My husband and I visited The Olde Post Inn this weekend having been given a present of Gearoid Lynch's recipe book "My Gluten-free Kitchen". My husband is a recently diagnosed Coeliac and is very sensitive to gluten. Dining out has become fraught with hazards as a result. We booked for the gluten free cookery class and dinner bed and breakfast....

6 of us visited for the early bird dinner on Sunday evening while staying in Farnham Estate for a short break. The restaurant had been recommended by a work colleague of one of our party.

We went here for our anniversary. The staff here were amazing. Very friendly and attentive marking sure we had everything we wanted. The food was delicious as well. I had some amazing monkfish and the chocolate fondant was the best I've ever had. We left very full and satisfied. Bit pricey but worth it

This is one of the nicest places to visit. The decor atmosphere and food are just first class. In particular the Sunday Lunch is worth going the extra euros for. Staff very attentive and professional.

My sister booked 1 night B&B with evening meal for myself & my husband as a birthday gift based on all the press she has seen lately with the Chef's Coeliac cook book. Perhaps my expectations were far too high. I had expected above any place I have ever been that the choice for Coeliacs here would be great due...
