Gluten Free Sheffield – eating out

I thought it would be useful to put in one place all the local good gluten free food places I know about in Sheffield. I’m sure there are others. This is a bit of a work in progress so please feel free to add any other recommendations in the comments. And if you’d like to send in a review of anywhere, please get in touch.

Please note: Menus and owners of restaurants and cafes change, so it’s worth checking gluten free credentials and cross contamination procedures whenever you go anywhere. This is a personal guide rather than a definitive list, and some of the entries are now a couple of years old!

8-9 West One , Fitzwilliam Street, Devonshire Green  S1 4JP

The Cabin – New in September 2016, coffee and waffle house that makes fresh GF waffles and pancakes. See my review. Tragically, I’ve since found out they don’t have separate cooking facilities for their gluten free waffles and pancakes, so I can’t recommend this place for coeliacs, although thankfully I wasn’t ill after I ate there.
20-24 Fitzwilliam Gate, Sheffield S1 4JH

The BBQ Collective – UPDATE Jan 2017. BBQ Collective has sadly left The Hop. I’ll leave the listing here for a while before I delete it.

2-4 York Street, Sheffield S10 2ER

Hui Wei – You’re in for a treat if you’re coeliac in Sheffield and you’re missing Chinese food. This is a great Chinese with a separate gluten free menu. They cook everything in fresh oil when you ask for GF, so it might take a little longer but it’s worth the wait. One of our family favourites. See my review.
221 Glossop Road, Sheffield S10 2GW

Ecclesall Road

Ashoka – Great little independent Indian restaurant with a fun vibe and some really interesting curries. Knowledgeable about gluten and fine as long as you don’t mind missing out on the starters. Pretty much everything else (including the poppadoms) is in play though. See my review.
307 Ecclesall Road, Sheffield S11 8NX

Carluccios – Italian chain restaurant on the fashionable Ecclesall Road serving great food with a separate gluten free menu. See my review.

Pie Parlour – Home made pies of all kinds including gluten free (Meat and potato, Chicken, leek & bacon, Cheese & onion) and gf vegan (Jamaican curry, Red veg, Mushroom medley).

Dore & Totley

Cross Scythes – Pub in Totley where gluten free items are labelled on their main menu. Really excellent food but a bit pricey for a pub so not for everyday. 4 star AA rating. I’ve been there several times – I must get round to writing a review!
Baslow Road, Totley, S17 4AE

Alma’s – Up market Indian in Dore (no website). Very nice food and does takeaway. Caters well for coeliacs as plenty of Indian food is naturally gluten free. You need to ask what you can and can’t have but the staff are knowledgeable.

The Doctor’s Orders, 412 Glossop Road, Sheffield S10 2JD

The York – Another nice pub that has gluten free dishes marked on the menu, to save you from having to quiz the staff. They have their own smoke house, so plenty of seasonal smoked food. The pub dates back to the mid 1830s when it was a blacksmiths and travellers’ inn. (Update 26/2/15 – their Sunday roasts can be served with gluten free gravy – awesome!)
243-47 Fullwood Road, Sheffield S10 3BA

Lokanta – This Turkish Mezze restaurant has introduced a gluten free early bird menu and have plenty of options for coelicac diners, with hints of more in the future… We had a great selection of mezze – review here.

Holmesfield

The Angel – Lovely, lovely specialist gluten free pub food in Holmesfield. They completely get it so you can just relax about ordering and eating. Plenty of choice and well worth the drive out. This is a gem of a place and a must for coeliacs. See my review and my second review because it’s really that good. 🙂

Ringinglow

The Norfolk Arms – I’ve not been but I’m advised by a reader that they are good for gluten free food, and indeed they have a gluten free menu. Worth checking out, I say.
2 Ringinglow Village, Sheffield S11 7TS

Meadowhall

Yo Sushi – The menu choice is considerably more limited than the full menu, which unfortunately keeps taunting you as it passes on the conveyor, but it’s still worth it for the nigiri sushi and sashimi. They can provide gluten free soy sauce if you ask for it. Try my favourite crispy salmon skin ISO sushi – very tasty and great value as one of their green plates.
1b Park Lane, Meadowhall, Sheffield S9 1EL

Carluccios – Italian chain restaurant with a separate gluten free menu. See my review of the Ecclesall Road branch.

Catcliffe

Whitby’s Fish & Chip Restaurant – Recommended by a reader that this place do gluten free fish and chips to eat in or take away. It’s worth a trip as they also do starters and other mains such as fish salads – see their menu. We took the small boy there for his birthday so you can read my review here.
Poplar Way, Catcliffe, S60 5TR (so technically this may be Rotherham, but its GF FISH & CHIPS! and not too far to drive)

Baslow

Fischers at Baslow Hall – Posh Michelin starred restaurant, which very nearly served a perfect gluten free tasting meal, but made an alarming error with one of the courses – see my review. The rest of the food was awesome and I would hope they’ve learned their lesson!
Calver Road, Baslow, Derbyshire, DE45 1RR

The Grouse Inn – Family run pub just over the border in Derbyshire. According to Phil (a reader), it’s a lovely down-to-earth and welcoming pub with good portion sizes and nice food. gluten free options and the chefs seem to be aware.

  1. Hi pasta bar on sharrow vale road does home made gluten free pasta the best gluten free pasta I’ve had yet and I’m vegan and they created a sauce not on any menu just for me family run very friendly ring and book in advance so they know to make your pasta

  2. Thanks for the website, I’m useless at passing on my GF tips. Could you add the Peacock at Owler Bar? Although it’s a chain, the choice is good and separate fryers etc give confidence. The Wheatsheaf at Baslow also has separate menu and fryer. sometimes you just need chips…! The Inn @ Troway was pretty good as well but not eaten there for a while so perhaps best to check out, nothing much on the w/site so Peacock a better bet.

    • Hi cc. Thanks for getting in touch and I’m glad you like the site. I’ll do a bit of research and next time I update the page, I’ll add in your suggestions.
      For now, they will at least be in the comments. 🙂
      I went to the Peacock but it was ages ago, and possibly before I was diagnosed. Wheatsheaf sounds good – I’ll have to check it out. I agree about the chips – so rare it’s a big treat!

  6. Maazi at Hathersage is a fabulous, quality Indian restaurant and almost all (1 lamb dish excluded) of their main dishes are GF! The food and environment of the place are very well matched, it’s the old Walnut Club venue. Excellent.

  7. Temptation Cafe in Hillsborough (right across from Hillsborough park) is lovely. Small cafe that cater to gluten free and almost always have some delicious gluten free cakes! They are also dog friendly!

  8. Another Chinese restaurant: Wong Ting on Matilda St off the Moor can do Gluten Free Dishes. The menu doesn’t indicate gluten free dishes but if you talk to the staff they can tell you if a dish is gluten free and make sure it is. They have GF soya sauce as well. I went there with friends (non-Coeliac) on a Wednesday night and they made all the dishes we ordered gluten free so we could share as normal. We rang ahead just to make sure.
    Also Appetito on Glossop Road (opposite the Barracks) has gluten free salads, pasta dishes, and sharing cheese and meat platters marked in their menu. They were also able to make me a sandwich with gluten free bread based on one of their focaccia sandwich options. This wasn’t marked on the menu but they were happy to do it and it was nice to be able to buy a sandwich with all the tasty fillings like I used to before being diagnosed.
