Pub operator JD Wetherspoon introduces gluten-free menu

JD Wetherspoon has introduced a gluten-free menu suitable for customers that suffer from coeliac disease.

Customers at Wetherspoon's will now be able to chose from gluten-free meals including BBQ chicken melt, pork loin steaks, chicken korma, lamb rogan josh as well as mint chocolate ice-cream bombe for dessert.

Wetherspoon food development manager Jameson Robinson said: "We are keen to offer people with coeliac disease as wide a choice of meals as possible and that is borne out by our gluten-free menu.

"We have won praise from Coeliac UK for including so many menu items produced with gluten-free ingredients."

The menu will also be featured on the Coeliac UK website, which provides support and advice for those with the auto-immune disease.

Those affected by Coeliac disease produce anti-bodies that attack their own tissues. Attacks are triggered by gluten; a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. One percent of the UK population are thought to suffer.
