Hi Jolly Sailor We ave visited your lovely pub for meals and quizzes on a number of occasions during holidays over the last few years and have always enjoyed your food. We are visiting Teignmouth again in two weeks time, this year one of our party is on a strict Gluten free diet, do you have a gluten free menu or allergy information on your main menu? We hope to see you soon Best Regards Andrew Barton

Hi Andrew, Not sure about the Jolly but Perilicious in Bank Street do an extensive menu and specialise in Gluten Free. They are more of a cafe but super friendly and accommodating. Sorry for the late reply :-)
