Came for brunch and the food was great! As others have noted the menu doesn’t have GF notes but the online version does. Many things are GF for brunch (although the waiter told me “the things that seem like they would be gluten free are” which isn’t all that helpful). Had the chicken and waffles and it was great! Confirmed the fryer is not shared with gluten containing items and is therefore GF.

Really, really good food (even for gluten eating folks)! Gluten free items are labeled on the menu online, and the staff knows what is and isn’t allergy safe. Really great ciders as well. My table had a delay getting the food out from the kitchen, so they gave us all a complimentary cider. We really appreciated the care they took, and I will absolutely go back!

Has a lot of gluten free options for celiacs! The brussel sprouts will always be my favourite item! Just found out they also have brunch so I will be trying that for sure!

Lots of GF shareable (and tasty) items. Online menu indicates GF, but paper version does not. However, server quickly clarified by identifying those that are not GF. As most are GF 👍

I had the pleasure of eating here on Mother's Day.

Very Celiac aware establishment with a gluten free menu and well established processes to cut down on any possible cross contamination.

Tons of gluten free cider options including flights.

I had the fried chicken and waffles with apple butter. It was delicious! There were many GF choices available. I would say more than half the menu is safe.

Note that the fryer is NOT gluten free but they tell you this and the items are not marked as gluten free on the menu in house or online. No homefries for you!

Lots of gluten free options. Even though they are not marked on the menu, most of the items are safe and all the servers are very aware of celiac.

Dedicated fryer. You must order the mushroom and fried chicken! Delicious.

No longer have a GF menu and items are not marked GF. But they have a ton of gluten free ciders and some GF food items. Our server was very knowledgeable about celiac and let me know they have a separate fryer for the tasty French fries. Great spot for a nice drink!

Our server was very knowledgeable about celiac, they had a dedicated GF fryer, and all the ciders were GF! Unfortunately on the physical menus the GF items were not marked so you have to check about everything. The food was amazing though

GF fried chicken, GF BBQ meatballs and GF seared brussel sprouts were all awesome as was the service :). Discovered from attending a work event hosted by them and went back to spoil my family and menthe next night. Definitely now on our ‘list’.

Amazing place! When asking about the GF items, we were told they just got certified as a 100% GF restaurant (all food and beverage is GF except for canned beer)! Very knowledgeable and friendly service. Food was incredible (fried chicken!) and the cider flights (on tap!) hit the spot.

An incredible restaurant and extremely knowledgeable about celiac. The entire menu is gluten free except for the mac and cheese and the burger, and those can be made gluten free.

Our group had the fried chicken, crispy Brussels sprouts, miso cod, pulled pork bowl, and burger. For dessert we had churros (a special, but also gluten free!) and the meringue with lemon curd. Everything was fantastic. Will definitely go back.

Upscale pub food with an emphasis on Cider. When I went all their draft ciders were gluten free. The brussel sprouts are the best I've ever had. Also had a seasonal risotto that was very good. Staff knew what celiac disease is and volunteered that they would wash their hands and take precautions before I ever asked.

I had what I thought were mild symptoms after, however I took a gluten detective test the next morning and it came back negative ... so everything was safe! Tried the bootleg cider, fries, fish taco and risotto

We went here for brunch and was incredibly impressed by the knowledge of the servers and the breadth of gluten free options. They make their own gluten free bread in-house that was delicious! My celiac husband ate a great eggs Benedict with home fries. Note they also have gluten free French toast, sandwiches etc. My only complaint is that one of my poached eggs came out overcooked.
