I went for brunch and they were able to accommodate gluten free and seemed knowledgeable. Much of the menu was naturally gluten free. A little pricy but worth it for a treat.

Terrific experience. Not a gluten free menu, but a fine dining experience of this caliber allows for them to make modifications to most of the dishes. They also baked fresh gluten free bread for me which was an amazing touch. Food was delicious, a bit pricy for dinner, but a nice upscale dining experience and I had no Gluten issues or concerns.

Wheat Allergy

Overall Rating

Review


Good and interesting food, gluten free friendly. Like most Michelin starred places they accommodate any and all allergies (mine are not exclusive to wheat), though not to the level I had hoped. One such exception is the bread— while a lot of restaurants feature gluten free bread options, this one does not appear to have any, from the typical pre-meal rolls to the pain perdu accompanying the main dish.

Indeed, that separates The Village Pub from something like The Plumed Horse. Where Plumed Horse substitutes allergens with something the diner can eat, VP simply removes them. While this inevitably leads to a different experience than the dish intended, it didn’t negatively impact the flavor. A gluten friendly companion actively preferred the duck sans bread. Still somewhat dampening that they don’t accommodate quite as well.

On the other hand, there was a phenomenal gluten free soufflé. I haven’t seen gluten free soufflé before and it was excellent.

Service is worse than it used to be and somewhat vacant, though the actual waiter himself was great. I had a rocky start to this visit though, my table wasn’t ready and we stood outside for nearly ten minutes. Better than inside the absurdly packed and loud entrance though.

Truly excellent dinner. Don't be out off by the lack of a separate menu. The team here knows what they are doing when it comes to GF. Many of their dishes are naturally gluten free and the kitchen is happy to make adjustments when needed to avoid cross-contamination. I had the steak...WITH the delicious sauce since the sauce had zero gluten. It was a huge portion, which sadly left no room for the flourless chocolate soufflé.
