided gluten free and all gluten/wheat free food is prepared in a separate area to avoid the risk of cross contamination. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are more than happy to answer any questions regarding food preparation and ingredients and will accommodate dietary requirements as much as possible.
You are assured of a very warm welcome at Kirkwood and Richard and Paula will endeavour to provide a relaxing and homely environment to ensure an enjoyable stay at Kirkwood. Your hosts can provide much useful information about the local area including a list of venues serving gluten free meals which Paula can personally recommend.
