Cambridgeshire

Bella Italia, Cambridge Leisure Park

They have a limited selection of food for nut allergies but are extremely clued-up about it, they were very reassuring when we ordered and checked everything with the chef. They have comprehensive allergy info online too. My son had an adult Pizza Margarita which was gorgeous, my daughter had  a gluten-free and nut free kids Margarita Pizza, also yummy ! Only one nut free dessert – an orange ice lolly but I would still recommend them based their knowledge and the care and attention they gave us !

Hertfordshire

Inn on the Park, St Albans

“I’m the mum of a three year old with a peanut allergy and this is my review of Inn On The Park, a cafe in Verulamium Park, St. Albans! Open pretty much all day every day, it was the 2012 winner of the ‘Most Family Friendly Venue’ at the St. Albans Food and Drink Festival. However the reason it gets my vote is that I recently contacted the owner, Wendy Hooper, to ask about whether or not peanuts are used in the kitchens at the Inn. Wendy said that the staff are aware of allergies, having had recent training, however peanut butter was on the menu… not so good for us! However, after several emails backwards and forwards, with Wendy then asking me a whole host of questions about peanut allergy, she suddenly sent me an amazing email saying that she’d decided to completely remove peanut butter from the daytime menu and no longer serve peanuts in the evening. The site is now peanut free! Aside from the yummy cakes, icecream, toasties etc. it is lovely to meet someone who listens and then is proactive about doing something in response. Wendy couldn’t have been more helpful or informative regarding the ingredients used in the cafe and in making positive changes. Thank you so much! Highly recommended!”

“Pizza Hut is great for kids my 5 yr old had never been to a kids party where he could eat other than what we had take with us! Pleasantly surprised just how organised pizza hut were they had their allergy folder which listed every ingredient U would want on ur pizza all colour coded & they label pizza b4 it goes into stove:-) my son is egg allergic too so more tricky but he could eat 90% of everything & the ice cream too which is normally a No No! He was so excited but couldn’t understand why he could eat the same as his friends twas very emotional for us to watch! Pizza Express is also the same & we have another friends party to go to in jan there so will report back! FYI it was for the “make ur own pizza party”! def recommend it”

“Fabulous cafe serving delicious home-cooked food. The owner’s son has a nut allergy so we felt completely at ease – they totally get it!”
