They have gf hamburger buns and cauliflower pizza crust. The pizza wasn’t amazing, but not terrible. Celiacs tends to settle for what they are able to eat, and I would say the meal was filling, but not fulfilling.

November 2018: They’ve a good size GF menu which includes apps, salads, mains, burgers and pizzas. They also have Strongbow cider ON TAP which was a huge selling point for me! (They’ve done GF beers, as well.) I went for a classic shepherd’s pie, which came with a pitcher of thick, dark brown gravy made with the GF beer. It made me nervous, but... It was fabulous and I did not get sick! (I am extremely reactive to even cross-contamination.) Couldn’t be happier to have found this place right in downtown Portsmouth.

Fairly extensive Gf menu. Daughter (Celiac) loved their gf margarita pizza. Manager was very attentive. Does not have a dedicated fryer though so no French fries:(

Plenty of choices and GF pizza (though not sure that they make their own or buy a crust). Kids love it and there are good meal options for the adults.

they had decent gf options that were celiac friendly but were wildly unaware of items they had listed as gf that were not. i.e. teriyaki wings. contains wheat flour. just make sure you thoroughly ask about the item yiu want to try. very friendly staff and accomodating.

This is usually one of my go to restaurants for GF in Portsmouth! Never had any trouble there until I went a few weeks ago (It's my own fault as it was late night). The waitress said they could make the quesadilla GF. Which I don't think it was as I was violently ill the next day! Just be careful if you go in there late at night!

Extensive Gluten-free menu, including pizza, wings, salads, appetizers and entrees. They even have Green's Amber Ale by the bottle (the best gf beer!) Decent bar food.

Wanted the gf shepherd's pie, but they were out..someone contaminated batch with wheat flour. Got burger instead. Asked for avocado with it and it was no problem. Disappointed about no fries, though. Burger tasted char grilled, very tasty

Large gluten free menu. The pizza is great! Even has GF beers. Unfortunately, the fries are not GF.

Gluten-free menu, waitstaff seemed knowledgeable. No dedicated frier, but they do offer gluten-free buns for their burgers. Great atmosphere!

I had a delicious cauliflower pizza. In fact when they brought it I was nervous it wasn’t GF.

This place is not safe for celiacs. No clue what you all are talking about. Says so right on their menu, so thanks to all you reviewers for wasting our night

Kids were happy to have burgers with buns for dinner. We couldn’t even think about taking a fryer risk (which we often do) bc their fries are apparently coated in something that has gluten. I noticed the chicken quesadilla had a GF marker and there is cauliflower pizza, but I did not try either one.

They no longer have GF shepherds pie. Also, no GF battering or frying so the menu is fairly limited but they do have GF burger buns and pizzas. The server was also GF and very knowledgeable. Food was very good but selection was very limited since most reviews here. Menu was easily marked what was GF though.

Buffalo chicken pizza was excellent...cauliflower crust. Couple GF beers in a bottle and ciders on tap.

The food was very good and they pay close attention to their GF cook area but they fail to tell you that it’s a very small area and if they have a lot of GF orders your wait can be very long. Our waitress never checked on us once we put in out order. She didn’t even come to check on our drinks, which were empty well before we received our meals. When we spoke to the manager is defended his waitress and did nothing to compensate for our wait. Again food was good staff was not!

In the words of the manager, I recommend the salad...... With a gluten and dairy intolerance the only option they recommended was a salad with chicken and the chicken wasn’t good. Have a gluten free menu but they don’t seem to recommend it for anyone with severe intolerances to gluten.

I’ve eaten here 5 or 6 times in the last 2-1/2 years. I have celiac and haven’t been glutened yet (knock wood). Made the mistake of not looking at the reviews before recently having a pizza here at the Manchester restaurant. Last guy before me apparently thought the exact same thing about the crust that I did first bite in. Gaak. “Against the Grain”’s crust is far superior in my opinion to that pressboard. Unfortunately, Hannaford has apparently stopped carrying my favorite (uncured pepperoni). The other dishes I’ve had here were great: fish, shepherd’s pie, and one of their burgers.

Arrived on the Cape today and went to British Beer Company based on reviews from Find me Gluten Free. It did not disappoint. I had the best burger I have had in years and the potatoes with bacon and cabbage were awesome. I highly recommend!

