The Old Horse, Leicester: Gluten Free Pub Review

The Old Horse on London Road, is a favourite with students and locals. With an excellent pub quiz on Tuesdays and an incredible beer garden complete with owls, its quite an attraction.

I came here with my housemate Priya and her family for Sunday Lunch one week on a whim. I hadn’t had chance to prepare, calling them up or checking online. So I decided to take some gravy with me just in case.

After meandering through the tables and ducking under the hanging teapots and cup which cascade down from the ceiling…everywhere… we reached the bar. It was a carvery style Sunday Lunch and I asked the staff, who were very helpful and told me what I could and couldn’t have. Obviously yorkshire puddings were out of the question (which is very sad, they make a Sunday Lunch all that it is), the stuffing was gluteny but everything else was fine, I didn’t even need to use my gravy as theirs was made fresh and Gluten Free. Perfect!

I’m not sure what kind of things are available during any other time, but if their ease of helping me with my Sunday Lunch is anything to go by, I can imagine they are more than willing to sort out something Gluten Free.

Have a look at their website, or follow Everards Tiger, the brewery on Twitter, which is made locally in Leicester….However I don’t think they do a Gluten Free beer, but you can always have a cider.
