“Amazing Gluten Free”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

It is such a novelty to read a menu and know it's safe to eat everything on it. The food was incredibly good, the desserts were amazing. If you're looking for a gluten free menu with freindly staff and fresh food, this is the place to go.

“More a bistro than a restaurant”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Oscar & Bently is a restaurant specialised in gluten free cooking. If you are allergic to gluten this is probably fantastic, but it also limits the recipes quite a bit.

We both had burgers which were ok but nothing special. Only the buns - good bread is probably the biggest problem of gluten free kitchen - were a little bit tasteless. In addition to that the risotto with cod - as starter - was a little bit to salty.

Also we went there for dinner, the restaurant has more the atmosphere of a bistro and I would recommend to go there for tea or a light lunch.

“Lovely 21st Anniversary Meal!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

A lovely restaurant with great decor, good mix of background music and attentive service all going to create a very pleasant atmosphere. Most importantly the food was really flavoursome and the set menu particularly good value. It is impressive that the entire menu is gluten free, which makes it a fantastic experience for those with a gluten intolerance (Celiac).
Wishing you every success & keep up the good work
Regards - Mike & Helen
Ps. Hopefully see you again soon :)

“The New Menu Is Excellent!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We recently re-visted this restaurant and found it to be much improved from when it first opened. The food was really great and the new menu is much better. We will definitely be back.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It was so amazing to be able to chose whatever we liked - as everything is gluten free. It was a real challenge to make a choice from such a varied menu, unlike in other restaurants where you may get only one gluten free choice, if you are lucky.
Excellent service and lovely food, we will be returning.
