We ate at the Stamford Gate last Thursday evening. Upon booking my husband said that his wife has coeliac disease and could they cater for me. The response was yes, no problem. When we arrived, the manager came to the table and asked who he was 'looking after'. I said that it was me and he said choose what you would like off the menu and we'll let you know what we can do to make it possible for you. I selected salmon fillet that would normally be served with a creamy white wine sauce and also mashed potatoes and other veg. I explained that I also have a problem with milk and cream so the manager suggested a Sicilian tomato sauce and roasted herby potatoes. I have to say that it makes a refreshing change to be met with such a proactive and helpful approach. The food was great and the whole experience was pleasurable and reassuring. We will be going there again and I have added the Stamford Gate to my list of 'safe' places for me to eat out. Believe me, they are few in number.
