Enjoy British treats without guilt or regret

“I am a gluten-free traveller who finds that searching for edibles can certainly be daunting at times. I’ve just returned from a walking trip to the Isle of Wight (England) and would like to recommend The Old Thatch Teashop in a seaside town called Shanklin. The shop’s menu is two-thirds gluten-free and the choice offered is extensive. The Old Thatch Teashop has the perfect charm of English tea shops, an outdoor eating area in a small back garden and even a wee fairy garden corner. P.S. My friend and I enjoyed a fabulous self-guided trip of the area using the great local bus services (including some walking) and we stayed at a lovely, small, affordable hotel called The Gracellie in Shanklin.”
