Very poor service. A 2 hour wait for our starters. No recognition from staff. A very small discount. The food was excellent when it came. Ensure that there is not a long wait if you are visiting.

Hi. I am not sure whether they do have gluten free options. What I can say is that the head waiter was very helpful when it came to the menu options and meeting our needs.
