“I live in London and have a 5 year old who’s severely allergic to nuts and mustard. We eat out often and have found almost all of the places we visit are happy to accommodate us. We usually phone in advance to double check and always make it clear we’d rather they said “no” than take a risk. However no restaurant will ever guarantee they are 100% nut free.
For us, the absolute hands down winner is Wagamamas. Their allergy menu is very easy to navigate and the food is quick, plentiful and yummy…
To be honest, I think a lot of it comes down to your attitude (and more often than not who you speak to on the day). Don’t get me wrong, I’d never deliberately expose my child to unnecessary risk however I refuse to let anaphylaxis control the whole family. For us, eating out is a big part of how we socialise and so far we’ve always had positive experiences. Whether this is down to luck rather than judgment remains to be seen…”
