I was really excited to be invited onto Radio 4’s You and Yours consumer affairs programme today to talk to Winifred Robinson about the cost of living crisis and being a coeliac. The increasing cost of food in general is a worry for many people, and if you add to that the high price of … Continue reading

I’ve been itching to write this review since June (!) when we went to Rafters with some dear friends, and I’ve finally got round to it. Of course, Rafters isn’t your average tea out – it’s a high end dining experience, so very much in the market for particularly special occasions (like a small lottery … Continue reading
Hi, SteelyMcSteel here, and for my third post, I would like to recommend The Brook. It is a perfect option for a good brunch or breakfast out on the town. Their wonderful food along with their snazzy Sheffield themed art makes for a very cosy and comfortable aesthetic. They have a good range of gluten … Continue reading
The George, Hathersage
I’m really getting into the swing of going out for tea again! I recently went with some friends to The George in Hathersage – somewhere I’ve been meaning to try out for a while. It’s a relaxed, traditional-style bar and hotel in a 500 year old stone building in the Peak District – but only … Continue reading
The Oxford Place – Leeds!
Now, I’ve decided to break a golden rule. The rule was to only write about places to eat in Sheffield, mainly to avoid confusion. But the discovery of a 100% gluten free restaurant in Leeds is too good to keep to myself! I discovered The Oxford Place because I went on a girls’ shopping trip … Continue reading
We went for a pre-theatre meal at Bill’s in the centre of Sheffield. It’s a chain restaurant and bar with a good gluten free offer of European style food. The interior of the restaurant has a slightly industrial look and feel with exposed pipes and cable trays, mixed with fancy chandelier light fittings – very … Continue reading
Hi I’m SteelyMcSteel. I’m eleven years old, I’m in year six and I’m Steeliac’s eldest child. It’s taken two or three years of tests and an on and off gluten-free diet to get diagnosed so I have a pretty good idea of what it’s like. First of all I have three main points to make. … Continue reading
First post in a while! It’s been a funny few weeks, adjusting to life in the lockdown. In general, things are ok chez Steeliac – we’re working from home and attempting to home-school our boys, as well as trying to keep things as normal as we can. I hope anybody reading this is coping ok … Continue reading
Pho Cafe has arrived!
Last week I was a very happy coeliac, having been invited to a pre-opening ‘friends and family’ night at the new Pho in Leopold Square. I love Vietnamese food and make a point of going to Pho whenever I can in Manchester. This place is equally great for a quick lunch with a big bowl … Continue reading
Pub lunch at the Fox House
I was pleasantly surprised by a recent lunch at the Fox House pub on the road out to Hathersage. They don’t have gluten free items marked on the menu, which is a shame as they do mark other allergens (e.g. alcohol, unusually). However they do have decent gluten free ciabattas and a separate fryer, which … Continue reading
