Nut allergy friendly restaurant directory

Welcome to the restaurant directory!

Click HERE to enter the directory, where you will find recommendations (by other nut mums!) of restaurants, pubs and cafés for people with nut allergies.

By way of background…

Last summer, stood outside the Tower of London, with two hungry children, I discovered that the tub of cream cheese I had brought to make up bagels had exploded inside my bag. We needed to buy food on the go. Looking around, we spotted branches of EAT, Pret A Manger, Subway and more. Each with queues out of the door. Which was our best bet for finding a nut free sandwich for our son? We didn’t know.

It struck me that, rather than guess where to try first, what was needed was an online directory of safe places to eat out with a nut allergy. Nut mums and dads are venturing into eateries every day asking essentially the same question: “can you provide a safe meal for my nut allergic child?”. Let’s pool that knowledge.

Using the directory

So here’s the start of a nut allergy friendly restaurant directory. Ultimately, I’d like it to become a resource that means wherever you are in the UK, you can find a nut allergy friendly restaurant that a fellow nut allergy parent has road tested before you, which inspired confidence in the way it catered for nut allergies.

  1. We recently went to Butlins at Skegness. We only ate out twice, both times I asked for the allergen menu which they do not have, however the chefs in both the Italian and the pub came out of the busy kitchens to talk the menu through with me and offered alternatives to the desserts for my son. Very helpful and reassuring..most surprising.
