Where to get the best gluten-free fish & chips

January 14, 2020

If you watched me peg it out of the sea last week then you'll know I was in Ilfracombe. So it won't take you long to realise my fish & chips recommendation is in the same place.


I must say, I don't often go to the chippy. I didn't even realise it was a thing until a teenage friend told me she used to go there every Friday for her family's meal. 


It's not that I want to eat it all the time. But I would like the choice. So when a massive sign outside Lynbay Fish & Chip Shop in Ilfracombe had the crossed grain symbol, I couldn't help but go in.



I was pleased to see they were clued up about cross contamination. Separate fryers were used and although this meant a twenty minute wait for my special gluten-free fish, it was worth it.


As you can see, they served up a mammoth portion. Admittedly, it cost a tenner, but there was so much on my plate I was able to give plenty to my daughter to eat (and she was keen to grab a few more chips after she'd finished!).


My only disappointment was that the staff didn't seem to share my enthusiasm for their gluten-free creation. They seemed more intent on gossiping about their personal lives to one another, which was a shame as I'd have loved to chat to them about why they started doing gluten-free food, not listen to a rant about the woman down the road.


But if you're keen to get a good coeliac-friendly feed in a place on the harbour, this is the place to come.
