Not celiac friendly, but greatest pizza I’ve had in a while! Local suppliers and vegan cheese also make this a place worth visiting!

Good pizza. Had to return the first one as communication between staff wasn’t great, but they definitely tried to help when I queried it and I was grateful for the extra effort afterwards. I’m not 100% confident of safety or of level of knowledge after my experience.

I had GF beer on tap which was a great bonus for me. The GF pizza was excellent and one of the best I have tasted.

Had a really great time here. The gluten free beer is really good and I told the server I had celiac and asked if I could still have a gluten free pizza. I was told they prepare it separately and even though it’s in the same oven they make sure it’s the only pizza in the oven and on its own tray. If you’re someone who doesn’t risk it at all I wouldn’t get a pizza here but I feel totally fine today and it was really nice to have pizza and beer in a bar with other people. Pizza is also delicious.

Great for Gluten Free beer!

I haven’t managed to try the pizza sadly, as I’m also lactose intolerant and they have milk in them.

Gluten free bases available for all of their pizzas. Staff are knowledgeable and will ask if you're coeliac, allergic etc. Gluten free pizzas are prepared separately but cooked in the same pizza oven as regular pizzas, although they are kept on a separate surface. Eaten here loads of times and not icne had even the slightest issue, and I'm very sensitive to CC.

Contamination risk sadly with their pizza, they’re prepared separately but baked in the same pizza oven on the same surface as the regular pizzas. Not safe for coeliacs.

Managed to have a salad though.

The g-f bases had been freshly made so they didn’t know if they were ready for us, so the kitchen did a trial pizza (for our 6-year old) to make sure they were ready, and THEN comped his pizza for the “inconvenience.” As it turned out, the bases were good to go and they were the BEST g-f pizzas we’ve had in a LONG LONG time. They have g-f beers too, if you’re drinking (we weren’t— long car ride home!). The crust was nice and light and the menu was original and delicious. We will DEFINITELY be back!!

For some reason they don't advertise their gluten free pizza bases, but they are the same size as normal pizzas at no extra cost!

As a coeliac, I didn't have any noticeable reaction. Was also informed one of their kitchen-staff members is also coeliac and also doesn't have any issues eating their gf pizzas.

One of the best gluten free pizzas I’ve had in a long time. Couldn’t tell it was gluten free. The gluten free was the same price as the normal pizza, which I think is great. GF Truffles as dessert, also good. I had wine, but GF beer available. Overall I would definitely recommend. Also dog friendly.

We visited the original Black Isle Brewery and tried their organic gluten free beer, Goldfinch. It is the most "beer like" gf beer we've ever had! So, while in Inverness we tried the bar. The gf pizza dough tends to run out, so arrive early and check before ordering. It was good. But the Goldfinch is great. I wish the distributors in the states would carry it! The non-gf beers are wonderful too. All are organic.