Plenty of gluten free options. Cobb salad good. Gluten-free pizza crust is terrible however. They should switch to against the grain crust from whatever they are using now. I’ll update my review if they improve the crust. I would definitely not recommend a gluten-free pizza currently. They also do not seem to have gluten-free dessert options. Atmosphere and service good. they do have gluten-free beer and they also have some cider options

I spoke with our very attentive waitress about the reviews I saw on this app and told her about how I was worried about CC. Asked her for her recommendation on the least likely CC choice and went with the lettuce wraps, and besides over cooking the chicken a tad, I was fine!!! She told me the cook cleaned the grill. I am extremely sensitive and traveling, so I was happy! Thank you!

I ate here over Easter weekend two times since I was staying next door at a hotel. Both times I had a waitress that was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. They also had several ciders to choose from, which I appreciate! I have celiac and am very sensitive to contamination and I didn’t get sick!

very good pub food in Brit setting. right across from the beach! we went in the middle of a wind storm and with 3 kids. rather than turning us away the manager let us know the had a limited menu because of the storm & damage to a fan. when we mentioned we needed kids meals and Gf meals there was no issue. my daughter with celiac had a delish GF Shepherds pie. my husband and I had great sandwiches and my other kids had gluten-y kid food. the same manager hand delivered my daughters GF meal to the table separately from the other to avoid any mix up. we were are full and happy and walked the beach a bit after. totally recomend. I would love to see what the other meals would have been like with the full menu available.

I grew up on the Cape and now live 2 hrs away. Anyhow I have been back and forth visiting a sick loved one and found the BBC on the find my gluten free app. I had my doubts that my daughter and I wouldn't get glutened but gave them a shot and I'm so glad that we did. Our table enjoyed gf shepherd's pie, the cob salad and my daughter ordered a gf burger with a side salad (I wish they had a dedicated fryer for French fries but I'm still impressed with their menu) we also enjoyed a gf brownie sundae that was devoured. I honestly can't wait to return! My large extended family in that area is pleased that we have a restaurant that we can go to and everyone can enjoy!

Kept getting fried buffalo chicken on gluten free pizza. I specified it was a allergy and it would come in a gf box. They would also tell me is gf it’s in a gf box. I would push and they remade it every time but I stopped trusting them. This happened about 5 times in a row.

Asked if they gluten free menu when I arrived and hostess said yes. Hostess brought me to table with regular menu. Waitress swapped it out for gluten free menu. Ordered steak tips. Arrived with fried green beans. Asked waitress about it and she swapped out for a new order with steamed broccoli. Food tasty but service not proactive or correct first time. Took 10% ($1.90) off my bill. Big whoop.

I have a 10 year old daughter with celiac. This was a great option! They have a gf menu and said they were celiac friendly. My daughter ordered a hamburger (sorry, no fries). We were comforted when the waitress informed us that her manager would bring our child's food out because she was wearing gloves. Burger was a bit over cooked but good.

AMAZING! Growing up in Falmouth I've always come here but when I was hit with being gluten and soy free (with an existing tree nut allergy), so I was excited when I saw them on Find Me GF!! I had their gluten free wings and they're Shephard's Pie from their separate menu, and I FINISHED THE WHOLE THING it was so good! I'm so glad I can still enjoy this place :D

I ordered a salad with steak off the gluten free menu and the waitress asked if I was gluten free. I said yes. When I took the first bite of my salad I noticed croutons in the salad. She did bring me a new salad but this should have never happened. My friend ordered a salad off the regular menu and asked for no croutons so maybe that is what you need to do to assure you don't get them.

The staff is not knowledgeable, manager is not convincing either. Cannot promise no cross contamination for legal reasons. Due to rude staff and unsafe kitchen I won't be back anytime soon.

We stopped here for lunch on our way out further on the Cape. It just so happened that our waitress had celiac and she told us that the GF menu was truly safe for celiacs, and she doesn't have a problem with the food. We were really happy after stopping at another supposedly gf restaurant...just to find out it wasn't actually GF. My celiac child had a burger and bangers 'n' mash, and her food was good. I had a salad that was quite good (mine wasn't gf but others were) and my other child had pizza. There is gf pizza available. We will return!

The BBC has a decent gluten free menu- tasty food! I've eaten here many times and have never been glutened. The managers seem to be familiar with gluten issues, and most of the staff does, too.

Though they did have a gluten free menu, the pizza was very weak as the crust looked like a pita bread. Pretty disappointing.

so friendly! separate menu and the pizza isn't made on site to ensure no contamination! it was a lovely dining experience.
