Best GF restaurant by far!! We've been going here for years, even before they moved! They have had a few hiccups here and there as all restaurants do. But then there's always some people you can never please. Ignore any negative reviews! We've never had a bad experience here! Our faves are Shepards pie, Fish & chips, Bubble & Squeak and the Full English breakfast!! We are headed there today!!
For a family that has to eat gluten free this place is heaven. My girls were able to try things they had never been able to eat. Fish and chips tasted just like what we had ordered in London. It was great being able to order a Pimm's and Lemonade and have them know what it was. My girls like the fish but they love the gluten free Mac n Cheese with bacon. If you live bacon like my family start with The Bucket of Bacon. If you like corned beef go the third week of the month and enjoy in Corned Beefapalozza. We can't stop ordering the corned beef eggs Benedict on a fried Colcannon. Wash it all down with a spicy Bloody Mary garnished with Bacon of course. The atmosphere is kitschy but if your a Dr. Who fan you'll have to stop and take a picture by the Tardis.
Every time we go to Dallas this is our first stop. The menu largely encourages telling the staff if you're GF or celiac. Since my wife usually won't tell the staff this makes it easier to say when its in huge print across the menu. :p Almost everything on the menu is gluten free or can be substituted for gluten free. We share the fish and chips and an appetizer as the portions are quite big. If you're in a super hungry mood the Shepard's Pie has good flavor. The staff is super nice and we even talked to the owner for a few minutes on occasion. Great atmosphere and drinks as well.
Went in for breakfast. We were give two different menus. I ordered hash and the manager came and told me sorry we aren’t serving that this week and brought me a lunch menu, asked for the breakfast one and got a yet another different breakfast menu. Service was horrible, had to ask the hostess for refills. Have been in several times before and it was great. Clearly they need to get their act together for breakfast.
Jennifer K was an amazing waitress who took care of us from start to finish. Her cheerful attitude, pride in her restaurant, and above and beyond attentiveness is a wonderful compliment to the overall fantastic feel of the whole place. The fish and chips, onion rings and fried mushrooms were flawless. First I’ve had in six years and it was even more amazing than I remember. Go here for your next meal, you will be glad you did.
Never once showed signs of cross-contamination, never had to send something back because of a misunderstanding or inept service. This place is a treasure trove of good food that even non-celiac folks like to eat at. Of course it has a flare from the UK, so be ready for some oddball names like Bubble and Squeak. My only complaint is that the special menus are gone so quickly - y'all non-GF people need to leave some food for us! If you visit, and fall in love, be sure to follow them on Facebook for early warnings of deals and special menus or you'll miss out.
Nearly everything on the menu is gluten free (or can be prepared so). The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent. We had the onion rings and beer battered fish. The apple crisp and brownie were so delicious. We can’t wait to go back to try out so many other items that they offer. This place is definitely a treasure.
I love From Across the Pond! It is a must every time I go anywhere near Fort Worth. I have missed fish and chips ever since I started eating gluten free years ago. I have enjoyed the onion rings, fried mushrooms, scotch eggs, some holiday specials (which included dessert), and cocktails and I have never been disappointed. The options are endless and delicious for gluten free eaters! Even if you aren’t gluten free I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place...it’s that good! The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly and willing to answer any questions. Go! You won’t regret it!
I finally visited this restaurant after hearing about their dedicated fryer because YUM! There are only two items on the menu that are not gluten free. This restaurant is very inexpensive and is pretty cute. I would stay vigilant here however, and make sure your server understands you are Celiac! Our server offered malt vinegar for fish and chips! Eeek!
I'm struggling with what to write in this review because From Across The Pond clearly has a reputation of being a safe restaurant and the onion rings are so crispy and delicious. But just like any other establishment, it all depends on the employees you interact with. We stopped in for lunch and were literally the only people in the whole place. Our waitress was eager to explain their GF foods and back story. She was friendly and polite. But even after multiple conversations about me having Celiac and everything needing to be GF, my husband's salad came out with croutons on it. When he pointed it out she said, "So you're gluten free, too?" She clearly hadn't listened. We were seated near the kitchen and heard her return the salad to the chef. She said, "This needs to be gluten free, so no croutons." He replied, "Ohhhhhhh yeah." Yikes. I was certain I was going to get sick, but I didn't. The food was really good, especially the onion rings, but it was a very anxious meal for me. Be extra-super-mega-vigilant here.
Staff was very friendly. The entire menu is GF they said. The food was good. I say not sure because I'm sensitive, not celiac, so I don't usually get sick from slight cross contamination. I felt safe eating here. Lots of choices - much more than a typical restaurant.
Loved: used Redbridge and not a gluten removed beer for batter and served apple cider vinegar with my chips. didn't try to convince me malt or white vinegar are gf. the place smells, looks, and sounds like a proper London pub. prices were normal, not gf prices. portions were great. the cut off cod was perfectly chunky/flakey!!! Tried fish & chips and Shepard's pie. we left the cheese off because they weren't sure if it was glutenful shredded bag cheese.
