The Real Food Café to host second Gluten Free Fortnight


The Real Food Café in Tyndrum will be holding its own Gluten Free Fortnight, following the success of the inaugural event in 2019.

The roadside diner, which has been serving award-winning gluten free dishes for over a decade, is recognised as an A grade Coeliac UK Accredited Caterer.

From 15th-31st October, the café will be serving a specially created gluten free menu alongside vegan dishes and gluten free beer.

The menu will feature gluten free fish and chips as well as new dishes such as Macsween battered sliced haggis, Letterfinlay sausage, tacos, smoked haddock kedgeree and salted caramel brownies.

The event is sponsored by Goldensheaf, which provides the café with both its regular and gluten free batter mix, and Bellfield Brewery, an Edinburgh based gluten free brewery. During the event, the café will be serving 330ml bottles of Bellfield’s Lawless Village IPA and its Bohemian Pilsner.

Warren Kidney, account manager, Kerry Foods (Scotland), says: “Kerry Foods is looking forward to being part of Gluten Free Fortnight, we were part of the previous event which was a real success. Our Goldensheaf Gluten Free Batter Mix is made only 55 miles away in our manufacturing site just outside Glasgow. It is renowned for its quality, heritage and sustainability. We hope all the customers enjoy this Gluten Free Fortnight as much as they did the last one.”

Sarah Heward, co-owner of The Real Food Café, adds: “We launched Gluten Free Fortnight back in 2019 on the back of the loyal gluten free following we have established. We were one of the first in our industry to start serving gluten free dishes and we want to give people suffering from gluten intolerances the chance to enjoy a specific gluten free event.

“I am so pleased that Goldensheaf has come back on board this year and that Bellfield Brewery is now involved. We will continue to grow the event each year and expand our offering. I am really looking forward to it and know that the event is keenly anticipated by those following a gluten free diet across Scotland and beyond.”
