Many thanks to the Donaghadee Community Development Association which recently hosted a series of training workshops we held to help food outlets in the town cater safely for their Coeliac / Gluten Free visitors.

Attended by around 30 members of staff from a number of businesses in Donaghadee we covered what Gluten is, how it affects Coeliacs, what a business can do to cater safely for Coeliac customers and finished with some ideas about where a business can buy Gluten free supplies.

Harbour & Co, Pier 36, Bridewell Cafe & Delicatessen and Home Sweet Home are all well worth a visit when next in Donaghadee and if you fancy Fish & Chips go and talk to the staff in The Captain’s Table and see what they can do for you.

If you’re looking for GF meat products try J Wright & Son (Butchers) and the Slice of Heaven cafe should be able to sort you out with a GF meal if you talk to the staff.

As ever, if you are Coeliac tell the staff wherever you eat- don’t just say you’re Gluten Free so that they will know you could be ill if you eat the wrong food!

Tell us what you think...
