As you may already know, I have a wheat intolerance and therefore have completely cut wheat and gluten out of my diet. I've been doing this for around twelve years, so I'm pretty used to it by now! I have noticed over the years that supermarkets and restaurants have become so much more accustomed to people who are gluten-free (whether it is an intolerance/allergy or a dietary choice), and now it is so easy to find things that are gluten-free when out and about.
A couple of months ago (I know this blog post is so late haha) my boyfriend and I went to Bath as a birthday treat for him. We went for a couple of days and it was great. (I actually used to live there but I don't remember it unfortunately!) Bath is STUNNING and has amazing history and buildings which we loved exploring.
We also ate out a few times and I wanted to make this blog post sharing the gluten-free food I ate, as I found it so easy to find food that I fancied eating!

When I last visited Bath a few years ago my parents and I discovered this little gem called Rosarios. It is such a cute place with a large variety of food, lots of which are gluten-free or can be made gluten-free which is amazing. I decided to go back here with Ciaran as I knew we would have a tasty lunch! I had a delicious Homemade Pesto Chicken and Tomato sandwich (on gf bread) which was sooooo good! It's not pictured in this post as I ate it before I thought about taking a picture, oops! The bread was very tasty and all of the fillings were so fresh. (Ciaran had the Local Sausage Panini, not gf - which also looked yummy). We also both had a mocha which were also lovely.

In the evening we decided to go to Café Rouge (one of our faves). I had the Poulet Breton which is a staple favourite of mine, I have it every time. As the name suggests, it consists of chicken, with herb mashed potato, courgette, mushroom, spring onion etc in a cream sauce, it's sooooo good. Then for pudding I had an Eton Mess which is a classic, and happens to be gluten-free too which is fab! Both courses were delish. This restaurant has an excellent selection of gluten-free dishes. It is clearly written on the menu which are gluten-free with a (G), and others say (GO) which means it can be made gluten-free.

Before we set off to drive home, we decided to go for a cream tea at the well-known Pump Room Restaurant as part of the Roman Baths. I saw on their menu that they offered gluten-free scones so I really wanted to try them. We both just went for scones, cream, jam and a pot of tea each which was definitely enough to be getting on with!! The gluten-free scones were DELICIOUS and are the nicest ones I have ever tried. The cream and jam were gorgeous too. I would highly recommend going here if you are in Bath!
Overall we both had a lovely couple of days away. It was nice and relaxed and I would love to go back in the summer when it's hopefully a little warmer!
