Gluten Free Dishes

The issue of food being Gluten free is more important now than ever. At the Boxty House, we always build our menu taking this into account and try to create as many dishes as possible that are suitable for those who either have to or simply choose to avoid gluten in their diets.

All our boxty dishes are Gluten Free and made from Doves Gluten-free Flour (although we are trying other blends and varieties). Doves Gluten Free Flour is a blend made from  Rice, Potato, Tapioca, Maize & Buckwheat.  Our sauces are thickened with either potato starch, corn flour or natural reduction. The same with our soups – while the ingredients will vary we will never thicken with gluten.

We also never put any ingredient with Gluten into our fry. This means that our chips and boxty fries are perfect for anyone looking to avoid gluten. When its on the menu, we also make a Gluten-free Batter. We haven’t cracked the breads yet, but we do have Boxty Bread and Water Biscuits on site which are both made without gluten.

For a quick guide, the following current menu items are made without using Gluten. Generally, items which contain Gluten are listed on the menu with the number 1 relating to our allergen listings. However, we would always recommend that if it is a case of an allergy, be it to wheat or any other allergy, that you inform your server so as to help us avoid any possibility of cross contamination.
