I have been absolutely DYING to visit The Custom House in Barnstaple, North Devon, since it relaunched as a burger restaurant and when I finally got to go for my birthday meal, I wasn’t disappointed!
When the restaurant first opened I discovered they offered gluten free burger buns and that was it, I absolutely had to go.
But what I was most impressed with (apart from the AMAZING food!) when I did go, was the level of service we got.
In fact, from the gluten free knowledge, amazing service and locally-sourced food, the meal we ate couldn’t have been better!
Matt, the owner, was really helpful – going through the menu telling me what I could and couldn’t eat, and even letting me have my own gluten free garlic bread made from one of the GF burger buns!
For starters I took up the offer of the gluten free (cheesy!) garlic bread – it’s one of my fave foods and I always want to cry watching everyone else devour it in resturants!
It was absolutely delicious – and I couldn’t wait for my burger!
You put together a burger of your choice from more than 544,320 combinations (simpler than it sounds!) – I chose to have a beef burger (beef or chicken options are gluten free) on a gf bun with lettuce, red onion, olives, swiss cheese and sweet chilli sauce.
And it was absolutely amazing!!
For £8.95 you get a burger stuffed full of delicious fillings, and a side portion of yummy chips.
And if you don’t like burgers, they even do gluten free pasta – perhaps I shall try this next!
I absolutely loved this restaurant (and so did all my ‘normal’ gluten-ous friends!) – and I can’t wait to go back again as soon as possible! If you’re in North Devon there is no excuse not to go – everyone coeliac or not should try it!!
