The seaside town of Brighton was recently named the ‘happiest place in the UK’, so if you’re planning a trip to Her Majesty’s green and pleasant land in the near future we highly recommend heading to the coast to check out what this great town has to offer!

A vibrant, creative and colourful city, Brighton has a rich and varied history, with plenty of places to explore. And it’s only an hour from London, so it’s the perfect place to escape for a day or two if you’re planning a city break to the UK’s capital. But what about its gluten-free dining options, we hear you cry! Well, listen up, because not only is Brighton an amazing city to explore, it’s also one of the best places in the UK to grab some great gluten-free grub.

10 of the Best Places for Gluten-Free Dining in Brighton

V&H Cafe

There’s no better way to start the day than a knock-out gluten-free brunch. So make your way to Holland Road’s V&H Cafe for a huge array of gluten-free cakes, pastries, breakfasts and brunch dishes, as well as top quality loose leaf teas and coffees. The chocolate rainbow cake is a winner, just so you know.

Terre a Terre

This veggie haven first opened its doors back in 1993, and it’s been going strong ever since. If you’re heading here we recommend trying their gluten free afternoon tea. Well, you can’t go to the UK without tucking into afternoon tea, can you?

Chilli Pickle

If you’re craving Indian cuisine Chilli Pickle is the perfect place to get your fix. This Indian restaurant is fabulous, and the staff are very knowledgeable about gluten-free diets. We loved the tandoori quail – so tender and flavourful, and absolutely no gluten involved! They also serve gluten-free beer!

Prestonville Arms

The Great British pub is a real institution, but it’s rare to find one that caters for gluten-free diets. The Prestonville Arms goes against the grain, with a kitchen that’s 100% gluten-free! So, you can relax, indulge and eat absolutely anything you fancy. We’ll see you at the bar.

Black Mocha

Seeing all the sights of Brighton can be exhausting, so make time for a pit stop at this quirky cafe. Every day there’s a new selection of gluten free cakes and savoury bakes on sale here. They also do a cracking dark hot chocolate.

Cloud 9

If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth you’ll love Cloud 9. There are two outposts of this cake shop in Brighton, you can find them in The Lanes and in Kensington Gardens. It’s a real festival of sugar here, with a vast selection of gluten free cakes and cupcakes, as well as vegan bakes and ice cream. The chocolate cheesecake brownies are not to be missed. You’ve been warned!

Little Bird

It’s all about the tea and cake at Little Bird, a great Brighton cafe catering for coeliacs and those on gluten-free diets. There are always gluten-free bakes on sale here, as well as vegan bakes which are often gluten-free too. You can get your cake to take away, so make sure you grab some for the train journey back to London.

Pizza Face

We couldn’t talk about gluten-free food in Brighton without mentioning Pizza Face! This is a fabulous restaurant serving gluten-free pizzas with a huge array of different toppings. Our favourite is Jakub – an indulgent pizza topped with chorizo, salami, caramelised onion, mascarpone, dried chilli and oregano. We’re drooling already, and we’re not ashamed to admit it.

Wolfies of Hove

Fish and chips is a British classic, especially at the seaside! Often those on gluten-free diets are forced to forgo this scrumptious treat, but not in Brighton. At Wolfies and Hove you can tuck into gluten free fish and chips and even gluten-free battered sausages, made with German bratwurst. There’s a separate fryer for all gluten-free products so you don’t need to worry about cross-contamination, either.

Bagelman

If you’re on the hunt for a quick lunch in Brighton you can’t go wrong at Bagelman. The gluten-free bagels are delicious and they have a wonderful choice of fillings. You don’t see gluten-free bagels very often so this is one Brighton café you won’t want to miss!

So, if you’re heading to Brighton soon you can rest assured that your gluten-free diet is well and truly catered for. In fact, we’d go so far as to say you’ll eat like a King!
