Food For Friends

Awkward Eaters is on a mission – to source great food establishments up and down the country that will adapt or create menus to suit a range of restricted diets, food intolerances and food allergies.

Latest signings to are an eclectic mix that include Tea Monkey (funky tea shops in Bath and Milton Keynes), Food for Friends (an award winning veggie restaurant in Brighton) and the Arnside Chip Shop in the Lake District (where gluten free batter is always on the menu). There’s more too: the Abingdon Guest House in Torquay specialises in gluten free breakfasts and Pogo is a vegan cafe and social space in Hackney, London. Homemade and locally sourced meals are what you can expect from the Aikton Arms in Wigton, whilst the chic and friendly Blenio Bistro in Brighton cater for a range of dietary restrictions thanks to a great chef who creates dishes from fresh for their happy diners.

Add these to some great restaurant signings in January that included the highly acclaimed Bevis Marks in London E1 (Kosher and dairy free are amongst their specialities). The Flowing Spring in Playhatch, near Reading, will serve gluten free, dairy free and veggie foods as standards – and appears in the CAMRA good beer guide 2013. Greenz in Tulse Hill, a veggie special, claims to be the most fun you’ve ever had eating salad. You can also get greens galore, but so much more at the exciting new concept restaurant that is Tibits off Regent Street in London.

They’re all here waiting to be discovered on When you’ve tried them add your comments and let others know what you think of the food, the service and the way your dietary requirements are catered for. We’ll be adding more great venues soon and if you have a tried and tested favourite we’d love to hear from you.
